Attorney Alan Dershowitz, the outspoken Democrat who defended President Trump during the Senate impeachment trial, predicts that the president will prevail in his Pennsylvania lawsuit.
Speaking with “Breitbart News Tonight,” Dershowitz said that the U.S. Supreme Court will likely take up the president’s lawsuit against Pennsylvania due to the fact that the state’s court implemented election laws that the state legislature did not approve.
“I do think that Trump will win the Pennsylvania lawsuit … namely, the lawsuit that challenges ballots that were filed before the end of Election Day, but not received until after Election Day,” Dershowitz said.
“The [Pennsylvania] legislature had basically said no to that, and the state Supreme Court said yes because of the pandemic,” he continued. “That may have been the right decision in some theoretical sense, but the Constitution doesn’t permit anybody in the state but the legislature to make decisions about elections.”
Citing the Bush v. Gore case in 2000, Dershowitz asserted that President Trump may very well overturn the Pennsylvania election call if he and his legal team can prove that the segregated ballots helped sway the election.
