A U.S. appeals court on Friday dismissed a claim by Donald Trump's campaign that the election was unfair, and refused to block certification of Joe Biden's victory in key Pennsylvania state.
Saying an election is unfair doesn't make it unfair, wrote the three judges in a unanimous and scathing decision. They believe that Trump's campaign has produced neither founded accusations nor evidence to back them up.
As for Donald Trump's campaign, this setback comes after a series of twenty legal defeats across the country.
The US president continues to dismiss Joe Biden's victory without evidence.
Just so you understand this election was fraudulent, he told reporters Thursday.
Donald Trump's campaign brought the action after a federal judge ruled last week
unfounded a lawsuit brought by Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal attorney, alleging substantial electoral fraud in Pennsylvania.
Following this judicial failure, the victory of the Democratic candidate in Pennsylvania was therefore officially certified on Tuesday, and the rejection of the appeal confirms this process.
The American president's teams have
never claimed that anyone treated the Trump campaign or the votes for Trump less well than the Biden campaign or the votes for Biden, explain the judges of the court of appeal in their judgment.
They cannot win this case. They admitted that they were not claiming there was voter fraud, they add.
Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis denounces a
militant judicial machinery despite the fact that all three judges were appointed by Republican presidents, including one by Donald Trump himself, has signaled on Twitter their intention to appeal to the Supreme Court.
