(PoliticalLookout.com)- President Donald Trump’s legal team said on Saturday that the dismissal of their lawsuit by a federal judge meant that the case will be heading to the Supreme Court sooner, where the president and his team will be able to lay out their case that the state’s election results were impacted by fraudulent ballots.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and attorney Jenna Ellis released a statement describing how they intended to file an appeal with the Third Circuit court before it heads to the highest court in the land.
“Today’s decision turns out to help us in our strategy to get expeditiously to the U.S. Supreme Court,” they said. “Although we fully disagree with this opinion, we’re thankful to the Obama-appointed judge for making this anticipated decision quickly, rather than simply trying to run out the clock.”
The lawsuit that was dismissed by the judge argued that the “equal protection under the law” guarantee to American voters was violated in Pennsylvania owing to several Democrat-run counties treating voters differently. The suit argued that Republican observers were not able to see hundreds of thousands of ballots being cast and that in some counties, people who made errors on their paper were given an easier opportunity to “cure” their ballot than voters in Republican neighborhoods.
United States Middle District Judge Matthew Brann dismissed the suit, disregarding the concerns of many Americans who have signed sworn affidavits that they saw wrongdoing. Brann said that the Trump campaign was trying to “disenfranchise almost seven million voters.”

If this goes to the Supreme Court, conservative judges who interpret the Constitution in the way it was written, will have an opportunity to determine whether there was wrongdoing in the Pennsylvania election.
