President Donald Trump is planning to leave the White House Wednesday to meet his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani in Pennsylvania for a GOP event on “election issues and irregularities,’” according CNN.
The two will meet at a Gettysburg hotel, in a meeting requested by State Senator Dough Mastriano, to discuss Trump’s court challenge against Pennsylvania’s election results.
Joe Biden was certified as the winner of the presidential election in Pennsylvania, culminating three weeks of vote counting and a string of failed legal challenges by Trump, state officials said Tuesday.
The results show Biden and Harris with 3.46 million votes, Trump and Vice President Mike Pence with 3.38 million, and Libertarian Jo Jorgensen with 79,000.
Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, in a news release, called the state’s election officials and poll workers “the true heroes of our democracy.”
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Jenna Ellis, an attorney working on the Trump campaign, says Trump’s legal team is refusing to "back down" despite state officials certifying Biden's victory.
"It's in everyone's interest to have a full vetting of election irregularities and fraud," Giuliani said in a statement reported by Bloomberg.
