Giuliani reveals Trump campaign is filing new Supreme Court bid to try to overturn election result

The Trump campaign has filed a new legal challenge in the US Supreme Court seeking to overturn election results in Wisconsin.

The move was announced by campaign lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who said the filing was aimed at the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decision to reject their claims against more than 50,000 ballots. Joe Biden won Wisconsin by a margin of about 20,000 votes.

The Trump campaign says its petition will present claims that ballots were counted by voters without identification, incomplete absentee ballots were counted, and ballots were collected by hand at events held before the election.

Similar claims by the president and his surrogates in the past have not been backed by any proof. Lawsuits alleging fraud that “stole” the election from Mr Trump have been thrown out by courts across the US as his campaign has descended into incoherence and conspiracy.

The new case is the Trump campaign’s second filing in the Supreme Court after its challenge to the Pennsylvania election results on 20 December.
