Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Saturday announced that Fulton County ballots that were scanned on Friday were being reanalyzed after a reporting problem was discovered

John Bolton, who served as President Trump’s national security adviser from 2018 to 2019, said in a statement to CBS News on Saturday, “Republicans face a character test”

“Any candidate has the right to pursue appropriate electoral law remedies if they believe there has been misconduct or error,” added Bolton. “But no one, especially a sitting president, should denigrate our electoral system without concrete facts “

Earlier today, Bolton said in an op-ed in The Telegraph that “if the leader of the free world continues to claim, with virtually no supporting evidence, that the election was stolen by fraud we will have more serious problems than just reconciling the disappointed supporters with the reality of defeat “

Bolton, who was part of former President George W Bush’s legal team for the Florida recount in the 2000 election, called M Trump’s unsubstantiated allegations of widespread electoral fraud are “shameful” and have written that Republican leaders “can either dismiss Trump’s false claims and insist that he provide concrete evidence in court, or join his fancy and forever tarnish their own reputation and that of the party “

President Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee filed a lawsuit in Arizona on Saturday, claiming votes were falsely rejected in Maricopa County The lawsuit alleges polling officers gave voters improper instructions on what to do when voting machines detect over-voting – when too many choices are selected on a ballot

Amid concerns that voters will be given permanent markers to mark their ballots, Maricopa County District Attorney Allister Adel said in a letter earlier in the week that “no ballot vote had not been rejected in the polling centers, for over-votes or for any other reason “

“Voters who scored more votes than allowed (a ‘hover’), left stray marks on their ballots, or otherwise damaged their ballots so that they could not be read by voters. vote-tabulation machines had the option of ‘wasting’ their ballots and throwing out new ones, “Adel wrote

Joe Biden was being cast as the winner of the 2020 presidential election largely because he was able to convince enough voters that he could handle the coronavirus pandemic better and that he had the right temperament for the post, according to CBS News analysis of exit poll data

Data shows voters who backed Biden were looking for a candidate with good judgment and someone who could unite the country Bringing the country together could be difficult, as voters who backed President Trump did not say that they viewed the coronavirus as a serious problem – as do Biden voters – and about half of those voters say they fear a Biden presidency

Dr Zeke Emanuel, vice-provost of global initiatives and university professor, Perelman School of Medicine and The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania
