Over the course of the last few weeks, President Trump and his legal team have found themselves in an unenviable position.
You see, President Trump himself is convinced that he has won the 2020 election, which flies in the face of the conventional call by the Associated Press that suggest that Joe Biden is the President-elect. Trump, along with Rudy Giuliani and other members of his heavy-hitting legal team, believe that a massive amount of voter fraud has taken place, and that their work to uncover the alleged improprieties could mean the difference between four more years and no more years.
In this pursuit, the group has now brought forth another lawsuit, this time in Wisconsin, and the litigation could affect over 200,000 ballots.
The lawsuit was filed Tuesday morning and comes after Wisconsin completed its partial recount — which maintained that Joe Biden won the presidential race in the state — and after Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers formally certified Biden’s victory Monday night.
The Trump campaign’s Wisconsin legal team, led by former Wisconsin Circuit Court Judge Jim Troupis, told Fox News that while the recount in the state did not flip in President Trump’s favor, it gave the campaign the “unique ability” to examine ballots.
“Exposing exactly how the election processes were abused in Wisconsin holds enormous value for this election beyond a victory for President Trump, but the fact is, our state’s electoral votes likely won’t change the overall outcome,” Troupis told Fox News. “Regardless, we’re demonstrating that the results of this election unequivocally ought to be questioned.”
The Trump team has had little success in the court system during their previous efforts, but they have managed to rile up Trump’s base with their frequent media appearances.
