President Trump’s legal team on Sunday filed an appeal to a federal judge’s ruling that struck down his campaign’s effort to block the certification of votes in Pennsylvania.
The appeal, which was filed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, comes just a day after U.S. Middle District Judge Matthew Brann in Williamsport, Pa., rejected a request by the Trump 2020 Campaign for an injunction that would stop the certification of the election, as the campaign seeks to overturn results is swing states across the country.
Hey All. In my 30 years as a federal prosecutor I don’t think I ever saw a case dismissed “WITH PREJUDICE.” A federal judge just dismissed Trump’s challenge of the Pennsylvania election results WITH PREJUDICE. Translation: “Go away and don’t come back!” https://t.co/gCT2Tt7ppZ

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA): “President Trump has exhausted all plausible legal options to challenge the result of the presidential race in Pennsylvania. … I congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their victory.”
