WATCH: Criminal investigation launched to investigate Republican voter fraud in North Carolina congressional race

Published

on

The Wake County District Attorney, Lorrin Freeman, revealed on Monday the existence of an active criminal investigation to “potential voting irregularities” in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, The News Observer reports.

The investigation began early this year and incorporates allegations from 2016 in addition to the 2018 primary and general election.

The state elections board has declined twice to certify the 9th congressional district race between Republican Mark Harris and Democrat Dan McCready.

To explain the importance, MSNBC anchor Ari Melber brought on Gerry Cohen, a former special counsel for the North Carolina General Assembly, who worked for the legislature for almost four decades.

“There’s been allegations of fraud and mail-in absentee voting in Bladen County in both the May Republican primary and the general election,” Cohen explained. “Just in the last half hour, the Raleigh District Attorney announced she has had an active criminal investigation since the May primary.”

“It’s alleged that perhaps absentee ballot applications were fraudulently obtained — ballots were taken from voters and destroyed or marked for a certain candidate,” he continued.

“There’s an unusually high number of black and Native American voters in that area who applied for absentee ballots and never returned them,” he added.

Trump’s lawyers are trying to tell Appeals Court they actually won the taxes lawsuit — but are still appealing

Published

on

President Donald Trump's lawyers sent out a bizarre letter to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, making the case that they actually won their case to keep the president's taxes a secret. It's an odd take given that they're filing for an appeal.

Oct. 7, a federal judge dismissed Trump's efforts in a 75-page opinion calling the White House claim "extraordinary."

U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero explained that no occupant of the White House enjoys "absolute immunity from criminal process of any kind." Such a position "would constitute an overreach of executive power."

Nate Silver claps back at right-wing pollster for accusing him of fraud

Published

on

One of the worst-performing national pollsters in the 2018 election cycle was Rasmussen Reports, a right-leaning outfit that is consistently the only one to show President Donald Trump with a net positive approval rating. In 2018, Rasmussen showed Republicans leading the generic congressional ballot by 1 point — but Democrats won the popular vote by 8.4 points.

Nonetheless, Rasmussen is proud of its methodology and particularly irritated when polling analyst and FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver points out their inaccuracy. Over the past two weeks, they have twice accused him of "fraud" and characterized his analyses as "corrupt."

Trump told Republicans he didn’t care ‘about terrorists 7,000 miles away’

Published

President Donald Trump reportedly doesn't care about terrorists, according to sources inside the room after Democrats abandoned the Wednesday meeting with the president.

Washington Post Congressional reporter Mike DeBonis said that the president said "several times" in the meeting that he isn't concerned about terrorists that live 7,000 miles away.

The source said that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) had to remind the president that the Sept. 11 terrorists "came from 7,000 away" themselves.

The president has neglected to understand terrorists can attack the U.S. on North American soil as well as at embassies, military bases, international sporting events, or even Trump's properties. It would be simple for ISIS to use a car bomb to attack Trump's property in Indonesia, as an example.
