The U.S. attorney in Washington initially refused to rule out investigating Mr. Trump’s role in the riot. The deadly storming of the Capitol by Mr. Trump’s supporters transformed the politics of Washington in ways that were still hard to measure. The December call to the investigator, like the call Mr. Trump made to Mr. Raffensperger, was recorded, the official said. Mr. Trump had pressured Mr. Pence publicly and privately to overturn the certifications and throw them back to the states so that Mr. Trump could try to undo results in states that Mr. Biden won.

The legal strategy failed in court after court — not a single incident of voter fraud has been proven in the lawsuits — but experts warn the narrative is laying the groundwork for disenfranchisement. Conversely, Democrats have vowed to restore the part of the Voting Rights Act that was gutted by a Supreme Court ruling in 2013 in Shelby County v. Holder, with an updated version named for Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., the civil rights icon and voting rights advocate. “You could say the same thing about Detroit.”Restrictive laws historically follow periods of advancementFor more than 100 years, voter fraud claims have cued up tighter rules. After the 15th Amendment and Reconstruction began to empower Black voters and politicians, Jim Crow laws systematically disenfranchised Black voters with poll taxes and literacy taxes. But it also birthed more modern forms of voter suppression, voting rights experts say.

REUTERS/Carlos Barria/File Photo(Reuters) - A federal judge on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump’s campaign that sought to throw out millions of mail-in votes in Pennsylvania, dealing a major blow to Trump’s flailing efforts to overturn his Nov. 3 election loss to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden. U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, described the case as “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations.”Brann added that he “has no authority to take away the right to vote of even a single person, let alone millions of citizens.”Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
