I was asked to lie about Hunter Biden, admits Ukrainian businessman

Hares Youssef claims he was promised a US visa in return for information that would damage Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, writes Manveen Rana

After an election campaign built on attacking the reputation of his rival’s son, Donald Trump is facing calls for a new legal investigation into his activities in Ukraine where he and his associates were looking for dirt on Hunter Biden.

The Stories of our Times podcast has spoken to a Ukrainian businessman who has admitted, for the first time, that he was asked to lie about Hunter Biden’s business dealings to damage Joe Biden’s reputation. In return, he was promised a US visa and legal immunity.

(Axios) Scoop: Trump privately discussing 2024 run

Source: Axios

President Trump has already told advisers he's thinking about running for president again in 2024, two sources familiar with the conversations tell Axios.

Why it matters: This is the clearest indication yet that Trump understands he has lost the 2020 election to Joe Biden — even as the president continues to falsely insist that he is the true winner, that there has been election fraud and that his team will fight to the end in the courts.

Presidents are limited to serving two terms but they need not be consecutive.

Officials with the Trump campaign and White House could not immediately be reached for comment.

John Lewis's former county tipped Biden into lead in Georgia

Source: The Hill

Civil Rights icon and former Rep. John Lewis's (D-Ga.) county in Georgia tipped Democratic nominee Joe Biden into the lead in the state Friday as mail-in ballots many counted from the area broke for the former vice president.

Lewis, who served in Congress from 1987 until his death in July of this year, represented Georgia's 5th Congressional District, which includes the Atlanta suburb of Clayton County.

At about 4:30 a.m. Friday, a release of ballots counted in Clayton County gave Biden a lead in the Southern state of 917 votes. He pushed his lead out to 1,096 votes after another batch of ballot results came in at about 6:00 a.m.

AP isn't reversing their projection of Arizona going to Biden

https://apps.npr.org/liveblogs/20201103-election/?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_term=nprnews#ap-on-its-arizona-call-402

The Associated Press called Arizona for Joe Biden early Wednesday morning, which is why organizations like NPR that rely on the AP for election calls show the Democratic nominee with a larger lead over President Trump. Fox News has also called Arizona for Biden, but other news organizations have not.

On Thursday, the AP explained its call this way: “The AP called the race in Arizona for Biden at 2:50 a.m. EST Wednesday after an analysis of ballots cast statewide concluded Trump could not catch up in the ballots left to be counted.”

The Trump campaign continues to question the call, though. With 88% of the expected vote now tallied in the state as of Thursday morning, Biden’s lead in the state has shrunk to just over 68,000. (The Trump campaign more broadly is launching a series of legal challenges to dispute results in various places, based on unsupported allegations of fraud and irregularities in the election.)

The AP has not said it will reverse the call. In a statement Thursday, executive editor Sally Buzbee said, “The Associated Press continues to watch and analyze vote count results from Arizona as they come in. We will follow the facts in all cases.”

Prominent Republicans are condemning President Trump's false victory claim

Source: CBS News

A number of prominent Republicans are condemning President Trump after he falsely claimed victory in a late-night press conference with millions of votes still to be counted.

Former Trump national security adviser John Bolton called the president's remarks a "disgrace" in an early Wednesday interview with the U.K.'s Sky News. He joins a growing list of Republicans — including former Ohio Governor John Kasich and former New Jersey governor Chris Christie — who have also criticized Mr. Trump's comments.

"He has cast doubt on the integrity of the entire electoral process clearly for his own personal advantage," Bolton told Sky News.

...

"This was not the time to make this argument," Christie said. "I think by prematurely doing this, if there is a flaw in it later, he has undercut his own credibility in calling attention to that flaw."

Trump campaign to request recount in Wisconsin

Source: The Hill

President Trump’s campaign said Wednesday it would request a recount in the state of Wisconsin, where Democratic nominee Joe Biden currently has a razor-thin lead.

“There have been reports of irregularities in several Wisconsin counties which raise serious doubts about the validity of the results. The President is well within the threshold to request a recount and we will immediately do so,” Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien said in a statement.

Biden is currently up by a little more than 20,000 votes in Wisconsin. No networks have called the state for Biden yet.

Wisconsin offers 10 electoral votes, which could prove crucial to either candidate. Trump won the state by less than 1 percentage point in 2016 and Biden has pushed to return the state to the blue category this year.

The RW is really pissed at Fox News

Most of the anger rooted for their early Arizona call. Consistent attacks coming from all directions (Trump co, Limbaugh, etc..) ... it's quite delicious.
