Judge Orders Trump Campaign To Provide Evidence Of Mail-In Voting Fraud In PA
According to Forbes, a federal judge in Pennsylvania has ordered the Trump campaign to provide evidence of mail-in voter fraud by Friday “to substantiate claims it made in a lawsuit in the key battleground state that echo President Trump's many unfounded attacks against the integrity of mail-in voting ahead of the November presidential election.”
- District Judge J. Nicholas Ranjan, one of the more than 200 federal judges Trump has appointed in his first term, said: "The Court finds that instances of voter fraud are relevant to the claims and defenses in this case.”
- Forbes reported that in June, “the Trump campaign sued 67 county election boards in the state, as well as Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, claiming they ‘have inexplicably chosen a path that jeopardizes election security,’ according to CBS Pittsburgh.”
- Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf (D) signed legislation into law last year that allows no-excuse mail-in voting.
- The publication noted that “Democrats say Trump showed his hand Thursday when he admitted during a Fox Business interview he's holding up a stimulus deal because of demands to provide funding for the USPS and mail-in voting.”
