FEC Chairman: Trump campaign bringing 'legitimate accusations' of
election fraud to court
The "massive amounts of affidavits that we see in these cases show that
there was in fact fraud that took place," said FEC Chairman Trey
Trainor. "And the other side really needs to answer these questions."
The Trump campaign is bringing "legitimate accusations" to court through
affidavits of credible witnesses and other evidence used in its
challenges to electoral outcomes in various states, Federal Election
Commission Chairman Trey Trainor said.
Trainor said his review of evidence, including numerous affidavits
claiming voter fraud and a sworn statement by a prominent mathematician
flagging up to 100,000 Pennsylvania ballots, met the first level of
legal scrutiny under what's known as motion to dismiss or "Rule
12(b)(6)" of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which would dismiss
less credible claims.
Noting the subsequent legal threshold beyond a "motion to dismiss" is
the "summary judgment phase," Trainor said that under this phase, the
credibility of witnesses is presumed to be accurate, especially given
the caliber of the testimonies Trainor has observed to date.
