Trump Seeks Expedited Petition Of Pennsylvania Court Ruling by PatienceNgwuli(f): 11:38 am On November 22, 2020
Donald Trump’s theme would seek an expedited appeal after a federal judge in Pennsylvania on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit seeking to block millions of mail-in ballots.

Trump’s counsel, Rudy Giuliani, and campaign senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis said in a joint statement that they would seek an expedited appeal to the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

It was said the latest development will help quicken their effort to push the case to the U.S. Supreme Court, packed with appointees of Trump. The lawsuit alleged that some counties in Pennsylvania allowed mail-in voters to fix problems with the ballots by casting transient ballots, which the campaign said were cast illegally for Democrat Joe Biden.

The U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann's ruling was made because the lawsuit provided “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations, unpled in the operative complaint and unsupported by evidence.

In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state,” wrote the judge, who was appointed by former Democratic President Barack Obama.

U.S. media projected that Biden won 306 Electoral College votes, transcending the 270 votes needed to clinch the presidency.

The watershed moment came on Nov. 7, when Pennsylvania was called for Biden, who now leads Trump in the state by over 81,000 votes, a margin believed to be insurmountable even if those incorrectly cast ballots were excluded.

For the Trump campaign, time is ticking away as Pennsylvania is scheduled to certify its election results on Monday, all but certain to grant its 20 Electoral College votes to Biden.

While Biden has claimed victory, Trump launched a slew of litigations challenging the results in states that, in addition to Pennsylvania, also include Michigan, Georgia, Nevada, and Arizona.

Most of those efforts have either been withdrawn by the campaign itself or rejected by the courts, which cited the lack of proof as to the reason.
