After the Supreme Court of the United States rejected a constitutional challenge brought by Texas against several battleground states, Democrats and the liberal media declared President Trump’s campaign to overturn the election as dead in the water.
However, the Trump campaign just issued an independent filing with the SCOTUS seeking to reverse three changes to Pennsylvania’s mail-in balloting system prior to and immediately following the election.
“This petition follows a related Pennsylvania case where Justice Alito and two other justices observed ‘the constitutionality of the [Pennsylvania] Supreme Court’s decision,” said Trump campaign attorney Rudy Giuliani in a statement released Sunday.
The Trump team alleges that there is a “strong likelihood” that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court violated the constitution by allowing last-minute election changes that could have influenced the outcome of the election.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Giuliani alleges election officials were not allowed to check if signatures on ballots were genuine, blaming the Legislature for prohibiting campaigns from challenging mail-in ballots during canvassing for irregularities and not properly allowing observers to be close enough to poll workers to see how ballots were counted. Giuliani added that the Legislature eliminated statutory requirements that voters properly sign, address, and date mail-in ballots.
“The petition seeks all appropriate remedies, including vacating the appointment of electors committed to Joseph Biden and allowing the Pennsylvania General Assembly to select their replacements,” Giuliani continued.
The petition requests the Supreme Court return a response by December 24 in order to potentially rule on the challenge before January 6th, the day Congress meets to officially recognize the winner of the 2020 election.
