President Donald Trump’s campaign signaled it will challenge a federal appeals court ruling over Pennsylvania’s election results in the Supreme Court.
“The activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania continues to cover up the allegations of massive fraud. We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to present proof and the facts to the PA state legislature. On to SCOTUS!” Trump’s attorney and campaign adviser Jenna Ellis wrote on Twitter.

The activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania continues to cover up the allegations of massive fraud.
We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to present proof and the facts to the PA state legislature.
On to SCOTUS!
“Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so,” Judge Stephanos Bibas wrote in his ruling.
He added, “Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.”
Pennsylvania certified its results Tuesday, as IJR previously reported.
“Today [Pennsylvania State Department] certified the results of the November 3 election in Pennsylvania for president and vice president of the United States. As required by federal law, I’ve signed the Certificate of Ascertainment for the slate of electors for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris,” Governor Tom Wolf wrote on Twitter.
States including Georgia and Michigan have also certified their results.
The Trump campaign vowed to move forward with legal challenges even after Michigan certified its results.
“Certification by state officials is simply a procedural step,” Ellis said in a statement.
She went on, “We are going to continue combatting election fraud around the country as we fight to count all the legal votes. Americans must be assured that the final results are fair and legitimate.”
Trump called into a Pennsylvania hearing Wednesday to claim there is no way he “didn’t win Pennsylvania because the energy industry was all for him.”
The president tweeted Friday Biden has to prove the 80 million votes he won were not “fraudulently or illegally obtained” in order to move into the White House.
