President Donald Trump ’s re-election campaign has dismissed its final lawsuit against the electoral process in Michigan on Thursday, as The vast majority of their lawsuits have meanwhile proven frivolous, with multiple firms that previously signed up to represent the campaign having abruptly

In their lawsuit, filed on Friday in the US District Court for the District of Columbia, the group alleges that the Trump campaign is trying to suppress hundreds of thousands of votes, including many cast by Black voters, by challenging the results of the election. The Trump campaign has targeted Wayne County, which encompasses majority-Black Detroit, in its efforts to investigate any cases of voter fraud.

As Trump continues to unleash debunked claims of mail-in voter fraud in reaction to his loss to President-elect Joe Biden, the Trump campaign has asked several state and local voting officials to hold off on certifying the official results, which, according to the plaintiffs, is "compromising the integrity of the election process" and "unlawfully interfering with the will of the voters."

President Trump's defeat may give Supreme Court a rest from personal, policy lawsuits

  President Trump's defeat may give Supreme Court a rest from personal, policy lawsuits Many cases tied to Trump's policies or personal entanglements are likely to become moot or, at least, undeserving of the Supreme Court's attention.Even in the autumn of his presidency, little has changed. The administration came before the justices the week after Election Day in hopes of dismantling the Affordable Care Act, perhaps the most celebrated achievement of his predecessor. Later this month, it will defend its plan to exclude noncitizens from the census count used to apportion seats in the House of Representatives.

Four voters have filed a federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan . They claim that “sufficient evidence” exists “to If this happens, then the state would flip in President Trump ’s favor.

The Trump team launched a lawsuit in Michigan on 11 November alleging foul play in the vote count. On Wednesday, Michigan 's Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced that all of the counties had voted to certify the results of the 3 November election.

"President Trump and his campaign have repeatedly—and falsely—raised the specter of widespread fraud in Detroit and other cities with large Black populations, including Philadelphia, Milwaukee, and Atlanta, in an effort to suggest votes from those cities should not be counted," the lawsuit added.

The group's lawsuit was filed after Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani said during a press conference that the president's campaign team identified 300,000 "illegitimate ballots" that were cast in Detroit. Giuliani provided no specifics to his allegations of fraud.

On November 17, Wayne County made international news when the two Republican members on the county's Board of Canvassers, which legally certifies local election results, initially refused to sign off on officiating the results. After an outcry, the GOP members backtracked and joined their two Democratic colleagues in certifying the results.

  Fact check: Fake Trump tweet echoing Halsey song lyrics originally began as a joke A doctored image shows Trump tweeted Halsey lyrics about losing the election. This fake tweet, which doesn't appear on his profile, was a joke.“I was red… and you liked him cause he was blue.. then you touched me.. and i was a lilac sky.. but then you all decided that purple just wasn’t for you,” reads an Instagram post containing what appears to be a quote of a tweet from Trump.

Monica Palmer, one of the GOP members, even received a personal phone call from Trump. After being pressed, she denied that he tried to influence her vote.

On November 18, the GOP members then tried to rescind their vote to certify the results, which was swatted down by the office of Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson due to its legal impracticality.

On November 20, Michigan GOP legislative leaders visited the White House as a result of an invitation from Trump, which many felt was another step in seeking to invalidate the state's votes and install pro-Trump electors who would select the president in the Electoral College. After the meeting, the leaders affirmed that the state would certify Biden's win.

Biden won Michigan and its 16 electoral votes by a 51%-48% margin, leading by 160,000 votes statewide. He won Wayne County, which has been a Democratic stronghold for generations, by a massive 332,000-vote margin (68%-30%).
