“The court found that cases of voter fraud are related to the statements and justifications in this case,” District Judge J. Nicholas Ranjan wrote on Thursday, telling Republicans they need to issue evidence of fraud to the Democratic Party and the Sierra Club, as part of the lawsuit.
Democrats have requested information and documents showing the steps Republicans take to study the potential for fraud, especially regarding the use of a drag-and-drop box, collecting votes, and submitting it. by mail in the primary elections.
Trump̵7;s election campaign and Republicans refused to do so. But with a court order on Thursday, they have to respond to questions from the Democratic groups and transfer contact records – or say they don’t. The judge said Trump’s election campaign had until Friday to respond.
Trump’s election campaign “is not allowed to make such spectacular fraud-related claims, especially in this national environment,” wrote the lawyers representing the Democratic Party.
The incident was one of the most daring attempts of the Trump campaign in court to limit mail voting in the 2020 election. Trump’s campaign has stated that vote by mail could invoke the asked about the accuracy of the “and ultimately chaotic” election results, according to court records.
Ranjan, the judge overseeing the case, is appointed by Trump.
An evidence hearing will be held in late September.
