Democrats are attempting everything within their power to stop all investigations into the election results. CNN called it for Biden and that’s good enough for them.
Michigan, where a proper count could reverse the outcome, is being the most resistant. This should come as no surprise given Michigan’s recent history of destruction and chaos at the hands of its uber-liberal population.
The Michigan Court of Appeals rejected the Trump campaigns appeal for a recount, citing they have not submitted nearly enough documentation to warrant their claims of fraud.
The appeal was filed only after a previous appeal seeking “meaningful access” to absentee ballots was tossed out of court by Michigan Judge Cynthia Stephens.
Stephens said the previous appeal had been filed only hours before the counting came to an end. Stephens also said how sending the appeal to the state’s chief election officer, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, was the incorrect channel because she has nothing to do with the logistics of how the count is tabulated.
The appeal makes the claim that Benson was allowing votes to be counted without bipartisan witnessing. Their accusation is that she undermined the “constitutional right of all Michigan voters … to participate in fair and lawful elections.”
The appeal read, “These Michigan citizens’ constitutional rights are being violated by Secretary Benson’s failure to prevent unlawful ballots to be processed and her failure to ensure that statutorily-authorized challengers have a right to do their job.”
It should come as no surprise that Benson has denied these allegations.
Trump attorneys wrote, “Immediate consideration is necessary because this case concerns the process by which Michigan is conducting the ongoing presidential election. The results of the election in Michigan may determine who wins the presidential election nationwide.”
The Michigan Appeals Court, not wanting to hear the appeal, informed the attorneys that they must refile their claim due to missing documents and incomplete paperwork. In all probability though, even a refile is destined to meet the same fate.
In a letter, the Michigan Court of Appeals informed the lawyers, “Unless the above is filed within 21 days of the date of this letter, your case may be dismissed for failure to pursue the case in conformity with the rules.”
Not only was this a slap in the face of justice, but it gets worse. The court made the additional information needed almost out of the realm of possibilities to produce, especially in that short of a timeframe.
The letter states how the initial filing did not include copies of the judge’s order, or a docket from the lower court, or a register of actions, or a transcript of the lower court hearing, or, or, or… They will also require extra copies of a brief and of an official transcript, or at least proper evidence that a transcript has been ordered.
One of the attorneys representing the Trump campaign in Michigan, Thor Hearne, said the paperwork was not included in the initial motion to appeal due to it being filed so shortly after the Court of Claims dismissed their initial case.
Hearne was adamant when he said, “In a normal appeal process, whether it be in Michigan or any other court, you have to build the appellate record. In election litigation, you’re trying to do that on steroids and have it done in 12 hours. And that means sometimes you don’t have the documents immediately.”
He went on to say, “as soon as they come into our possession,” the documents will be filed. Hearne feels certain that, once all of the requirements are ridiculously met, the Court of Claims ruling will be immediately overturned by the Court of Appeals.
So try as they may, Michigan is about to find themselves in such deep litigation they will have no other choice than to honor the appeals and turn the state red. As it should have shown all along.
