President Donald Trump and everyone supporting his legal efforts to expose alleged ballot and voter fraud in the 2020 election were dealt a serious blow on Friday as the U.S. Supreme Court issued an order rejecting a case brought by Texas against a number of key swing states.
According to Fox News, Trump attorney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani made clear during a Friday evening interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the Trump campaign may have lost that Supreme Court battle, but they’re not done fighting the war.
“The people of this country are entitled to a hearing on this,” Giuliani said. “They should have at least given us a hearing so that we can present our facts and not just pushed it off to the side so no one would ever get to hear these facts.”
The challenge, which was brought to the steps of the High Court thanks to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, sought to overturn the results of the 2020 election in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin and Michigan, citing that those states unlawfully changed their election laws to accommodate the mail-in absentee ballot surge, among other issues.
The Supreme Court could have agreed to hear the case so that they could rule on the issue in favor of or against Texas, but instead, as some legal experts predicted, they rejected it outright, which didn’t give Texas, Trump or any of his legal surrogates a chance to make their case.
The case garnered immediate support from at least 17 other Republican-led states along with 126 sitting Republican lawmakers who all filed briefs of support. It was also seen by tens of millions of Trump supporters as one of the last-ditch efforts to throw a wrench in the gears of the 2020 election results.
The High Court’s ruling included a quick explanation as to why they rejected the case outright.
“Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections,” the ruling read. “All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.”
According to Newsmax, Giuliani believes that there’s still a pathway to turn this election upside down, pointing out that the case wasn’t rejected by the Supreme Court on merits, rather, it was rejected on standing.
“The answer to that is to bring the case now in the district court by the president, by some of the electors, alleging the same facts where there would be standing and therefore get a hearing,” the former mayor said.
