President Donald Trump and his legal team haven’t experienced many victories so far in their attempts to prove that widespread voter and ballot fraud took place in the 2020 election.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz offered his assistance this week, vowing to argue the merits of the case in Pennsylvania on behalf of the plaintiffs if the Supreme Court agrees to hear the case, The Hill reported.
The news comes as a number of state deadlines for vote certification and the Electoral College process are on the immediate horizon, leaving little time for Trump’s allies to take a final stand.
Ready to fight
Cruz, who has a long and distinguished legal career — even notching several wins in the Supreme Court — wrote in a Monday tweet to the president that he’s “ready to present the oral argument” if SCOTUS agrees to take the Pennsylvania case.
Cruz also publicly pressured the Supreme Court to hear the lawsuit, which was brought against the state of Pennsylvania by Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) and two other plaintiffs who claim Pennsylvania violated its own constitution and that the state’s vote certification should be voided.
“Because of the importance of the legal issues presented, I’ve publicly urged #SCOTUS to hear the case brought by Congressman Mike Kelly, congressional candidate Sean Parnell & state rep. candidate Wanda Logan challenging the constitutionality of the POTUS election results in PA,” Cruz tweeted.
Cruz slammed the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for dismissing Kelly’s case based on procedural hang-ups, calling out the court’s “gamesmanship,” Newsmax reported.
“Even more persuasively, the plaintiffs point out that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has also held that plaintiffs don’t have standing to challenge an election law until after the election, meaning that the court effectively put them in a Catch-22: before the election, they lacked standing; after the election, they’ve delayed too long,” Cruz said.
During his show on Fox Business, host Lou Dobbs slammed White House immigration czar Stephen Miller for not cementing Cruz’s generous offer
“Ted Cruz has stepped up to say he’ll argue before the Supreme Court. Why on God’s green Earth wouldn’t the White House jump on it?” Dobbs asked Miller.
When Miller began to respond, Dobbs cut him off and demanded that the White House use every tool they can dig up, including Cruz’s impressive legal mind.
Unfortunately, Trump supporters won’t have a chance to witness the glory of Cruz arguing the merits of what would surely be a landmark case, as the Supreme Court rejected the Pennsylvania challenge in a late-breaking Tuesday night update, according to NPR.
