WASHINGTON D.C. — (12-12-20) — U.S. District Judge Brett Ludwig rejected President Trump’s election lawsuit in Wisconsin, putting the final nail in the coffin on Trump’s legal hopes for overturning the 2020 election results.
Judge Brett Ludwig who was appointed by Trump, dismissed the suit finding that the president’s arguments “fail as a matter of law and fact.” wrote Judge Ludwig.
The rejection came as the Wisconsin Supreme Court was hearing arguments from a Trump attorney in a state case during a rare Saturday hearing.

The president wanted the court to throw out more than 220,000 absentee and early in-person ballots in Dane and Milwaukee counties because, according to the Trump campaign, proper requests were not made for the ballots and clerks filled in missing information. All of which they had no evidence to back up their allegations. A circuit judge ruled on Friday that the argument did not have merit.
The defeat comes one day after the U.S Supreme Court rejected the crackpot Texas lawsuit that seeked to overturn Biden’s win in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Michigan. Effectively throwing out millions of American votes to hand the victory to Trump. The lawsuit had the backing of 18 Republican state attorneys and 126 U.S. House Republicans.
Despite many legal defeats, the president’s campaign and his allies continue to say they are not done.
“We’re not finished,” Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Friday. “Believe me.”
Meanwhile, the Electoral College will meet on Monday December 14 to cast its votes and finalize president-elect Joe Biden’s victory. The president-elect won 306 electoral votes compared with Trump’s 232.
