Donald Trump May Already Be Violating Campaign Laws

  Donald Trump May Already Be Violating Campaign Laws In his latest round of will-he-or-won’t-he, Donald Trump on Sunday got closer than ever to indicating he will run for president again, telling Fox Business he’s already made up his mind but can’t reveal his answer because of campaign finance issues. The thing is, experts told The Daily Beast, in his quest to avoid violating election laws, Trump may have done just that. Asked on Sunday about a possible 2024 bid, the former president told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, “I do know my answer, but I can’t reveal it yet because that has to do with campaign financing.

"I will tell you this," Lindell told the audience, "the real totals is Donald Trump 80 million and Biden less than 68 million—that's the real totals." The audience cheered at his claim.

Biden won the election with over 81 million votes. Trump lost with over 74 million votes. But since the election, Lindell has repeatedly pushed Trump's baseless claim that an unprecedented nationwide conspiracy of voter fraud "stole" the election from him.

In May, Lindell falsely claimed that Trump won with over 80 million votes. He also claimed that Trump would've won if election fraudsters in six key battleground states hadn't rigged the vote against him.

What’s Missing From Joe Biden’s Voting-Rights Defense

  What’s Missing From Joe Biden’s Voting-Rights Defense The president’s speech about the sanctity of the vote did not go far enough.Nowhere in his remarks did Biden utter what may go down as the political word of the year. The Senate procedure known as the filibuster now stands as the insuperable obstacle to the new federal voting-rights legislation that represents Democrats’ best chance to counter the restrictive voting laws proliferating in red states.

Lindell has said that "organic fraud" and "computer fraud" both caused Trump to lose the 2020 election.

The "organic fraud" allegedly involved ballots cast by dead people, non-residents and minors as well as "fake ballots." Lindell believes that critical battleground states delayed releasing their final vote counts on Election Night once they realized Trump had a lead.

However, states' final ballot counts and certifications were delayed past Election Night, in part, because officials had to tally a large number of mail-in ballots. A greater number of voters used mail-in ballots during the 2020 election to avoid voting in-person during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Lindell said that his "cyber symposium" this month will reveal new evidence of voting machine fraud orchestrated by China. He also said that he has technological experts examining "packet captures" of voting machine data to show exactly when and where election fraud occurred.

Arizona GOP Official Slams Cyber Ninjas' 'Simply Not Accurate' Election Numbers

  Arizona GOP Official Slams Cyber Ninjas' 'Simply Not Accurate' Election Numbers The company has been conducting an audit of Maricopa County's 2020 election results for more than two months.Arizona Senate Republicans have been pushing forward with a widely criticized and mocked audit of the presidential election results. County officials in Maricopa County—the most populous in Arizona—completed a formal audit of the results last November, and it did not uncover any discrepancies. But GOP lawmakers in the state have pushed forward with their own audit because of former President Donald Trump's baseless claims that the 2020 election was "stolen" for President Joe Biden.

This evidence, he added, will convince the Supreme Court to vote unanimously to reinstate Trump into office by the fall.

Lindell's claims that machines from Dominion Voting Systems flipped votes from Trump to Biden during the 2020 election compelled the company to file a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against him in February.

Lindell sued the company for $1.6 billion, claiming that the company is a "government actor" that violated his Constitutional rights to free speech and due process.

In early June, Lindell said that Trump would reassume his role as president by August. He has since readjusted the date of Trump's return to sometime this autumn.

Lindell has said Trump's return to the White House would occur either through Supreme Court rulings or "two other bonus pathways" involving vote audits in states that Trump lost in 2020. One such audit is currently underway in Maricopa County, Arizona.

However, constitutional law doesn't support Lindell's prediction, according to Business Insider. The publication called Lindell's claim a "demonstrably false conspiracy theory," and said that neither Constitutional law nor legal precedent support his claim.
