Former President Donald Trump is still trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election, and has been hyping up the supposed "audit" that his staunch political allies are conducting of Arizona's vote totals.

"One by one, [Trump allies have] succumbed to legal pressure by issuing corrections, clarifications or apologies," Blake explains. "The latest legal target to tuck its tail is the conservative cable news channel Newsmax, which released a statement Friday night apologizing to Eric Coomer, a top official at Dominion Voting Systems, who filed a suit against Newsmax in December... And meanwhile, just a few days before, a lawsuit from voters claiming a vast conspiracy involving Dominion and various state officials in swing states was dismissed after the plaintiffs withdrew their claims."
