Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi slammed the vote counting process in Pennsylvania and said officials are “still not in compliance” with an order allowing observation by President Donald Trump’s campaign.

Bondi, along with Trump senior adviser Corey Lewandowski, delivered an update Thursday on the appellate court order that allowed Republicans to observe poll workers counting ballots in a Philadelphia building. They spoke to reporters outside of the building about the latest on how the order was being undermined by Democrats.

“We wanted to give you an update. They are still not in compliance. Our votes are being suppressed, we cannot count the votes properly,” Bondi said.

“What’s happening is, they have moved the barriers up to six feet but they took away the ballot machines that were in the front row and moved them to the back of the building,” she explained.

“It’s unbelievable what they’re trying to do to our votes that have been legally cast, whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican. Those legal votes must be tabulated. They’re not doing that…they’re trying to drown us out now where we can’t be heard,” Bondi added, referring to the protest going on in the area.

“We are not going to stand for this. We are not going anywhere. They are defying a court order by a judge and this is not the last of this,” the Republican former prosecutor vowed.

GOP poll watchers were barred from verifying mail-in and absentee ballots as the nation’s presidential race hangs in the balance. Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes are in limbo as hundreds of thousands of mail ballots remain to be counted.

The Trump team filed a lawsuit against election officials and were handed a victory Thursday morning allowing immediate access for Republican observers.

Lewandowski stepped up after Bondi’s remarks later Thursday, revealing that a private attorney inside the building had informed the Trump team that “she would determine if the court order was valid or not.”

“The court order is in effect. They will not give us access and the sheriff has decided not to come down here to enforce that court order,” he said, after noting that he would be releasing a video shortly.

“What is going on in this city? What are you hiding?” Lewandowski demanded. “Open up the doors! Let us in…whether you voted for Donald Trump or you voted for Joe Biden, everyone has a right to know what’s transpiring here. This makes it look like a kangaroo court! We deserve better and we’re not leaving until we witness every single vote that transpires here.”

There was some further confusion Thursday as a report claimed the Democrat-dominated state Supreme Court reversed the lower court’s ruling, but that was soon refuted by a Supreme Court spokesperson.

But by Thursday afternoon, it seems Democrats are clearly on a mission.
