Team Trump has issued a petition to the United States Supreme Court. Trump is essentially requesting the court to make a review of lower court’s decisions in the Donald J. Trump v. Wisconsin Elections Commission, et. al case.

The Trump legal team has said the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) and other local officials broke state laws on absentee voting when they had unauthorized and illegal absentee vote drops, coerced ballot witness certificates and encouraged avoiding voter id laws.

The petition says these tactics were all a deliberate violation of Article II, Sec. 12 of the U.S. Constitution and the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause. 

The desire is for the high court to rule the state’s actions unconstitutional and eliminate their electoral votes.

The Counsel for the case, Bill Bock, issued a statement condemning the fraud. Saying that safeguards against fraud were removed by unelected people in Wisconsin. And went on to ask the Court to make the last-minute changes needed to protect the election process.

This is Trump’s third petition to the Supreme Court. The first was concerning Pennsylvania’s absentee ballot extension. The second was aimed at Wisconsin’s failure to stop voter fraud.
