We always suspected that President Trump’s chances at overturning the election in key states that went for Joe Biden was going to be a long shot.
And why? Precisely this: The people who have the power, as well as the constitutional and moral obligation, to do the right thing and acknowledge that the election was stolen from Trump, based on the reams of evidence his campaign has collected, would come down to a quality few other than the president possess.
GOP legislatures in the affected states could and should either certify their electors for Trump, hold a new election (and quickly — which won’t happen), or throw out their results as tainted.
But most aren’t likely to do this, if any will.
Federal courts when presented with the data collected by the campaign and independent patriotic lawyers like Sidney Powell should rule that results are hopelessly tainted and this cannot be certified.
But so far, judges lack the courage to do the right thing as well, as evidenced by the latest act of legal and constitutional cowardice in Pennsylvania.
A federal appeals court dismissed a lawsuit by the Trump campaign over Pennsylvania’s voting procedures on Friday, paving the way for the issue to escalate all the way up to the Supreme Court.
Despite Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani arguing to a lower court that widespread voter fraud occurred in a state where President-elect Joe Biden won by over 80,000 votes, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said 'the campaign's claims have no merit.'
The Trump campaign has the option of asking the U.S. Supreme Court for emergency injunctive relief, which would go to Justice Samuel Alito, who would then likely ask his eight colleagues to weigh in.
“The activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania continues to cover up the allegations of massive fraud. We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to present proof and the facts to the PA state legislature. On to SCOTUS!,” Jenna Ellis, Trump’s attorney and campaign adviser, said in a statement on Twitter after the court ruling.
Just to review, now, suddenly, even signed, sworn affidavits no longer qualify as evidence — got it?’
Let’s hope the U.S. Supreme Court doesn’t agree and abide by this judicial cowardice.
