President Donald Trump carries on the fight to overturn the election results, according to News Max.
The President’s legal team filed a new petition with the Supreme Court requesting to reverse a trio of decisions that would ease the state’s election rules related to signature verification, Election Day observation, and mail-in ballot declarations.
“Collectively, these three decisions resulted in counting approximately 2.6 million mail ballots in violation of the law as enacted by the Pennsylvania Legislature,” Trump’s attorney John Eastman said.
Trump’s campaign team is requesting that the statutory deadline for receipt of mail ballots be extended from 8 p.m. on Election Day to 5 p.m. three days later claiming it is a “national importance” and may violate the U.S. Constitution.
“The petition seeks all appropriate remedies, including vacating the appointment of electors committed to Joseph Biden and allowing the Pennsylvania General Assembly to select their replacements,” Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said.
From News Max:
Electors in all 50 states and the District of Columbia last week cast ballots formalizing Joe Biden’s win over Trump.
The challenge follows a similar lawsuit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton which the justices refused to hear earlier this month.
