A United States federal court of appeals rejected this Friday a lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump’s campaign against the state of Pennsylvania for alleged fraud during the presidential election on November 3, in which Democrat Joe Biden won.

Biden obtained just over 80 million votes and 306 voters in the electoral process and became president-elect, against the almost 74 million and 232 voters of Trump, who was seeking reelection. Both are now awaiting the electoral college vote on December 14 that will ratify Biden’s victory.

But since then the White House has ignored the result, alleging a “gigantic fraud” allegedly committed in the states where the difference in votes was narrower, including Pennsylvania. So far the Trump administration has not presented evidence of the alleged fraud and all the lawsuits have been rejected for lack of merit.

That same expression was used by the members of the court when justifying their ruling, which confirmed the decision of a magistrate of first instance a week ago. The lawsuit sought to block the certification of the results by state authorities, a necessary step so that then the “electors” of each territory will formally vote for Biden on December 14, thus making his victory official.

Other key states where Trump’s legal team failed to avoid certification of results include Georgia, Nevada, and Michigan, who did it in the last week. Wisconsin is the other territory that has not yet done so and where the Republican’s lawyers have filed lawsuits to try to prevent it from happening.

The 21-page ruling highlights that while Rudy Giuliani, a personal attorney for Trump and his efforts to undermine the result, has publicly alleged that fraud has been committed, does not do the same in court, where he is under oath.

“Calling an election unfair does not mean that is the case. Accusations and concrete evidence are needed to press charges. There are neither here”, Expresses a paragraph of the sentence.

According to CNBC, the complainants did not say that fraud had been committed, but rather that the mailed ballots had been handled differently if they came from Democratic-leaning counties than Republican-leaning counties. They also complained that some observers had not been able to witness the count as they wanted. Based on these arguments, they wanted the validity of millions of ballots to be invalidated.

Jenna Ellis, another member of Trump’s legal team, said the ruling implied that “the partisan judicial machine in Pennsylvania continues to cover allegations of massive fraud.” “To the Supreme Court!”he added in a post on his Twitter account.

Biden won all 20 Pennsylvania electoral votes by a difference of more than 80,000 ballots. The first results showed an advantage for Trump, considering that the votes of those who cast them in person were counted first. As votes-by-mail – overwhelmingly Democratic – began to appear in the results, the trend changed until the current president-elect was the winner..
