The Trump campaign lost another fight on Friday trying to prove mass fraud in the elections, which they previously couldn’t. This time, the Third Circle Court of Appeals dismissed the Pennsylvanian Campaign’s motion for a restraining order to reverse Keystone State’s confirmation of its votes.
Trump-appointed Judge Stephanos Bibas, who drafted the opinion for the three-judge panel, said the campaign’s arguments were unfounded. Pennsylvania confirmed its election results last week, and the federal government’s General Services Administration approved the formal transition process.
“Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Accusations of injustice are grave. But calling an election unfair doesn’t make it that way. Accusations require specific allegations and then evidence. We don’t have any here,” Bibas wrote in his opinion.
In particular, the Trump campaign objected to the Pennsylvania Secretary of State and some counties restricting election observers and allowing voters to fix technical problems with postal ballot papers. Bibas denied these claims.
“In this case, it’s not about whether these claims are true. Rather, the campaign is appealing for a very narrow reason: whether the district court abused its discretion by not letting the campaign change its complaint a second time. It didn’t “wrote Bibas. “… The campaign also does not deserve a restraining order to revoke Pennsylvania’s certification of its votes. The campaign’s claims are unfounded. The number of ballots it specifically challenges is far less than the profit margin of around 81,000 votes . And she never claims. ” Fraud or that any votes were cast by illegal voters. “
Trump campaign lawyers Jenna Ellis and Rudy Giuliani responded to the decision on Twitter: “The activist judicial machine in Pennsylvania continues to cover up allegations of massive fraud. We are very grateful that we had the opportunity to present the PA evidence and facts to be submitted to the Landtag. Off to SCOTUS! “
Earlier this week, Mr Trump saidand again falsely claiming he won Pennsylvania. The president made these remarks when convening a meeting organized by Republicans in the state. On Thanksgiving Day, Mr Trump said he would be leaving the White House if Mr Biden won next month’s electoral college election, but he appeared to go back on that in a tweet on Friday.
“Biden can only join the White House as President if he can show that his ridiculous 80,000,000 votes weren’t obtained fraudulently or illegally. When you look at what happened in Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee, he’s got a big one Election fraud is an insoluble problem! “Said the president incorrectly in his tweet.
