Today’s press conference was unlike anything I have ever seen before. Trump’s lawyers described a two-part legal strategy. Part 1 involves preventing state certification of election results based on the affidavits of eye witnesses who allege various frauds. The lawyers claim these allegations by themselves will be enough to prove that Trump won the election by a landslide. Part 2 involves a conspiracy of international scope. The basic allegation is that a nationwide Democratic Party political machine planned and implemented an elaborate scheme to steal the election using both old school techniques and electronic manipulation of the vote counting.
It is the Part 2 strategy that astounds. Is it really conceivable that such a conspiracy might have occurred?
I have to say, Yes, it is conceivable in our age of big data and media censorship, but the case remains to be made. The press conference put forth a litany of assertions, with some hints of evidence, but the assertions have yet to be substantiated in detail.
Legal proceedings will be the venue for testing the allegations. This is as it should be. My sense is that this process, now engaged, is likely to rock worlds.
