Nevada under scrutiny for election irregularities.
President Trump’s campaign is seeking public records in Clark County, Nevada, as part of the president’s greater legal challenges regarding election integrity in battleground states.
In a Friday letter to the Clark County Election Department, a firm representing Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. requested a trove of election data as part of his campaign’s overall legal challenges related to election integrity.
The letter contains requests for records, documents, and communications on the number of mail-in ballots received by the department after 7 p.m. PST on Election Day, as well as how many votes were cast after that time “by those voting in person at the polls.”
Per the letter, the campaign is also requesting:
The department had five days to respond from the time of the letter, per the Nevada Open Records Act. The firm stressed that the information requested is in the public interest and will “contribute significantly to the public’s understanding of the local processes and procedures in Clark County and further ensure the right of the citizens of Nevada to a free and fair election.”
The firm also requested that, in the event of the department denying the request, it provides a justification for refusing to release the requested information.
While the mainstream media has called Nevada and the election for Joe Biden (D), President Trump’s campaign insists that the race is not over and litigation is just beginning.
A Sunday update from the New York Times showed Biden leading Trump in the Silver State by just over 31,000 votes. The same data showed Biden leading Trump in Clark County, specifically, by just over 86,000 votes.
On Saturday, a whistleblower in Nevada who processed mail-in ballots swore an affidavit proclaiming that he witnessed “illegitimate processing of ballots as an election worker.” Specifically, he claimed he witnessed individuals counting mail-in ballots without verifying signatures.
“He says he was also told to ignore discrepancies with addresses. That worker has sworn out an affidavit which has been sent to the Department of Justice here in Washington,” Fox News’s John Roberts reported.
“A Trump campaign attorney says of that, quote, ‘The affidavit makes clear that we’re not dealing with oversights or sloppiness. This was intentional criminal conduct,'” he said:

Clark County Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria said they have received reports of voter fraud, but will not investigate them until the election is completed.
“We do have some reports that have come in that we’re logging for reporting. But we’re definitely going to do an investigation, and we’ll deal with them once the canvass is finished,” Gloria said Saturday.
“The votes are in the system at this point, so we’ll have to after the election, post-election, go after anything that’s been reported at this time,” he added:
On Saturday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) announced that investigators are being dispatched in Fulton County following the discovery of an issue related to reporting. The investigators are to “thoroughly secure the vote and protect all legal votes.”
Brendan Keefe of Atlanta’s WXIA said the issue “*may* significantly affect the current Biden lead in Georgia.”
