Wisconsin Supreme Court turns down Trump election lawsuit calling for results to be decertified

Wisconsin’s Supreme Court has rejected a lawsuit from Trump seeking for the results to be decertified.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court said the lawsuit would be suited for one of the state’s lower courts.

Per TheHill “Trump filed the lawsuit on Tuesday, asking the state Supreme Court to toss out more than 200,000 votes in Democratic-leaning counties that he alleges were illegally cast.”

Jim Troupis, a lawyer for the Trump campaign, said Thursday “We welcome the direction of the Supreme Court to file in Dane and Milwaukee Counties as we pursue making certain that only legal votes count in Wisconsin — and we will immediately do so.”

He added “It was clear from their writings that the court recognizes the seriousness of these issues, and we look forward to taking the next step. We fully expect to be back in front of the Supreme Court very soon.”

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, a Democrat, blasted Trump’s lawsuit as an “assault on Democracy”

“President Trump’s Petition seeks nothing less than to overturn the will of nearly 3.3 million Wisconsin voters,” Evers attorney wrote in a brief “It is a shocking and outrageous assault on our democracy. The relief he seeks is wrong as a matter of law, incorrect as a matter of fact, and mistaken as a matter of procedure.”
