President Donald Trump’s legal team on Sunday appealed the federal judge’s ruling that struck down his campaign’s effort to block the certification of votes in Pennsylvania.
The filing comes just a day after U.S. Middle District Judge Matthew Brann in Williamsport, Pa., rejected the campaign’s request for an injunction. They want to stop the certification of the election.
“Plaintiffs ask this Court to disenfranchise almost seven million voters,” Brann said Saturday. “This Court has been unable to find any case in which a plaintiff has sought such a drastic remedy in the contest of an election, in terms of the sheer volume of votes asked to be invalidated.”
“One might expect that when seeking such a startling outcome, a plaintiff would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption, such that this Court would have no option but to regrettably grant the proposed injunctive relief despite the impact it would have on such a large group of citizens,” the judge added.
