Giuliani attended the meeting of the Pennsylvania Senate Majority Policy Committee during which Trump appeared via speakerphone and made further unsubstantiated claims about voter fraud.Ridge, who served as governor for Pennsylvania from 1995 to 2001, referred in a tweet to the significance of the meeting taking place at the Wyndham Gettysburg Hotel, located about a mile from the scene of Pickett's Charge, where Union troops repelled a Confederate attack in July 1863.
"History will record the shameful irony that a president who lied to avoid military service staged a bogus event on the hallowed grounds of Gettysburg in a brazen attempt to undermine the Republic for which scores of real patriots had fought & died to preserve since its founding," he tweeted."

— Gov. Tom Ridge (@GovRidge)November 25, 2020By Thursday morning, Ridge's message was liked more than 90,000 times, and retweeted more than 16,000 times, prompting a thread in which many expressed their support.It is not the first time that Ridge has been critical of the Trump team's election dispute. Earlier this month, he described attempts to stop votes being counted as"un-American," accusing the president of trying"to disenfranchise not only millions of Pennsylvanians, but millions of voters in Michigan and Wisconsin and Nevada and elsewhere."
Trump's repeated legal attempts to overturn the election have been rejected by state and federal judges. The Trump team's request for Pennsylvania lawmakers to change the way its presidential electors are chosen or consider calling a special election are likely to fail too, Penn Live reported.
Jason Gottesman, spokesman for the House Republican majority told the news outlet that House GOP leaders do not intend to call House members back before the November 30 end of the 2019-20 legislative session."We have been clear from the beginning: the General Assembly has no role to play in the selection of electors," he said.

So called patriots worshiping Trumps. Ridge had education deferment but enlisted in Vietnam anyway and won Bronze star. Trump took 4 education deferments and had med deferment for ankle spurs...WTF? What if the real villains want you to think President Trump is the villain? KatiePavlich kimguilfoyle seanhannity DineshDSouza Well he is treasonous and we all know it, he is now dismantling the U-2 programme, so we won't know what the Russians are doing
Joshua Chamberlain, BGen 20th Maine, a decorated Gettysburg hero, agrees! Impeached draft dodgers not allowed. arrest Joe Did Newsweek provide an unbiased reporting of the hearing at Gettysburg Gettysburg ? Ironic. Racist chicken hawk Donald Trump would never do the 'Pickett's Charge' across that open Gettysburg field unless it was in a golf cart as part of the exclusive club's back nine holes.
everything is undermining the constitution, undermining democracy, undermining the republic. The fact that he is doing something and you are doing nothing annoys you LOOK THE OTHER WAY YOU DAMN PEASANTS! (my interpretation) I remember a time where challenges and political discourse were welcomed. Today it’s all “BEND THE KNEE OR ELSE”.
