The Supreme Court docket simply dismissed the Texas lawsuit to overturn the election
The Supreme Court ruled Texas has no standing and dismissed her case without hearing it to overturn the election.
The Supreme Court denied Texas: “The state of Texas’ s application for permission to file a notice of appeal is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution. Texas has shown no judicial interest in the way another state conducts its elections. All other pending applications are dismissed as in dispute. “
Judges Alito and Thomas made their own statement: “I do not believe that there is any discretion to refuse to lodge a notice of appeal in a case that falls within our original jurisdiction. See Arizona v. California, 589 US ___ (February 24, 2020) (Thomas, J., Dissent). I would therefore grant the request to file the notice of appeal, but would not grant any other relief, and I am not expressing an opinion on any other subject. “
Thomas and Alito would have allowed Texas to file the complaint, which the rest of the court didn’t, but they wouldn’t have given Trump and Texas any relief either, which means there wasn’t a single Supreme Court member ready to do that Throwing away election results in four states to keep Trump in office.
It really is over. Trump’s last appeal to the Supreme Court has gone up in flames and he will step down from office on January 20, 2021 at 12:00 p.m.
