President Donald Trump’s campaign team on Sunday filed an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse cases by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that changed mail-in ballot laws.
The campaign’s case (pdf) is attempting to reverse three cases decided by the state’s Supreme Court that “illegally changed” the mail-in ballot laws “immediately before and after the 2020 presidential election.” The lawyers contended that the Supreme Court’s decisions are in violation of Article II of the Constitution and the 2000 Bush v. Gore ruling.
The lawsuit is seeking “all appropriate remedies,” which includes the vacation of electors that were committed to Joe Biden and allowing the Pennsylvania Legislature to call up their own electors. The Electoral College already voted on Dec. 14, although the GOP in Pennsylvania said their own electors cast votes for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence in a bid to preserve legal challenges in the state.
“The Campaign also moved for expedited consideration, asking the Supreme Court to order responses by December 23 and a reply by December 24 to allow the U.S. Supreme Court to rule before Congress meets on January 6 to consider the votes of the electoral college,” according to the Trump news release, authored by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. “This represents the Campaign’s first independent U.S. Supreme Court filing and seeks relief based on the same Constitutional arguments successfully raised in Bush v. Gore,” it added.
Furthermore, they argued, the lawsuit will attempt to reverse several decisions that “eviscerated the Pennsylvania Legislature’s protections against mail ballot fraud.”
They alleged that these laws prohibited election officials to check whether mail-in ballot signatures were genuine during Election Day canvassing, removed the right of certain campaigns to challenge the ballots when they were canvassed for forged signatures or other issues, prohibited campaign poll observers from getting too close to the ballot-tabulation efforts in some areas like Philadelphia, and removing the statutory requirement stipulating that voters properly sign, address, and date mail ballots.
“Collectively, these three decisions resulted in counting approximately 2.6 million mail ballots in violation of the law as enacted by the Pennsylvania Legislature,” Trump’s lawyer John Eastman wrote (pdf), adding that “more than enough” ballots are involved to affect the election outcome.
Eastman asked that the Supreme Court require Secretary of Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar to respond to the campaign’s filing by Wednesday. The Epoch Times has reached out to Boockvar’s office for comment.
Earlier this month, the Supreme Court rejected to hear a lawsuit filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton against Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin—asserting that those states made unconstitutional changes to their election laws. In a 7-2 ruling not to hear the case, the court said Texas lacks standing, in a move that drew condemnation from Trump and other conservatives.
Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) filed a lawsuit against Pennsylvania’s top executives alleging the state changed its mail-in ballot laws in an unconstitutional manner. The U.S. Supreme Court earlier in December denied Kelly’s request for an injunction to prevent election officials in the state from further certifying the Nov. 3, although Kelly said his case is “alive and well.”
“And we are looking, how do we get the court to take on the case for its merits of being constitutional or unconstitutional. That’s all we’re looking at,” Kelly said. “That’s a huge ask, by the way. But we are in the midst of a constitutional crisis right now in our country, and we have to get answers, and we have to get it from the highest court in the land.
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehaviour acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
