Supreme Court Denies Trump's Attempt to Override Pennsylvania Election


The US president's team sought to truncate Joe Biden's victory in that state.

Donald Trump, president of the United States, insists on saying that the elections were rigged.

The US Supreme Court inflicted a setback on President Donald Trump on Tuesday by refusing to accept an appeal by his allies to block the certification of electoral results in Pennsylvania, the key to the triumph of Democrat Joe Biden.

More than a month after the November 3 elections, the Republican president still refuses to acknowledge his defeat against Biden, declaring himself the victim of "massive fraud" without presenting convincing evidence.

With the help of his allies, he has filed lawsuits in several states crucial to the outcome of the electoral contest, but almost all have already been thrown out by the courts.

One of these lawsuits, brought by Republican Congressman Mike Kelly, challenged the legality of vote-by-mail in Pennsylvania.

Following their rejection by the state Supreme Court, the plaintiffs urgently went to the United States Supreme Court to ask it to halt all electoral processes while presenting their arguments.

By refusing to admit them, the nine judges of the Court put an end to this procedure and imply that they do not intend to get involved in post-election disputes. Trump, however, expected the highest court, which he profoundly reorganized during his administration, would intervene on his behalf.

The day after the elections, he had said that he would take his claims before the Supreme Court. In 2000, the Supreme Court interrupted a recount of votes in Florida, where George W. Bush carried only 537 votes to Democrat Al Gore, allowing the Republican to win the election.

Texas, governed by the Republicans, presented another appeal to the highest court in the country on Tuesday to seek the invalidation of the electoral results in four key states, but according to experts, it has no chance of prospering.
