A US appeals court on Friday evening dismissed a complaint from Donald Trump’s campaign team denouncing the unfairness of the election in key Pennsylvania state.
“Saying that an election is unfair does not make it unfair,” wrote the three judges of the Court of Appeal of the 3rd Circuit in a unanimous and scathing decision, saying that the campaign of Trump had neither brought d ‘well-founded accusations, nor evidence to support them. “Voters, not lawyers, choose the President,” they added.
Donald Trump’s campaign brought the action after a federal judge last week ruled “unfounded” a lawsuit brought by Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, who alleged substantial electoral fraud in Pennsylvania. On Tuesday, the state officially certified Joe Biden’s victory.
The number of contested ballots less than the vote gap
Appeals judges, in a 21-page ruling, estimate that the number of mail-in ballots the Trump campaign sought to challenge is well below the vote gap between the two candidates, which is 81,660 votes. , and that most of the claims revolve around issues of state law – not federal law – which were already resolved in the previous judgment.
This defeat is the latest of about 20 others across the country, but it may pave the way for an appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States. This is what the lawyer Jenna Ellis, who supports Rudy Giuliani in his efforts, launched. Referring to a “militant judicial machinery” despite the fact that the three judges were appointed by Republican presidents, including one by Donald Trump himself, who would continue to “cover massive fraud”, she indicated on Twitter their intention to appeal to the Supreme Court, known by the acronym “SCOTUS”.
For his part Donald Trump, although having said he would leave the White House on January 20, continued to attack Detroit, Atlanta and other democratic cities with large black populations as places of “massive electoral fraud”. He also claimed that a poll observer in Pennsylvania discovered computer memory readers that “gave Biden 50,000 votes” each.
The only source of satisfaction for the outgoing president on Friday: the state of Ohio has certified its presidential election results. Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose awarded the votes of Ohio’s 18 top voters to the Republican president. Trump beats Biden by a very large lead, with 53.27% of the vote, against 45.24 for Joe Biden.
