Axios isn’t always 100% right, but they have had a much better track record over the last two years than NYT or WaPo.
They are now saying that it is confirmed behind the scenes that Donald Trump is indeed planning a series of massive campaign rallies in order to bring the evidence of fraud directly to the American people.
President Trump plans to brandish obituaries of people who supposedly voted but are dead — plus hold campaign-style rallies — in an effort to prolong his fight against apparent insurmountable election results, four Trump advisers told me during a conference call this afternoon.
What we’re hearing: Obits for those who cast ballots are part of the “specific pieces of evidence” aimed at bolstering the Trump team’s so-far unsupported claims of widespread voter fraud and corruption that they say led to Joe Biden’s victory.
Fueling the effort is the expected completion of vote counting this week, allowing Republicans to file for more recounts.
What’s next: Team Trump is ready to announce specific recount teams in key states, and it plans to hold a series of Trump rallies focused on the litigation.
In Georgia: Doug Collins, the outgoing congressman who lost to Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a special election to fill former Sen. Johnny Isakson’s seat, will be leading the campaign’s recount efforts. The team has also redeployed 92 staffers from Florida to Georgia, doubling its group on the ground.
In Arizona: Kory Langhofer, former counsel for Trump’s 2016 transition, will serve as lead attorney.
In Pennsylvania: Porter Wright’s Ron Hicks is heading up the legal effort.
Nationwide: They’re assembling additional surrogates and lawyers.
“We want to make sure we have an adequate supply of manpower on the ground for man-to-man combat,” one adviser said.
The group is also staffing a campaign-style media operation.
The team led by Trump communications director Tim Murtaugh is now a surrogate messaging center. It will pump out “regular press briefings, releases on legal action and obviously things like talking points and booking people strategically on television,” one adviser said.
They’ll also make a big play to raise money for their legal defense fund.
Trump’s formal legal team includes 2020 campaign manager Bill Stepien, lawyer Justin Clark, and senior advisers Jason Miller and David Bossie.
I’m sure this is true.
This is going to be legendary.
The people are rising up. This is the revolution we’ve been waiting for.
Remember: this fight is far from over.
In fact, it has only just now begun.
Trump needs a massive celebrity line-up at these events. I’d say get 50 Cent out there for one. But get anyone. Show that the masses of people of this country are standing behind him.
Listen: we need to rally the troops for these rallies. We’ve already rallied them to be in the streets, but we need to massively rally them for these rallies. We want to see hundreds of thousands of people in the same place.
If you have to drive across country, do it.
Just be there.
Rent a van and load it up with your people.
This is the most important thing of our lives.
If the court sees millions of people in the streets supporting Donald Trump, that WILL affect their decision. Remember, these are human beings, they do not live in a vacuum, and they will be inclined to vote in favor of the side with the most energy, in order to avoid the worst scenario of chaos and unrest.
