Many of President Donald Trump’s allies — both in Congress, in the media and on social media — have called for higher-level intervention into what they allege was widespread voter and ballot fraud in the 2020 election.
Some have called for U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr to get more involved and according to Breitbart, Fox News host Mark Levin is now asking that the United States Supreme Court jump into the mix, as he warned his viewers over the weekend that if SCOTUS doesn’t get involved, America will face a “constitutional crisis.”
On Sunday’s taping of “Life, Liberty & Levin,” Levin pounced on a number of election-related issues which he believes helped former Vice President Joe Biden secure victory, even slamming Pennsylvania for having “abandoned its constitution” by extending the dates that mail-in ballots could be received and counted.
“What we see here is fraud perpetrated against the people of Pennsylvania, against the American people and the Electoral College process by politicians who violated the constitution repeatedly, who have violated the rule of law by a rogue state supreme court,” Levin charged.
Levin then took aim at the Supreme Court’s lack of action, so far, in the post-election legal turmoil.
“The U.S. Supreme Court shouldn’t just sit there and take a pass when in fact it is time for the U.S. Supreme Court to intercede, which is exactly what the petitioners are asking it to do,” Levin said, referencing recent requests by the Trump campaign to have the High Court review some of its election-related cases.
The Fox News host pointed out that the Supreme Court intervened in the 2000 election, ultimately exercising its judicial power to determine the outcome of that election, which ended with George W. Bush as president over his Democratic challenger, Al Gore.
According to USA Today, the Supreme Court dealt Trump and his allies somewhat of a blow over the weekend by moving up a deadline in Republican Rep. Mike Kelly’s lawsuit in which he seeks to overturn the state’s election results. The original deadline was Wednesday, but SCOTUS moved it to Tuesday, which is the “safe harbor” date — a federal cutoff date for states to resolve any open election disputes.
