OUCH! Trump Legal Team’s Supposed Evidence of Fraud is From the WRONG STATE

By Charlie Nash Nov 20th, 2020, 11:12 am

President Donald Trump’s lawyers have seemingly confused Michigan with Minnesota in an affidavit attempting to prove 2020 election fraud.

In their effort to demonstrate voter irregularities in the state of Michigan — which Trump was projected to have lost to Joe Biden — Trump’s lawyers appeared to mistake Michigan’s abbreviation “MI” for Minnesota.

{snip}

On his Power Line blog, Thursday, John Hinderaker pointed out the major error.

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/11/do-trumps-lawyers-know-what-they-are-doing.php

“Here’s the problem: the townships and precincts listed in paragraphs 11 and 17 of the affidavit are not in Michigan. They are in Minnesota,” Hinderaker declared. “Monticello, Albertville, Lake Lillian, Houston, Brownsville, Runeberg, Wolf Lake, Height of Land, Detroit Lakes, Frazee, Kandiyohi–these are all towns in Minnesota.”

I mean, all the citizens of the newly formed Province of Michigan would be automatic citizens of Canada, right?

8. These lawyers should be penallized, and Rudy should be disbarred

Why would the legal community want to have someone like Rudy in their lists as an active lawyer? He is a disgrace making the legal profession look horrible, not that it needs any help from Rudy, but Rudy is out there where no lawyer has gone before.

12. This is interesting but I think you should delete the right wing source

and just leave the two others.

Powerline is probably right about the error, but Mediaite would be a better source to have here.

Not a source that falsely says:

"There is circumstantial evidence of more than a normal amount of voter fraud in this year’s election, but Trump’s lawyers have not yet presented most of the evidence" and -- about the Republican lawyers pushing these claims: "I hope their claims turn out to be well-founded and provable."

21. I understand your concern, but:

I give credit to the person who did the work or made the discovery. Power Line did the work. They get the credit.

You will never see me use the odious Rawstory as a "source."

22. When you post a rightwing source, you give credit to its false claims also

Like its false claim that there has been more than the usual amount of fraud in this election.

And you help condition some readers into trusting it as a source. Just because they were right in this particular case doesn't mean they're a source people should rely on.

the proof is that the University of Michigan's slogan is M go Blue. So that also makes other M states go blue like Minnesota. That's absolute evidence of deep state conspiracy.

Giuliani’s Rant About Suspicious Voting Was Based On A Massive Error
A Trump campaign lawsuit mastermind mixed numbers from Michigan and Minnesota to come up with fake overvote percentages.

Rudy Giuliani’s epic rant in his latest wild news conference about suspicious voting in Michigan was based on a glaring mistake: President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer was complaining about vote counts in Minnesota districts, not in Michigan.

That obliterated Giuliani’s claims Thursday of discrepancies in district populations and suspiciously large voter turnouts. The figures mangled overvote percentages by comparing the number of expected district votes in one state to the populations of completely unrelated districts in another state.

“In Michigan and Wisconsin, we have overvotes in numerous precincts of 150%, 200% and 300%,” Giuliani gloated in one of his imagined “gotcha” moments.

The man in charge of Trump’s assault on election results also argued that there were more votes than voters in some districts — again, because he confused the states.

The erroneous numbers used by Giuliani and others on the legal team challenging presidential election results were based on an affidavit submitted — and already thrown out by one court — by self-proclaimed election fraud expert and failed Texas congressional candidate, Russ Ramsland, the Powerline blog first reported Thursday.
