Donald Trump contests election results in Wisconsin again.
The US president is sticking to the allegation of election fraud. His team goes to the Supreme Court to overturn a Wisconsin Supreme Court decision.
The lawyers of US President Donald Trump are trying again – this time before the US Supreme Court – to challenge the result of the presidential election in the state of Wisconsin. Trump’s campaign team has filed an application with the Supreme Court in Washington to overturn a decision by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, a statement said. In Wisconsin, election winner Joe Biden won in November by around 21,000 votes.
A majority of the judges in Wisconsin refused to hear a lawsuit in early December. Trump’s lawyers wanted to achieve, among other things, that more than 220,000 ballots sent by post are not included in the count. It covers the Dane and Milwaukee counties – regions with the strongest backing for the Wisconsin Democrats. If the lawsuit – as requested by the Trump camp – is heard, it would turn the outcome in Wisconsin, claimed Trump’s attorney Jim Troupis.
A victory for Trump in Wisconsin would not change the outcome of the election. The Democrat Joe Biden won the election by a wide margin. Up until now, Trump has not conceded his thrashing and claims that he was deprived of victory through massive fraud. Neither Trump nor his lawyers provided evidence to support these claims. In excess of 50 claims from the Trump, the camp has been excused by the courts, including the Supreme Court.
