FEC Chairman: Trump Campaign Bringing 'Legitimate Accusations' of Vote Fraud to Courts

Everyone on the Democrat left, including their propagandists in the ‘mainstream media’ and, unfortunately, a growing number of Republicans, want President Donald Trump to just admit he was ‘beaten’ by Joe Biden and concede – so, as a private citizen, he can be ‘investigated’ and harassed for the rest of his life.
But the president, of course, has other plans.
Convinced that this election was stolen by the deep state, his campaign is filing lawsuits in several key battleground states where witnesses and whistleblowers by the dozens have come forward and given sworn testimony (under penalty of perjury) that election theft did indeed occur.
And to that point, the chairman of the Federal Election Commission believes the president is within his rights to do so, especially given the sheer volume of affidavits his campaign lawyers have received thus far.

The Trump campaign is bringing "legitimate accusations" to court through affidavits of credible witnesses and other evidence used in its challenges to electoral outcomes in various states, Federal Election Commission Chairman Trey Trainor said.
Trainor said his review of evidence, including numerous affidavits claiming voter fraud and a sworn statement by a prominent mathematician flagging up to 100,000 Pennsylvania ballots, met the first level of legal scrutiny under what's known as motion to dismiss or "Rule 12(b)(6)" of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which would dismiss less credible claims.
Noting the subsequent legal threshold beyond a "motion to dismiss" is the "summary judgment phase," Trainor said that under this phase, the credibility of witnesses is presumed to be accurate, especially given the caliber of the testimonies Trainor has observed to date.
"When considering a motion for summary judgment, a judge will view all evidence in the light most favorable to the movant's opponent," the Cornell University Law School's Legal Information Institute website notes.
"What I would be concerned with, if I were on the other side of these election contests that are going on around the country, is that if you look at the level of evidence that has been provided by these affidavits — hundreds of affidavits that corroborate events that have happened on the ground — in a summary judgment phase of these cases, you have to take the evidence of the plaintiff as being true," Trainor told "Just the News AM" television show Friday.
"The court has to take the evidence of the plaintiff as being true and see whether or not the other side can make a case against it," added Trainor. "So, the massive amounts of affidavits that we see in these cases show that there was in fact fraud that took place. And the other side really needs to answer these questions."
Following a stunner of a press conference on Thursday in which Trump campaign attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell laid out the case in an “opening statement,” Trainor remarked, “At the end of the day, what I would say is that these are legitimate accusations that are going to be tried in court."
"And we need to let this legal process play out," Trainor added, "so that we come to a valid conclusion to this election that everybody believes to be legitimate."
