Hoyer on Trump election challenges: 'I think this borders on treason'

Mr. Graham, who has acknowledged reaching out to other election officials in states where Mr. Trump narrowly lost, said that was ridiculous.

Only Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) has strongly denounced Trump's actions as "undemocratic".

He also said Trump does not support another lockdown or school closure, indicating the president's displeasure with New York City's recent decision to close public schools.

Uygur, who is no fan of Trump, doesn't think Biden is doing enough to combat Trump's various claims that he lost the election because of widespread voter fraud.

Republican legislative leaders from MI are scheduled to visit the White House on Friday at Trump's request, a source in MI said, adding the lawmakers planned to hear what the president had to say. After that, the losing campaign has two business days to request a recount as, according to state law, the margin between candidates is less than 0.5%.

"It is hard to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American president", he wrote. The two GOP officials eventually agreed to certify the results.

Biden won MI by more than 150,000 votes, a margin 15 times larger than Trump's when he won the state four years ago.

United States President-elect Joe Biden has assailed the Trump administration's lack of cooperation on the presidential transition, which he says hinders his team's ability to get up-to-date information on the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Trump's lawyers, some Pennsylvania counties failed to observe the democratic principle of allowing "meaningful observers" to be part of the vote verification, a practice they intimated is practised even in third-world nations such as the Philippines, Namibia, Haiti and Mexico. "I'm confident he knows he hasn't won, and is not going to win, and we're going to be sworn in on January 20".

At the White House, Vice President Mike Pence told reporters that a vaccine could be available across the USA in "a few short weeks".

The president-elect has also promised to work closely with Republicans in Congress to execute his governing agenda, but so far, he has focused his congressional outreach on his leading Democratic allies.

Her refusal to reach an "ascertainment" also keeps Biden from getting top security meetings meant to keep future presidents informed of myriad global challenges. The state is expected to certify Biden's victory on Friday.

This is a hard legal argument since the campaign is asking a court to override the vote of millions of Americans because of relatively minor alleged voting irregularities.

A Georgia judge is set to hear a separate election-related lawsuit on Thursday after a conservative attorney tried to legally block the certification of election results. "There are a lot of allegations out there and that's exactly why we have the court system", she said.

That recount would be done using scanners that read and tally the votes and would be paid for by the counties, the secretary of state's office has said.

Trump now wants to get even and said he is looking to get back at the Democratic Party for championing Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign's Russian Federation ties, CNN reported, citing the source. It's an open attempt to intimate election officials. Chuck Callesto and Omar Navarro, who both have run unsuccessfully for Congress, amplified unsubstantiated claims of a rigged election raised by Sidney Powell, an election lawyer for Trump, which relied on dubious connections to Venezuela.

And on Thursday, the Trump campaign withdrew its last lawsuit in MI, according to Politico.
