U.S. in talks to resolve criminal fraud charges against Huawei executive

The Justice Department is in talks with lawyers for a top Chinese tech executive under house arrest in Canada to resolve U.S. criminal fraud charges in a case that has strained Beijing’s relations with Ottawa and Washington.

The negotiations between Justice Department officials and lawyers for Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer for Huawei Technologies, the world’s largest communications equipment manufacturer, have been ongoing for months, according to people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the issue’s sensitivity.

Meng was arrested in December 2018 and charged with bank and wire fraud, and was accused of misleading banks about Huawei’s relationship with a firm in Iran called Skycom, which prosecutors allege is a Huawei subsidiary. Prosecutors alleged that Huawei and Meng deceived the banks into clearing millions of dollars in transactions with Skycom in violation of U.S. sanctions prohibiting business dealings with Iran.

Roger Stone urges Trump to consider declaring martial law based on voter fraud conspiracy theories

ROGER STONE: Right now I think we have to put all differences aside because what we have here is — you’re absolutely right — nothing short of a foreign governmental takeover of the United States. Let’s go to that show where I said specifically if there was overwhelming and compelling evidence of fraud and it was connected to the voting system itself, which it has been, then the president would have to consider the 1807 insurrection law or martial law. Headline: “Stone says if Trump loses he should impose martial law.” Not what I said. However, all the conditions that I did list in that article, Lin Wood seems to believe that we have exceeded, and I think the president has to have all options on the table as to how he proceeds. The one thing he cannot do, Alex, is quit. He has powerful forces arrayed against him.

The GOP’s Shameful Embrace of Trump’s Fake Election Fraud

President Trump is aware there is no evidence of massive voter fraud resulting from an international conspiracy — hatched not only by Democrats in every swing state but also Republican state officials and Republican judges and the FBI and the DOJ — to steal the November election from him. Republicans in Congress know this too. They know there was no global plot, no widespread fraud, no evidence presented in court and no way Trump “won by a lot.” Attorney General Bill Barr said this gently on Tuesday, but GOP leaders refuse to do the same — they’re down for the con.

Brad Raffensperger, a partisan Republican Trump donor and voter who happens to be the secretary of state in Georgia, has now been dubbed “the enemy of the people” by the president of the United States for following the law and not cheating on Trump’s behalf. His family faces death

  • Attorney General Bill Barr said Tuesday that the Justice Department and the FBI had not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.
  • “To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election,” Barr told The Associated Press.
  • Barr is the latest Republican official to break ranks with President Donald Trump over the president’s allegations that substantial voter fraud led to an illegitimate election outcome.
  • The attorney general’s statement is particularly significant given that he fanned Trump’s conspiracy theories by baselessly claiming that foreign countries could tamper with mail ballots and contribute to a fraudulent election.

“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr told the AP even as Trump continues to pursue legal challenges to an election he

In an interview with The Associated Press, Barr said U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been working to follow up specific complaints and information they’ve received, but they’ve uncovered no evidence that would change the outcome of the election.

Texas GOP lawmakers target voter fraud, despite no proof of widespread problem

Editor’s note: This coverage is made possible through Votebeat, a nonpartisan reporting project covering local election integrity and voting access. The article is available for reprint under the terms of Votebeat’s republishing policy.

Fresh off a presidential election replete with accusations of election malfeasance but devoid of evidence of widespread fraud in Texas, local Republican leaders say the state needs more laws to protect the integrity of the state’s elections.

To that end, GOP state lawmakers are heading into the next state legislative session with a fistful of anti-fraud bills aimed at an issue that experts — and even some conservatives — acknowledge isn’t much of a problem in the Lone Star State.

Nearly a dozen pieces of legislation, all of them filed by Republicans, take aim at mail-in balloting, illegal voting and misbehaving elections officials — inspired by events and talking points from the previous election cycle.

‘Precious little proof’ in Georgia election fraud suit

A judge handling an election-fraud lawsuit brought by allies of President Donald Trump said the case was backed by “precious little proof,” but went on to issue a restraining order aimed at blocking three Georgia counties from making any changes to their voting machines as he considers whether to permit a forensic examination of those systems, according to court records.
