Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and Trump campaign senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis released a statement Saturday evening, after a Pennsylvania judge dismissed their lawsuit alleging widespread irregularities with mail-in ballots in the Nov. 3 election in multiple counties across the state.
U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann dismissed the lawsuit, saying it “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations … unsupported by evidence.”
Saturday evening, Ellis posted the following statement in response.
“Today’s decision turns out to help us in our strategy to get expeditiously to the U.S. 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.
“We will be seeking an expedited appeal to the Third Circuit. There is so much evidence that in Pennsylvania, Democrats eliminated our opportunity to present 50 witnesses and other evidence that election officials blatantly ignored Pennsylvania’s law denying independent review. This resulted in 682,777 ballots being cast illegally, wittingly or unwittingly. This is just an extension of the Big Tech, Big Media, Corrupt Democrat censorship of damning facts the American public needs to know.
“We are disappointed we did not at least get the opportunity to present our evidence at the hearing. Unfortunately the censorship continues. We hope that the Third Circuit will be as gracious as Judge Brann in deciding our appeal one way or the other as expeditiously as possible. This is another case that appears to be moving quickly to the United States Supreme Court.”
