On Friday, the Supreme Court dismissed a Trump-backed lawsuit that was seeking to block Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin from voting in the Electoral College.
On Saturday, President Trump said, “WE HAVE JUST BEGUN TO FIGHT!!! IF Biden gets in, nothing will happen to Hunter or Joe. Barr will do nothing, and the new group of partisan killers coming in will quickly kill it all.”
“Same thing with Durham. We caught them cold, spying, treason & more (the hard part), but “Justice” took too long. Will be DOA!”
“Justices Alito and Thomas say they would have allowed Texas to proceed with its election lawsuit.” (quoting Sean Hannity) This is a great and disgraceful miscarriage of justice. The people of the United States were cheated, and our Country disgraced. Never even given our day in Court!,” said Trump.
In response to the ruling, the Chairman of the Texas GOP Allen West released a statement saying:
“The Supreme Court, in tossing the Texas lawsuit that was joined by seventeen states and 106 US congressman, has decreed that a state can take unconstitutional actions and violate its own election law. Resulting in damaging effects on other states that abide by the law, while the guilty state suffers no consequences. This decision establishes a precedent that says states can violate the US constitution and not be held accountable. This decision will have far-reaching ramifications for the future of our constitutional republic,” said West, “Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution. The Texas GOP will always stand for the Constitution and for the rule of law even while others don’t.”
Friday’s decision was the second this week by the Supreme Court regarding requests by Republicans to get the nation’s highest court involved in the election results. The court had rejected an appeal from Republicans in Pennsylvania on Tuesday.
The Electoral College will meet on Monday, Dec. 14, to formally elect Biden as president.
