Biden Campaign Forms 'Special Litigation' Unit To Contest Election Results ^ | September 14, 2020 | Jack Davis

Posted on 09/14/2020 6:21:46 PM PDT by

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is gearing up for a massive legal war over the results of the November election.

The Biden campaign has tapped Dana Remus, its general counsel, and Bob Bauer, an Obama-era White House counsel, to lead a so-called special litigation unit of hundreds of lawyers, according to The New York Times.

The law firm Perkins Coie, which was a player in the production of a dossier of discredited claims about President Donald Trump, is a key part of the campaign machine assigned to attack rules about voting in order to serve the Biden campaign’s interests, the report said.

Eric Holder, who served as attorney general under former President Barack Obama, will connect local groups with the wider Biden campaign effort, The Times reported.

Some said Biden’s team was hardly trustworthy.

TWEET: The "law firm" Perkins Coie (crime organization) is going to try to steal the election from POTUS Trump and Americans for the Dems.

But... We're going to vote in such HUGE numbers that they're going to be shocked how dirty they have to go.

The "shy Trump voter" is very real. 10:17 AM · Sep 8, 2020 ------ TWEET: John D@jtd_gameon12 America hardly needs advice from Holder on voting procedures. It was him as AG in ‘09 who dropped charges of “Voter Intimidation” against New Black Panthers aiding Obama election‼️ Eric Holder: Coronavirus 'Opportunity' to Change America's Voting System

Former President Barack Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder said coronavirus is "an opportunity" to permanently change voting.

Remus insisted this was all about a fair election. “We can and will hold a free and fair election this fall and be able to trust the results,” Remus told The Times.

The president has said for months that Democratic efforts to have mass mail-in voting threaten to make this election awash in fraud to a degree without parallel in past elections, when the only mail-in ballots in most states were absentee votes.

“It’s going to be fraud all over the place. … This will be, in my opinion, the most corrupt election in the history of our country. And we cannot let this happen,” Trump said in a June 23 speech.

He beat that drum again on Saturday, saying on Twitter, “The Unsolicited Mail In Ballot Scam is a major threat to our Democracy, & the Democrats know it. Almost all recent elections using this system, even though much smaller & with far fewer Ballots to count, have ended up being a disaster. Large numbers of missing Ballots & Fraud!”

Bauer claimed the president’s warnings are part of the problem.

“A lot of what Trump and his allies would have us do is amplify their disaster scenarios,” the former Obama counsel said. “We’re not going to get caught up in alarmist rhetoric they are using to scare voters.”

Bauer also said Trump is attempting to tamper with voter turnout.

“The constant return to the issue of fraud is itself a voter suppression tool,” he said.

Mandi Merritt, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee, said Democrats seek to “turn our election into an out-of-control all-mail-based election” without the necessary protections in place against fraud.

“Republicans have always supported absentee voting with safeguards in place and want to make sure every valid vote is counted and our elections are free, fair and transparent,” Merritt told The Times. “What we oppose is a rushed and forcibly implemented nationwide vote-by-mail experiment that would eliminate those safeguards, invite fraud and weaken the integrity of our elections.”

Republicans are battling Democratic efforts to add wiggle room into signature-matching requirements for absentee voting and let third parties deliver absentee votes, a practice known as “ballot harvesting.”

“There is a clear difference between what Democrats are pushing this cycle and a typical absentee ballot request process,” Merritt said.

But will he come out of his basement hiding place if his lawyers get him “elected?” That is the $64,000 question.

Times have sure changed...
On Wednesday afternoon, November 9, 1960, Richard Nixon officially conceded the election to Kennedy. He told his friend, journalist Earl Mazo, that “our country cannot afford the agony of a constitutional crisis.
And here the Dems are gearing up to CREATE yet another one. This will be what? Number three or four in their attempts to Get Trump.

So, they are already showing that they won't accept the results of this election. The 2000 election was the real start of this lack of acceptance of election results by the Leftists, and it has only gotten worse over the past 20 years.

Democrats oppose democracy.

“Democratic Socialism” is when the only options on the ballot are socialism.

This explains where all of the campaign money is being funneled. The lawyers. It surely isn’t being used for campaigning.

I doubt the Biden campaign has enough cash to pay for lawyers.

“This all stinks of Obama.”

Exactly. There is a reason Obama never left DC after he left office. As Rush has said, since Donald Trump won and shocked DC, the dems with Obama’s team have set up a warroom in DC to ensure Trump doesn’t get reelected but, if he does, they will sow chaos nationwide as punishment to this country in the hopes the American people demand President Trump leave office to make the nationwide chaos stop. Banana Republic tactics.

The Rats tend to have stupid lawyers—as we saw during the impeachment hearings and trial. Trump and the RNC have much better, smarter lawyers—as we saw in the impeachment trial.

The fact that Dementia Joe and the Hoe are lawyering up on a large scale is proof that they’ve seen the internal polls— the Depends/Kneepads ticket is sinking like a ROCK.

The Rats are panicking, sh*tting themselves, and are desperate and hysterical. They see that Plugs is failing BADLY, and there is nothing the Rats can do at this point, they’re stuck with a LOSER ticket.

Why should they accept it if it shows they are losing or lost when they have mail in ballots they know will be “Found” and media will run interference for him.

huh? you are not following the hundreds of millions pouring into the Biden campaign.

then there’s all the millions going to BLM/Actblue etc, for the rioters??

then there’s this:

14 Sept: NYT: Progressive Donor Susan Sandler to Give $200 Million to Racial Justice Groups
Her efforts will support organizations trying to build political power in states that are undergoing rapid demographic change.
By Astead W. Herndon
Ms. Sandler’s announcement comes amid skyrocketing investment in racial justice organizations, fueled by the national reckoning on systemic inequities and injustice that swept the country this summer...

In July, the foundation started by George Soros pledged $220 million to groups focused on racial equity, an eye-popping total that gave long-term sustainability to several organizations. Ms. Sandler’s fund will provide several groups with a similar assurance...

Initial recipients of grants from Ms. Sandler’s fund include several progressive organizations working in battleground states to register new voters from underrepresented groups. The organizations include the Texas Organizing Project, New Virginia Majority, New Florida Majority and the Arizona Center for Empowerment.
Vivian Chang, a veteran of the California nonprofit world who will serve as the fund’s executive director, said in a phone interview that “the investments are not so much targeted to battleground states, but looking at the landscape of racism and demographic change.”...

The Sandler Foundation, which was started in 1991 by Ms. Sandler’s parents, the billionaires Herb and Marion Sandler, has long been a hub of left-leaning philanthropic efforts. The foundation has helped create organizations like the Center for American Progress and the Learning Policy Institute, and has supported nonprofit journalism outfits including ProPublica...
She was a key supporter of former President Barack Obama during his 2008 presidential run, and she backed Senators Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kamala Harris of California...


1 Nov 2016: Politico: Podesta paid $7,000 a month by top donor
WikiLeaks reveals that Clinton’s campaign chairman had an unusually close relationship with an influential Democratic donor.
By KENNETH P. VOGEL and DANNY VINIK; Bianca Padró Ocasio contributed to this report
Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, last year signed a $7,000-a-month contract with the foundation of a major Clinton donor who made a fortune selling a type of mortgage that some critics say contributed to the housing collapse, hacked emails show.
In February of last year, as Podesta was working to lay the groundwork for Clinton’s soon-to-launch campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, he signed the contract with the Sandler Foundation, which was started by Herb Sandler and his late wife Marion Sandler.

The contract — a copy of which was included in emails illegally obtained from Podesta’s Gmail account and disseminated Monday by WikiLeaks — is still active, according to Herb Sandler, who said that it calls for Podesta to provide advice on grant-making and other foundation functions.
It’s unusual for the full-time chairman of a general-election presidential campaign to maintain an active side deal with a major donor to that campaign — let alone to raise money from that donor for the campaign...

Sandler and his children this cycle also have donated nearly $4.4 million to Clinton’s presidential campaign, a supportive super PAC called Priorities USA Action and various Democratic Party committees, according to Federal Election Commission filings...
The Sandler Foundation also is barred from supporting campaigns, and there is no evidence that it has done so with the Clinton campaign...
The Sandlers met Podesta when they helped seed the Center for American Progress, the think tank he started in 2003...

28 Oct 2016: The Australian: Green campaign against Australian coal: trail leads to John Podesta
by Dennis Shanahan
A secretive cabal of foreign-funded green groups is working to delay and ultimately destroy the vast Adani coal proposal in central Queensland, as well as pursuing the wider aim of stopping Australia’s coal industry. So far, it is succeeding...

The groups and their billionaire donors are encouraged and helped at the highest level of the US Democratic Party through John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman and a former counsellor to Barack Obama...

In a celebratory email in August 2015 to the US Sandler Foundation, which funds Sunrise, after a decision against the Adani mine, Hepburn, a former Greenpeace activist and one of the authors of the strategy to block coalmining in Australia, thanks the foundation for its support and names the groups working together as “our colleagues at GetUp!, Greenpeace,, Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Mackay Conservation Group, Market Forces and the brilliant and tireless Sunrise team”.

The leaked emails also created a furore in India this week after revelations that last year Podesta tried to help Greenpeace in India...

A minority report of the US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works found US’s environmental movement had grown into a billion-dollar industry described by Forbes magazine as “a well-oiled machine that receives its funding from a handful of super-rich liberal donors operating behind the anonymity of foundations and charities”.
The report — The Chain of Environmental Command: How a Club of Billionaires and Their Foundations Control the Environmental Movement and Obama’s EPA — sets out how the club funds nearly all of the leading environmental non-government organisations as well as many media outlets and supposed grassroots activists in the US...
