Trump: “It’s not over” continues fight over election results
President Trump has signaled that his campaign will continue to challenge the results of the 2020 election, even while the Electoral College will cast votes today in most state capitols to confirm Joe Biden as the victor in the 2020 presidential election, the Washington Post reported.
“No, it’s not over,” President Trump said during an interview taped on Saturday at the Army-Navy game at the U.S. Military Academy. “We keep going, and we’re going to continue to go forward. We have numerous local cases. We’re, you know, in some of the states that got rigged and robbed from us. We won every one of them. We won Pennsylvania. We won Michigan. We won Georgia by a lot.”

Over a third of voters believe election stolen from Trump
A recent Fox poll found that over a third of voters, 36 percent, believe that the 2020 election was stolen from President Donald Trump.
This follows a previous poll from Quinnipiac that found only 60 percent of American voters and only 23 percent of Republicans believe that Joe Biden’s victory was legitimate, NBC reported.
CA Governor Newsom facing possible recall over coronavirus crisis
California’s Governor Gavin Newsom fueled outrage as photos emerged of him dining with friends, without a mask, during a $1200-per-plate dinner at a high profile restaurant while telling residents to avoid social gatherings and stay home, even over Thanksgiving.
Now, an effort to recall the government is gaining momentum, ABC reports. Recall organizers say they have collected nearly half of the 1.5 million petition signatures needed to place the recall on the ballot and have until mid-March to reach the required threshold. If the recall petition succeeds, Newsom would face rivals. Back in 2003, Californians recalled Gray Davis, who was replaced by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who defeated some 135 candidates on the ballot.
GOP Senator says Hunter Biden’s attorneys not cooperating with investigation
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, said on Sunday that attorneys for Hunter Biden are not cooperating with the investigation into his business dealings, the Daily Wire reported.
During an interview with Fox, Johnson said that his committee has “only got a response from Hunter and Devon’s attorney not to cooperate; nobody else has even responded to us.”
Devin Archer is a former business associate of Hunter Biden’s who served with him on the board of Burisma Holdings Ltd.
“Let’s face it: Vice President Biden has not been honest with the American public,” Johnson said. “He had to know about Hunter Biden’s business financial foreign entanglements and particularly China.”
