Trump suffers biggest judicial loss in attempt to overturn the US Presidential election
Outgoing Us President Donald Trump suffered his greatest loss in his final attempt to subvert the will of the American voters. Over 83 million people casted their votes to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in a record turnout from Democrats and Republicans in what was called the most important election in American history.
Trump’s refusal to accept the election results and claims of widespread voter manipulation has casted doubt on the legitimacy of President Elect Biden. In the latest attempt by the Republican Party saw Texas attorney general file a lawsuit in the US Supreme court to overturn the election results in four battleground states that voted in favour of President Elect Biden.
Had the US Supreme court taken up the case Texas V. Pennsylvania Et AL would have been a major blow to a democracy that has been dismantled under the Trump administration. Luckily for the American people and the free world, this disastrous outcome was denied.
TEXAS V. PENNSYLVANIA, ET AL.
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.
Statement of Justice Alito, with whom Justice Thomas joins: In my view, we do not have discretion to deny the filing of a bill of complaint in a case that falls within our original jurisdiction. See Arizona v. California, 589 U. S. _
(Feb. 24, 2020) (Thomas, J., dissenting). I would therefore grant the motion to file the bill of complaint but would not grant other relief, and I express no view on any other issue.” United States Supreme Court
