Supreme Court declines to hear suit challenging Pennsylvania election results: Report

In a shocking decision, the U.S. Supreme Court has opted not to hear the latest election-related lawsuit out of Pennsylvania, cementing indications that the high court will not take up any challenges to the 2020 race, according to Newsmax.

Writing Thursday, Newsmax’s Brian Trusdell said the Supreme Court’s attitude toward President Donald Trump and his allies’ repeated election challenges has largely put an end to any hope they may have had to overturn the election. Democrat Joe Biden was voted the winner 306–232 by the Electoral College earlier this month, according to CBS News.

With the court system apparently not interested in auditing the election and its results, presumptive President-elect Joe Biden’s path to the White House seems clear.

SCOTUS makes its position clear

Indeed, at this point, it seems the court system would not listen to President Trump or his legal team no matter what evidence they brought.

According to Newsmax, the Supreme Court declined earlier this month to hear a lawsuit brought by the state of Texas that sought to block the electoral votes of states that had changed their election rules in a manner that Texas’ attorney general said compromised their results.

According to Fox News, the high court said of the suit: “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. Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.”

The court apparently believes states don’t have an interest in other states’ election processes — even if they could affect a national outcome. With that and many other devastating losses, it seems the court system is dead-set against the president.

GOP turns on Trump

Even many in the Republican Party seem to have bought into the narrative that the election was totally fair and free, earning them the ire of the president.

In the latest suit, the Trump campaign had asked the SCOTUS to look into a decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that it said “raised serious concerns whether these were partisan attempts to assist the Democratic candidate whose campaign strategy of utilizing mail ballots was well publicized, in comparison to President’s Trump’s well-known strategy to encourage in-person voting,” as Newsmax reported.

Though any hope of overturning that ruling may have been squashed by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to pass on the case, the president indicated as recently as Christmas Eve that he still believes the 2020 election was rigged.
