FEC Chairman: Trump campaign bringing ‘legitimate accusations’ of election fraud to court

The “mas­sive amounts of affi­davits that we see in these cas­es show that there was in fact fraud that took place,” said FEC Chair­man Trey Train­or. “And the oth­er side real­ly needs to answer these questions.”

The Trump cam­paign is bring­ing “legit­i­mate accu­sa­tions” to court through affi­davits of cred­i­ble wit­ness­es and oth­er evi­dence used in its chal­lenges to elec­toral out­comes in var­i­ous states, Fed­er­al Elec­tion Com­mis­sion Chair­man Trey Train­or said.

Train­or said his review of evi­dence, includ­ing numer­ous affi­davits claim­ing vot­er fraud and a sworn state­ment by a promi­nent math­e­mati­cian flag­ging up to 100,000 Penn­syl­va­nia bal­lots, met the first lev­el of legal scruti­ny under what’s known as motion to dis­miss or “Rule 12(b)(6)” of the Fed­er­al Rules of Civ­il Pro­ce­dure, which would dis­miss less cred­i­ble claims.

Not­ing the sub­se­quent legal thresh­old beyond a “motion to dis­miss” is the “sum­ma­ry judg­ment phase,” Train­or said that under this phase, the cred­i­bil­i­ty of wit­ness­es is pre­sumed to be accu­rate, espe­cial­ly giv­en the cal­iber of the tes­ti­monies Train­or has observed to date.
