After votes were counted, Harris had 905 votes more than McCready.   "McCready had previously conceded the race to Harris, but withdrew that concession Thursday [December 6, 2018]."  According to the Washington Post, the N.C. State Board of Elections is investigating several allegations related to the illegal collection of mail in absentee ballots, manipulation of those ballots (someone else writing in votes improperly), or discarding them altogether:

The State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement has collected at least six sworn statements from voters in rural Bladen County, near the South Carolina border, who described people coming to their doors and urging them to hand over their absentee ballots, sometimes without filling them out. Others described receiving absentee ballots by mail that they had not requested.  

Among the allegations is that an individual who worked for the Harris campaign coordinated an effort to collect and fill in, or discard, the ballots of Democratic voters who might have otherwise voted for McCready. Several of the affidavits come from elderly African American voters. It is illegal to take someone else’s ballot, whether to turn it in or discard it.

Officials are also examining unusually high numbers of absentee ballots cast in some precincts in the 9th District — and unusually high numbers of ballots requested but never returned. Harris’s narrow victory over incumbent Rep. Robert Pittenger (R-N.C.) in the Republican primary is also under scrutiny, with new attention on the in­cred­ibly high proportion of absentee ballots — 96 percent — that Harris won in Bladen County.

During his campaign, President Trump "attacked his Democratic challenger as untrustworthy and dubbed her 'Crooked Hillary' for using a personal email account as secretary of state." Jared Kushner's lawyer also confirmed he had once used a private email server to conduct government business early in the Trump Administration's term, but no misconduct was found. The administration of President George H. W. Bush used a private email server owned by the Republican National Committee to conduct White House business for several years and had for a short time lost 22 million emails.

Kendall said that her office will examine [Secretary of the Interior Ryan] Zinke’s 'reported ongoing involvement in and use of taxpayer resources to advance land developments in Whitefish, Montana.'" "A group funded by David Lesar, the Halliburton chairman, is planning a large commercial development on a former industrial site near the center of the Zinkes’ hometown of Whitefish, a resort area that has grown increasingly popular with wealthy tourists. The development would include a hotel and retail shops. There also would be a microbrewery — a business first proposed in 2012 by Ryan Zinke and for which he lobbied town officials for half a decade." Zinke owns land in close proximity to the proposed development and has been involved in discussions: "a foundation established by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and headed by his wife is playing a key role." Haliburton's "operations are directly affected by many of the Interior Department’s policies, including regulations on how oil and gas drilling must be conducted, and which public lands and federal waters are open to exploration and development." On January 4, 2018 the Department of the Interior announced an expansion of approved offshore drilling areas “in nearly all U.S. waters, the single largest expansion of offshore oil and gas leasing ever proposed by the federal government.” [post_title] => Secretary Of The Interior Ryan Zinke Involved In Discussions Around Haliburton Backed Development Project; Zinke Owns Land In The Area, While Haliburton Stands To Benefit From Looser Regluations Pushed By Zinke [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => secretary-interior-ryan-zinke-involved-discussions-around-haliburton-backed-development-project-zinke-owns-land-area-haliburton-stands-benefit-looser-regluations-pushe [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-11-10 13:34:39 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-11-10 13:34:39 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://factualuprising.com/?p=2686 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [4] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 2672 [post_author] => 1 [post_date] => 2018-10-13 12:14:26 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-10-13 12:14:26 [post_content] => President Trump has on more than one occasion claimed that he built his empire with a small loan of $1 million.  However, according to information obtained by the New York Times, Donald Trump "received at least $413 million in today’s dollars from his father’s real estate empire, much of it through tax dodges in the 1990s." Some of the creative ways Donald's father Fred channeled money to Donald and his other siblings include: The New York Times reviewed a large number of documents and information to uncover the items listed above:

The findings are based on interviews with Fred Trump’s former employees and advisers and more than 100,000 pages of documents describing the inner workings and immense profitability of his empire. They include documents culled from public sources — mortgages and deeds, probate records, financial disclosure reports, regulatory records and civil court files.

The investigation also draws on tens of thousands of pages of confidential records — bank statements, financial audits, accounting ledgers, cash disbursement reports, invoices and canceled checks. Most notably, the documents include more than 200 tax returns from Fred Trump, his companies and various Trump partnerships and trusts. While the records do not include the president’s personal tax returns and reveal little about his recent business dealings at home and abroad, dozens of corporate, partnership and trust tax returns offer the first public accounting of the income he received for decades from various family enterprises.
