Donald Trump's campaign is filing yet another election-related lawsuit in Wisconsin on Tuesday morning seeking to invalidate 220,000 ballots in the key battleground state he lost by 0.7 per cent.

The new lawsuit in the Wisconsin Supreme Court, reported by Fox News on Tuesday, comes after the Trump campaign was hit with another blow in the rust belt state over the weekend when they found more votes for Joe Biden in two county-wide recounts.

The new lawsuit – just one in a series filed by the Trump campaign in an effort to overturn the election results – alleges there was abuse surrounding the absentee voting process in Wisconsin.

In last-gasp maneuver, Trump campaign tries to invalidate thousands of votes as Wisconsin recount gets underway

  In last-gasp maneuver, Trump campaign tries to invalidate thousands of votes as Wisconsin recount gets underway The president’s campaign sought to disqualify all votes cast in person before Election Day in two Democratic strongholds. As a recount began on Friday in Dane and Milwaukee counties — home to the cities of Madison and Milwaukee — Trump lawyers argued that officials should not merely retabulate all the votes cast in the Nov. 3 election to reconfirm they’d been counted properly.

"The Wisconsin recount is not about finding mistakes in the count, it is about finding people who have voted illegally, and that case will be brought after We have found many illegal votes ," Trump wrote. Last week, the authorities of Wisconsin granted a request from Trump ’s lawyers for a vote recount in

'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,' Jim Troupis, a former Wisconsin Circuit Court judge now leading the president's legal team in the state, told Fox.

'Regardless, we're demonstrating that the results of this election unequivocally ought to be questioned,' Troupis said.

Troupis said that while the Wisconsin recount in Milwaukee and Dane Counties did not flip in President Trump's favor, it gave the campaign the 'unique ability' to examine ballots, which he says revealed further issues.

The Trump campaign has filed a lawsuit in the Middle District of Pennsylvania alleging the state's mail-in voting system "lacked all of the hallmarks of The campaign scored a narrow victory after the state's Commonwealth Court barred county election officials from counting mail-in and absentee

The president's campaign claims Wisconsin Election Commission officials and the City Clerks of Milwaukee and Madison 'willfully disregarded the current statute and made conscious efforts to circumvent Wisconsin election law.'

They insist this resulted in tens of thousands of votes cast 'well outside of the bounds of Wisconsin law.'

The lawsuit is expected to be filed Tuesday morning just two days after Wisconsin completed its partial recount and their Democratic Governor Tony Evers formally certified Biden's victory Monday night.

Troupis argues that Evers certification came too soon and is suggesting that Trump's campaign doesn't have a right to launch more legal pursuits regarding the election.

'With Governor Evers' premature certification, he is saying the President of the United States has no right to go to court in order to have illegal ballots examined,' Troupis said. 'He's not saying we have a frivolous lawsuit — he is saying we have no right to judicial review — that's another level of bad.'

Biden gains 87 votes in Trump's $3M Wisconsin recount as Dane County wraps up review. President plans lawsuit.

  Biden gains 87 votes in Trump's $3M Wisconsin recount as Dane County wraps up review. President plans lawsuit. Biden netted 132 votes in Milwaukee County and Trump netted 45 votes in Dane County. Taken together, that increased Biden's statewide lead to 21,695.The completion of Dane County’s retallying of the vote came two days after Milwaukee County finished its recount.

The president has also launched lawsuits in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin , saying mail-in or absentee votes should not be counted over concerns of voter fraud. Regardless of Biden’s margin of Electoral College votes , Trump refuses to concede and has repeatedly reiterated his concerns of voter fraud.

Wisconsin Supreme Court: In Wisconsin Voters Alliance v. Wisconsin Election Commission, a conservative group Maricopa County Superior Court: In Trump v. Hobbs, the Trump campaign claimed that using Sharpies to fill in mail-in ballots caused an overvote and invalidated ballots.

An election official also alleged to Fox that there was 'inappropriate coordination between the Biden campaign' and election officials that could disqualify many votes from the count – including those absentee ballots turned in at polling locations outside of their own county.

'This highlights inappropriate coordination between the Biden campaign and the city's election officials,' the official said, noting voters 'are not allowed to turn in their absentee ballots anywhere other than designated polling locations.'

Wisconsin further cemented Joe Biden's victory Sunday in the two recounts that increased his lead over Trump by 87 votes.

The recounts demanded by Trump's reelection campaign in Milwaukee and Dane County, two of Wisconsin's most populous and Democratic-leaning counties, concluded Friday and Sunday respectively.

Wisconsin law requires the campaign requesting the recount to foot the bill, meaning that it cost Trump's campaign $3 million and only advanced Biden's victory over the president.

Overall, the recounts gave Biden 257 more votes to Trump's 125, giving the former vice president a net 87 more votes than he originally held over the president in Wisconsin.

The lawsuit is expected to be 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 discovered ballots just increasing Biden's lead undermines Trump's bid to overturn the election result. The president claims there was widespread voter fraud and ballot irregularities in the presidential election that he insists ending up hurting him in the race.

The recount contradicts these claims.

Trump's campaign maintains that this outcome proves there are further issues regarding the integrity of the election in Wisconsin, where Biden won by just 0.7 per cent – hence the forthcoming lawsuit.

'The recounts in Dane and Milwaukee Counties have revealed serious issues regarding the legality of ballots cast,' the campaign's lawyer Jenna Ellis said in a statement to DailyMail.com.

'As we have said from the very beginning, we want every legal vote, and only legal votes to be counted, and we will continue to uphold our promise to the American people to fight for a free and fair election,' she added.

Biden, 78, won the November 3 presidential election with 306 Electoral College votes to Trump's 232. A presidential candidate needs 270 Electoral College votes to win.

The Trump campaign's new lawsuit would invalidate 221,000 Wisconsin ballots — including votes cast by mail because of the coronavirus pandemic

  The Trump campaign's new lawsuit would invalidate 221,000 Wisconsin ballots — including votes cast by mail because of the coronavirus pandemic The lawsuit would also invalidate the vote of Trump's top election lawyer in Wisconsin, who said he voted illegally.Wisconsin already certified its votes Monday. President-elect Joe Biden increased his margin of victory in the state through a recount the Trump campaign requested, winning by more than 20,000 votes.

The former vice president also leads by more than six million in the popular vote tally.

After the recount ended, Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson said: 'The recount demonstrates what we already know: that elections in Milwaukee County are fair, transparent, accurate and secure.'

The Trump campaign is still expected to mount a legal challenge to the overall result in Wisconsin, but time for that is running out as the state is due to certify its presidential result on Tuesday.

Trump won Wisconsin, a rust belt swing state, in 2016 by only 0.7 per cent.

The Wisconsin Election Commission will meet Tuesday to vote on certifying the election results. The chairwoman of the six-member panel, who is a Democrat, said the state will move to certify the state's popular vote win for Biden.

The president still plans to launch legal battles in an attempt to prevent Wisconsin from moving forward.

The three Republicans on the state's six-member election commission could seek to delay certification with a deadlock while the process unfolds.

'The Wisconsin recount is not about finding mistakes in the count, it is about finding people who have voted illegally, and that case will be brought after the recount is over, on Monday or Tuesday,' Trump wrote in a tweet Saturday.

He added without providing any evidence: 'We have found many illegal votes. Stay tuned!'

The Wisconsin blow is just another in a series of losses for Trump's battle to overturn his loss.

His efforts to stop Michigan officials from certifying the vote earlier this month failed.

A hand recount of ballots in Georgia confirmed Biden's win there and two new court decisions in Pennsylvania late last week rejected the president's campaign's attempts to halt the vote count there.

Four of six states where Trump has tried to halt the certification process have already certified and on Monday, Arizona is set to finalize the results there, as well.
