The U.S. Supreme Court announced the new distribution of the circuits among the nine justices and will serve the circuits in which key states for the developing presidential election are located.
Thus, Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, and Clarence Thomas will preside over the circuits that correspond to Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, respectively, according to the order that took effect on Nov.20.
These assignments could be considered fortunate for the Republicans, where there is evidence of numerous irregularities in the vote count and lawsuits for apparent fraud.
Each justice initially deals with emergency appeals arising from the area covered, an example being the emergency request for an injunction from the Republicans to Justice Samuel Alito, for electoral problems in Pennsylvania, who granted it.
The changes in the Supreme Court may cause some agitation when considering the pending lawsuits against the electoral process. Eighteen days after the election, it is not clear who will continue in the White House for the next four years.
Nevertheless, the prevailing mood is that the changes will be positive in order to restore transparency in the electoral process.
One Twitter user commented, “I don’t quite understand. Will they look at the fraud allegations and evidence, and will they also decide if the state goes for T [Trump] or B [Biden], as a result (or not) of the lawsuits? If it’s the latter, it’s only a matter of time before Trump wins,” wrote @ars_usd2.

One more person alluded to the mention made by lawyer Sidney Powell, linked to the legal team representing President Trump, to the mythical Kraken monster, from Norwegian mythology.
For Powell, the gigantic dimensions of corruption presented in the elections deserve that name.
The user @j_archey considers that the justices’ assignments address the demands presented by the Trump campaign.
“And that my friends is what you would call the Kraken,” wrote @j_archey.
Powell also referred to the fraudulent cases by describing them as “despicable fraud” in favor of Democratic candidate, Joe Biden.
“There has been a massive and coordinated effort to steal this election from us, the people of the United States of America, to delegitimize and destroy the votes for Donald Trump. To manufacture votes for Joe Biden,” Powell said in a dialogue with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Nov. 8.
