Trump Files Case in Supreme Court Challenging Pennsylvania Election Rulings [Overview and Full Text]

The Trump campaign filed a case before the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) Sunday challenging three election rulings by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

The case challenges election process changes made by Pennsylvania election officials that the campaign feels were unconstitutional and they believe their claims were affirmed in the 2000 Bush v. Gore decision.

Article II of the Constitution provides that “Each State shall appoint [electors for President and Vice President] in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct.” U.S. Const. art. II, § 1, cl. 2 (emphasis added). That power is “plenary,” and the statutory provisions enacted by the legislature in the furtherance of that constitutionally-assigned duty may not be ignored by state election officials or changed by state courts. Bush v. Gore (“Bush II”), 531 U.S. 98, 104-05 (2000).

Yet, during the 2020 presidential election, that is what the Pennsylvania
Supreme Court did in four cases – three at issue in this Petition, and one already before the Court. Statutory requirements were eliminated regarding signature verification, the right of campaigns to challenge invalid mail ballots, mandates that mail voters fill in, date, and sign mail ballot declarations, and even the right of campaigns to observe the mail ballot canvassing process in a meaningful way.

The SCOTUS filing asserts that the decisions results in the counting of about 2.6 million mail-in ballots that should not have been counted and that enough of them would normally have been disqualified to affect the outcome of the election.

  1. I recently watched a documentary called, “The Kingmaker” about Imelda Marcos in the Philippine Islands. A clone of the U.S. 2020 election. Imelda returned to the Philippines, got into politics and pushed her son, Bongbong, to run for President……paying poor people for their votes, stuffing the ballot boxes and more. Sound familiar? Imelda may be related to Hillary.

  2. It amazes me that SCOTUS being a “co-equal” branch of the Federal Gov is sitting on their butts failing to do their part of Checks and Balances. Regardless of what is currently before them, they have the Constitutional Authority to step in at anytime to ensure the Executive and Legislative Branch is not usurping the powers afforded to each Branch. There is certainly enough evidence that something about the 2020 election is in question. SCOTUS should be demanding to see and hear the evidence from the Executive and Legislative Branches to insure the people they are doing their part to uphold the Constitution of the US.
