I appreciate the familiarity of your usual CAPSLOCK heavy Oxford writing style, taking some of the effort out of reading for us, letting us know when it's Passion Time.
When important or suspicious I sometimes do track down all the sources, check their sources, get back to the primary source. No surprise you are repelled from someone with the title 'fact checker' because it sounds like its for librarians. You apparently "saw" things in real time later called false? Examples would be helpful. And yeah, I'm sure your judicial analysis of "things put into place outside of the written law" is counselor grade.
Had I not enflamed some people to the core by mentioning certain people's titles as "fact checkers" how about the concept of putting 2 articles side by side and simply ignoring the whole content of one entirely.
Personally I did not anything peculiar about this last election. Not things that simply don't make sense. OUt of norms, we had an election that included more mail-in balloting than usual, specifically because of the Covid Health Crisis. Some clever politicians decided to attack the credibility of mail-in ballots back when they were only being considered. In April Trump began insisting that "people will cheat with mail-in balloting" despite that being his preferred method of voting. With purpose he began the campaign for his election fraud fight that many months in advance.
Then what happened is Trump lost the election. His election fraud campaign was ready for this mobilization of legal teams, state representatives, etc. I believe that there are many Americans who believe Trump way to often without questioning him. If people continued to listen to Trump then they would believe him that a massive outrage had ocurred, thus be pissed off.

In continuation, accidentally clicked, these people were listening to their President of the United States with his many claims. There were a very high quantity of claims it seemed in the beginning. When recounts were not looking promising, one of the voting machine software systems was thrown under the bus. Somehow collectively these people all believed that Trump foresaw election stealing 7 months in advance but was not effective in preventing it. I thought Trump is the get-shit-done-no-nonsense Top Dog. Yet with all his foresight, power, and bravado he could not stop it?
You then ask if I believe there were real issues. The main reason I don't believe there were real issues is because the Administration, many Republican allies in Federal and State governments, and a team of lawyers could not effectively win any battles in court. Quantity of accusations does not make something real.
The real outrage that took place this election was a selfish, libelous attack on one of the core pillars of the American Democracy. The fraud movement did go so far as to piss off millions of Americans and leave many questioning if any voting results are real or rigged.
There was also a number of media outlets poised to take up the Trump fraud cause. Newsmax is a great example. Did they stand to directly gain by pushing Trump's fraud claims to the max? Yes, they got the Trump bump, he broke-up with Fox and encouraged his followers to watch Newsmax. That company is skyrocketing now, major money. So do i believe it possible there were real issues. I don't see that reflected in the evidence. For all i know all elections have a small amount of cheating on both sides. The other suspension of disbelief and sense of moral superiority felt by the Trump camp is that of course one side cheated and it was the Democrats because they are the criminals.
You will soon see Trump out of the WhiteHouse and working on his media empire, with his fanbase now more impassioned than ever to follow him. So if there was so much massive fraud, with lawsuits all over the country, then you must believe that every judge in all of those cases so geographically spread out, are corrupt. The Supreme Court, with 3 Trump appointees, wouldn't even hear his case. Lots of accusations, little substance.
