The Trump 2020 Campaign looked ahead to a potential Supreme Court fight after a panel of federal appeals judges in Pennsylvania dismissed the campaign’s lawsuit over alleged voter fraud in the presidential election.
“The campaign’s claims have no merit,” the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia ruled Friday, despite Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani arguing to a lower court that widespread voter fraud occurred in a state where President-elect Joe Biden won by just over 80,000 votes.
Jenna Ellis, Trump’s attorney and campaign adviser, blasted the ruling in a statement on Twitter.
“The activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania continues to cover up the allegations of massive fraud,” Ellis wrote. “We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to present proof and the facts to the PA state legislature. On to SCOTUS!”
The campaign has the option to go to the U.S. Supreme Court for emergency injunctive relief.
