The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has rejected the Trump campaign claim that Republicans were denied access to view the Philadelphia vote count.  

The court's decision was 5-2 and overturned a lower court decision which granted Republican poll watchers to move within six feet of the people counting votes.

As part of the decision, Pennsylvania Supreme Court Judge Debra Todd sided with the Philadelphia Board of Elections stating "we find the board's regulations were reasonable."

 President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani has gone before a federal judge to accuse Democrats in control of big cities of hatching a conspiracy to steal the election from the Republican even though no such evidence has emerged. He argued a case Tuesday in a federal courthouse in Pennsylvania on the Trump campaign’s lawsuit seeking to prevent Pennsylvania from certifying the vote results. There is no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election. And experts say Trump’s various lawsuits have no chance of reversing the outcome in a single state, let alone the election. -WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP)
