December 21 According to US media reports, on the 20th local time, the Trump campaign filed a complaint to the U.S. Supreme Court, demanding the overturn of three cases related to mail-in ballots by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to challenge the victory of U.S. President-elect Biden in the state.
This is the first time that the camp has filed an independent complaint in the Supreme Court.
According to Fox News, Associated Press and other media reports, the Trump campaign is still trying to overturn the November 3 election results, saying that a new complaint has been filed with the Supreme Court.
The petition sought to overturn three earlier Pennsylvania Supreme Court decisions that relaxed election rules regarding signature verification, election day observation, and mail-in ballot filing. The Trump campaign claimed that these rulings in Pennsylvania were “unconstitutional”.
Trump lawyer Giuliani said it was the first time the campaign had filed an independent Supreme Court petition, “the petition seeks all appropriate ‘remedial measures’ including revoking the elector appointment that voted for Biden and allowing the Pennsylvania Legislature to choose a replacement.” He asked the Pennsylvania court to act quickly to rule before Congress certified the results of the electoral college vote on January 6.
The report said that this is another new attempt by the Trump team to challenge the election results. According to previous reports, on December 8th local time, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit about the results of the Pennsylvania general election count.
The lawsuit was initiated by Republican Congressman Mike Kelly, accusing Pennsylvania’s mail-in voting against the state’s constitution and demanding that more than 2.5 million mail-in votes be invalidated in the state.
Kelly believes that it was unconstitutional for Pennsylvania lawmakers to vote only in the state legislature when they decided to expand the scope of mail-in ballots last year without a constitutional amendment process.
The lawsuit was first dismissed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and then appealed to the Supreme Court of the United States.
According to U.S. media, at least 86 judges have dismissed the lawsuit since the Trump team and his supporters began to challenge the election results.
