President Donald Trump is predicting “big things” in his election fraud cases this week. The president has not received much in the way of good news from the courts so far in his various lawsuit challenging the results of the presidential election over election problems but today he predicted the pendulum would begin swinging in his direction.
“The case has been made, and now we find out what we can do about it. You’ll see a lot of big things happening over the next couple of days,” he told reported today at the White House.
“It’s a disgrace to our country, it’s like a third-world country, these ballots pouring in from everywhere, using machinery that nobody knows ownership,” he said. “The glitches weren’t glitches — they got caught sending out thousands of votes, all against me.”
Tuesday is the “safe harbor” deadline for states to certify election results in advance of the Electoral College members meeting in each state, so Trump needs to see some legal victories soon before he passes additional important deadlines to swing the election back from Joe Biden.
The biggest potential action could come at the Supreme Court in his bid to take on election fraud in Pennsylvania.

A lawsuit was filed two weeks ago to challenge the legality of mail-in ballots and plaintiffs insist millions of mail-in ballots are not allowed by the state constitution. Now the U.S. Supreme Court has become involved and is requiring state officials to file legal briefs by tomorrow.
Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito is overseeing that appeal and appears to be interested in taking up the case. Alito moved the deadline from Dec. 9 to Dec. 8 to meet the “safe harbor” deadline.
But on Sunday, Alito moved up the deadline for Pennsylvania officials to respond to Tuesday by 9 a.m. ET. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the move is significant because it “would give the court a few hours Tuesday to act on Kelly’s request if it chooses to do so.”
The plaintiffs in the case are seeking to have the court toss all of the state’s mail-in ballots on the grounds that a state law passed in October 2019 that allows for no-excuse absentee voting is unconstitutional. The state constitution specifies that absentee votes can be cast for only a limited number of reasons.
Alito reportedly did not offer an explanation for the change, but nevertheless it is certainly a hopeful sign for efforts to challenge the state’s election results. The Inquirer noted that Alito’s original selection of the Dec. 9 deadline indicated to most legal observers that the court had no intention of acting on the case in a way that would alter the results.
Former Vice President Joe Biden currently leads incumbent President Donald Trump in the state by just over 80,000 votes. But should the courts rule that millions of mail-in ballots cast in the state be lost, it would effectively ensure a Pennsylvania victory for Trump as the election would be sent to the state’s Republican-controlled legislature for a vote.
In a unanimous decision late last month, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court rejected the lawsuit, essentially arguing that it arrived far too late and only came after the lawmakers’ favored candidate lost.
Meanwhile, Wisconsin lawmakers have announced a December 11 election fraud hearing and in Michigan Trump campaign attorneys were allowed Sunday morning to review Dominion voting machines in Antrim County. Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis told Fox News the county’s “unexplained, so-called glitch” switched 6,000 votes to Biden.
