A two-hour GBH News Special Presentation on the still-unfolding results of the presidential election Thursday night kicked off with a special edition of Greater Boston:
Trump Continues Attacks As Vote Counting Continues
As of Thursday afternoon, as President Donald Trump continued to attack the integrity of the democratic process and pro-Trump protesters in some cities called for an end to legitimate vote-counting — while other protesters and Democrat Joe Biden called for every vote to be counted. Jim Braude was joined by Margery Eagan and Adam Reilly of GBH News to discuss.
Where The Whirlwind Of Trump Election Lawsuits Stand
President Donald Trump and the Republicans have launched a number of lawsuits against battleground states where vote-counting continues, although judges in two states — Georgia and Michigan — had rejected their claims by Thursday afternoon. To discuss, Jim Braude was joined by Margery Eagan of GBH News and Jeannie Suk Gersen, a professor at Harvard Law School and a contributing writer at the New Yorker magazine.
Sen. Ed Markey On The Prospect Of A GOP-Controlled Senate
As vote-counting continued in key states Thursday, it appeared likely that former Vice President Joe Biden could win the presidency, while the United States could have a Democrat-controlled House and a Republican-controlled Senate. To discuss what that might mean for governance of the United States as the country struggles through the coronavirus pandemic, ongoing political and social upheaval, and continued economic strains, Jim Braude was joined by Margery Eagan of GBH News, and Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey.
