Following the dismissal of Trump’s vote lawsuit in Pennsylvania, his attorney announces that this helped expedite the appeal to the US Supreme Court.
“Today’s decision will help us in our strategy to quickly get to the US Supreme Court.”Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for outgoing US President Donald Trump, said on Saturday.
This statement came hours after federal judge Matthew Brann dismissed the Republican president’s lawsuit over the votes cast in Pennsylvania, leaving him with no options to claim re-election.
Giuliani said that, despite totally disagreeing with this opinion, the Trump team thanks Judge Brann, appointed by former US President of the Democratic Party Barack Obama, for making such a decision, in advance, rather than simply trying of running out of time.
“We will seek an expedited appeal in the Third Circuit,” he insisted, then highlighting the existence of numerous evidences on the fact that the Democrats prevented the Republicans from presenting 50 witnesses, along with another series of evidence related to the circumstance that the Election officials, ignoring Pennsylvania law, prohibited an independent review of the ballots.
Giuliani expressed disappointment that he was not allowed to “present evidence” at a hearing, expressing his desire that “the Third Circuit be as kind as Judge Brann and make a decision on our appeal one way or another as quickly as possible. possible”.
This while the current US president has already reaped two other defeats. On Friday, the state of Georgia certified Biden’s victory and Michigan said it had no information that could change the outcome of the election.
Added to all this is the fact that even Trump’s co-religionists in the Republican Party, including Senator Marco Rubio, are calling for him to accept his defeat and collaborate with the transition of power to Biden.
The New York magnate, who does not accept his defeat before the Democrat in the elections, has resorted to arguments, such as electoral fraud or that he will raise the issue of the elections to higher judicial instances; However, now without Pennsylvania, it is impossible for Trump to reverse the election result.
