Ben Ginsberg trashes Trump's voter fraud claim

A major frustration for those seeking to expose and stop President Trump’s potential theft of the 2020 election via his attempt to delegitimize perfectly legal mail ballots is the general unwillingness of Republicans to call b.s. on their president’s baseless allegations of voter fraud.
