Trump-appointed federal judge to Trump campaign: Calling an election ‘unfair’ doesn’t mean it’s true

This Friday, a federal appeals court rejected the Trump campaign’s attempt to revive its lawsuit against Pennsylvania officials, which accused them of discriminating against people who voted for Trump.

“Calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here,” a unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit said, according to NBC News.

As NBC News points out, the judge who wrote the opinion was Stephanos Bibas, who was appointed to the court by Trump.

“After a federal judge dismissed their lawsuit on Nov. 21, comparing it to ‘Frankenstein’s Monster,’ Trump campaign lawyers asked the appeals court to let them try again with a revised version. But the appeals court said that would have simply rehashed claims already rejected by state and federal courts,” the NBC News report stated. “The panel called the Trump claims ‘vague and conclusory’ and said they failed to allege discrimination because they did not contend that Trump voters or election observers were treated differently than those for President-elect Joe Biden.”
