Thanks Mark. It’s all a continuation of the never ending Witch Hunt. Judge Brann, who would not even allow us to present our case or evidence, is a product of Senator Pat “No Tariffs” Toomey of Pennsylvania, no friend of mine, & Obama - No wonder. 900,000 Fraudulent Votes! https://t.co/17rk2KsUPs
PA Judge Brann is not having it, writing the Trump campaign lawyers "ask this Court to disenfranchise
almost seven million voters.... One might expect that when
seeking such a startling outcome, a plaintiff would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and...
This is how Wikipedia added to Judge Brann's biography on its page just now: "He became briefly famous when he presided over a case which was part of President Trump's attempt to steal Pennsylvania's presidential electors."
1. This thread is going to be the entirety of the intro to Judge Brann's dismissal of the Trump campaign's federal lawsuit in Pennsylvania.
It lays everything out beautifully.
Federal Judge Brann’s absolute evisceration of Trump&Giuliani tonight mirrors very much what skilled Pennsylvania lawyer Mark Aronchick said in court in the hearing. 1 side had facts and advocacy. The other side ...?
Note Brann is a conservative Republican, GOP official b4 bench
Conservative twitter is erupting w these Obama-judge takes, but it's all delusional. Judge Brann was a Federalist Society member who served on the Pa. GOP State Comm, on his county Republican committee for 18 years. He reportedly was picked by Toomey.
Judge Brann's "DENIED AS MOOT" is the judicial version of the bitchslap voters delivered on November 3rd.
In case you are wondering what Judge Brann’s message to the Trump campaign was when he said their case was ‘DENIED AS MOOT’ and ‘WITH PREJUDICE,’ watch the last five seconds of this video
🚨BREAKING: Trump v Boockvar REJECTED. Major loss for Trump and his lawyer Rudolph Giuliani. And major victory for voters! Judge Brann notes that granting relief would have meant invalidating the ballots of every person who voted in Pennsylvania. https://t.co/8SMPgbKPnK
Judge Brann’s decision dismissing the ludicrous Trump suit in PA, made more ludicrous by Rudy Giuliani’s involvement, is an absolute beatdown.
Judge Brann tosses Trump suit.
He does not sound happy.
Judge Brann's nomination questionnaire: "I currently serve as the Republican State Committeeman for Bradford County, Chairman of the Northeast Caucus of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania, and as a member of the Leadership Committee of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania."
As I understand it, Judge Brann was appointed by Pres. Obama in a deal with Senator Toomey. J. Brann is a Republican who has been a member of the Federalist Society. https://t.co/XlrEN2v7qi
Judge Brann has permanently dismissed Donald Trump's lawsuit to overturn election results in PA.
"One might expect that when seeking such a startling outcome, a plaintiff would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption…" https://t.co/ta3nbHcdmK
RELAX everyone... Judge Brann is an OBAMA PUPPET. Of course he is going to throw out a Trump Lawsuit. This gets us exactly where we want it to go, to the SUPREME COURT.
Please RETWEET so other people who are nervous or scared can see this to put them at ease. Love you
"Rather than requesting that their votes be counted, they seek to discredit scores of other votes, but only for one race. This is simply not how the Constitution works."
Judge Brann scorches Trump's requested presidential-race-only invalidation request. #AlwaysReadTheFootnotes
BREAKING: PA judge Matthew Brann dismissed Trump's latest lawsuit with a brutal rebuke.
Rudy Giuliani (and right-wing pundits) say its because he's progressive. Judge Brann was in the Federalist Society, served on the PA GOP, and on his county Republican committee for 18 years.
Judge Brann: “Plaintiffs ask this Court to disenfranchise almost seven million voters. This Court has been unable to find any case in which a plaintiff has sought such a drastic remedy in the contest of an election, in terms of the sheer volume of votes asked to be invalidated.”
Judge Brann's nomination questionnaire: "I currently serve as the Republican State Committeeman for Bradford County, Chairman of the NE Caucus of the Republican Party of PA, and as a member of the Leadership Committee of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania."
See my thread from last night.
Technically what Judge Brann did was grant the defendant's motion to dismiss.
A motion to dismiss is what a defendant brings at the start of a lawsuit to get rid of totally frivolous claims so the court doesn't have to waste time.
Judge Brann: “In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state. Our people, laws, and institutions demand more.” https://t.co/amOxMQsUNd
To sum it up, tRump's Complaint and subsequent Pleadings were prepared with studied imprecision.
Then, tRump's arguments were delivered to Judge Brann by attorneys who studied at the Kanye West School of Legal Advocacy. https://t.co/92v6sNQRSq
Okay, so help me out. Judge Brann canceled the evidentiary hearing on the fraud issues because Rudy admitted in court that this isn’t a fraud case. So they intend to appeal... what exactly? The denial of the hearing? The denial of the motion to amend the complaint?
He referred to Judge Brann as a Obama Judge. He just forgot to mention that he is a conservative Republican who is a member of the Federalist society
Are we done yet? The reasonable Federal Judge @Brann of Penn. described Trumps case as a tortured “Frankenstein’s Monster” & the remedy it sought-effectively disenfranchising nearly seven million voters in the state — as “unhinged.”
I guess Rudy hasn’t felt Judge Brann’s stiletto to the gut yet—to Rudy’s utter unfamiliarity with facts and truth, and to his abilities as a lawyer. Brann’s decision basically says Rudy’s the worst lawyer he’s ever encountered, and he sends him packing. “And never come back.” https://t.co/VY4jskoFnD
