Joe Biden has hired hundreds of lawyers, including two former solicitor generals, to fight an extended battle after the November election.

The aims of the massive legal unit are to “combat voter suppression,” “guard against foreign interference,” and ensure “voters cast their ballots correctly.”
“There are some unique challenges this year,” Bauer told the newspaper, adding that “We’re not going to get caught up in alarmist rhetoric they [the Trump campaign] are using to scare voters.”
“The constant return to the issue of fraud is itself a voter suppression tool,” he warned.

The narrative has been pushed hard by the likes of the Clintons, who have repeatedly urged Biden not to concede defeat under any circumstances.
In reality, new polls indicate that Trump has a huge lead.
