The Trump campaign legal team responded to a recent loss in a Pennsylvania court with optimism, saying that the negative ruling actually aids the campaign’s legal strategy.
A federal judge in Pennsylvania threw out a Trump campaign election lawsuit on Saturday, citing a lack of evidence to back up the campaign’s claims of potential voter fraud and misconduct. The Trump campaign filed the lawsuit to keep the state from certifying its election results and officially rewarding Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and Trump campaign senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis issued a response to the ruling later on Saturday.
“Today’s decision turns out to help us in our strategy to get expeditiously to the U.S. Supreme Court. Although we fully disagree with this opinion, we’re thankful to the Obama-appointed judge for making this anticipated decision quickly, rather than simply trying to run out the clock,” the attorneys said in
