The Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society has lodged a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia that calls for the legislatures in five states to be permitted to certify electors before the congressional count occurs. Those five states are Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, according to a press release from the Amistad Project. "The lawsuit argues that current federal and local statutes interfere with state legislatures' constitutional right to certify Presidential electors, in a direct violation of separation of powers. It also cites an Amistad Project white paper which illustrates how the Electoral College vote deadline of December 14 is arbitrary and does not apply to the contested states," the press release says. "Currently, state law and the executive branch refusal have prevented state legislatures from meeting as a body to review, investigate and debate the method in which the election was conducted." The suit seeks to have portions of federal and local law that interfere with state legislatures' right to certify presidential electors deemed unconstitutional. The lawsuit aims to make certain that the vice president and U.S. Congress do not count the presidential elector votes from the states before a respective state legislature is able to hold a joint session for a vote to certify electors. "Governors in these contested states have declared themselves to be the law due to COVID and are now actively preventing the state legislatures from exercising their constitutional authority to review the election process," Director of the Amistad Project Phill Kline said in a statement. "Governors do not have a right to certify election results through fiat," he said. "The Constitution gives state legislatures alone the right to certify Presidential electors," Kline noted. --Lawsuit calls for allowing 5 states' legislatures to certify electors before congressional count | Just The News --https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/elections/lawsuit-calls-permitting-5-states-legislatures-certify-electors -RETRIEVED-Wed Dec 23 2020 14:58:21 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time)

Emails obtained by FBI detail how Hunter Biden landed Ukrainian gas gig in 2014 Memos show concerted strategy to leverage VP Joe Biden's trip to Kiev to score Burisma Holdings deal. In the weeks before he landed a deal with a Ukrainian gas company in 2014, Hunter Biden strategized with his business partner on how to leverage an upcoming official trip to Kiev by his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to clinch the lucrative arrangement, according to emails obtained a year ago by the FBI. The communications reviewed by Just the News show that the younger Biden referred to his father as "my guy" and took credit for "adding value" because the vice president made comments to Ukrainian leaders about natural gas production that might benefit his new client. The memos also show how Hunter Biden pressed to get Burisma Holdings to sign some sort of consulting deal with him and his business partner Devon Archer before the U.S. vice president visited Ukraine on April 21-22, 2014. "The contract should begin now — not after the upcoming visit of my guy," Hunter Biden wrote Archer in a detailed strategy email on April 13, 2014, a week before his father's high-profile visit. The memo shows Hunter Biden already knew he was going to be appointed to Burisma's board along with Archer in mid-April 2014 — a month before it was announced — and that he also wanted Burisma to pay an additional consulting fee to him or his law firm Boies Schiller Flexner, referred to in the emails as "BSF." The deal with Burisma "should include a retainer in the range of 25k p/m w/ additional fees where appropriate for more in depth work to go to BSF for our protection," Hunter Biden wrote. "Complete separate from our respective deals re board participation." --Emails obtained by FBI detail how Hunter Biden landed Ukrainian gas gig in 2014 | Just The News --https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/emails-obtained-fbi-detail-how-hunter-biden-landed -RETRIEVED-Wed Dec 23 2020 14:57:26 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time)

Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., said Tuesday he has been given information Georgia has a "credible process" for conducting a signature audit of absentee ballots from the Nov. 3 election. Graham posted to Twitter: "I have just been briefed about the signature verification system in Georgia regarding 2020 mail-in ballots. From what I've been told, sounds like they now have a credible process in place to do a signature audit. Look forward to hearing the results!" Graham gave no further details and The Epoch Times said efforts to reach out to his office and that of the Georgia secretary of state were not returned. Previously, election officials have said a signature audit of mail-in ballots is impossible once the ballot is separated from the outer envelope. However, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Thursday he had ordered a state-wide audit of signature-matching for the November election. Raffensperger's announcement came less than three weeks before the Jan. 5 Georgia Senate runoff election for both seats in the upper chamber. Incumbent Sens. David Perdue, R-Ga., and Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., are running against Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock. The election will determine which party will hold a Senate majority. The University of Georgia will partner with the secretary's office to analyze a random sampling of signatures from each county for mail-in ballots during the November election, a press release said. The audit is expected to be completed within two weeks. --Sen.
