President Trump says he’s disappointed with the Supreme Court’s decision to refuse to hear the Texas case. But he says the battle’s not over.
President Trump vows his campaign will “continue to go forward” with legal challenges surrounding the Nov. 3 election.
The president says “it’s not over” and there are still “numerous local cases.”
“I worry about the country having an illegitimate president, that’s what I worry about, a president that lost and lost badly. This wasn’t like a close election. You look at Georgia. We won Georgia big. We won Pennsylvania big. We won Wisconsin big.”
On Twitter, he said election results should not be certified.
He wrote: “Swing States that have found massive VOTER FRAUD… CANNOT LEGALLY CERTIFY these votes as complete & correct without committing a severely punishable crime.”
Last Friday, Dec. 11, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a case from Texas against four key battleground states over illegitimate voting.
The top court denied to hear the case for a “lack of standing.” It added that Texas did not provide a “judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections.” Other pending motions were dismissed as moot.
The case had received a wide array of support from around 20 states and 100 House lawmakers, among others.
President Trump expressed his disappointment:
“No judge, including the Supreme Court of the United States has had the courage to allow it to be heard.”
Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, says the president shouldn’t have an issue of standing, like Texas had, in these lawsuits.
The Trump team is planning to file new lawsuits in the coming days, which will mimic the one by Texas.
Meanwhile, as the Supreme Court dismissed the Texas case, lawyer Sidney Powell filed an emergency petition with the Supreme Court to hear her case on election fraud in Georgia.
In an exclusive interview with The Epoch Times’ show American Thought Leaders, Powell says President Trump has the authority to appoint a special prosecutor into election interference under a 2018 Executive Order.
She alleged an overwhelming amount of evidence of foreign interference:
Powell’s previously filed lawsuits center on allegations of fraud and corruption involving Dominion Voting machines and software:
“Every machine, every voting machine in the country should be impounded right now, there’s frankly more than enough probable cause to justify that.”
The 2018 Executive Order states “not later than 45 days after the conclusion” of the election, the Director of National Intelligence shall conduct an assessment of any information indicating that foreign actors have interfered with the election.
Powell noted—that gives DNI John Ratcliffe just a few more days to prepare his report—45 days from Nov. 3 is this Friday, Dec. 18.
