A legal attack from Trump and a request to start investigations. and obstruction of Biden
President Donald Trump on Tuesday continued his legal battles to challenge the outcome of the presidential election, after Attorney General William Barr asked federal prosecutors to investigate any “significant” allegations of Election Personalities.
Barr’s instructions to prosecutors prompted the lawyer overseeing the investigation into any vote-rigging to resign in protest.
This followed two days of criticism of election integrity by Trump and his Republican allies, who claimed without evidence of wide spread manipulation.
Trump has yet to concede that Democrat Joe Biden, who on Saturday won more than 270 electoral college votes to win the presidency, has yet to win the presidency.
Richard Pilger, who for years served as director of the Electoral Crimes Branch, announced in an internal e-mail to his administration employees that he would resign after learning of the “new policy and its implications.”
The Biden campaign said Barr is fueling Trump’s un reason able claims.
Earlier on Monday, the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit to prevent Pennsylvania officials from officially declaring Biden’s victory in the state.
The suit claimed that the state’s postal voting system violated the U.S. Constitution by establishing an “illegal two-tier voting system” where personal voting is subject to more rigorous oversight than post voting.
