President Trump filed a lawsuit Wednesday night “in his personal capacity as candidate for re-election” asking the Supreme Court to deem the Wisconsin presidential election result “unconstitutional.”
According to the press release “the lawsuit asks the Supreme Court to declare the Wisconsin election unconstitutional and void as a result of the multiple violations of law, and order the Wisconsin state legislature to appoint electors consistent with Article II, Sec 1.2 of the United States Constitution.”
Trump’s lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in a statement “President Trump continues to fight for the American people and election integrity. We have to restore integrity to our process through every legal and constitutionally viable mechanism.”
They add “America has seen the extent of corruption in this election and is demanding swift resolution. We hope that state legislatures in Wisconsin and the five other states will not wait on a court order but exercise their plenary constitutional authority and we continue to appeal to them as well as seek judicial remedy.”
The motion also asks the Supreme Court to consider the case in an expedited manner, citing the upcoming congressional review of the electoral college results on January 6th and Biden’s scheduled inauguration January 20th.
