President Trump was waiting for this moment.
And this Supreme Court case could overturn the results of the 2020 election.
Just before midnight on Monday, the state of Texas filed a lawsuit directly with the Supreme Court arguing that the states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin certified fraudulent results based on the fact that all four states illegally changed their rules for mail-in balloting through court rulings or administrative decisions instead of prescribed legislative process.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton argued these states disguised their illegal intentions to open up mail-in voting as an attempt to enhance public safety during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Certain officials in the Defendant States presented the pandemic as the justification for ignoring state laws regarding absentee and mail-in voting. The Defendant States flooded their citizenry with tens of millions of ballot applications and ballots in derogation of statutory controls as to how they are lawfully received, evaluated, and counted. Whether well intentioned or not, these unconstitutional acts had the same uniform effect—they made the 2020 election less secure in the Defendant States. Those changes are inconsistent with relevant state laws and were made by non-legislative entities, without any consent by the state legislatures. The acts of these officials thus directly violated the Constitution,” the lawsuit read.
Texas argued that these four states are appointing rogue and illegal electors that disenfranchise not only their own voters, but also the voters in the other 46 states plus the District of Columbia that played by the rules.
“This case presents a question of law: Did the Defendant States violate the Electors Clause by taking non-legislative actions to change the election rules that would govern the appointment of presidential electors? These non-legislative changes to the Defendant States’ election laws facilitated the casting and counting of ballots in violation of state law, which, in turn, violated the Electors Clause of Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution. By these unlawful acts, the Defendant States have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but their actions have also debased the votes of citizens in Plaintiff State and other States that remained loyal to the Constitution,” the lawsuit continued.
The Constitution sets the Supreme Court as the court of original jurisdiction in disputes between the states.
That means Texas does not have to waste time arguing its case through the lower courts.
President Trump and tens of millions of his supporters have been waiting for a case to make its way to the Supreme Court.
The Texas case is the first argument to reverse what the President’s campaign has presented evidence to prove are the fraudulent results of the 2020 election.
