Journalist Jon Ralston, who has won broad acclaim for his in-depth knowledge of politics in his home state of Nevada, has delivered a fiery denunciation of the latest voting-related lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump’s campaign.
In his daily email he sent out to readers, he explained the significance of the lawsuit and accused the Trump campaign of trying to undermine citizens’ faith in Nevada’s vote-counting process.
“What they are doing, with no cause, is to use the court system to cast doubt on the election and specifically to raise questions about mail ballots,” he wrote. “Not only is there no evidence of fraud or a conspiracy to commit fraud, but they also know it would be almost impossible to carry this out.”
Ralston argues that Trump and the GOP are trying to put a stop to counting mail-in ballots because those ballots are disproportionately benefiting Democrats.
“The Republicans have done this because they know they are getting killed in mail ballots, and they want to stop the count or suppress the total,” he claimed. “That’s it. Period. And they are willing to smear good public servants, from poll workers to election officials, in service to a pathological liar who has denigrated this state at every turn.”
Commenting on Twitter about the lawsuit, Ralston ads that it is “nothing short of evil.”
The Trump campaign filed another lawsuit last night and is in court in a few minutes on another one, trying to undermine faith in NV elections. They have no evidence, but they are raising smoke to pretend there is a fire. It is nothing short of evil. Yes, evil. I wrote about it. pic.twitter.com/KPqlbxSL98

Anthony Scaramucci: ‘Trump is really losing it psychologically’
Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci on Tuesday suggested that President Donald Trump is suffering mental problems after losing the 2020 election.
"Trump is really losing it, psychologically," Scaramucci wrote on Twitter. "His followers don’t get that being a 'loser' is just about as bad as actual death to him."
"He is now a 'loser' in his daddy’s eyes," he added. "All he can do is act out. I wonder how it will end."

The trio started off the Daily Beast podcast with a hilarious dramatic reading of the Washington Post's bombshell report about the president's inability to comprehend how he lost the election, with Conway laughing at the mention of Trump's "fragile mental state."
