Feds investigating discarded mail-in ballots cast for Trump in Pennsylvania:
The Justice Department and FBI are investigating potential mail-in ballot irregularities in Pennsylvania, a crucial swing state for the 2020 presidential election.
On Thursday, the Justice Department said it discovered ballots cast for President Trump in Luzerne County were discarded.
Mr. Trump won the northern Pennsylvania county in 2016, despite it being a Democratic stronghold that voted for Democratic presidential candidates for several decades. --->READ MORE HERE
Wisconsin Authorities Investigate Absentee Ballots Found In Ditch, As FBI Probes Discarded Pro-Trump Ballots In PA:
Police in the swing-state of Wisconsin are investigating how three trays of mail which included absentee ballots ended up in a ditch, after the mail was found at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning near a highway before it was immediately turned over to the US Postal Service, according to Fox 11.
"The United States Postal Inspection Service immediately began investigating and we reserve further comment on this matter until that is complete," said USPS spokesman Bob Sheehan in a statement.
The incident comes a mere five weeks before the presidential election, which has been steeped in partisan bickering over the system of mail-in and absentee ballots and wavering trust in the alternate system.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, which marked a grim milestone this week of over 200,000 deaths in the U.S., voters are expected to cast ballots by mail in record numbers.

“We expect more than 3 million Wisconsin residents to vote in the November election, which means even more first-time absentee by mail voters,” Meagan Wolfe, the elections commission’s administrator, said in a statement earlier this month. -Fox News --->READ MORE HERE
