All hell broke loose in the White House.
President Trump could not believe the news he was handed.
Donald Trump was red with rage after one Supreme Court setback.
The Supreme Court announced it would not hear the state of Texas challenging Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin’s illegal expansion of no excuse mail-in voting.
Seven of the justices argued the state of Texas—and the 18 other states that signed on to the lawsuit—lacked standing to bring the case.
“The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution. Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot,” the court wrote in an unsigned opinion.
Justices Thomas and Alito would have heard the case because the Supreme Court holds original jurisdiction over disputes between the states, but wrote that they would not have granted any of the relief Texas sought to stop the certification of what state Attorney General Ken Paxton claimed was an illegal slate of electors to the Electoral College.
“Statement of Justice Alito, with whom Justice Thomas joins: In my view, we do not have discretion to deny the filing of a bill of complaint in a case that falls within our original jurisdiction. See Arizona v. California, 589 U. S. ___ (Feb. 24, 2020) (Thomas, J., dissenting). I would therefore grant the motion to file the bill of complaint but would not grant other relief, and I express no view on any other issue,” the opinion added.
President Trump fumed about this decision and expressed outrage that his campaign and its allies were denied their day in court to present their evidence of mass fraud and a rigged election.
“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!” the President wrote on social media.
President Trump blasted the Supreme Court for falling back on the excuse of “standing” not to hear the case and refusing to rule on the merits of the evidence and arguments.
The effective definition of standing is whatever the Supreme Court wants and the justices use it when they want to duck handing down an opinion on a politically fraught case.
President Trump said it was important not just for him that the Supreme Court rule on the evidence of a rigged election, but also because the President was really arguing on behalf of the 75 million Americans that voted for him and deserved a real answer about the legitimacy of the 2020 election.
“The Supreme Court had ZERO interest in the merits of the greatest voter fraud ever perpetrated on the United States of America. All they were interested in is ‘standing’, which makes it very difficult for the President to present a case on the merits. 75,000,000 votes!” President Trump added.
