Rudy Giuliani here claiming Wayne County hasn't certified its votes, even though it certified its votes on Tuesday evening.

The Republicans who voted to certify, in affidavits above they are basically trying to take back their votes Image
Spokeswoman for Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson:

"Yes the vote is still certified. There is no legal mechanism for them to rescind their vote. Their job is done and the next step in the process is for the Board of State Canvassers to meet and certify."
City of Detroit asks court to strike claims in the Trump campaign's Michigan dismissal, says they were "submitted for an improper purpose: to make a gratuitous, public statement ... before the Court could reject their baseless claims of election fraud"

Here's the memo William Barr issued today to US attorneys regarding the election "post-voting election irregularity inquiries," as first reported by AP

beta.documentcloud.org/documents/2040…
It authorizes investigations "if there are clear and apparently-credible allegations of irregularities that, if true, could potentially impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual State."

Biden campaign advisor Bob Bauer: "It is deeply unfortunate that the Attorney General Barr chose to issue a memorandum that will only fuel the 'specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims' he professes to guard against."

Court hearing in the GOP Nevada case kicking off in 5 minutes.

Case is brought by four Nevada Republicans, rather than Trump campaign (despite the press conference they held yesterday)
GOP plaintiffs alleged that one of them was not allowed to vote in person because they had cast a mail ballot, which they deny.

Also claims issues with Clark County's signature verification software and that they weren't allowed to observe the vote count

The Nevada Secretary of State, Barbara Cegavske (a Republican), responded in a filing that the claims are "absurd", "speculative", and "lack a factual or legal basis"

Trump campaign lawyer: "Yes."

Diamond: "I'm sorry, then what's your problem?"
