Trump's lawsuit over voting in Pennsylvania is dismissed by the federal appeals court docket

President Donald Trump's lawsuit over electoral processes in Pennsylvania was dismissed by a federal appeals court on Friday. That decision paves the way for Trump to take this lawsuit to the Supreme Court, which he has been doing for weeks.

Trump can take this to the Supreme Court

Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani argued in a lower court that there was widespread electoral fraud in the state, officially won by Joe Biden with more than 80,000 votes. However, the 3rd US Court of Appeals ruled that "the campaign's claims are unfounded".

“The activist judicial machine in Pennsylvania continues to cover up allegations of massive fraud. We are very grateful that we had the opportunity to present evidence and facts to the PA State legislature. Off to SCOTUS! "said Jenna Ellis, Trump's attorney and campaign advisor.

We are very grateful that we had the opportunity to present evidence and facts to the PA State legislature.

Off to SCOTUS!

The Court of Appeal upheld the ruling of US District Judge Matthew Brann, who said the Trump campaign complaint was "arbitrarily stitched together like Frankenstein's monster."

Judges decide against Trump

All three appeals court judges were appointed by Republican presidents, according to Fox News.

“Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Injustice charges are grave. But calling a choice unfair doesn't make it that way. Fees require specific allegations and then proof. We don't have any here, ”wrote Judge Stephanos Bibas in his decision.

Although various media outlets have declared Biden the election winner, Trump has continued to fight legal challenges in various states. He has claimed that his lawsuits will prove that the election was "rigged" and will expose widespread electoral fraud.

Trump will keep fighting

Trump admitted Thursday that "it will be very difficult to admit" because he claims he committed "massive fraud" in the election.

"Whether we can get this machine moving quickly or not – because time is not on our side, everything else is on our side, the facts are on our side, this was a massive fraud," said Trump. "This was a rigged choice … this race is far from over."
