Opinion | Democrats should want Biden to pardon Trump. Here's why. President-Elect Biden To Begin Formal Transition Process After Agency OK NYC's first African-American mayor, David Dinkins, has died

Pete Marovich / Getty Images fileNov. 22, 2020, 12:23 AM UTCByPete WilliamsWASHINGTON — A federal judge on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump's campaign in Pennsylvania, saying it contained"strained legal argument without merit."

U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann turned down the request for an injunction, dealing another blow to Trump's hopes of invalidating the election's results.In his 37-page ruling, Brann said the Trump campaign asked him to “disenfranchise almost seven million voters” and said he could not find any case in which a plaintiff “has sought such a drastic remedy in the contest of an election.”

With such a request, the judge said, one might expect compelling legal argument “and factual proof of rampant corruption.” Instead, Brann added, “this court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations.”“In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state," Brann wrote in his opinion.

The lawsuit claimed that some counties allowed mail-in voters to cure problems with the ballots by casting a provisional ballots, but some counties did not, which violated the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection.But even if that were the basis for seeking some kind of order, Brann said, the remedy sought by the Trump campaign goes too far.

“Rather than requesting that their votes be counted, they seek to discredit scores of other votes, but only for one race," the judge wrote."This is simply not how the Constitution works.”Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, a Democrat, tweeted shortly after Brann's ruling, saying “Another one bites the dust.”

NASA Updates TV Coverage for First Commercial Crew Rotation Flight

NASA and SpaceX are now targeting 7:27 p.m. EST Sunday, Nov. 15, for liftoff of the agency’s SpaceX Crew-1 mission from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida with astronauts to the International Space Station.

Haha that's literally like a joke right because I could swear I saw your loser sides whining for a whole 4 straight years but it's ok because you will get to learn how to really deal with being a double loser again because Trump is getting another 4 years. It won't matter when it goes to the Supreme court and guess who is in the Supreme court in those states. 😘😘😘 Trump will be President again the MSM can lie to y'all all they want like they have for 4 straight years and once again you will be disappointed.

The disenfranchisement has come from the fake news and dems for 4 years. Just like with the virus they will seek to blame it all on Trump. For one minute if they owned their own bullshit i would have 1 minute to listen to them.. Why do they have to keep putting trump's picture on any kind of social media? He makes me sick every time I see him.

Morning_Joe Dumbest man on the planet. Trump needs to be in a mental institution and forced today out of presidency and thrown in the jail for what he is doing committing the biggest crime in history and the Republicans that stand behind him need to go to jail as well clean up the White House. Of so they have dead people voting for Joe

Speaking of accounting, Trump has used the office for non stop campaigning. Personally, I would like to see my taxes go to better use. Relief is needed for millions of Americans. Senators stop pander this loser. Do your job. If Trump’s antics aren’t a Constitutional Crisis, what is? Forget about Trump’s tantrum about not accepting the election, he is hurting the country and assaulting our democracy. It is time to remove him from office! What is the Senate waiting for? When is enough, enough?

I wonder how much the Biden people paid to have the case dismissed realDonaldTrump the part of me who does not despise this man, actually feels sorry for him. Never to experience true life. A sheltered from reality boy, taught to fight and throw tantrums to win, all at the cost of other human beings. Just to earn love and respect. How sad.

What a Loser. 😁😁😁 Dictum.. he rejected it because he said they didn't file it in a timely manner. Trump is wasting the judges time throwing out his false complaints is time to throw him out the White House waiting to January 20th too long go in get him now remove him and get on with this people out here dying 4 reasons of ones who's allowing us to die should pay be gone

Another win for Biden. Yo this dude is giving Biden victories for free lmao Tom_Winter 10 State government elected officials supporting mail in voting before election and then trying to keep mail in votes from being counted after election denies Republican form of government. Tom_Winter 9 Judges on US Supreme Court should stop being enemies of Constitution. Article 4, Section 4 of Constitution guarantees every State a Republican form of government. Poll taxes deny Republican form of government. Gerrymandering denies Republican form of government.

Tom_Winter 8 Declaration of Independence - people denied benefits of trial by jury. Binding arbitration agreements have never been constitutional where the value in controversy is at least $20 because of Amendment 7. Tom_Winter 7 Roman empire destroyed value of its money over time. Constitution gives Congress power to coin money, regulate value of money. It is not Constitutional for the President to choose members of Federal Reserve. Congress should have final say over decisions of Federal Reserve.

Donald Trump invented fake news realDonaldTrump Tom_Winter 5 Constitution was ratified so protected by ex post facto clause. George Washington should have been put in prison for taking foreign emoluments without permission of Congress. Tom_Winter 4 Constitution bans President from taking domestic emoluments from state governments, people, businesses. Alexander Hamilton in Federalist 73 discussed harm from President taking bribes. George Washington could take domestic emoluments because his businesses existed before

Tom_Winter 3 President does not have power to pardon offences against state governments and offences against the law of nations. Congress may use offences against law of nations to punish sitting President and former Presidents. Tom_Winter 2. Nothing in Constitution protects a sitting President from being prosecuted and being put in prison by a state government. If a sitting President raped and murdered a teenager, state government could prosecute and put in prison the sitting President.

Tom_Winter 1. If a state government puts a sitting President of United States in prison, sitting President would remain President if sitting President has not been removed as President by Congress or Amendment 25. In the Washington Post, Paul Waldman put it starkly. 'No president in American history has ever before spent the end of his time in office trying to discredit our democracy, degrade the federal government and set Americans against each other,'

No one asked for the disenfrachisement of any voters. They ask for the removal of illegal votes. NOTICE HOW CUOMO ACTS LIKE TRUMP. THIS FLIP ON AND AGAINST EVERYTHING HAS TO STOP Chinas plandemic to cripple worldwide economies & force a reset where they have power means getting Trump out. nbcNews you are helping them! Lamestream has been lying to us for years. So much corruption worldwide to make this happen. Say no to slavery worldwide!

Morning_Joe I am insulted and should file a class action suit against him for disenfranchising my rights and ability to make an intelligent decision to vote my heart and that I made the right choice...Biden & Harris. I'm embarrassed for the U.S. as the world watches. Fast tracking to the Supreme Court.

Morning_Joe I think DONALD TRUMP just can NOT get over getting “bookended by Biden” .... bookendedByBiden Every thing with Donald Trump revolves around the courts. He has been in and out of courts all of his adult life trying tactics that don't work but he still goes on and on. At some point in his life he will have to come to the conclusion that the TRUTH WILL SET HIM FREE.

He know nothing or cares nothing about the constitution Can someone outline the proposed path Trump wants to make to the Supreme Court? Time for Republicans to stand by the country and constitution not by a madman. 'Trump's refusal thus far to facilitate a smooth transition weakens democratic values. It is shocking... (like) undemocratic states such as Kenya, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe” - Mary Robinson, former Irish President, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, current Chair of The Elders.

Trump save the country with the vaccine The man is bat shit crazy and the people following him are just as bad. Except for those voters who vote outside of the state's laws Glad it was thrown out Surprise surprise. NBC IS FAKE NEWS! Obviously the Judge is being paid off. Even Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder ca see that. DUH!!

Democrats STOLE by altering voting machines. NOT a conspiracy theory but a FACT!! Communist News Networks reporting the same biased NERRATIVE LIES. Just bcuz you report it! Doesn’t make it TRUE 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 We will soon see the Glory of the Lord he will uncover every Lie and deception will be uncovered.

Great! Now on to the circuit courts... Where most judges were appointed by whom PA is going to the US Supreme Court and will be tossed out as the legislature makes the rules for the elections not the courts. The PA Supreme Court overstepped there bounds. Morning_Joe Bravo...for this Federal Judge....Bravo....

I think you may wanna disappear, Russia maybe 🤔 What does Trump have to gain by dragging this out? Why the delay? He knows he lost!!!! In related news greggutfeld Trumps demand for a recount was refused his urologist ........ 'disenfranchise almost seven million voters” and said he could not find any case in which a plaintiff “has sought such a drastic remedy in the contest of an election.” We've never seen election fraud on this scale. It isn't over. Would love to know why media is in such a hurry.

Time for the 25th amendment. Play time over, Enough is enough It doesn't matter what the courts say, Trump will not leave the WH. That bloated, illiterate, racist, monkey 🐒 ,and his family will have to be dragged out of the WH by force. Where is Osama bin Laden, when America really needs him. : Federal judge dismisses Trump campaign lawsuit in Pennsylvania. “In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its 6th most populated state,' the judge wrote.

Notice how the Democrats fight back late at night...? Hm kinda like when the fake ballots arrived... No, it is certainly not how the Constitution works at all!! These back stabbing judges have a higher court than theirs. Gods Judgement n cometh soon!! No matter how far they run. You can't escape the mighty hand of the Lord thy God!!

lotsofuss And the Republicans say “since when”? We’ve been cheating, gerrymandering and disenfranchising for years. What changed? Fake news! Hope yall are getting paid well because all of you are committing a disservice to America. As Robert Kiyokasi would say,they are not lying they are only not telling the truth.

He doesn’t care how the Constitution works. He’d wipe his ass with it if it suited him on a particular day. Lost 30 of 32 election lawsuits... Is tRump going to use the same lawyers to keep him from going to jail...? Dismissed with prejudice💖 UNreleasethekraken But history will show that president Trump was a great president for the people who was voted in by the majority of the people and was cheated out of a 2nd term by unscrupulous overzealous radical democrat socialists

realDonaldTrump don’t be a sore loser ... all good things do come to an end and so your presidency☮️ I think DonaldTrump failed Civics Class in school. Blah blah blah wait for the higher courts. Everyone expected this seeing obama appointed these lower courts judges Please watch then hit 'Subscribe' to keep the real news coming out in America!

A bully and a dictator suffering micro-penis syndrome realDonaldTrump BYE realDonaldTrump RudyGiuliani JennaEllisEsq GOP TeamTrump TrumpWarRoom FYI Well I’ll be damned Trump will still serve his second term. You will start seeing some big names getting arrested for treason. The radical left has stuck their necks out a little too far this time.

have paid people to swear fake affidavits, not even one case of fraud conspiracy has any evidence; stating a few votes by dead people as an example of fraud, but who were not dead. and on and on..... these suits are where the corruption is. Should be penalty for false claims You done now. realDonaldTrump lol 😂😂 you'll be tried for Treason soon save your money for your attorney. Bye . IvankaTrump come get your Daddy he's embarrassed himself for the last time.

Donot worry Trump you still have a chance silly fuck learn how to count you R done ✔️ Hey Trump, This is how the legal process works NBC/MSNBC it's supposed to be A-Political and the reality is that would allow GA to destroy the ballots like Hillary's Phones and Acid Wash scrubbing. How short is your collective memory?

Morning_Joe “ We won CA too! That might be enough! Pelosi buried millions of votes. Trillons! Independence of the courts; checks and balances are only a word on paper I hate him so much. ByeDon Dirty globalist media...dirty mafia Pennsylvania Legislators are suppose to rule, not an Obama appointed Judge from what I’m hearing. There was plenty of evidence of voter fraud and the judge dismisses it. Our Country is in deep shit. I saw some of the evidence. It’s scary the people behind this scam.

Waste of orange skin. Waste of Oxygen. He is a killer and he continues to kill people every day. WTF? That would be like, if this POS started shooting up a mall and err body just threw their hands up and said 'he's the POS, nuttin we can do.' So he can keep shooting 60 more days. realDonaldTrump RudyGiuliani hey trumpster Rudy gonna get you put in front of a fire squad if ur not careful. This guy has no idea what he is doing or how the law works !! Blind folds

Ha ha adamboultonSKY adamboultonSKY We will not be goverened by tyrants and cheaters. Are you done now. Not to mention on top of that Massachusetts and various other states have had ballot counting machines that have been rigged for always returning a Democrat vote for the those specific states. Massachusetts for example has always been Democrat.....

I hereby challenge all supreme Court judges in the USA, since there has been voter fraud for over 60 years in Massachusetts, Michigan, Pennsylvania, California, Nevada and some other states.. Mail in ballots for the states that I have mentioned have been stolen in the past Everything Collusion? 👽🇺🇸

Since when a judge follows the mob and ad hoc decisions to defraud the legal votes its over donald Any lawyer could’ve foreseen this decision from the start. Lack of evidence aside, no court is going to disenfranchise millions of legitimate voters. The remedy sought by Trump is as unconstitutional as it is unviable. Duping supporters into thinking otherwise is malfeasance.

Pack it up, old man! Morning_Joe And now Trump is being sued. Good. I hope a couple hundred groups will file a lawsuit against him. Let him and his minions know the courts are a two way street. Mr. President-please please stop. It’s embarrassing & your youngest son deserves better. Show him how to handle this like a man & not a tantrum riddled toddler. You are better than this.Take the rest of this time & do this with dignity. Leave a legacy that Barron can be proud of.

Someone needs to show the video of his spiritual advisor Paula White at her marathon prayer event in Florida to re-elect Trump at the Senate. I would suggest that if Trump thinks he's the chosen one in evangelical circles, the supernatural in her prayers might be a factor. ! This claim about election is disputed.

Can’t wait for trump to start name calling the judge...everyone else is wrong, trump number one supreme leader Morning_Joe Sing it with me people!!! And another one gone, and another one gone Another one bites the dust Hey, I'm gonna get you too Another one bites the dust.. LoserInTheWhiteHouse Loser4Life

TRUMP turned the USA RED one way or another 🤦🏻 He turned it RED WITH COVID19 SPIKES Ohio State beat Indiana 42-35, but I hear Indiana is challenging that ruling and claims they have found more points. Perhaps Trump can send his cronies ('legal team') to Indiana to help. Who's the Snowflake now? Judge Says: That's not how the Constitution works Trump says: What's a Constitution?

What’s the judges name, Time to investigate him or her. 🤣😂🤣💙💙 Pennsylvania will perish with Joe Democrat judges are in with deep state. No justice Trump Really Undermines Moral Presidency My hat's off to that federal judge. More people need to tell donald how ridiculous he is being. GOP is on leave. LOST AGAIN IN PA!!!

fake news! The judge agrees with their claim but does not agree with their solution. He then does not have courage to come up with a real solution and goes easier route. Pack your bags, dude. A very sleek and classy tongue lashing PA courts are activists. It’s a disgrace. lol prepare for all night tweet from the orange man

Morning_Joe Clang, clang, clang went the jail door Ding, ding, ding went the bell Zing, zing, zing went the handcuffs As Trump started into his cell. realDonaldTrump POTUS thrown out. Harsh words. Time to let it sink in. The election is over and they won't encourage your election fraud. Morning_Joe As the Judge said “ you have to have facts in a Lawsuit “ Sorry Rudy !!!!

Is there an attorney that we the people can use for a class action suit? What a good couple of months to be alive. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 Umpteen lawsuits LOST. Election LOST. The US and the world has WON! The grifter knows the jig is up. He also knows his followers drank the koolaid and will keep giving him their last dime which he'll take and run come January 20th.

Clang, clang, clang went the jail door Ding, ding, ding went the bell Zing, zing, zing went the handcuffs As Trump started into his cell. mumforia the judge's 37 of. ruling is the equivalent of a judicial roast. You can tell the judge put a lot of thought while writing to put POTUS on blast in an appropriate manner.

That is because there was no voter fraud. More Americans voted for Biden, voting Trumps butt out. MAKE AMERICA SMART AGAIN. DEFEAT CRIMINAL & FASCIST REPUBLICONS. GOD SENT THE trump CORONA VIRUS TO RID US OF THESE republicon SCUM BAGS. DEFEAT CON REPUBLI CONS FOR A BETTER TOMORROW . FIX CLIMATE CHANGE, NOT ELECTIONS. CON REPUBLICONS KNEW ABOUT CORONA VIRUS FOR YEARS

adamboultonSKY Time to concede... Tick tock... Booooya Obama judge 🤦🏻‍♂️ Golfing, toilet talk...stick to your strong points. You going to say the media is lying? God bless our judiciary. Trump only wants to count white votes as legitimate. That’s his strategy to win. TrumpIsANationalDisgrace TrumpIsPathetic

Donald is a sore LOSER! joe_warmington BREAKING: The court is overstepping its bounds. I am amazed at the level of incompetence that this current Presi... actually I wouldn't even call him that. This person is not fit for office. I AM EMBARRASSED to have his picture hung up on the same wall as myself. Please take his picture down. notfitforoffice

How many losses is that? geor97 Supreme Court There are sworn testimonies. And proof! Utter BS! They trying disenfranchise in Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, it didn’t work out either the water of the swamp is deep. snakes and mice from same hole. 山高林密,问樵夫何处下手, 路远水深,劝渔翁及早回头! 回头是岸,立地成佛! Well when there's no evidence, (or if it's fabricated like in AZ.) you really can't sue.

Tom_Winter Judge: red hat cult fantasies are laughable and will not be tolerated in an American court room. adamboultonSKY All that 'winning' has got to hurt Tom_Winter Trump lost...again and again. Unless it’s an illegally cast vote 😂 and how about if the “voters” are dead? Or, removing duplicates? Good but how long is this going to go on. It’s childish & ridiculous.

But Rudy was having his hair redone for his Sweatysburg address part 2. He was subpoenaing joe Pesci, Marisa Tomei and Ralph Macchio as witnesses! WE Trust Him MAGA An Obama appointed judge. Trump is a mess! Hes on pace to match the 2012 charlotte bobcats 'Elite Strike Force' Bruh this is embarrassing rn hes now 2-32 in lawsuits

'That's not how the Constitution works, Don.' Now go back to Mar-a-Lago and stay there! 👣👣👣 NBC should move back to the Middle East Trump and his acolytes cannot take our votes, our rights, our constitution or our country from us. They have used and abused these things for four long, bitter years. Now it ends.

Still no proof. Stop giving him your money, MAGAts. It’s a con. You might have to write that in crayon with some pictures so dumbass understands In 2017, ordinary citizen and lawyer Kathy Boockvar tweeted that Trump was “dangerously unfit” to be president. In 2019 she was appointed to Secretary of State of Pennsylvania, head of elections. That seems like an unbiased person for the job. 🤮

So much winning going on for Trump.... Trump sees this.. stands from his chair... footlong tuna salad sub in hand and hurls it at Ivankas head like a football. She loves subway and snatches it like a well paid wide receiver. Trump upset he missed her head & yet another target tells her to get lost while sobbing.

Bye bye Trump You SUE US and yet still expect us to be ok with this? Guess that's why America spoke and finally call you the BIGGEST LOSER Be more social, better try next time..! Sucks to be The Donald. Democracy folks! Poor Trump 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 Easy and Fast! Bon appétit 1 Minute Tasty Recipe 🥞 🍳 These frivolous lawsuits are damaging our society and are expensive. He should have to foot the legal fees and all associated court costs as well as GO TO F'ing JAIL for this BS!

The media has convinced the in educated population that one judges ruling is the end of the road. Never heard of appeals process , circuit courts and the appeals process to SCOTUS. Brainwashed Well ig that’s a automatic win for Biden😂 Go and concede trump, we waited 4 years for this moment I think realDonaldTrump needs to can RudyGiuliani . This guy is available.
