Harrisburg, Pensilvania /
A federal judge ruled that election officials in Pennsylvania can certify election results where they currently show Democrat Joe Biden won the state by more than 80,000 votes, dealing yet another blow to Donald Trump’s campaign in his effort to invalidate the election. .
The district judge in Williamsport, Matthew Brann, rejected the request for a court order from President Trump’s campaign, thus culminating the incumbent’s hopes of nullifying, in some way, the results of the presidential race.
In his ruling, Fire said the Trump campaign presented “legal arguments without merit, with speculative accusations and without support of evidence. In the United States this cannot justify the deprivation of the right to vote of a single voter, much less of all the voters of his sixth most populous state “, adding that” our people, laws and institutions demand more. “
Trump had argued that the guarantee of equal protection of the Constitution of the United Statess under the law was violated when the counties of Pennsylvania They took different approaches to notify voters before the election of technical problems with their mailed ballots.
They told Fire that the remedy sought by the Trump campaign, to dismiss millions of votes for alleged isolated problemsIt was too extreme, particularly after most of them had been counted.
“There is no justification at any level for the radical disenfranchisement they seek,” Boockvar’s attorneys wrote in a brief filed Thursday.
The state’s 20 electoral votes alone would not have been enough to give Trump a second term. Counties must certify their results to Boockvar by Monday, after which she will do her own certification. The Democratic Governor Tom Wolf will notify the electors of the winning candidate to appear to vote on Capitol Hill on December 14.
