The U.S. Supreme Court has given Pennsylvania a deadline of two days after the presidential inauguration to respond to a challenge to the outcome of the 2020 election.

“This means that by the time [Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy] Boockvar and the others the Trump campaign is seeking to take to the Supreme Court even respond to the petition, president-elect Joe Biden will already be sworn in,” Fox News noted.

President Trump held a lead of more than 700,000 votes in Pennsylvania shortly after the polls closed. But after huge “dumps” of ballots overnight almost exclusively for Biden arrived, the Democrat suddenly moved into the lead.

The justices said Boockvar has until Jan. 22 to respond. President Trump’s campaign had asked for the court to set the deadline for this week.
