Judge calls Trump claim challenging Biden win in Pennsylvania 'Frankenstein's monster'

Share

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was projected the victor in Pennsylvania by about 80,000 votes. He said he will especially extend cooperation in areas where he agrees, for example, "continuing our efforts to combat COVID-19, breaking down barriers to expanding trade, supporting the men and women of our armed forces, and keeping guns out of the hands of violent criminals and the dangerously mentally ill". Toomey's remarks followed a Pennsylvania federal judge who threw out the Trump campaign's effort to discard Pennsylvania's election. "It was a fair and square election, Donald Trump lost", he said.

Senator Mitt Romney of Utah issued the strongest rebuke, saying that by pressuring state and local officials to subvert the will of the people and overturn the election, "it is hard to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting president".

The Biden and Trump campaigns additionally didn't instantly reply to queries. "This is another case that appears to be moving quickly to the United States Supreme Court", they added.

Counties must certify their results to Ms Boockvar by Monday, after which she will make her own certification.

Biden is due to take office on January 20.

Trump's campaign said on Sunday that it was appealing Brann's decision to the US 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals. After the meeting, they said they saw no evidence that would prompt them to intervene.

Elections officials in multiple states as well as judges have said there was no widespread fraud in the 2020 election. A majority of that circuit's judges were nominated by Republican presidents. The letter cited allegations of "irregularities" that have not been substantiated. Van Langevelde, an attorney and former assistant prosecutor in Branch County, works for state House Republicans, whose leader, Speaker Lee Chatfield flew to Washington, D.C., on Friday with a handful of other GOP lawmakers to meet at the White House with Trump.

For instance in Arizona, which was called for the Democrat ticket on Election Night, Biden's lead has diminished to less than 11,000 votes. This undermines public confidence in our election results without evidence and court rulings to support the allegations.

"Joe Biden won the 2020 election and will become the 46th President of the United States", said Toomey, who has announced he will not run for re-election in 2022.

The little bird, whom rescuers named Rockefeller, was discovered by a worker on Monday, Nov. 16, the report said. The Rockefeller Christmas tree: what was supposed to be a symbol of hope for NY still needs a few more touches.

During the campaign, Biden severely criticised Trump's go-it-alone foreign policy and pledged to recommit to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and other global pacts, while promising to draw on experts to fight the COVID crisis and other problems at home.

"Observers are disruptive. They are asking question after question, telling the tabulators to stop, stop what they're doing and that is out of line, that's not acceptable", Milwaukee County Clerk George Christianson told reporters.

On Saturday, Trump's campaign requested a recount of votes in Georgia, a day after state officials certified results showing Biden beat Trump by 12,670 votes out of about 5 million cast, or 0.25%. The Democratic campaign has issued a scathing statement in response to the latest Trump loss, saying that it further proves that his accusations are baseless.

But Mr Trump's accusations have continued to inflame his hard-core Republican base.

Georgia's Republican Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, has reiterated confidence in the results.

Police in riot gear were deployed to separate them from counter protesters who gathered nearby.

Critics have said Trump's refusal to facilitate an orderly transition carries serious implications for national security and the fight against COVID-19.

Trump took part in a virtual summit of the 20 biggest world economies and then went to play golf at his club in Sterling, Virginia.
