A federal judge has dismissed last morning of this Saturday the most important demand that the campaign of the outgoing president, Donald Trump, had presented in Pennsylvania, y the left virtually no options to reverse the outcome of the elections in that state on which the keys to the White House depend.
The judge’s decision Matthew Brann implies that lPennsylvania counties have a free pass to certify the result of the November 3 elections, for which this Monday is the deadline, and confirm the president-elect as the winner of the territory, Joe Biden.
The lawsuit was intended to invalidate millions of votes cast by mail arguing that the ability for voters to correct errors on their ballots in certain counties was detrimental to Trump’s party, the Republican.
The magistrate ruled that the Trump campaign had resorted to “Flawed and Meritless Legal Arguments, Already Speculative Accusations” in his attempt to discard millions of votes.
“In the United States of America this cannot justify the suppression of the right to vote for a single voter, much less all voters in its sixth most populous state,” Brann wrote.
The decision is a profound setback for the Trump campaign’s legal strategy, which has already lost other cases in Pennsylvania, in addition to Michigan, Georgia, Nevada and Arizona in their complaint without evidence that electoral fraud has been perpetrated.
This demand It was the last large draft that was active in Pennsylvania, and the attorney for the outgoing president, Rudy Giuliani, he defended her personally during a hearing last Tuesday.
Pensilvania era crucial para Trump
Without Pennsylvania, it is virtually impossible for Trump to reverse the election result, since the Biden’s advantage in the Electoral College is such (306 votes vs. 232), that the current president should demonstrate a major fraud in several states to be imposed.
Trump already received two other setbacks this Friday: the first in Georgia, which certified Biden’s victory; and the second in Michigan, where two state legislators whom he invited to the White House affirmed, after the meeting, that they had no information that could change the outcome of the elections in their state.
Without reversing the result in multiple states, something extremely unlikely, Trump will not be able to prevent Biden assumes the presidency on January 20, and the ways to achieve it are closed with each passing day.
Trump’s team only has until December 8 to develop its legal strategy, because on that day all states should have resolved any disputes and the governor of each territory must send the certified results to Congress.
