On Saturday, a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit against Trump’s campaign in Pennsylvania, trying to invalidate millions of votes by issuing a scathing statement, saying the state could move forward by certifying its election results.
U.S. District Judge Matthew Branch ruled that the campaign presented “tense legal arguments without grounds and speculative allegations” that were “unsupported by evidence.”
“In the United States, this cannot justify disenfranchisement of any voter, let alone all voters in its sixth most populous state. Our people, laws and institutions demand more,”
Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro (D) celebrated the decision on Twitter.
“These allegations were useless from the beginning and for an audience. The will of the people will prevail. These baseless lawsuits must end,” he wrote on Twitter.

Trump’s campaign filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania earlier this month, alleging irregularities in the state’s voting process.
In particular, the campaign claims that ballots are treated differently depending on whether they are mailed or submitted in person. They demanded the suspension of the certification while the case was played out.
The president’s personal lawyer Rudy GiulianiRudy Giuliani Cheney, the best Republican lawmakers want Trump’s election campaign evidence of Donald Trump Jr. represented Trump’s campaign in federal court this week, arguing that the community should not certify its results.
In a statement Saturday night, Giuliani said Bran’s decision to appoint former President Obama “turns out to help us in our strategy to get to the US Supreme Court expeditiously.”
“While we do not fully agree with this view, we are grateful to the Obama-appointed judge for making this expected decision quickly, instead of just trying to pull the clock,” Giuliani said in a joint statement with Trump’s senior legal counsel, Jenna. Alice.
They said the campaign would seek an “accelerated appeal to the Third Chain”, claiming that Democrats had thwarted their efforts to bring out witnesses and other evidence the campaign claimed there was.
Trump’s lawyers said the case “seems to be quickly transferred to the US Supreme Court.”
The decision comes two days after Giuliani joined other lawyers in Trump’s campaign for an approximately 90-minute press conference at Republican National Committee headquarters, where Giuliani made baseless allegations of election fraud and described widespread efforts to deny re-election. .
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R), a vocal critic of Trump’s GP, called the press conference a “wreck of the train” while Christopher Krebs, the top federal cybersecurity officer who was fired by Trump last week, called the oppressor “the most dangerous 1 hour and 45 minutes of television in American history.”
The president also provoked a backlash this week after personally addressing Michigan officials as he and his lawyers stepped up their campaign to change the election result.
Several Republican lawmakers came out and called on Trump’s campaign to publish evidence in support of his election claims after the Giuliani press conference.
