Judge throws out Trump bid to stop PA vote certification – Cleveland, Ohio

Williamsport, Pennsylvania. (AP) — Pennsylvania authorities can prove election results showing that Democrat Joe Biden is currently winning the state with more than 80,000 votes.

Matthew Blanc, a judge in the US Central District of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, declined a request for an injunction from President Donald Trump’s campaign, ruining his incumbent hope of somehow overturning the outcome of the presidential election.

In his ruling, Mr. Bran said the Trump campaign was “not backed by evidence … a tense legal debate without merit or speculative criticism.”

“In the United States, this cannot justify the deprivation of civil rights by a single voter, not to mention all voters in the sixth most populous state,” he said. “Our people, laws, and institutions demand more.”

Mr. Trump violates the US Constitution’s guarantee of equality before the law when Pennsylvania counties take various approaches to notify voters of the technical issues of mail voting submitted before the election. Claimed to have done.

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Bookbar and the seven counties of Biden’s majority in the proceedings alleged that Trump had previously filed a similar claim and was defeated.

They told Bran that the Trump campaign’s remedy, which casts millions of votes on suspicion of isolated problems, was too extreme, especially after most of them were aggregated.

“There is no justification at any level for the fundamental disfranchisement they seek,” Bookbar’s attorney wrote in a brief document filed Thursday.

Democratic Attorney General Josh Shapiro of Pennsylvania tweeted “another person bites the dust” shortly after Bran’s decision.

The state’s 20 electoral colleges wouldn’t have been enough to give Trump a second term. The county must prove the results to Boockvar by Monday, after which she will give her own proof.

Democratic Governor Tom Wolfe informs electors of electors who should appear to vote in the Capitol on December 14.
