Despite legal experts confirming the impossibility of changing the results of the US presidential election in favor of Republican President Donald Trump, the latter still insists that the elections are stolen and refuses to acknowledge the victory of his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden.

The Al-Jazeera correspondent in Washington - found my endowment - that the United States is currently living in chaos like it has not seen in decades.

With Biden beginning to form his transitional team to take power, the Republican administration responded with 3 steps that confirm that the United States has entered into a constitutional crisis.

Trump speaks

The outgoing US president returned to talking about stealing the elections, and challenging the victory of Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

In a tweet today, Tuesday, Trump said, "The election results will start to appear next week and we will win."

Trump alleges that there was massive electoral fraud in the presidential election and launched a series of lawsuits to challenge the result, but he has not yet presented any solid evidence to support these allegations.

Although Biden received congratulations from balanced Republican figures, including former President George W. Bush, many Republicans are on the side of President Trump, who refuses to concede defeat.

Earlier, the leader of the Republican majority in the Senate - Mitch McConnell - said President Trump has the right to consider "irregularities."

He added that Trump "has a 100% right to look into allegations of violations and evaluate his legal options," and before addressing the Senate.

Refrain from devolving power

The Washington Post reported that the White House has instructed federal agencies to avoid cooperating with President-elect Joe Biden's transition team.

Federal agency officials had prepared offices and flyers for the transition process in preparation for the Biden team, before the White House ordered that the team not be recognized until the General Services Administration certified the election results.

The Al-Jazeera correspondent reported that the law obliges the current administration to provide 6 million dollars to the winning candidate's team, to be used in renting offices and purchasing equipment and other means necessary for the transitional work.

She added that the Trump administration refuses to give this amount to the Biden team, and prevents government agencies from providing it with the financial, economic and intelligence data that the law provides for submission to the winning candidate.

Decision and resignation

In the midst of the crisis, the Superintendent of Election Investigation at the US Department of Justice has resigned, hours after the Attorney General allowed an investigation into allegations of irregularities in the presidential elections that Democratic candidate Joe Biden declared his victory in, while the Republican candidate President Donald Trump doubts the results.

The New York Times reported that the Justice Department official - Richard Pilger - resigned after US Attorney General William Barr authorized federal prosecutors to investigate allegations of election irregularities.

The New York Times, the Washington Post and other media said that Barr reminded prosecutors that they should investigate allegations of voting irregularities before states move to ratify the results in the coming weeks, while urging them not to be indifferent to the "fanciful or improbable" allegations.

Investigations into possible electoral fraud are usually the prerogatives of the states, as each state sets its own election rules and supervises them, and the Ministry of Justice does not intervene in such cases until the results are confirmed and the recounts are completed.

Usually, prosecutors are not allowed to act until after the final results are available, and this may take days or weeks after the November 3 elections, depending on local laws, and states must inform Washington of the approved final results no later than December 8.

The Trump campaign has sued the secretary of Pennsylvania - Cathy Popkfar - and the election boards of 7 different counties in the state, accusing the mail voting system of "lacking all the signs of transparency and verification found in the voters' vote themselves."

The lawsuit seeks to obtain an emergency injunction to prevent state officials from certifying Joe Biden's victory.

The other direction:

On the


hand, CNN reported that an adviser to Trump began to realize that he had lost the elections, and that he was actually discussing with his aides the possibility of running for the presidency in 2024.

Axios had reported, citing two family sources, that Trump discussed the candidacy with his advisers, saying that Trump's raising of the issue is the clearest indication of his admission of defeat against Biden, despite his continued public refusal.

Although the major American media announced Biden’s victory in the presidential elections, they have not yet announced the final winner in 3 states, namely Georgia, North Carolina and Alaska, while a dispute arose over Arizona, as some media outlets saw that it was decided in Biden’s favor, unlike other media outlets waiting to be sorted out. The rest of the votes.

Biden has so far obtained 290 electoral votes - when taking Arizona into account - compared to Trump getting only 214 votes, and even if the latter wins all the remaining states, he will not be able to reach the 270 vote threshold required to win the presidency.
