Legal challenges in the 2020 presidential election still dominate the nation’s political conversations. Biden is continuing to move ahead with naming the individuals he expects to serve on his administration; thus far, neither the White House nor the General Services Administration has started working with Biden on an official transition.
Trump’s legal team continues to reiterate that voter fraud and irregularities tainted the 2020 presidential race; requests for audits, recounts, and the presence of ongoing litigation are all factors amid the campaign’s legal efforts.
Last week, Georgia officially certified its election results, hence stating that Biden won; however, the Republican Georgia governor did note that President Trump and his campaign have several legal paths and options ahead that they can take.
Meanwhile, Breitbart News confirms that Michigan is set to certify its election results today.
Certifying the Michigan Election Results
Tracy Wimmer, the spokeswoman for the Michigan Secretary of State, dropped the bombshell regarding the election certification yesterday. While conversing with CNN, Wimmer declared that there’s “no reason to doubt” Michigan’s canvassers will verify the state’s election results.
The Michigan Secretary of State also proceeded to dismiss any and all claims of voter irregularities and fraud. Wimmer professed that all Michigan’s counties have certified the election results in their communities; meanwhile, she also maintains that “Republican and Democrat clerks” are citing zero cases of “widespread” inconsistencies or fraud.

Wimmer remarks come in spite of Michigan Republicans reaching out to the board of Michigan canvassers and encouraging them to probe reported fraud.
Multiple counties in Pennsylvania are also expected to certify their election results today; however, these certifications are something that President Trump’s legal team is asking the courts to put a hold on, amid claims of voter fraud.
The Ticking Clock
With Georgia’s certification already done and certifications coming up in multiple other states, the clock keeps ticking.
Many Americans, even those on the right, have begun questioning the timeframe for legal proceedings carried out by the Trump campaign. Amid conversations about the election going before the Supreme Court, some conservatives are questioning when they can expect to see this.
President @realDonaldTrump has every right to pursue the legal avenues available to him.
It doesn’t matter if the media doesn’t like it.

The General Services Administration has indicated that they won’t provide Biden with access or funds necessary for a White House transition until after he’s officially declared as president-elect. With multiple states certifying and preparing to certify their results, an official declaration appears to be inching closer and closer.
What do you make of states certifying their results? How much more time do you think the president’s legal team will need to make their cases in court? Let us know in the comments section below!
