HELP! Need ammo for a trump-supporting sibling

Does anyone have a link to a site where a watchdog group is keeping track of all of trump's offenses/violations against the Constitution, ways he's devastating the government, the environment, our democracy, etc.? I need ammo to argue with my Fox-watching, trump-supporting sibling. She thinks trump is doing a damn good job with the economy and helping small business owners. She uses that to excuse his misogyny, his racism, and his ineptitude elsewhere.
My older sister (only by a couple of years) is a kindhearted and loving person, and a successful small business owner whose just a bit shallow in her thinking and have watched a bit too much of Fox news. I believe she is salvageable and can be led to "see the light" if i have enough ammo to make a reasoned argument with her.

Thanks, and happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Lawrence Tribe: "Trump running scared"

https://www.msnbc.com/the-last-word/watch/lawrence-trump-afraid-after-election-loss-1366792259542?v=raila&

"every legal action Whittaker attempts to take now subject to a legal challenge in court...
Trump expects Whittaker to protect him. Whittaker knows he's publicly suspected as having been installed in order to commit crimes for Trump.
He is expected to commit multiple count of obstruction of justice if necessary like John Mitchell did for Nixon, and went to prison."


Quite a good episode of Lawrence Tribe. CHILLING.

NYT says a Blue Wave did happen

See the graphic; picture says a thousand words. I've seen alot of people post here and at other sites there wasn't a blue wave. As Joe Biden says, Malarkey! There was a wave, and it got us what we wanted - we won back the House, and we flipped governorships.

Problems at the polls? Here's what's happening now

An array of federal agencies is monitoring the election as it unfolds, including the departments of Justice and Homeland Security, intelligence officials and the FBI. Federal and state officials – who received $380 million this year to beef up their election systems – have deployed sensors on local networks to try and detect intrusions.
As of 9 a.m. Eastern, Homeland Security officials said there was nothing significant to report.

Arizona
Election Day got off to a rocky start when voters in one town outside Phoenix showed up to vote only to find their polling place had been foreclosed upon the day before.
Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes said the landlord of the building, which appears to be a strip mall, locked it overnight after workers had already set up the polling place. There are ballots inside the building, he said.
Fontes said his staff is working with the sheriff’s office to see whether they can forcibly enter the property to collect the ballots and equipment. In the meantime, he said poll workers set up a temporary polling place in the parking lot.

Ohio
Voters in Greater Cincinnati encountered long lines and a few technical glitches as they cast ballots Tuesday morning. Election officials said voters and poll workers were confused by a change in the voting machine system there that now alerts voters if they have "under voted," or left some races on their ballots blank. Electronic voting machines there reportedly rejected some ballots that had not been completely filled out.
