Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced Wednesday that the state will conduct a recount of all ballots cast in the November 3 presidential election, as requested by President Donald Trump’s team. The president scored another victory yesterday when the three Alaska supporters joined him, according to the projections of the major US media, something that was already expected and that does not change the electoral balance. The Democrat Joe Biden has 279 supporters, compared to 217 for Trump, who has not yet acknowledged his defeat. The situation is generating tension in the Republican Party. The New York Times concludes, after talking to election officials in a dozen states, that there is no evidence of voter fraud. Biden said this week that Trump’s legal battle and the allegations of voter fraud are being “embarrassed. “I want to tell world leaders that the U.S. is back in the game,” the Democrat said at a news conference Tuesday. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, however, assured that “there will be a smooth transition to a second Trump Administration. On Monday, the U.S. Attorney General, William Barr, authorized the investigation of Trump’s allegations of voter fraud. Barr told federal prosecutors to investigate “substantial” allegations of voting irregularities, but not to pursue “fanciful or implausible claims. Following this authorization, U.S. Department of Justice Director of Election Crimes Richard Pilger resigned.
