Donald Trump’s most recent case was dismissed over the 2020 election results. On Friday, a judge (appointed by Trump) dismissed the case against Pennsylvania, where Trump tried to undo Joe Biden’s victory.
District Judge Stephanos Bibas, who oversaw the case, began the shameful verdict, stating: “Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. The allegations of injustice are serious. But calling the elections unfair does not yet make the allegations specific. then evidence. He’s not here either. “
In 2017, Trump nominated Bibast to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the third round.
The decision details Pennsylvania’s voting laws, pollers, and postal voting, all of which were legal during the presidential election season. Bibas wrote that the Trump campaign did not deserve a command that prevented the state’s election results from becoming official. Bibas noted that “allegations have no merit.”
“Throwing away millions of mail would be drastic and unprecedented if it separated a huge selection of voters and overturned all ballots as well. This remedy would be grossly disproportionate to the procedural challenges raised,” Bibas wrote.
Bibas concluded his decision by pointing out, “Voters, not lawyers, elect the president. Elections are not decided by votes, but by ballot papers.
items here are governed by the Pennsylvania Electoral Act. “
Trump argued that postal ballot papers were treated differently in some counties, depending on whether they were more Democratic or Republican. He also stressed that people watching the counting of votes do not get the necessary restrictions.
Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s attorney, insisted last week that the Pennsylvania election be dug by fraud. However, Giuliani did not provide evidence for these allegations. U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann likened the complaint to “Frankenstein’s monster,” saying it was “accidentally linked.”
Pennsylvania on Tuesday confirmed their election results, noting that Biden won by 81,000 votes. The state had 20 voter votes at stake.
“Once again, I would like to thank the election officials who conducted fair and free elections during an incredibly challenging period in the history of our community and the country,” Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced Tuesday morning. “Our election workers have been constantly attacked and accomplished with respect and dignity.”
