Pennsylvania Court Asked To Declare Trump As Winner In Newest Filing

President-Trump

President Trump’s campaign filed another lawsuit on Wednesday arguing that he should be named the winner in the battleground state.

The team also noted that the GOP-controlled state legislature should be given the authority to assign its electoral votes, The Hill reported.

The filing also rehashed an earlier claim that the campaign’s constitutional rights were violated because observers were not given adequate access as election officials processed mail-in ballots.

Additionally, the Trump campaign’s lawsuit says 1.5 million votes across the state “should not have been counted” and that they led to “returns indicating Biden won Pennsylvania.”

The filing reads, “In contrast to the 2002 International Electoral Standards … the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has struck out in a unique direction among democracies and declared that meaningful observers are not part of verification and votes may be counted without any review by political campaigns and parties.”

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar and the seven counties named as defendants in the new lawsuit are asking U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann to throw out the claim from the Trump campaign.


The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected the Trump campaign’s lawsuit claiming Philadelphia violated state election law based on how it handled ‘observers’ at a vote counting center.
