Federal judge Brann in dismissing Trump campaign lawsuit on PA presidential election: "This Court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations, unpled in the operative complaint and unsupported by evidence." courtlistener.com/recap/gov.usco…
Federal judge Brann: "In the United States of America, this
cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state. Our people, laws, and institutions demand more."
Federal judge Matthew Brann ruling in Trump campaign lawsuit on PA presidential election:"At bottom,Plaintiffs have failed to meet their burden to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.Therefore, I grant Defendants’ motions and dismiss Plaintiffs’ action with prejudice."
Senate Judiciary Democrat Feinstein to Matthew Brann at his June 2012 Senate Judiciary confirmation hearing for Middle PA District Court: "You are a very active Republican, probably the most Republican judicial nominee from the Obama White House." Cmte approved him by voice vote.
Brann to Feinstein:"My role as a judge is to simply compartmentalize...I have fairly firm political views on a variety of issues...My job is to factor that out and I think that is actually the most difficult role as a judge, frankly, to not bring your own personal views to bear."
Toomey (R-PA) in May 2012 on nomination of Brann as US District judge for Middle District of PA: “Matthew Brann has a wealth of legal experience gained from more than two decades in private practice, and I look forward to seeing him on the federal bench in Williamsport soon."
Toomey (R-PA) in May 2012 on judicial nominee Brann: "On a bipartisan basis, I have been working closely with Sen. Casey (D-PA) on judicial nominations for our state to help confirm qualified, experienced individuals with unquestioned honesty and integrity."

Trump campaign: "Decision turns out to help us in our strategy to get expeditiously to US Supreme Court. Although we fully disagree w/this opinion,we’re thankful to Obama-appointed judge for making this anticipated decision quickly,rather than simply trying to run out the clock."
Trump campaign: "We will be seeking an expedited appeal to the Third Circuit. There is so much evidence that in PA,Democrats eliminated our opportunity to present 50 witnesses and other evidence that election officials blatantly ignored PA’s law denying independent review."
Trump campaign: "This resulted in 682,777 ballots being cast illegally, wittingly or unwittingly. This is just an extension of the Big Tech, Big Media, Corrupt Democrat censorship of damning facts the American public needs to know."
