Trump campaign legal team distances itself from Sidney Powell

"Vice President Joe Biden won MI by over 150,000 votes-a huge margin compared to the 537 votes that decided Florida two decades ago".

The vote comes amid what some would call chaos over Michigan's election results. But the Michigan Board of State Canvassers will meet on Monday afternoon to certify the state's results.

Chatfield said that if the Board of State Canvassers does not confirm the results and the Michigan Supreme Court does not order it to do so there will be a 'constitutional crisis'.

It is unclear how Aaron Van Langevelde, the other Republican board member, will cast his vote.

Trump's campaign is proposing a schedule for legal briefing on the appeal through Tuesday and potential oral arguments on Wednesday, but said in its filing Sunday that the defendants in the case - Boockvar and seven Democratic counties - had not agreed to that timeline.

"At this time, no evidence of widespread misconduct or fraud has been reported, and judges initially appointed by both Republicans and Democrats have found allegations of widespread fraud to be wholly meritless", he added. If a majority don't certify, the results will likely be certified in court.

Biden is ahead by more than 155,000 votes in MI, by more than 81,000 in Pennsylvania and by more than 33,000 in Nevada. He is believed to have asked for their support in choosing electors for the electoral college, which officially chooses the president.

During the meeting, Biden raised his agenda for the first 100 days of his presidency, including taking aggressive action to contain COVID-19, providing resources to small businesses, families, schools, and state and local governments to power economic recovery, and investing in the middle class to build back better.

Biden, working in his home state of DE, has pushed ahead with his transition plans despite the lack of cooperation from the current administration.

The road to certification this election cycle has been an unusually complicated affair in the closely watched swing state.

The president has also been applying pressure to state lawmakers to either try and not certify the results or to install electors loyal to Trump.

Blinken's appointment makes another longtime Biden aide with a foreign policy background, Jake Sullivan, the top candidate to be United States national security adviser. Two Michigan Republican sources seeking to calm the tense situation bubbling in the state ahead of the meeting indicated to CNN on Monday they believe certification will happen Monday.

Powell's ouster came after she reacted to the dismissal of the Pennsylvania federal suit Saturday with an interview leveling even more improbable claims that Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, is involved in a conspiracy to deny Trump re-election.

Trump's campaign has also filed a petition for another recount in Georgia, which on Friday certified results showing Biden had narrowly won that state, a longtime Republican bastion in presidential elections.

Devin Nunes (R-CA) - the Ranking Republican on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence - has called on the Trump Administration to block all American arms sales to Turkey and suspend US military aid to Azerbaijan, reported the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA).
