18 States & Trump Team Join Texas in Supreme Court Case Challenging Election Outcomes in 4 Key States

18 States & Trump Team Join Texas in Supreme Court
Case Challenging Election Outcomes in 4 Key States 1

There’s been a big gain for President Trump’s legal effort to
challenge vote irregularities in the election – 18 states have
now joined Texas in its Supreme Court bid that could change the
election outcome. �

President Trump’s legal team is also joining the Supreme Court
bid by Texas to reject questionable ballots in four essential swing

Attorneys general in the 18 other states have now signed on to
the suit that charges that state officials in Pennsylvania,
Wisconsin, Michigan, and Georgia changed election procedures which
is something only state legislatures are allowed to do.

The 18 states joining the case include Alabama, Arkansas,
Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri,
Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South
Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia. Arizona filed a
separate brief in support.
On his radio program “Jay Sekulow Liveâ€, attorney Jay Sekulow
said, “This is the most significant of the cases filed and it’s
the most significant because it is… completely
outcome-determinative. What does that mean? It means that if the
court rules in favor of Texas, those four states, the states named
in the complaint would in fact have their state legislators
determine the outcome, they would pick the electors.â€

Several things would have to happen for the case to succeed –
that’s if the court decides to hear the case.

The justices would have to:

  •   block certification of the Electoral College vote
  •   determine that massive amounts of votes are illegal
  •   tell the states to re-tally and resubmit their votes

The court could also let every state legislature decide who won
and then put the election in the hands of the House of
Representatives. Since Republican state delegations outnumber the
Democrats in the House, that could give Trump the victory.

However, there are questions as to whether the justices will
hear the case.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told Fox News, “In a state on
state suit, our only place to go is the US Supreme Court, we
can’t be heard anywhere else. Other lawsuits started at the
district court level and they have a right to be heard at least
once, whether they have a good case or a bad case. So our request
is we want to be heard. The only place we can go is the US Supreme
Court. And so we’re pleading with the US Supreme Court to please
hear our case. Give us a chance at least to argue what we think is
right. We want to argue the Constitution.â€
Zack Smith, a legal expert with the Heritage Foundation, tells CBN
News, “Well basically Texas is asking, if the states have not
certified their electoral results yet, they’re asking the Supreme
Court to order those states to conduct a new election. And if the
states have already certified their electoral results, they’re
asking the Supreme Court to order those to have state legislatures
to appoint the electors regardless of the election outcome. So it
would certainly have a very dramatic impact, a very drastic impact,
and frankly could overturn the results of the elections in these
four states during this past election cycle. So it’s a very big
ask and one I think the Supreme Court is very unlikely to
The four states have until 3 p.m. today to respond to the Texas
suit. President Trump has asked Sen. Ted Cruz to represent him
before the court if the Supreme Court agrees to hear the case.

Here are some excerpts from the
Texas case
 filed with the Supreme Court:

“Using the COVID-19 pandemic as a justification, government
officials in the defendant states of Georgia, Michigan, and
Wisconsin, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (collectively,
“Defendant Statesâ€), usurped their legislatures’ authority
and unconstitutionally revised their state’s election statutes.
They accomplished these statutory revisions through executive fiat
or friendly lawsuits, thereby weakening ballot integrity. Finally,
these same government officials flooded the Defendant States with
millions of ballots to be sent through the mails, or placed in drop
boxes, with little or no chain of custody and, at the same
time, weakened the strongest security measures protecting the
integrity of the vote—signature verification and witness

“Presently, evidence of material illegality in the 2020
general elections held in Defendant States grows daily. And, to be
sure, the two presidential candidates who have garnered the most
votes have an interest in assuming the duties of the Office of
President without a taint of impropriety threatening the perceived
legitimacy of their election. However, 3 U.S.C. § 7 requires that
presidential electors be appointed on December 14, 2020. That
deadline, however, should not cement a potentially illegitimate
election result in the middle of this storm—a storm that is of
the Defendant States’ own making by virtue of their
own unconstitutional actions.† 

“This Court is the only forum that can delay the deadline for
the appointment of presidential electors under 3 U.S.C. §§ 5, 7.
To safeguard public legitimacy at this unprecedented moment and
restore public trust in the presidential election, this Court
should extend the December 14, 2020 deadline for Defendant
States’ certification of presidential electors to allow these
investigations to be completed. Should one of the two leading
candidates receive an absolute majority of the presidential
electors’ votes to be cast on December 14, this would finalize
the selection of our President. The only date that is mandated
under the Constitution, however, is January 20, 2021. U.S. CONST.
