Officials finally found a case of a dead person voting, and it was a Republican pretending to be his dead mom to vote for Trump…
I interviewed the attorney representing the guy who pretended to be his dead mom to illegally vote for Trump. He said his client was attempting "civil disobedience."…
The attorney, Samuel Stretton, told me that Bruce Bartman plans to plead guilty once they're through with initial hearings.

SCOOP: I got a copy of the letter voting technology company Smartmatic sent to Fox News, demanding retractions for election conspiracy theories. It accuses Fox of "a concerted disinformation campaign" that's led to death threats against its employees.…
The Smartmatic letter names Fox News hosts Lou Dobbs, Jesse Watters, and Maria Bartiromo as individuals who spread the conspiracy theories. A spokesperson told me that suing them individually is an option on the table.…
"This retraction must be done with the same intensity and level of coverage that you used to defame the company in the first place."…
