Trump efforts to flip election results raise legal, ethical questions

As President Trump focuses his efforts to overturn the results of the election on Michigan, election law experts say his contacts with Wolverine State Republicans raise serious ethical and legal concerns.

In recent days, Trump has reached out to Republican members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers who had, after initially resisting, voted to certify the county’s election results. Those members, after speaking with Trump, would later sign an affidavit in an attempt to rescind their votes.

The president also extended an invitation to Michigan lawmakers to come to the White House on Friday. One of those lawmakers, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mikey Shirkey, greeted by demonstrators when he arrived in Washington Friday morning, declined to respond to questions from reporters.

These efforts by the president raise thorny ethical and legal questions, legal experts say.

4. It sure does

Will anyone suffer any consequences for it? I'm not holding my breath. Consequences are for poor people.

5. Folks,this A-Hole could care less

about anyone other than himself. This is a Voting Rights law violation period. He is not only wanting to deny persons of Color their rights,but also you as a Democratic Party Voter. Think about it.


We are all in this thing together,we need Law suits filed against the Trump Campaign in every State for attempt too,or Violate Voters Rights.
