Since this story has received little coverage in the media, I wanted to “brief” you on what is going on at The Supreme Court of the US with the election.
The first case is the PA state representative Michael Kelly’s suit against mail-in ballots. Associate Justice Samuel Alito denied a hearing for emergency relief after all parties filed their briefs. The case however is continuing .
Secondly, we have the action brought by Texas’ Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton filed on Dec. 7th. This suits alleges that the four battleground states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin changed election laws unconstitutionally by not going through the state legislature. These actions therefore harmed Texans right to a free and fair election.
The president — through his new lawyer constitutional scholar John Eastman — have filed to be considered an intervenor in the suit. An intervenor is a non-party wishing to join an ongoing litigation. The intervenor must show how they were harmed and the high court can decide whether to allow that status or not.
Also 17 (hmm) states have filed amicus briefs in support of the Texas suit. The states that backed the suit are: MO, AL, AR, FL, NE, ND, OK, IN, KS, LA, MS, MT, SC, SD, TN, UT and WV.
On Thursday at 9 AM Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin are expected to file their responses to the court. Since this is an original case — not ruling on a lower court appeal — all nine justices will weigh in on whether to let this case go forward.
The Texas case does not allege voter fraud or rigged voting systems. It is strictly a constitutional case where governors or other state officials other than legislators put in new voting measures just prior to the Nov. 3 presidential election.
