As Michigan struggles, Trump eyes new extortion scheme

Trump alleges Nevada's mostly mail primary election is 'illegal,' says Nevada could lose funding should it proceed

In 2020, after changing his primary residence to Florida, Trump cast an absentee ballot in that state's presidential primary election.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said Secretary Benson did nothing improper.

On Monday, before Trump's Twitter threat, the Republican National Committee sought to clarify its position on vote by mail, arguing that the party opposes mailing ballots to every voter, as Nevada has done, but does not oppose mailing applications, as MI did.

Former federal prosecutor and CNN legal analyst Elie Honig provided a bit more detail, writing that, "Federal funds can be withheld only if (1) the funds relate to the specific state policy and (2) the funding source is new (can't interrupt an already-existing funding stream)". Overall, almost 290,000 people have recovered from the virus in the country.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition Is a Smartphone Made for Military: Specifications
Samsung has announced what appears to be a ruggedised version of the Galaxy S20 geared toward United States service members. For complete off-grid communications, the device offers a "stealth mode" that disables LTE and mutes all RF broadcasting.


Trump also blasted Nevada's plan for mail voting for its primary in June.

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson on Tuesday said all 7.7 million Michigan voters would receive absentee ballot applications before the August 4 state primaries and the November general election so no one "has to choose between their health and their right to vote". Democrats were most in favor of Trump being masked (90%) while 66% of independents said the same.

The president made the same threat against Nevada, again raising without evidence the specter of voter fraud.

We don't know yet what Donald Trump's reaction will be, though on Tuesday he said this to reporters asking him if he would wear a mask at the Ford facility: "I don't know". Benson says Michiganders should have the opportunity to easily participate in the democratic process while avoiding public health risks. Early voting will be held at the Starke County Courthouse in Knox.

Dark Mode is Hitting Google Mobile App
It should be noted that the feature has already been tested for several months, before being made available to everyone. But that has not been very effective considering that some apps don't support Dark mode including some Google apps.


Absentee ballots may be mailed back or dropped off in a securee drop box located in the front of the Sutherland Building. The League says that can be too restrictive for Minnesota voters trying to cast ballots from out of state. "Make sure you apply by May 26th at http://votespa.com so you can vote by mail for @realDonaldTrump!". They are not sample ballots. The state has among the strictest requirements in the country for voting absentee, which is generally only available for those over age 65, those who have a disability or illness, or those who will be out of the state during the election.

By calling it "illegal" and threatening to withhold funds, the tweet could also arguably violate Twitter's rules against sharing "misleading information meant to intimidate or dissuade voters from participating in an election".

He said as a former Justice Department attorney, he litigated a Noxubee County, Mississippi, case from 2007 called US v. Ike Brown in which he was able to prove that mail ballot fraud took place. Voters using in-person voting options should practice appropriate social distancing when doing so.

"Notaries would snatch ballots from mailboxes and end up voting the ballots for the voters".
