BREAKING News everyone!
President Trump has asked Texas Senator Ted Cruz to argue the case on behalf of both himself, and of The American people in front of the Supreme Court.
Ted Cruz has been a warrior on the front lines this year, taking the fight to the likes of Jack Dorsey and Mark Cuckerberg, for thier sustained censorship against conservatives.
Here is what we know:
The Daily Wire reported this:
President Donald Trump has asked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to argue Texas’ election lawsuit in front of the United States Supreme Court if the nation’s highest court decides to take up the case.
The lawsuit, filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, seeks to invalidate the election results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin because, as Paxton alleges, those states exploited “the COVID-19 pandemic to justify ignoring federal and state election laws and unlawfully enacting last-minute changes, thus skewing the results of the 2020 General Election.”
Trump asked Cruz “if he would be willing to make oral arguments in the case should it reach the Supreme Court,” and Cruz agreed to do so, The New York Times reports. “Before he joined the Senate in 2013, Mr. Cruz argued before the Supreme Court nine times, representing Texas in most of those cases in his role as the state’s solicitor general.”
The Blaze also had this to say:
The suit seeks to delay the Electoral College vote until nationwide investigations into potential voter fraud are completed. President Trump and his campaign have filed dozens of lawsuits in numerous states contesting the results of the election that mainstream media has roundly declared for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
On Monday, Cruz offered to argue an election lawsuit spearheaded by Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Kelly (R), if the Supreme Court agreed to take it up. But the high court denied the case the next day.
Cruz has argued several cases before the Supreme Court in the past, most when he served as solicitor general for the state of Texas. As of this writing, he has not issued a public response to The Times' report, nor has the president.
