As predicted, Donald Trump is already moving to the courts to challenge the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. However, there are still a few things that are not certain:
- Will Trump personally spend more on the legal challenges than he spent on his campaign?
Probably, but he will get others to chip in.
- Will Trump fund-raise to recoup the legal costs?
The Republican party and Republican donors will step up to fund these challenges if it looks like they can affect down ballot races. Normally they might not make some of these challenges lest they be labeled ‘sore losers’, but Trump will give them cover.
- How long until this thing is over?
Beyond the inauguration as it will affect down ballot races.
- Will Trump get sued, perhaps by some of the women he accused of being liars?
Good chance. My guess is that Gloria Allred cannot wait to slap a defamation suit on him.
