President Trump took to Twitter Saturday night to express frustrations over Joe Biden, who conducted cabinet elections as Trump’s legal team continued to push accusations of election and voter fraud.
“Why is Joe Biden forming a cabinet so quickly, when my investigators have found hundreds of thousands of false votes, enough to” turn around “at least four states, which in turn is more than enough to win the election?” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Trump’s comments came as Wisconsin continued its recount, and hours after a federal judge in Pennsylvania threw down another Trump lawsuit aimed at preventing certification of state election results.
The decision by U.S. Central District Judge Matthew Brann on Saturday was just the latest disappointment for the Trump 2020 campaign, which struggled to topple the results of the November 3 election.
“Hopefully, the courts and / or legislatures have the courage to do what needs to be done to maintain the integrity of our choices and the United States itself,”
But Trump’s legal team has so far been unsuccessful in overthrowing state counts because it has not proven its claims of “hundreds of thousands of false votes” despite repeated accusations from Trump and his personal lawyer, Rudy Guiliani.
Trump accepts Cheney
Some GOP lawmakers have also pushed back against the president.
“The president and his lawyers have made claims of crime and widespread fraud, which they claim could affect the election results,” the rep said. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., In a statement Friday. “If they have real evidence of this, they say they are obliged to present it immediately to the court and to the American people. “
“If the president can not prove these claims or demonstrate that they will change the election result, he must fulfill his oath to preserve, protect and defend the United States Constitution by respecting the sanctity of our electoral process,” she added.
But in a furious tirade of tweets Saturday night, Trump went after Cheney.
“Sorry Liz, can not accept the results of an election with hundreds of thousands of false votes that are enough to easily reverse the election,” he said. “You’re just unhappy that I’re bringing the troops home where they belong!”
Rep. Ben Sasse, R-Neb. And Sens. Mitt Romney, R-Utah and Susan Collins, R-Maine, have also expressed their disapproval of Trump’s repeated attempts to overthrow the results of the presidential election through the courts.
“There is a right way and a wrong way to gather evidence and create legal challenges in our courts. The wrong way is to try to pressure state election officials,” Collins told Politico this week as Trump planned to meet with Michigan- legislators.
“It undermines the public’s belief in our election results without evidence and court decisions in support of the allegations.”
U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, R-Pa., Threw his support behind Judge Brann’s decision Saturday, congratulating Biden and elected Vice President Kamala Harris on their victory.
Toomey said he knew Brann, a “longtime Conservative Republican … for being a just and impartial lawyer,” and therefore he believed that Trump “has exhausted all likely legal options to challenge the outcome of the Pennsylvania presidential race.”
‘Obama appointed judge’
But Trump’s legal team and senior advisers suggested they believed Brann’s decision came from bias, noting that Brann was an “Obama-appointed judge.” They claimed that it was actually advancing their strategy of leading the fight to the US Supreme Court.
“Today’s decision turns out to help us in our strategy to get to the U.S. Supreme Court quickly,” Trump’s team said in a statement. “While we completely disagree with this view, we are grateful to the Obama-appointed judge for making this expected decision quickly rather than just trying to run around the clock.”
Pennsylvania, along with Michigan, plans to certify election results Monday, with Biden holding strong popular votes in both states.
On Saturday, however, Republican National Committee Chairman Ronna McDaniel requested a 14-day delay in Michigan so that a review could be conducted to resolve “irregularities and credible reports of procedural irregularities” in Wayne County, which include Detroit.

Georgia certified its votes Friday in a blow to the Trump campaign, which was originally based on the traditional red state’s 16 voting coal votes. It required a count in the hand after a tight run.
Biden was expected to win 306 election colleges, with Trump receiving 232, the same margin that Trump won by against Hillary Clinton in 2016.
