Well. Interesting indeed.
The Supreme Court Has Ruled That They Can Order a New Presidential Election.
. The Trump campaign can introduce statistical evidence of voter fraud, and this evidence can be accepted as reliable if it is statistically sound.
Let’s summarize what we’ve learned:
- The Federal Courts do have jurisdiction to resolve claims of state and city ballot fraud that causes ballot dilution, even in Presidential elections.
- The Federal Courts can order a new election if necessary to address fraud, even in Presidential elections
- The Trump campaign will need to prove (a) specific acts of misconduct (b) involving willful or knowing ballot fraud © by state officials or private persons acting with state officials (d) that changed the outcome of the election.
- The Trump campaign can use expert testimony and statistical evidence to prove its case, but it needs some direct evidence too. (Remember that in a court of law, eyewitness testimony is considered direct evidence.)
Does the Trump team have the facts on its side to meet (a)-(d)? I don’t know. No one does yet. We’ll find out tomorrow when we see what his legal team files. It’s going to be one hell of a week.
