Trump Campaign attorney Rudy Giuliani announced the lawsuit he filed with the Supreme Court seeking to have Wisconsin’s election results reversed and the state’s votes awarded to President Donald Trump.
The case calls for a challenge to 50,000 votes, according to a statement published by attorney Jenna Ellis on her Twitter account on Dec. 29.
Among the grounds for illegality are that ballots were counted by people without identification, incomplete absentee ballots were counted, and ballots collected by hand at events held before the election were included.
Giuliani argues these irregularities would violate Article II of the U.S. Constitution and Wisconsin law.

Suppose the Trump Campaign’s case is upheld. Then, the votes regained are more than double the 20,000 votes by which Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was certified as the winner in the state.
Plaintiffs are asking that the case be heard quickly to obtain results before Jan. 6, when Congress convenes to count the votes cast by the electoral colleges of the 50 states, on the basis of which the new president could be appointed unless circumstances prevent it.
Previously, the state Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit, ruling by a 4-3 vote that Trump’s challenge to voters who were indefinitely confined lacked merit and that the other claims came too late.
However, for critics, this court decision was based more on procedural details than on the merits of the claimed irregularities’ illegality.
This type of response has characterized the rulings of courts in other states, where they also rejected cases defending the transparency of the electoral process.
President Trump himself expressed his dissatisfaction with the Supreme Court for not adequately considering the abundant evidence of election fraud that benefited Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
“The U.S. Supreme Court has been totally incompetent and weak on the massive Election Fraud that took place in the 2020 Presidential Election. We have absolute PROOF, but they don’t want to see it—No ‘standing,’ they say. If we have corrupt elections, we have no country!'” he wrote in a Dec. 26 Twitter posting.

Likewise, Trump Campaign attorney Jenna Ellis believes that the Supreme Court has abandoned its duty to enforce the Constitution.
Ellis accused the highest court of dereliction of duty and fidelity to the U.S. Constitution by “refusing to take up cases” in an interview with Newsmax TV host Grant Stinchfield on Dec. 29.
