“Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy,” Judge Stephanos Bibas, a Trump appointee, wrote on behalf of the appeals court. “Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.”
“Moments after the three-judge panel from the Third Circuit ruled, Jenna Ellis, one of Mr. Trump’s lawyers, wrote on Twitter that she and Rudolph W. Giuliani, who is leading the post-election legal effort, planned to appeal to the United States Supreme Court. In her Twitter post, Ms. Ellis accused “the activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania” of covering up “allegations of massive fraud” despite the fact that all three judges on the panel were appointed by Republicans.”
“Activist judicial machinery”? 3 Republican appointees, including one by Trump himself, are now activists?
Of course the idea is to get to SCOTUS with its ideologically packed bench. Yet it seems that there is a good indication that SCOTUS will stay out of this fray. This is not at all the same as 2000 and the Florida recount which was looking for a few hundred votes while counters were assailed by a violent mob of Republican operatives.
Trump continues, of course, to try to undermine our country as well as any foreign adversary, better really. He is acting like a “mole” for those who would love to see us collapse in chaos. He is aiding and abetting our enemies, and his supporters are aiding and abetting Trump.
I believe that Trump is more concerned with Biden taking “credit” for the vaccine than he is about the safety and security of our citizens during the most serious crisis we have faced since WW2.
Disgusting, but expected.
