Supreme Court Rejects Baseless Texas Lawsuit To Overturn Biden’s Victory, End
Of The Line For Trump's Election Bid


It’s the final nail in President Trump’s election coffin.

The Supreme Court on Friday tossed out a long-shot lawsuit to overturn Joe
Biden’s election, effectively leaving Trump without any further legal
recourse in his baseless bid to subvert American democracy.

Seven of the top court’s members, including recently Trump-appointed Justice
Amy Coney Barrett, joined together in ruling that the lawsuit filed by Texas
Attorney General Ken Paxton should be dismissed because it failed to show “a
judicially cognizable interest” for invalidating all election results in
Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, two of the court’s other
conservatives, were the only dissenters in writing they would’ve liked to
hear Paxton’s lawsuit.

But Alito and Thomas wrote they would not have granted any “other relief” in
the action, meaning they would not have entertained Paxton’s extraordinary
request to throw out the four states’ 62 electoral votes for Biden in favor
of having local Republican legislators appoint ones who support Trump.

The Electoral College will meet on Monday to officially certify Biden’s
election.

Mitch McTurtle stacking the Supreme Court didn't quite work out as planned.
