Trump’s campaign lost another battle Friday in an attempt to prove mass election fraud, something they have so far been unable to do. This time, the Third District Court of Appeals rejected the Pennsylvania’s request for an order to revoke Keystone State’s vote certification.
Trump-appointed Judge Stefanos Bibas, who wrote the opinion of the three-judge panel, said the campaign’s arguments were unfounded. Pennsylvania confirmed the election results last week, and the federal government’s general services administration allowed the formal transition process to take place.
“Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Accusations of injustice are serious. But declaring elections to be unfair does not. The accusations require concrete allegations and then evidence. We have none here,”
In particular, the Trump campaign objected that the Secretary of State of Pennsylvania and some counties are restricting polling observers and allowing voters to fix technical problems with mailing ballots. Bibas rejected these allegations.
“In this case, it is not a question of whether these allegations are true. Rather, the campaign appealed on very narrow grounds: whether the District Court abused its judgment by not allowing the campaign to amend its appeal a second time. No,” wrote Bibas. “… Nor does the campaign deserve an order to revoke the certification of its votes in Pennsylvania. The campaign’s claims are unfounded. The number of ballots it specifically disputes is far less than approximately 81,000 votes of victory. And it never claims fraud or that any votes were cast by illegal voters. ”
Trump’s campaign attorneys Jenna Ellis and Rudy Giuliani responded to the ruling on Twitter: “The Pennsylvania activist judiciary continues to cover up allegations of massive fraud. We are very grateful to have the opportunity to present evidence and facts to the state’s PA legislature. Forward to SCOTUS! “
Earlier this week, Mr. Trump saidand again falsely claims to have won Pennsylvania. The president made the remarks as he convened a meeting hosted by Republicans in the state. On Thanksgiving, Mr. Trump said he would leave the White House if Mr. Biden won the Electoral College vote next month, but he appears to have returned it on Twitter Friday.
Biden can enter the White House as president only if he can prove that his ridiculous “80,000,000 votes” were not obtained fraudulently or illegally. When you see what happened in Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Milwaukee, mass voter fraud, he has a big unsolvable problem! “said the president falsely in his tweet.
