McEnany, the White House press secretary and a senior adviser for the Trump campaign, made the comment about 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Stephanos Bibas, a Trump appointee, during a Saturday interview on Fox & Friends. Her comments, which she made as a campaign representative and not one of the White House, came a day after Bibas wrote that the campaign didn't have "specific allegations" or "proof."

The Supreme Court is running the clock on Trump's election lawsuits, experts say

  The Supreme Court is running the clock on Trump's election lawsuits, experts say The Supreme Court has shown little interest in taking up President Donald Trump's numerous legal challenges against the election results.And in his speech on election night falsely declaring victory, he said "we'll be going to the US Supreme Court" to address the "major fraud in our nation.

The Trump campaign 's Pennsylvania lawsuit is its biggest legal challenge related to the 2020 election. In the case, Trump 's campaign sued seven Democratic counties over vague allegations of voter fraud and asked that a judge block the state from certifying its election results for

New White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was a harsh critic of then-candidate Donald McEnany added that Trump 's comments were "derogatory" and as "equally hateful" as Sharpton's. A day later on CNN, McEnany called Trump "a Republican in name only" who needed to apologize for

The Trump campaign has vowed to bring the case to the Supreme Court, and one of the anchors, Jedediah Bila, asked McEnany how she expects the nine justices to react to the suit, given the rebuke from Bibas and comments that she said "come up repeatedly ... in conversation" that what’s being “alleged on Twitter or in press conferences is not being alleged in court and cannot be proven in court via evidence.”

"Yeah, Jed. I think this 3rd Circuit Court judge misunderstood the argument because, look, it’s an equal protection argument," McEnany answered.

McEnany laid out the campaign's claims that voters in certain counties — the counties that were predominately Democratic — were allowed to cure their ballots, while voters in primarily Republican counties were not given the same chance.

CNN Reporter Fires Back at Kayleigh’s ‘Activists’ Snipe: You’re ‘Not Doing Your Job!’

  CNN Reporter Fires Back at Kayleigh’s ‘Activists’ Snipe: You’re ‘Not Doing Your Job!’ CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins was in no mood for White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s anti-media snark on Friday afternoon, telling the former pundit-turned-Trump-flack know that she was failing to uphold her taxpayer-funded duties. At the end of her first White House press briefing since Oct. 1, McEnany—who has been moonlighting as a Trump campaign aide—wrapped up the news conference after only taking a handful of questions.

“The Campaign cannot win this lawsuit The Trump campaign , led by attorney Rudy Giuliani, sued Pennsylvania in a bid to throw out its But calling an election unfair does not make it so,” U.S. Circuit Judge Stephanos Bibas, who was appointed by President Donald Trump , wrote in the court’s ruling.

The panel of three judges deemed the case was without merit, saying the Trump campaign had not made specific allegations or provided proof. In giving the appeal court's opinion, Judge Stephanos Bibas wrote: "Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious.

"If you were in the seven blue counties in Pennsylvania, you were given an extraordinary opportunity to fix your mail-in ballot, to cure your ballot. But if you were in the other 60 mainly Republican counties, you didn’t get that privilege. That’s an equal protection violation," she said. "We have a right to ask these questions, and we have presented affidavits. And there are declarations made as well, so there is evidence there, and it’s important for the Supreme Court, we feel, to take a look at this."

The case had been argued in the lower court by Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal attorney, who has since headed up the campaign's legal strategies. During five hours of oral arguments, he said that there had been massive fraud in Pennsylvania.

In that hearing, U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann said the campaign's spelling and error-filled complaint was similar to "Frankenstein's monster" who had been "haphazardly stitched together."

It was a Trump appointed judge who wrote this decision too. The lawsuits are indeed proof that the Trump campaign has no case. This all stems from a fundamental misunderstanding of how the American legal system works, which is further rooted in watching too many stupid legal dramas.

Federal appeals court dismisses Trump campaign lawsuit over Pennsylvania voting procedures. President Trump , who has accused his political rivals of a widespread campaign of voter fraud involving mail-in ballots Trump -appointed judge rejects Trump campaign 's appeal in Pennsylvania .

President-elect Joe Biden won the election with 306 Electoral College votes to President Trump's 232. It appears that the former vice president won a handful of states that the president won four years ago, including Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

While Biden has started the presidential transition and has already begun naming Cabinet officials, the president has refused to concede, and his campaign is seeking recounts and legal remedies in the hope of securing a second term for Trump in a number of battleground states.

The Trump campaign claims that there were widespread voter fraud and irregularities and that election officials committed inappropriate offenses that call the results into question.
