Infrastructure Security Agency Christopher Krebs and Elections
Commissioner Donald Palmer.

Democrat Gary Peters (D-Mich.) after the Michigan senator accused

Solicitor General Ken Starr if the cases were dismissed for
procedural reasons. Starr agreed and went on to say the best
example of this was the Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss a
Texas lawsuit contesting election results in four battleground
