A federal appeals court dismissed a lawsuit by the Trump campaign over Pennsylvania‘s voting procedures on Friday, paving the way for the issue to escalate all the way up to the Supreme Court.
Despite Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, sostenendo dinanzi a un tribunale di grado inferiore che si è verificata una diffusa frode degli elettori in a state where President-elect Joe Biden won by over 80,000 voti, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said “the campaign’s claims have no merit.”
La campagna Trump ha la possibilità di chiedere agli Stati Uniti. Corte suprema per provvedimenti ingiuntivi di emergenza, che sarebbe andato al giudice Samuel Alito, che poi probabilmente chiederebbe ai suoi otto colleghi di intervenire.
“La macchina giudiziaria attivista in Pennsylvania continua a coprire le accuse di frodi massicce. Siamo molto grati di aver avuto l'opportunità di presentare prove e fatti al legislatore statale dell'Autorità Palestinese. Su SCOTUS!,” Jenna Ellis, L'avvocato di Trump e il consigliere della campagna, ha detto in una dichiarazione su Twitter dopo la sentenza del tribunale.
Friday’s ruling upheld U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann take on the Trump campaign’s error-filled complaint, which Brann said was “like Frankenstein’s Monster, has been haphazardly stitched together.”
The three judges on the panel were all appointed by Republican presidents.
“Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here,” Judge Stephanos Bibas, a Trump appointee and former law school professor, wrote in his ruling.
The decision is the latest blow to Trump’s efforts to prove the election outcome in several battleground states where he lost were “truccato.”
Giuliani held a public hearing alongside Trump on Wednesday and alleged that Republicans were denied the opportunity to observe the canvassing process, with Trump claiming they have “hundreds and hundreds of affidavits” of witnesses’ personal stories to back their argument up.
tuttavia, the so-called proof has not been presented during numerous court hearings, with judges repeatedly ruling against the Trump campaign.
In addition to Pennsylvania, Giuliani ha affermato che schemi simili hanno avuto luogo anche nel Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, Arizona e Georgia.
