Thanks to the House Intelligence Committee impeachment hearings, Rep. Devin Nunes has the media spotlight trained upon him. Now, a Democrat is taking advantage of the increased scrutiny in a bid to unseat the California Republican.
Speaking to The Washington Post, Latino business executive, Phil Arballo, said that he saw a huge spike in contributions and overall interest in his campaign since the start of the hearings, in which Nunes played a key role, to the tune of $310,000 in donations. His Twitter follower count also surged to almost 150,000.
“We want to show people this is who he is now,” Arballo said, speaking of Nunes. “It’s not as an active representative of the 22nd, it’s as a protector of this administration, its scandals and its corruption.”
“If he loses it’ll be because he’s his own worst enemy,” Arballo continued. “He’s using the seat as a platform, he’s using it as a vehicle to spread his propaganda. It’s not about helping people in the district anymore. I think people see right through it.”
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
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."
Legal reporter shocked by Rudy Giuliani’s latest ‘breathtaking claim’ in fight over vote counting
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani held a press event in Arizona on Monday in which he lobbed out more false claims that the 2020 election was "stolen" from President Donald Trump.
Among other things, Giuliani alleged that that Arizona's process for picking its voting machines was "corrupt," even though he acknowledged he had no personal knowledge about how the process worked.
One claim, however, shocked Reuters legal reporter Brad Heath, who said it went beyond anything that Giuliani had argued before.
