Democrats thought that President Joe Biden’s installation in the White House would mean the end of any probing into their election misbehavior — but the game isn’t over yet.
The Supreme Court has agreed to consider several crucial lawsuits regarding the November election, including a suit led by pro-Trump lawyers Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, as well as Republican Rep. Mike Kelly’s (R-PA) lawsuit against his home state.
Though the high court denied requests to take on the cases ahead of Joe Biden’s inauguration — to the extreme disappointment and displeasure of Trump and his supporters — it’s still critical that the court work through the challenges due to the potential of far-reaching impacts to future elections.
Trump lawyer John Eastman told the Washington Examiner on Friday that his PA election lawsuit — which concerns mail-in voting provisions that are alleged to have been a ploy to manipulate the outcome of the election — “remains important and in need of the court’s review.”
Kelly’s lawyer Greg Teufel confirmed to the Examiner that the Pennsylvania Rep. has no intention of dropping his lawsuit either.
However, supporters of the SCOTUS challenge will likely have to wait months before any meaningful arguments or decisions will be made, as the court still must vote in February to take up the relevant cases.
If the court opts to do so, the cases will likely not be heard until October of 2021.
