The end of American democracy as we know it - if Donald Trump Wins Election
The legal barrage by President Donald Trump’s campaign against election results in battleground states is highly unlikely to succeed. But it still has the potential to test American democracy as Trump tries to cling to power despite losing the election. Lawsuits filed in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona — all states that voted for Democratic candidate Joe Biden — ask judges to prevent those states from certifying their results. That has rai ...

Trump, for once, listened when aides told him to lay low
America finally got something it essentially hasn’t had since 2015 — a week without Donald Trump’s voice. No rally. No sparring with reporters. No unwieldy Fox News interviews. No unscripted moments with world leaders. Yes, there was his always-active Twitter feed. And there was even one speech late Friday about the progress of a coronavirus vaccine, announced on two-hours’ notice. But even then, the president mostly read from a script befo ...

Trump officials mocked Democrats in 2016 as 'sore losers' for not accepting election results
(CNN)Top Donald Trump campaign and White House officials continue to baselessly assert there was widespread election fraud in the 2020 election and refuse to acknowledge President-elect Joe Biden's victory, but four years ago, those close to Trump mocked Democrats who didn't accept his victory as "sore losers." In 2016, Trump's allies routinely attacked recount efforts that they said were "based on no evidence" and were designed to "delegitimi ...

Fight for Senate control awaits in Georgia after Biden's win
WASHINGTON (AP) — Control of the Senate likely won’t be decided until a January runoff in Georgia, even after Democrat Joe Biden won the White House on Saturday. That post-election cliff-hanger will determine the balance of power in Washington, as neither party appears to have a lock on a Senate majority right now. So far, the tally for the next Senate is 48 Republicans and 48 Democrats after Tuesday’s election. Two seats in Georgia are hea ...
