BREAKING: SCOTUS Rejects Texas Lawsuit Against MI, PA, WI, GA

Published

The Supreme Court has rejected the Texas lawsuit against battleground states Michigan, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

In a brief order, the Supreme Court ruled “Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another state conducts its elections.”

It ruled all other claims as moot.

Attorney Generals for 4 battleground states – Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania had asked the Supreme Court to reject the Texas lawsuit seeking to overturn election results in the states.

The lawsuit that was filed by Texas AG Ken Paxton was supported from the Attorney Generals of 17 other states as well as over 100 Republicans in Congress.

The District of Columbia had filed a legal brief on behalf of 22 blue states on Dec. 10 opposing the Texas lawsuit.

The brief signed by DC Solicitor General Loren Alikhan, states “the people have chosen. But Texas, supported by 17 other states, asks this Court to overturn that choice.”

It continues “Amici States urge this Court to reject Texas’s last-minute attempt to throw out the results of an election decided by the people and securely overseen and certified by its sister states.”

President Trump tweeted Friday morning “Now that the Biden Administration will be a scandal plagued mess for years to come, it is much easier for the Supreme Court of the United States to follow the Constitution and do what everybody knows has to be done. They must show great Courage & Wisdom. Save the USA!!!”

Senator Ted Cruz told Axios he does not see the Senate confirming any of Biden’s cabinet nominees at this point.

Cruz said “as long as there’s litigation ongoing, and the election result is disputed, I do not think you will see the Senate act to confirm any nominee.”
