OFF TO THE SUPREME COURT: Federal Appeals Court Dismisses Lawsuit in PA Paving Way For SCOTUS Ruling

On Friday, a federal appeals court dismissed the Trump campaign’s lawsuit in Pennsylvania over voter fraud, paving the way for the Supreme Court to take up the case.

Former New York City mayor and President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is arguing that widespread voter fraud took place in states where former Vice President Joe Biden won by over 80,000 votes.

The federal appeals court dismissed the claim, stating that “the campaign’s claims have no merit.”

“The activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania continues to cover up the allegations of massive fraud. We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to present proof and the facts to the PA state legislature. On to SCOTUS!,” tweeted Trump attorney and campaign advisor Jenna Ellis.

Check out what Fox News reported:

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 “rigged.”

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.

However, 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 claimed that similar schemes also took place in Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, Arizona and Georgia.
