President Donald Trump has refused to concede the recent presidential election despite mainstream media proclamations that the winner was Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
With Trump’s re-election campaign continuing its challenges of certain statewide races in court and elsewhere, his legal team notched victories on Monday in both Pennsylvania and Michigan, as reported by Just the News.
“Emergency expedited review”
The Third Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to take up a case out of Pennsylvania while the Michigan state legislature announced it would hold a public hearing on reports of election irregularities in that state.
As for the first announcement, Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis celebrated the court’s decision to grant an “emergency expedited review” of a Pennsylvania lawsuit that had been dismissed by a federal district judge just days earlier.
The campaign faced a deadline of Monday afternoon to file a brief and the court advised that it would notify attorneys if it desired to hear oral arguments on the matter.
The case sought to delay certification of the state’s election results, potentially removing hundreds of thousands of ballots that were allegedly cast illegally.
Trump’s team maintains certain counties enacted changes to election laws that had not been authorized by state lawmakers and violated the equal protection clause of the Constitution since GOP-leaning counties had not applied the same rules.
“Every American should want to know the truth”
“We are grateful to the Third Circuit for accepting an expedited review,” Ellis told Just the News. “There was no legal reason to deny our amended complaint, other than pure politics and judicial activism.”
In Michigan, Ellis claimed that a GOP-led state legislature had agreed to hold a hearing on the issue of election irregularities — possibly as soon as Wednesday.
“We are grateful to Michigan House lawmakers for not rushing to certify inaccurate election results,” she said. “We are confident they will share the same concerns once they see the extent of the outright fraud and disregard for the law that happened in Michigan and across the nation. Every American should want to know the truth.”
Meanwhile, in Michigan, Just the News reported that Ellis claimed the Republican-led state legislature had agreed to hold a hearing on the issue of election irregularities, perhaps as soon as Wednesday.
In a statement on Tuesday, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani declared: “It’s in everyone’s interest to have a full vetting of election irregularities and fraud. And the only way to do this is with public hearings, complete with witnesses, videos, pictures, and other evidence of illegalities from the November 3rd election.”
