Pennsylvania Republican sen. Pat Toomey issued a statement declaring this on Saturday evening Donald Trump has “exhausted all likely legal ones“Challenges to the presidential election and that it is time for him to accept and” facilitate “the transition process.
Toomey issued a statement following a harsh ruling by U.S. District Court judge Matthew W. Brann on Saturday throwing out the latest lawsuit from Trump’s campaign to abolish the votes cast in the state. Brann called Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani for trying to “deprive nearly 7 million voters of the right” without cause or evidence.
Conservative Republican Brann Toomey called him a “fair and impartial lawyer.”
Toomey noted that Brann’s decision was the most recent when Trump’s campaign failed to undo the results in Georgia and Michigan.
“These changes, along with the results for the rest of the nation, confirm that Joe Biden won the 2020 election and will become the 46th U.S. president,” Toomey said.
The senator called Biden and Harris “devoted civil servants” who prayed. Toomey said he was looking forward to “working through the passage with Biden” and that they were committed to fighting COVID-19 together.
Toomey concluded that he was disappointed Trump did not win the election and that he strongly supported several issues supported by the president, such as corporate tax and regulatory cuts.
However, in order to “ensure that he is remembered for these extraordinary achievements and to help unite our country, President Trump should agree with the election results and facilitate the presidential election process,” the senator added.
There was no word from the White House or the president.
