Trump now explicitly asking state legislatures to overturn the election.
The Trump legal team is asking state legislatures to overturn the election despite refusing to make any of their supposed evidence public, and ridiculing reporters for asking to see it.

Meanwhile, judges keep saying they're not being shown any evidence.

BREAKING: Judge in Pennsylvania tosses Trump campaign lawsuit, says they have presented no compelling evidence of fraud or mismanagement.
The ruling is just a wholesale evisceration of the Trump legal team's argument and even their competence. He indicates that they misunderstood basic legal tenets and are seeking remedies — like tossing hundreds of thousands of votes — that don't remotely match the complaint.

NEW: Trump will be out of power in January, but the congressional investigations into his finances and his alleged obstruction are poised to continue as House Dems hope to rack up hard-fought wins in court.

w/ @AndrewDesiderio…
House legal efforts to access Trump’s financial records and to force ex-WH counsel Don McGahn to testify are both scheduled to linger into next year.

Pelosi and Biden will hold enormous sway over what happens to the litigation in those cases.…
Does Biden try to turn the page on the Trump era? Will he drop objections to House subpoenas? Does he try to fight them on narrower grounds to protect Executive Branch?

GRAHAM keeps omitting that the document sent from the CIA to FBI about Clinton concocting collusion narrative was a *Russian* allegation, not verified by U.S.

Also, Clinton was publicly accusing Trump of links to Russiaa after Trump's "Russia, if you're listening" presser.
MCCABE says that after Trump fired Comey and told the Russians it relieved pressure on him, "we had many reasons at that point to believe that the president himself might pose a danger to national security."
