There Hardly Is Doubt Russia Interfered in the 2016 Elections

   In Bailey, et al. v. United States, et al., docket 16-1464, Petitioners seek two (2) remedies. The second, and broader, remedy is to have the results of the 2016 election declared void ab initio.  The effect would be to place matters as though the election had not taken place.
