BREAKING: Trump Loses Again, Pennsylvania Edition (Sat 7PM EST)

A federal judge on Saturday dismissed a Trump campaign lawsuit that accused Pennsylvania officials of enabling voter fraud, opening the way for the state to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory and dealing a blow to the president’s narrowing legal options.

U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann said the Trump campaign had used the lawsuit to attempt to discard legally cast votes, rejecting arguments made by President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, that Pennsylvania’s mail-in ballot procedures presented the opportunity for widespread voter fraud.

In his ruling, Judge Brann concluded the lawsuit was marred by “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations…unsupported by evidence.”

“In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state,” wrote Judge Brann, an Obama appointee [bold]who has been a member of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group....

The judge dismissed the case "with prejudice" -- they can't refile.

He was not happy.

Brad Heath (Reuters):

The court seems puzzled that Trump wants to invalidate the presidential race, but uphold other races on the same ballot. "Even if it were logically possible to hold PA's electoral system both constitutional and unconstitutional at the same time, the Court would not do so."

Brad Heath (Reuters):

Judge: "Even assuming that they can establish that their right to vote has been denied, which they cannot, Plaintiffs seek to remedy the denial of their votes by invalidating the votes of millions of others. ... This is simply not how the constitution works."

He's spent the last hour on Twitter claiming that the newest PA lawsuit is not "frivolous" (he is reacting to someone calling it that) and now he's calling out Liz Cheney for asking him to provide evidence of fraud.

I never knew it was possible for me to dislike someone as much as I dislike Donald Trump. Everyone should watch Trump: The American Dream on Netflix. It shows how Trump's behavior has repeated itself over and over. He is the ultimate con man, the ultimate shyster.
