It is rare to see such a tough, withering opinion … but these are not normal times. I have recently written about my annoyance of seeing continued allegations of fraud to “steal” the election by Trump … backed up by at most random, routine irregularities.
Please lead or get out of the way! I want to see a real, vigorous offense. But with this opinion, I think all we can look forward to is a final death spasm. If there are no evidence by now, there sure hasn’t been any. It’s all been sales pitch and hot air from Trump since election night…
So Trump’s appeal to the Third Circuit Federals Appeals Court has failed. Per AP News article:
3rd Circuit Judge Stephanos Bibas, a Trump appointee, writing for the three-judge panel, all appointed by Republican presidents: “Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.”
Trump promises to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“The activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania continues to cover up the allegations of massive fraud,” Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis tweeted soon after Friday’s ruling. “On to SCOTUS!”
