(RightWing.org) – President Donald Trump called it back in September when he predicted the courts would decide the 2020 presidential election. The Trump campaign filed four lawsuits so far regarding potential issues in Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Georgia as of 12:40 p.m. Eastern on November 5.
Trump campaign lawyers filed a lawsuit on November 4 in Georgia asking a judge to require Georgia election officials to separate late-arriving mail-in ballots from legally cast ballots to maintain the final count’s integrity. Additionally, the suit asked the judge to order polling officials to halt counting those late ballots.
The suit also contained a sworn statement alleging a registered election official observed at least 53 late ballots mixed in with ballots received at the polling station on time.

Associated Press reported that a Georgia judge dismissed the suit at 11:45 am Eastern, and a Michigan judge dismissed a suit there at 12:30 p.m. It appears unclear whether Trump campaign lawyers will file an appeal to either decision.
Georgia election officials won’t certify the vote count until November 20. So, it remains likely the Trump campaign would file other legal actions there and in other states between now and the official certification dates.
The election results and corresponding lawsuits are changing by the hour. We’ll keep you updated.
