As Joe Biden is elected President today, there is not a single pending case, in any court in the country, that could result in changing this outcome.

Several Trump election lawsuits have already been dismissed; the other pending cases would not put the margin the Electoral College in doubt, regardless of how they are resolved.

So it's a side note, but after months of Trump's many legal threats, he came up legally *empty handed* There's no big case There's no coordinated national strategy There aren't even prominent lawyers offering an *argument* for Trump today In the end, there were just tweets.

Anchoring special coverage 7pm-9pm ET tonight on the race and President-Elect Biden’s transition... and honestly we have some special things planned...

Donald Trump has quarantined more strictly in response to losing the election than in response to getting Covid.

Paul Manafort’s lenient 4-year sentence — far below the recommended 20 years despite extensive felonies and post-conviction obstruction — is a reminder of the blatant inequities in our justice system that we all know about, because they reoccur every week in courts across America
