In a Friday night bombshell, a Pennsylvania judge breathed new life into President Trump’s fight for election integrity – and the White House itself.
HUGE decision issued by Commonwealth Court Judge Patricia McCulloughhttps://t.co/q0vDuNXGaa

Here’s a quick synopsis of the victory:
Notable points from PA Judge:
– Commonwealth barred from taking ANY further steps to certify results
– Issues raised found to be of "Statewide and National concern"
-"likelihood to succeed on the merits"

The decision makes it likely that Trump’s case will make it all the way to the Supreme Court.
Legal Insurrection explains:
A Pennsylvania state court Judge has issued a preliminary injunction preventing Pennsylvania from taking any further steps to perfect its certification of the election, including but not limited to appointment of electors and transmission of necessary paperwork to the Electoral College, pending further court hearings and rulings.
This is not a final ruling on the merits. It’s meant to prevent PA from taking more steps until the court finally rules.
Given how the PA Supreme Court has ruled previously on election matters, expanding procedures beyond what even the legislature adopted, I don’t see how this survives the PA Supreme Court. From there, the next stop is the U.S. Supreme Court where we know John Roberts and the three liberal Justice will defer to the state supreme court. But the Court is now 6-3, so a Roberts defection would not result in a 4-4 deadlock again if the 5 conservative Justices voted together.
This is the legal victory Trump needed in Pennsylvania. Now that he’s in the fight, Democrats would be foolish to count him out.
