A federal judge listened to oral arguments Monday, but he had already prejudged the case in granting leftist “interveners'” motions of dismiss, including the Democrat National Committee, according to former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell on Newsmax TV.
“The court wouldn’t pay attention of it,” Powell told Monday’s “Greg Kelly Reports” of her lawsuit calling for the decertification of Georgia’s election results amid evidence of election and voter fraud. “It’s obvious the judge had made up his mind before he hit the bench, and he read from prepared notes when he granted the motion to dismiss.
“So, we had oral argument, but I would say it was essentially meaningless, except to the extent the public got to hear another federal judicial proceeding that didn’t turn out the way it should have.”
U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Batten ruled the case had no standing to sue, the case belonged in state court, was filed too late, and the relief sought was “extraordinary.”
“We’re going to proceed immediately with an emergency appeal, and we expect to get relief in the Supreme Court,” Powell told host Greg Kelly.
“We’re determined to win because the American people have been defrauded from their lawful votes in this election, and that cannot stand,” she concluded.
Jenna Ellis: Media in ‘Rush to Judgment’
While the states see Dec. 8 as the date to certify elections before a Dec. 14 electoral college vote, the Trump campaign sees Jan. 6 as the true “safe harbor deadline,” according to Trump campaign senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis on Newsmax TV.
“[Tuesday’s] quote, unquote ‘safe harbor deadline’ actually has no practical effect on the litigation, and even Dec. 14 really doesn’t,” Ellis told Monday’s “Stinchfield.”
“All of these are guided, of course, by Congress and when the states actually complete their next steps in terms of delegates. But when the delegate votes are actually opened, certified by Congress, and counted – and that’s when we have a president elect is Jan. 6.”
Even the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, citing Bush v. Gore, notes Jan. 6, Ellis told host Grant Stinchfield.
“Jan. 6 is the date we’re looking at, so we still have a ways to go in this, Grant” she added. “And it’s really just the fake news mainstream media that wants to rush this to judgment.”
