This has just broke 3 or 4 hours ago.

A 1 hour phone call Between Trump And the Secretary of state for Georgia in which Trump tries to coerce and then threaten the secretary
to find, produce, fabricate another 11,780 trump votes.

https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/kprd7i/megathread_president_trump_pressures_georgia/


~The full 1 hour tape, along with analysis and 30+ links to a spectrum of msm news as it's breaking across America can be found in the reddit link above.

I've gone in with another 5 bags on "USA - Trump Specials - Trump Exit Date 2" market at 1.04


I had hoped that the price would spike up due to fresh legal action after the Georgia Elections on the 6th but this is looking more and more
unlikely as this recording proves it is he who is trying to steal the Election.



It's Trump trying to steal the election not Biden, who would have thunk it???

Trump is lying to the end. Saying he had the election stolen by “evil” and that he won a “landslide”. He really would not understand the truth if it got up and bit him. He seems to live in a parallel universe where any fact he dislikes is “fake news” and his crazy world view is backed up by repeated bare faced lies.
Any ordinary reasonable person, including increasing numbers of Republicans politicians can see through this odious criminal nutcase.

Trump instructed his brainwashed knuckle draggers to take back America and to travel to Washington. He encouraged them to attack democracy having filled them with lies and hatred.

4 died.  The woman shot inside the capital building was, along with hundreds (thousands? you never know which way to exaggerate crowd size when it comes to Trump) of others in a mob roaming the halls of the capitol shouting 'where the f'k are they?'.

Sort of goes without saying the mob has no place attempting to subvert the democratic process of reading out the already known election result, but there you go, Trump's nonsense gets people killed. 

Anyway - positives are - he's isolated himself even more; some Republicans making quick political calculations appear to recognise which way the wind is blowing.  Mcconnelll was already making a mind blowing speech about democracy, rule of law, stop the nonsense.  Presumably he's trying for some sort of credibility angle with at least 2 years of minority status in the Senate to come.

Twitter and FB generally bend over backwards and allow pretty much any bollox on their sites which is why these poor people (including some who have got themselves killed) actually believe Trump's alternative set of 'facts'.

It's not difficult - he lost the election by a lot. Even McConnell stood there last night, before it kicked off, and said 'historically speaking, it wasn't a close election'.

Not sure what the solution is but censorship will only lead to more violence.

Flip back to 2016 and social media and the normal media were uncensored on their claims of Russian interference.

This time they are censoring claims of voter fraud and the media are saying claims of fraud are fake.

The first thing Biden should do is call a full independent hearing to devise a plan to strengthen the election system to make it more trustworthy. They need to investigate everything from foreign interference to domestic voter fraud to iron out the areas of weakness.

Democracy only works if the people trust the system.

Countries like UK count election results quickly and efficiently and we know the results almost instantly using low technology solutions that we trust. The American states can learn from this.

The start point for this insane logical leap is that 'there is no trust in elections'.  Of course trust has been eroded; the Trump led clowns have spent months lying about the elections.

Stop lying about the results.  Biden won.  The GOP went to court 80 times and produced no evidence.

The Russians did interfere in the 2016 election and this has also been proved.  Several of Trump's election campaign went to prison for their roles in the conspiracy and the Muller report detailed all of this and ran those prosecutions, which (with evidence) were successful.

Democracy works when major parties do not set out to destroy trust in elections.  Arsonists wanting inquiries into why there's a fire?  yeah, nice one.

Woman accusing Trump of raping her at 13 cancels her plan to go public


.
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/nov/02/donald-trump-rape-lawsuit-13-year-old-cancels-public-event

A woman who is suing Donald Trump for allegedly raping her as a child abandoned a plan to speak publicly on Wednesday, citing death threats.

The woman, known by the pseudonym Jane Doe, hid from media who were invited to her lawyer’s Los Angeles office for a press conference in which she was expected to reveal her identity.

Instead, her attorney, Lisa Bloom, cancelled the event in a brief, apologetic statement to a phalanx of cameras.

“Jane Doe has received numerous threats today as have all the Trump accusers that I have represented. She has decided she is too afraid to show her face. She has been here all day, ready to do it, but unfortunately she is in terrible fear. We’re going to have to reschedule. I apologize to all of you who came. I have nothing further.”


Hours earlier Bloom, a prominent attorney, stoked such anticipation with the announced press conference that her firm’s website crashed. With just six days to the election and polls showing a tightening race the stakes could scarcely be higher.

The anticlimax was the latest twist to the explosive and so far unsubstantiated claim that the Republican presidential nominee raped Doe in 1994 when she was 13 years old.

Doe has alleged the casino owner assaulted her on four occasions at parties in New York hosted by the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, a friend of Trump whom she also accused of rape. A civil lawsuit is slated for an initial status conference in a New York district court on 16 December.

Trump has vehemently denied the accusations, calling them fabrications designed to smear him in the run-up to the 8 November election.

Doe filed a lawsuit in April which was dismissed for technical filing errors. She filed fresh lawsuits in June in New York and California.

The allegations have received less media attention than other claims of sexual assaults by Trump partly because they appeared to have been orchestrated by an eccentric anti-Trump campaigner with a record of making outlandish claims about celebrities.

A Guardian investigation this summer found that Norm Lubow, a former producer on the Jerry Springer TV show, has been associated in the past with a range of disputed claims involving the likes of OJ Simpson and Kurt Cobain.

The federal lawsuit alleged Trump sexually assaulted Doe in 1994 at Epstein’s Manhattan home and at other parties Epstein hosted on the Upper East Side. Epstein, an associate of the UK’s Prince Andrew, and who was convicted of underage sex crimes in Florida in 2008, has denied the allegations.

Thomas Meagher, a patent and intellectual property attorney, filed the lawsuit for Doe even though he said he had never been involved in a case of this kind before.

With Bloom coming on board Doe appeared – until the press conference fiasco – to have acquired considerable additional legal and media firepower.

The founder and owner of The Bloom Firm, which handles family, civil and criminal cases in California and New York, has in the past sued the Boy Scouts of America and the Los Angeles police department. Bloom hosts a Court TV talkshow and is a legal analyst for NBC News.

Lawyer Lisa Bloom, representing the woman accusing Donald Trump, speaks to media on 2 November.

She is the daughter of Gloria Allred, another prominent attorney who is representing three different women who accuse Trump of inappropriate sexual contact, plus others who accuse Bill Cosby of wrongdoing.

In a Huffington Post article in June, apparently before she took on Doe’s case, Bloom said her allegations appeared credible given Trump’s “longstanding and well documented contempt for women” and abuse allegations made by his former wife Ivanka and Jill Harth, who detailed her accusations to the Guardian in July.

Judge Ronnie Abrams has ordered counsel for Trump and Epstein to appear in his New York district court along with Doe’s legal team for an initial status conference on 16 December. That raises the extraordinary prospect, were Trump to win the election, of counsel for a US president-elect being called into federal court in proceedings relating to allegations of rape of an underage girl.

The court order gives no details of the legal complaint raised by “Jane Doe”. It instructs all parties in the case to set out in advance the nature of the allegations and the “principal defenses”, as well as any previous motions and discovery as well as the “estimated length of trial”.
