New legal defeat for Trump in his battle against presidential results

Steph Deschamps / November 22, 2020

 

A judge in the US state of Pennsylvania on Saturday strongly rejected allegations of electoral fraud made by outgoing President Donald Trump, who still denies his defeat in the presidential election.

 

The decision of this magistrate - whose judgment is scathing - paves the way for the certification of the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in Pennsylvania, which is due to happen on Monday.

 

As time is running out for Biden's nomination on Jan.20, Trump's team has worked to prevent the most disputed states from formalizing the poll results, in addition to his numerous legal actions that have so far failed

 

The certification of results by states is normally done routinely after each presidential election. But Trump's refusal to admit defeat complicates the process.

 

Judge Matthew Brann wrote in his judgment that the Trump team presented "baseless legal arguments and hypothetical charges" in its complaint about postal voting in Pennsylvania.

 

In the United States of America, this cannot justify the deprivation of the right to vote of a single voter, and even less of all the voters of the sixth most populous state in the country, writes the magistrate, adding: Our people, our laws and our institutions require more than that.
