Trump claims 'massive proof' of voter fraud in Pennsylvania and vows to appeal after judge threw out 'meritless' lawsuit

DONALD Trump claimed he has "massive proof" of voter fraud in Pennsylvania as he vowed to appeal after a judge threw out the "meritless" lawsuit.

The president took to Twitter again to decry the results of the 2020 race in key states on Saturday, after the election has been called for Joe Biden since November 7.

"The number of ballots that our Campaign is challenging in the Pennsylvania case is FAR LARGER than the 81,000 vote margin," he raged.

"It’s not even close. Fraud and illegality ARE a big part of the case. Documents being completed. We will appeal!

An hour earlier, Trump wrote: "Specific allegations were made, and we have massive proof, in the Pennsylvania case.

"Some people just don’t want to see it. They want nothing to do with saving our Country. Sad!!!"

His Twitter tirade came after a judge dismissed his campaign's bid to block Biden from being certified as winner of Pennsylvania's electoral votes. 

The federal appeals court had dismissed their suit and stated that "calling an election unfair does not make it so."

Trump's legal team have since vowed to appeal to the Supreme Court after the judge said the "campaign's claims have no merit."

Judge Stephanos Bibas wrote: "Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious.

"But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here,'

Chief Judge D. Brooks Smith and Judge Michael Chagares were appointed by Republican presidents, while former University of Pennsylvania law professor Bibas was appointed by Trump to the three-judge panel.

Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani also failed to provide concrete evidence of this widespread voter fraud in court in spite of Trump's Twitter tirade today.

US District Judge Matthew Brann described the Trump campaign's complaint to "Frankenstein's Monster" and said it had been "haphazardly stitched together" as he denied Giuliani's second bid to amend it.

The 3rd US Circuit Court of Appeals said this decision was justified on Friday and blasted any further revisions to it as "futile."

Trump's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry who retired in 2019 sat on the court for 20 years.

In the opinion, Bibas called Trump's bid to stop the PA certification as "breathtaking, noting that "voters, not lawyers, choose the president. Ballots, not briefs, decide elections."

Biden won Pennsylvania state's popular vote by more than 81,000 ballots and was certified as its winner on Tuesday.

The presidential candidate who wins the popular vote in-state garners all of PA's 20 electoral votes under Pennsylvania law.

Trump has yet to concede to his Democratic rival, claiming widespread fraud based on no solid evidence.

'"The 1,126,940 votes were created out of thin air," he wrote on Friday night.

"I won Pennsylvania by a lot, perhaps more than anyone will ever know. The Pennsylvania votes were RIGGED. All other swing states also. The world is watching!"
