The state of Texas filed a lawsuit in the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, Dec. 7, asking the court to invalidate the Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin election results.
The lawsuit charged that those states violated the Constitution by making changes to how ballots were cast and counted without legislative approval.
In the lawsuit, a Pacific Economics Group member and a managing director of Berkeley Research Group, LLC (BRG) Los Angeles, Downtown, Charles J. Cicchetti Ph.D. showed that the probability of Democratic candidate Joe Biden winning the popular vote in those four swing states independently given President Trump’s early lead on the morning of Nov. 4, was less than one in a quadrillion.
Cicchetti’s calculation showed Biden’s chances of winning all four states decrease to less than one in a quadrillion to the fourth power.
Chances of Biden winning Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin independently after @realDonaldTrump’s early lead is less than one in a quadrillion:
➡️ 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000
Chances of him winning collectively is “one in a quadrillion to the 4th power”

On Tuesday, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry announced that his state would be joining Texas in the lawsuit.
“Millions of Louisiana citizens, and tens of millions of our fellow citizens in the country, have deep concerns regarding the conduct of the 2020 federal elections,” Landry said in a statement. “Deeply rooted in these concerns is the fact that some states appear to have conducted their elections with a disregard to the U.S. Constitution. Furthermore, many Louisianans have become more frustrated as some in media and the political class try to sidestep legitimate issues for the sake of expediency.”
“Only the U.S. Supreme Court can ultimately decide cases of real controversy among the states under our Constitution,” the statement continues. “That is why the Justices should hear and decide the case which we have joined, representing the citizens of Louisiana.”
Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge also said she would support Texas’s motion before the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Arkansans and Americans across the country have real concerns about the lack of integrity in our federal elections this year,” Rutledge wrote in a statement.
“After reviewing the motion filed by Texas in the U.S. Supreme Court, I have determined that I will support the motion by the State of Texas in all legally appropriate manners. The integrity of our elections is a critical part of our nation, and it must be upheld.”
Seven states have now joined the Texas lawsuit, and more will join in the next few days.
