Democratic lawyer Marc E. Elias posted documents showing that President Donald Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, filed an appeal after a humiliating loss last week.
Giuliani has argued of voter fraud for hundreds of thousands of votes because Trump campaign staff weren’t able to watch the ballots being opened. While there were Republicans and Democrats present for the count, Giuliani has argued that Trump’s campaign team should also be present. It was a demand that the campaign didn’t work out ahead of the election, only after Biden won Pennsylvania.
U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann presided over the case, issuing an opinion that ultimately humiliated the former New York City mayor.
“Can you tell me how this result could possibly be justified?” Brann questioned.
Giuliani responded, “the scope of the remedy is because of the scope of the injury.”
“In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state. Our people, laws, and institutions demand more,” Judge Brann ultimately ruled. “At bottom, Plaintiffs have failed to meet their burden to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. Therefore, I grant Defendants’ motions and dismiss Plaintiffs’ action with prejudice.”

Utah Republican accuses Dems of ‘cheating’ in Georgia Senate runoffs — but his hometown paper doesn’t buy it
A Utah Republican is facing backlash after accusing Democrats of “cheating” in the two January runoff elections in Georgia that will determine control of the United States Senate.
The Peach State will be holding two runoff elections on January 5th. There is a special election, with interim Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) being challenged by the Rev. Raphael Warnock. In the other race, Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) is being challenged by Democrat Jon Ossoff.
In a fundraising appeal posted to social media, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) accused Democrats of cheating in the race. But his hometown newspaper, The Salt Lake Tribune, noted there was no evidence to support his accusations.
Trump legal team mocked after attacking Trump-appointed judge for being part of the ‘activist judicial machinery’ in Pennsylvania
Jenna Ellis, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney and the Senior Legal Adviser to the Trump campaign is once again being mocked, this time for her near-immediate response to a unanimous 3-0 ruling against the campaign in a Pennsylvania election case.
Ellis says she and Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, have decided that the three judges, who were all appointed by Republican presidents – including the one who wrote the opinion who was appointed by Trump himself – are all part of the “activist judicial machinery” in Pennsylvania.
