    Trump-appointed election official says president’s claims are ‘baffling’ and court evidence ‘laughable’

    Ben Hovland has said evidence presented in court by Donald Trump’s team has been ‘laughable'


    A Trump-appointed election official has slammed the outgoing president’s claims as “baffling” and his legal challenges “laughable” following the Republican’s election defeat.


    Donald Trump has made baseless claims over widespread voter fraud during the US presidential election that he lost – which security officials have called the "most secure in American history".


    When asked about Mr Trump claiming millions of votes towards him had been deleted by software, Ben Hovland from the Elections Assistance Commission (EAC) said: “Number one, it is pretty baffling.

    "Number two, I just wish that if claims like that were going to be made, they would actually be backed up with something credible."

    He told MIT Technology Review that statements like these “cause Americans to lose confidence in the process”, which was “really concerning”.

    That last sentence really should be what the GOP and Conservative media need to focus on. Trump is undermining democracy and by extension the whole nation while he and his supporters hypocritically claim Biden and this election is undermining the nation. It is a classic case of projection.

    As Obama said, the GOP needs to stop humoring Trump and just flat out come and put a stop to Trump's baseless claims.

    I'm coming around to the idea that this is a money grift.

    Just like Trump donating his salary but choosing to spend 300 times that amount of taxpayers money at his personal businesses.

    They are fundraising like crazy among his base and while the titles of the letters are about election fraud court cases the small print says the money can be used to pay down campaign debt or even go to the GOP coffers.

    If he's wrong, then why are all of Trump's lawsuits getting immediately thrown out, even by Conservative judges?

    I think instead of rocking back and forth in the corner repeating "TDS" over and over like Rain Man, it might be time to look in the mirror and maybe consider the possibility that you may have a problem.

    Probably a bit of both, trying to scam his supporters and trying to entrech the belief the election was stolen.

    90% of posts from dems on the front page are just raging over Trump and Republicans.

    Biden won time to move on

    Cleary Trump and his supporters haven't moved on, ergo the O.P.

    You would much rather have us all ignore the baseless accusations from Trump regarding the election. As long as Trump and his surrogates keep pushing the lie the election was stolen, some of us will bring it up.

    I bet the people who donate to religious frauds like Jim Bakker and Kenneth Copeland are the same ones donating to Trumps fake voter fraud fund.
