‘Brilliant Move’: Texas Sues GA, MI, PA & WI At Supreme Court Over Election

Shortly before midnight on Monday, the Texas attorney general filed a lawsuit with the Supreme Court challenging the election procedures in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin on the grounds that they violate the Constitution. Immediately, the lawsuit was described as “brilliant” by legal scholars for two main reasons, and Democrats are in panic mode. You’ll love this.

Texas had the authority to approach the Supreme Court directly because Article III provides that it is the court of “first impression” on subjects where it has original jurisdiction, such as disputes between two or more states.

This is one reason why legal scholars are calling this lawsuit “brilliant” and “genius.” Usually, for a lawsuit to get to the Supreme Court, it first must be heard at lower courts. Then, the plaintiffs have the option to appeal a case to the Supreme Court.

As you can imagine, this is time-consuming. And when time is of the essence in challenging an election, Texas goes directly to the Supreme Court in one “brilliant” move.

The other big reason this is such a genius move is right in the lawsuit itself. 

“Texas argues that these states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures,” Joel Pollak, a Harvard-trained attorney wrote via Breitbart.

Additionally, Texas argues that there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause. Finally, Texas argues that there were “voting irregularities” in these states as a result of the above.

Texas is asking the Supreme Court to order the states to allow their legislatures to appoint their electors.

It just so happens that these state legislatures all have GOP majorities.

Americans took to social media, and “God Bless Texas” started trending.

“AMERICAN by birth, TEXAN by the grace of God! God Bless the GREAT State of TEXAS!” tweeted Ronny Jackson, who is Texas’ Congressman-elect and the former Navy physician for President Donald Trump.

“God Bless Texas. That’s it, that’s the tweet!!” posted “Sportsman Nate.”

“Texas filed a lawsuit directly with the Supreme Court last night challenging the election procedures in GA, MI, PA, and WI on the grounds that they violate the Constitution. God Bless Texas!” tweeted “Texas T.”

“Texas, Our Texas! Your freeborn single star, Sends out its radiance to nations near and far, Emblem of Freedom! It sets our hearts aglow, With thoughts of San Jacinto and glorious Alamo. God Bless Texas!” tweeted Cindy Cormier.

But that’s not all. Attorney Sidney Powell has several lawsuits making their way through the lower courts. Talking to Newsmax on Monday night, the attorney who has been nicknamed “the Kraken” detailed the outstanding cases.

“We’re going to proceed immediately with an emergency appeal, and we expect to get relief in the Supreme Court,” Powell stated.

“We also have a case out of Michigan that needs to go [to SCOTUS]. A case out of Arizona may very well wind up there. There should be at least three states for the Supreme Court that has enough electoral votes to change the outcome by the end of the week,” Powell said.

Additionally, Trump’s legal team has lawsuits making their way through the lower courts in several states, even though some of the weaker cases have been dismissed. Trump campaign Attorney Jenna Ellis spoke to Maria Bartiromo on Tuesday morning to discuss the upcoming deadlines.

“Even Justice Ginsburg in the election contest in Bush v. Gore in 2000 recognized that the date of ultimate significance is actually January 6,” Ellis said. “And that’s the date that Congress counts the votes of the delegates.”

“So, although we have the safe harbor deadline of today and the meeting of the Electoral College next week on December 14, the ultimate date of significance is January 6,” Ellis said. “So, I do think that our claims and all those of different entities like Rep. Mike Kelly, and others, those claims can still be litigated and continue.”

There is so much misinformation out there being propelled by the Democrats and their media comrades. Texas has set the precedent for other red-state attorney generals to also join in and make a case to the Supreme Court.

States have a duty to their citizens to ensure their votes aren’t canceled out by fraud — if it did occur. So, God bless Texas for paving the way for other states to join in this fight.
