Judge allows Trump campaign attorneys to review tests of Clark County voting equipment

The attorneys will be granted access Tuesday

Updated: December 1, 2020 - 4:04pm

A district court judge in Carson City, Nevada, will allow President Trump and Joe Biden's campaigns to review tests results from voting equipment used in Clark County.

On Monday, Judge James T. Russell granted a motion from President Trump's reelect campaign that will allow attorneys for the campaign to inspect a sealed container of test results for the equipment used in the Nov. 3 election. It is unclear whether the attorneys will have access to the actual equipment or just the test results inside the sealed container.

The judge ordered that the request must be accommodated by 1 p.m. Pacific time on Tuesday.

In a Monday night tweet, the president mentioned the judge's order, tagging former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell, American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp, and former Attorney General of Nevada Adam Laxalt.

All three men have spearheaded the president's post-election ground game in Nevada. 

Judge Russell is also set to hold a hearing Thursday pertaining to the Trump campaign's effort to contest the results of the election.

Nevada has six electoral votes that are presently set to be cast for Democrat Joe Biden when the electors meet on December 14.
