17 States, President Trump Join Texas Lawsuit in Supreme Court to Invalidate Joe Biden’s Victory

After weeks of sputtering and little success, the legal efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 Election has officially entered into kitchen-sink mode. Seventeen states, all of which voted for President Donald Trump, and President Trump himself have backed the Texas lawsuit that attempts to scrap Biden’s wins in four critical swing states.

Yesterday, Texas’ Republican attorney general, Ken Paxton, issued a lawsuit directly to United States Supreme Court to toss out the results in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Michigan, alleging the sudden changes to their election process is unconstitutional and therefore invalidates their results while requiring delays to the selection of their presidential electors to allow more time to investigate voter fraud.

A day later,  Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia have all backed the lawsuit, believing “the unconstitutional administration of elections” in other states disenfranchises voters in their states and disrupts the sanctity of our elections. 

With mere days before the electors officially vote, this lawsuit may be President Trump’s final attempt at overturning the results, especially after the Supreme Court rejected a GOP lawsuit arguing Pennsylvania’s authorization of widespread mail-in ballots was unconstitutional, which would have shred 2.5 million postal votes, in one sentence-“The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied.”

Blowback instantly slammed the unprecedented lawsuit from the swing states involved in the lawsuit. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel labeled the lawsuit “a publicity stunt,” adding “the Michigan issues raised in this complaint have already been thoroughly litigated and roundly rejected in both state and federal courts – by judges appointed from both political parties.”

Wisconsin’s Democratic attorney general Josh Kaul called the Texas suit “genuinely embarrassing.”

 A spokesperson for the Office of the Attorney General in Georgia told Breitbart News: “With all due respect, the Texas Attorney General is constitutionally, legally and factually wrong about Georgia.”

However, President Trump remains hopeful for this lawsuit, tweeting, “We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!” Without a significant legal victory or any evidence of voter fraud serious enough to flip the election, the Trump legal team desperately needs this lawsuit to succeed if he wishes to retain the Presidency.
