Yesterday, we reported that Donald Trump was trying to put a halt to counting the votes in Pennsylvania. Donnie’s team planned on suing over Pennsylvania’s vote count because of alleged lack of “transparency.” The team sought to intervene in a Supreme Court case.
Now, a Pennsylvania judge has granted the Trump campaign’s request. Trump’s campaign staff can observe — up-close — Philadelphia poll workers as they continue to process the remaining mail-in ballots, according to Abc News.
This overturns the previous restrictions that kept the staff away due to COVID-19. Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon approved the reversal in a lower court decision. Judge Christine concluded that “all candidates, watchers, or candidate representatives be permitted to be present for the canvassing process … and be permitted to observe all aspects of the canvassing process within 6 feet, while adhering to all COVID-19 protocols, including wearing masks and maintaining social distancing.”
Donnie’s campaign staff is excited for the quick decision, calling it a “massive” win “for every person who has casted a legal ballot in the state of Pennsylvania.”
