The judge calls Trump’s request strange in the Wisconsin lawsuit

MADISON, WIS. (AP) – A federal judge hearing President Donald Trump’s lawsuit to overthrow Democrat Joe Biden’s Wisconsin victory says the president’s request to “refer the matter back” to GOP-controlled legislation to select new voters order, “strange. ”

The federal case is one of two that Trump put forward in Wisconsin with similar arguments.

He filed another lawsuit in the state court, which the Wisconsin Supreme Court refused to hear before going through the lower courts for the first time.

A hearing on both cases was scheduled for Thursday, with judges drawing attention to the importance of resolving the issues before the election panel met on 14 December.
