US District Judge of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania Matthew Brann on Saturday dismissed a Trump campaign lawsuit seeking to block Pennsylvania from certifying its election results.
Judge Brann, an Obama appointee torched Trump’s legal team and accused them of asking the Court to “disenfranchise almost 7 million voters.”
The Trump campaign argued the equal protection clause, however the Obama judge shot back and said, “That some counties may have chosen to implement the guidance (or not), or to implement it differently, does not constitute an equal protection violation.”
President Trump’s legal team responded to Brann’s ruling on Saturday:
“Today’s decision turns out to help us in our strategy to get expeditiously to the US Supreme Court. Although we fully disagree with this opinion, we’re thankful to the Obama-appointed judge for making this anticipated decision quickly, rather than simply trying to run out the clock,” Rudy Giuliani, Attorney to Trump and Jenna Ellis, Senior Legal Advisor to Trump 2020 Campaign wrote.
President Trump was up by nearly 700,000 votes in Pennsylvania on election night with 65% reporting.
Since there was no way for Biden to overcome Trump with the remaining number of uncounted ballots, the Pennsylvania Secretary of State announced that MILLIONS of ballots had been found.
Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said the Democrats counted nearly 700,000 votes for Joe Biden without allowing GOP poll watchers to observe the ballot counting.
