Constitutional law expert, Alan Dershowitz predicts that President Trump will win a major lawsuit in Pennsylvania, restoring Trump’s large vote lead that was observed on election night. “I do think that Trump will win the Pennsylvania lawsuit,” Dershowitz said in an interview with Breitbart News Tonight.
The Pennsylvania legislature is in charge over all decisions that pertain to elections. Just before the election, the state Supreme Court tried to legislate from the bench and makeup election rules. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court agreed with Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar to accept all late-arriving ballots. This move interferes with the Pennsylvania legislature, which rejected a proposal to accept late-arriving ballots. In an appeal, the Trump campaign would easily win this case. According to the Pennsylvania legislature, late-arriving ballots could be declared illegal votes, and the court can’t change this legal determination.
Dershowitz said that this issue was “decided correctly in Bush versus Gore.” In the contested 2000 election, the Supreme Court overruled Florida’s Supreme Court, ultimately blocking requests for a manual recount of the state’s votes. Dershowitz believes the Supreme Court would rule in favor of the Pennsylvania legislature in congruence with precedent, which could throw out disputed ballots, as long as the dispute makes a difference in the outcome of the election. This is a likely scenario because many state vote counts are being contested simultaneously.
“The Supreme Court will take the case only if it would make a difference, only if the plaintiffs—the Republicans—can show that the number of disputed ballots that were subject to sequestration by Justice Samuel Alito’s decision exceeds the difference between the winning margin and the losing margin,” said Dershowitz.
The ruling could negatively impact some of the late-arriving votes that were erroneously held up by post office employees, bringing into question the validity of the entire election process in Pennsylvania. Regardless of the blurred lines, the Supreme Court handed the Republican Party their first victory when Justice Samuel Alito ordered Pennsylvania election officials to separate all ballots that arrived after election day. This ruling could lay the groundwork for illegal ballots being thrown out, in a highly contested process.
Additionally, it remains unclear whether the sixty-seven county boards of elections in Pennsylvania were properly segregating the late ballots even after being ordered to do so by the Supreme Court. The county boards of election report to Kathy Boockvar, the person who is supposed to be a “neutral arbiter” overseeing the election process in Pennsylvania. Bookckvar is far from a “neutral arbiter.”
In fact, she has revealed herself to be a politically-motivated hack, dead-set on removing Trump from office. She is tasked with overseeing conduct throughout Pennsylvania’s entire election process. She is also a die-hard democrat who believes Trump is “unfit to be President.”
Commonwealth Court Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt exposed Bookckvar and ruled that she “lacked statutory authority” to say that proof of ID could be provided to vote until November 12th. Put plainly, Boockvar violated state election law to rig the vote for a democrat win.
With this ruling, Republicans have now won on two separate occasions that challenge Democrat corruption in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Trump campaign could be in position to win big in a Supreme Court lawsuit that would throw out numerous illegal ballots that arrived after election day.
