What is the big deal with Bucks County, Pennsylvania? Donald Trump believes that the county directly north of Philadelphia has thousands of votes that should have gone to him. Either that, or this is one of his delaying tacts. Thus far, Trump’s reelection campaign attorneys have papered the swing states with lawsuits, but they have only won a handful out of 31 suits.
Trump’s reelection campaign attorneys went after the Bucks County’s votes last week in court. Then, on Wednesday they signed court documents saying that there was “no evidence of fraud or misconduct pertaining to those ballots,” according to The Law & Crime.
The Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee (RNC), and two GOP candidates running for state office filed a lawsuit last week. It. was to invalidate over 2,200 “defective ballots” counted after a Board of Elections review.
Attorney to the Biden campaign attorney and the Democratic Party’s “top election” attorney Marc Elias said they signed the document relieving Pennsylvania’s fourth-largest county of any “fraudulent activity” via a joint stipulation of facts.
When courts use a “joint stipulation of facts,” this is a tool meant to give the court relevant and undisputed facts by either party. That means all claims indicating there was “fraudulent conduct” were disavowed.
Elias has filed to intervene in nearly all of the Trump campaign lawsuits challenging voting tabulations.
The joint stipulation read:
‘Petitioners do not allege, and there is no evidence of, any fraud in connection with the challenged ballots.’
The stipulation further indicated that “the campaign was not alleging:”
‘[There was no evidence of any] “misconduct,” “impropriety,” “undue influence,” associated with the legal challenge, nor was there evidence that the Board of Elections “counted ballots without signatures on the outer envelope.”‘
Both parties agreed that the bipartisan election observers were, indeed, given access to the pre-canvassing and canvassing opportunities.
Trump has repeatedly and falsely proclaimed that he only lost to President-elect Joe Biden, because the election was corrupted with fraudulent ballots. Unfortunately for the president, his campaign attorneys cannot make that lie in court. It would be a crime. Trump still bellowed:
‘I won Pennsylvania. By a lot!’
Voting rights attorney Elias tweeted pointing to “no fraud:”
‘In Bucks County, PA litigation, Trump campaign agrees to joint stipulation saying no fraud.’
This was not the first time the president’s reelection campaign attorneys had to:
‘[Disavow] voter-fraud allegations before judges in three separate jurisdictions: two state courts in Pennsylvania and one county court in Arizona.’
Trump’s personal attorney and personal fixer Rudy Giuliani went back to court after 28 years away from the bench. He was filled with the president’s vitriolic claims of fraud:
The former mayor of New York City made the claim in court that 1.5 million Pennsylvania ballots were illegally counted. However, he could not tell the federal judge how he came up with that specific number. Later, Giuliani admitted:
‘This is not a fraud case.’
In addition to the fraudulent votes, Giulianne alleged that the president’s Republican observers were kept too far away from the counting process. At the same time in a parallel case, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled in favor of Biden, because:
‘[A Philadelphia election observer] was not entitled to stand within a particular distance from employees who were processing mail-in ballots, overturning a lower court’s ruling on the matter.’
