America’s Transition from President Trump to President Biden

Abstract

The 2020 U.S. Presidential election may have been the most contentious election in American history.  While President-elect Joseph Biden was the decided winner, with almost 8 million more popular votes and a decisive victory in the electoral college, President Trump began claiming election fraud would occur almost a year before the election.  In fact, Trump and his supporters have continued to suggest that the results of the election are somehow illegitimate and have contested them in various ways including over 60 lawsuits, all of which were dismissed.  Despite the allegations of election fraud, there has been no credible evidence of any type of widespread election fraud that would change the outcome of the election.  However, a group of Trump-supporting Republican members of Congress, in both the House and the Senate, announced their intention to refuse to certify electoral votes from the…… [Read More]

Robert Mueller Investigation

Words: 2186 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 688338

Introduction

Robert Mueller was appointed by George W. Bush to serve a ten year term as the 6th Director of the FBI from 2001 to 2013 (Obama granted him a two year extension).  Today, appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Mueller is heading the Special Counsel investigation into the long-standing claim that Russia “hacked” the 2016 presidential elections, though the investigation has been said to be more wide ranging than that (Mondics, 2017).  This paper will provide information on who Mueller is, what the investigation is all about, why it was initiated, and what the latest news on it has revealed.

Mueller Investigation

Words: 1339 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Research Paper Paper #: 57346433

The Mueller Investigation or the Special Counsel Investigation was established as a counterintelligence investigation to examine the involvement or interference of the Russian government in the 2016 US Presidential Election. Donald Trump’s presidential campaigns were characterized by allegations of collusion with the Russian government to interfere with the elections. Controversy regarding the probable interference of the Russian government in the US presidential elections in 2016 is one of the major issues that has faced President Trump’s administration. The Special Counsel led by Robert Mueller carried out its investigations into the matter for two years. Given the significance of the issue in the American political landscape, the Mueller Investigation has attracted lots of media coverage and attention over the past two years. This paper examines media coverage on the Mueller Investigation, particularly coverage by Sean Hannity (Fox) and Rachel Maddow (MSNBC).
