Trump asks Supreme Court to void Wisconsin election results


#President #Trump filed a petition #Wednesday night asking the #Supreme #Court to declare the state of #Wisconsin’s election “unconstitutional” in a last-ditch bid to void results before #Congress meets on #Jan. 6 to certify the #Electoral #College’s vote.

#Representatives for #Trump said the lawsuit, filed in his personal capacity as a candidate for office, was a bid to “ensure election integrity” following the campaign’s unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud in the state. #Trump petitioned the #Supreme #Court days after an appeals court affirmed a lower court ruling that the president’s claims of fraud were filed too late and were without merit.

“#President #Trump continues to fight for the #American people and election integrity. #We have to restore integrity to our process through every legal and constitutionally viable mechanism,” #Trump attorneys #Rudy #Giuliani and #Jenna #Ellis said in a statement. “#America has seen the extent of corruption in this election and is demanding swift resolution. #We hope that state legislatures in #Wisconsin and the five other states will not wait on a court order but exercise their plenary constitutional authority and we continue to appeal to them as well as seek judicial remedy.”

#Trump’s attorneys filed a motion asking the #Supreme #Court to consider his case in an expedited manner. The motion cited #Congress’ review of #Electoral #College results on #Jan. 6 as well as #President-elect #Joe #Biden’s scheduled inauguration on #Jan. 20.

The petition also called for decertification of #Wisconsin electors that cast votes for #Biden, clearing the way for the state legislature to appoint new electors.

#Trump’s latest legal maneuver came one day after his campaign asked the #Supreme #Court to review a recent ruling by the #Wisconsin #Supreme #Court. The state’s high court voted 4-3 to dismiss a #Trump campaign lawsuit that sought to invalidate more than 221,000 ballots in #Milwaukee and #Dane counties, both #Democratic strongholds.

The #Trump campaign focused its challenge on the use of absentee ballots, which the president and his supporters have long claimed were susceptible to fraud. The #Wisconsin #Supreme #Court determined that three of #Trump’s four claims of voter fraud were filed too late in the election process to be considered. The fourth claim was determined to be meritless.

The #Electoral #College voted to certify #Biden as president-elect on #Dec. 14. #Trump has yet to concede defeat in the election.
