Donald Trump lost the 2020 election convincingly. And as he has done throughout his business career, the president responded to failure by suing everyone and everything.
But the Trump administration had a very difficult time in the courtroom. Law firms like Jones Day quickly decided against representing Donald Trump after seeing how bad their efforts were in court of public opinion.
And last night the Elite Strike Force lost a member in Sidney Powell. Despite the fact that the conspiracy-loving Powell is obviously a member of the legal team, the White House now claims it wasn't her.
The team has now lost 35 of 36 cases in court. So the next strategy was to convince Republican voters in the states not to vote for Biden. That attempt failed in Michigan on Monday when the State Board of Canvassers confirmed Biden's victory in the state.
Chairman of the Board of Directors, Aaron Van Langevelde, said in a statement: “This Board of Directors must do its part to uphold the rule of law and comply with our legal obligation to confirm this election. I will support the proposal. "
THERE IT IS. Vice-Chairman Van Langevelde, before the board votes to confirm, says that complaints of electoral fraud need to be investigated, adding: "This board must do its part to uphold the rule of law and our legal obligation to confirm this election will support the application ""

Trump's legal team reacted quickly to the devastating loss. Jenna
Ellis was quick to issue a statement that read, “Certification by state officials is simply a procedural step. We will continue to fight electoral fraud across the country as we struggle to count all legal votes. Americans need to be sure that the end results are fair and legitimate. "
