The headquarters of the incumbent US President Donald Trump will urgently seek an appeal against the decision of the District Court in Pennsylvania to dismiss the Republican’s lawsuit demanding not to count the votes cast by mail voters in the election.
“Today’s decision helps us in our strategy to quickly reach the US Supreme Court … We will pursue a swift appeal procedure in the US Third Circuit Court of Appeals,” Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani said in a statement posted on his Twitter…
However, he said that the headquarters of the president, despite the adopted resolution, is grateful to the judge for the quick decision, which was expected. Now, Giuliani said, Trump hopes that “the Third Circuit Court of Appeals will be as accommodating as Judge Brann in considering our appeal in one way or another, as soon as possible.” Because this way this case can quickly move to the US Supreme Court.
Earlier on Saturday, the Pennsylvania District Court dismissed a lawsuit by the incumbent’s campaign headquarters, which demanded not to take into account the ballots of voters who voted by mail when counting votes in elections. The court’s decision notes that the headquarters of the incumbent president presented “baseless legal arguments and speculative accusations”, not supported by evidence.
On November 17, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit filed by the Republican candidate’s headquarters alleging that polling stations in Philadelphia had been restricted from observing the counting of votes.
The day before, Trump’s headquarters abandoned a number of key claims on the counting of votes in Pennsylvania.
Thus, the accusations against the employees of the election commission disappeared from the statement of claim. Earlier, Trump’s headquarters stated that they did not allow Republicans to observe the vote count. And based on this, Trump said that the victory in Pennsylvania should be given to him.
On November 19, Lieutenant Governor Brad Raffensperger announced that Georgia’s recounts for the US presidential election confirmed the victory of Democratic candidate Joseph Biden.
On November 15, Trump pledged to file many “big lawsuits” over electoral irregularities. However, a Michigan court has already dismissed the Republican lawsuit, and another five lawsuits in Pennsylvania and Arizona have failed.
The US presidential election took place on November 3. Leading American media and Democrats have already announced Biden’s victory.
