President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Newsmax on Friday that the legal fight over the presidential election results would continue despite the Supreme Court’s rejection of a lawsuit from Texas to delay Electoral College voting because of unconstitutional rule changes in four key states.
“The case wasn’t rejected on the merits, the case was rejected on standing” Giuliani said. “So the answer to that is to bring the case now to the district court by the president, by some of the electors, alleging some of the same facts where there would be standing.”
He continued, “There’s nothing that prevents us from filing these cases immediately in the district court in which the president of course would have standing, some of the electors would have standing in that their constitutional rights have been violated.”
“We’re not finished,” Giuliani added. “Believe me.”
Illegal voting changes
The state of Texas, backed by 17 other states and over 120 House Republicans, alleged that Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia unconstitutionally changed their voting rules around early and mail-in voting and allowed fraud to enter their voting systems.
The suit, brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, argued that Texas has the standing to demand a remedy to these voting problems because illegal voting in other states disenfranchised Texas voters.
The Supreme Court, however rejected hearing the case, arguing that Texas lacked the legal standing necessary to bring such a case.
“The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution,” the justices wrote. “Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections.”
Giuliani called on a judicial court to have the courage to take the case.
“That’s a terrible, terrible mistake,” he said of the high court’s refusal to hear the case. “These facts will remain an open sore in our history unless they don’t get resolved (sic). They need to be heard, they need to be aired and somebody needs to make a decision on whether they’re true or false and some court’s going to have the courage to make that decision.”
Trump also responded to the court’s decision on Friday.
“The Supreme Court really let us down,” he tweeted. “No Wisdom, No Courage!”
