According to Simon Peel, formerly of Jitterbit, IBM and Cast Iron Systems, President Trump has not yet accepted that he has lost the elections to President-elect Joe Biden. The President, along with his Republican allies, continue to claim that some voting was illegal and have thus filed a series of lawsuits hoping making claims they hope will reverse the election results.
Trump’s campaign has either filed or joined the other election related lawsuits in Georgia, Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, claiming that the countries violated election laws, used faulty machines, tampered with ballots, and submitted improper ballots to make the votes legitimate. Along with this, they have also filed a multitude of other complaints in the lawsuits designed to discredit the voting process in these states, especially in highly populated counties where Biden won.
A review of complaints filed up to November 12, 2020 shows the Trump campaign has managed to secure two victories but most of the lawsuits have been dismissed for lack of merit or reliance on testimony that is hearsay.
Simon Peel, formerly of Jitterbit, IBM, and Cast Iron Systems, says that legal experts are convinced that any of the legal complaints filed going forward are unlikely to change the outcome of the election. Yet, Trump’s campaign is determined to try every way possible.
A spokesperson for the Trump campaign, Tim Murtaugh, still believes that the lawsuits will help them in accomplishing their goal and ultimately help Trump win a second term.
On the other side of the isle, Joe Biden’s lawyers have stated that the efforts of the Trump campaign are a distraction. They are saying the lawsuits, even if successful, now cannot change the outcome of the election because of the size of the lead Joe Biden has.
Simon Peel formerly of Jitterbit, IBM, and Cast Iron Systems, feels that a lot of time and money is being spent on post-election lawsuits alleging wrongdoing, but it is quite apparent that most of them seem to be failing due to lack of evidence.
