According to a report at the Daily Beast, Russian state media has taken to running Fox News clips of host Sean Hannity defending President Donald Trump from allegations contained in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

As Lachlan Markay writes, “Russian state media is nonetheless trumpeting the reaction of U.S. conservatives to the report, which found that the Trump campaign was not complicit in those election-meddling efforts, as evidence of a broad anti-Russian conspiracy in the U.S. And it’s using at least one prominent American conservative voice to do so.”

To wit: coverage and commentary on the report from Sean Hannity, who might possibly be Trump’s biggest defender.

“The Russian government-owned Rossiya 1 news channel recently broadcasted excerpts from Fox News primetime host Sean Hannity’s on-air monologue, which hammered ‘media hysteria’ over the report and allegations of campaign ‘collusion’ with the Russian government,” Lachlan reports.

The report is based upon a tweet from Russia media observer Julia Davis which can be seen below:

Trump’s team files fifth demand for Georgia to audit their ballot signatures as their campaign to overturn the election fizzles

President Donald Trump's campaign has filed its fifth demand for the state of Georgia to audit the signatures on ballots.

The statement from the Trump team said that the "Georgia secretary of state should perform an immediate audit of the signatures on all absentee ballot applications and absentee ballot envelopes received for the Nov. 3 General Election. The Trump Campaign estimates that between 38,250 and 45,626 illegal votes from absentee ballots alone were cast in the state of Georgia -- far beyond the Biden-Harris ticket's current margin of 12,670 votes."

Supreme Court hearing gets awkward as conservative Alito runs roughshod over chief justice Roberts

Published

President Trump is pressing the U.S. Supreme Court to allow him to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census count -- a move that goes against more than 200 years of practice where non-citizen residents, even those in the U.S. illegally, were among those counted.

While questioning New York Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, conservative Justice Samuel Alito said that the prospect of submitting two documents, one detailing census numbers of every person inside the U.S. and another detailing numbers that exclude undocumented immigrants inside the U.S. "seems like a totally meaningless formality."
