Georgia Republicans panicked they are blowing their chances to hold onto both Senate seats: report
On Saturday, NPR reported that Georgia Republicans are worried that their own party's attack on the election process in the state — including by Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler — could undermine their chances of holding those Senate seats in the runoff, and by extension, the GOP's majority in the chamber going into the Joe Biden presidency.
"The state's Republican election officials have repeatedly asserted there's been no evidence of widespread fraud," reported Emma Hurt. "But incumbent Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler have called on Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to resign without evidence. President Trump has also criticized Raffensperger and called out Republican Governor Brian Kemp, who received Trump's endorsement in 2018."
Conspiracy-spewing ex-CEO claims he’s funding ‘various odd people’ who will prove the election was stolen from Trump
According to a report from the Daily Beast, the former CEO of Overstock.com is conducting a media blitz saying he is backing a group of hackers and what he called an "army of various odd people" who he states will be able to prove that President-elect Joe Biden stole the 2020 presidential election from Donald Trump.
The report notes that Patrick Byrne left his former company under a cloud after promoting wild conspiracy theories and saying the FBI encouraged him to date an accused Russian spy who was taken into custody.
Liberal judges could help Biden take control of the judiciary back from Mitch McConnell: report
Outgoing President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have used the last four years to build a right-wing pipeline into the federal court system, confirming hundreds of like-minded judges at every level — and while at least some of these judges have upheld the rule of law, the net impact has been to make the court system more conservative and more hostile to civil and voting rights.
But President-elect Joe Biden is already planning to push the courts back in a more progressive direction — and according to The Wall Street Journal, he will likely have an opportunity to do it for one key reason: liberal judges have been waiting to retire and give him vacancies.
