After the state of Texas filed a lawsuit with the Supreme Court to challenge unconstitutional election processes in the states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, Jordan Sekulow, an attorney on President Donald Trump’s legal team, said the next step is the “final case.”
The Texas state’s argument for bringing the suit is that the four states changed the rules and procedures for voting through the courts or by executive action, bypassing due process in the state legislatures as dictated by the Constitution.
“The Supreme Court is not only considering what Texas submitted [Tuesday], they are now moving to the next step, which is, ‘We want a response from the named states,'” Sekulow told Newsmax, speaking of the lawsuit named as Texas vs. Pennsylvania.
“This is the case we’ve been talking about to get to SCOTUS. This is the case that determines the outcome, 62 votes from the electoral college, enough to change the outcome of the election,” the attorney continued.
The lawyer assured that in a case of “original jurisdiction,” the supreme court will consider the lawsuit and intervene to assign through the state legislatures four new voters, since the “electors clause” was violated, in addition to “due process” and “equal protection.”
The four states mentioned have until Thursday afternoon to “actively respond” to the allegations of voter fraud in the complaints bill submitted by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
According to Paxton, the lawsuit he drafted is an attempt to protect the integrity of elections and comply with the Constitution.
If other states don’t follow the Constitution and if their state legislature isn’t responsible for overseeing their elections … it affects my state,” the attorney general told Fox News anchor Sean Hannity.
Sekulow said, “The Supreme Court is not just considering what Texas has filed [Tuesday], they are now going the next step, which is to say, ‘We want a response from the states named—Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Again, I think this is very clear.
President Trump referred to the Texas lawsuit through his Twitter account, where he wrote: “We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!”
