Attorneys for President Donald Trump's reelection campaign told a Nevada judge in the first election fraud hearing on Thursday that more than 85,000 votes were illegally cast 'by dead people and non-residents'.
One of the lawyers, Jesse Binnall, had previously said he intends to prove that fraudulent votes were cast and that Trump won the state, not President-elect Joe Biden.
During a hearing before state Judge James Russell in Carson City, Binnall claimed that more than 85,000 votes in Nevada were cast illegally.

'In the dead of night, votes were appearing and votes were disappearing on these machines,' said Binnall, according to The Washington Times.
'Without explanation — and there is no good explanation,' he said.
Binnall continued: 'We cannot turn a blind eye with striking evidence like this. We cannot allow an election to be stolen. We cannot pretend this vote irregularities, this vote fraud did not happen.'
According to Binnall, more than 8,000 absentee ballots cast in Nevada had fake addresses and nearly 20,000 votes were cast by non-residents.
He also claimed that at least 1,500 dead people voted and there were 42,000 double votes.
Binnall said at least 1 per cent of the voters who voted by mail-in ballots did not actually submit them.
