On Friday, the Supreme Court of the United States declined to hear a lawsuit filed by the state of Texas that asked the court to rule that the election results in four battleground states must be overturned.
In the brief order issued by the court, they said that Texas lacked standing in the case and all other points were moot.
Mr. Trump took to Twitter to express his sentiments: “The Supreme Court really let us down! No Wisdom, No Courage!”
On Saturday, he claimed he had “won the election in a landslide” and later that day claimed “The Supreme Court had ZERO interest in the merits of the greatest voter fraud ever perpetrated on the United States of America. All they were interested in is “standing,” which makes it very difficult for the President to present a case on the merits. 75,000,000 votes!”
Mr. Trump has appointed three of the nine judges on the court. He also appointed Milwaukee federal judge Brett H. Ludwig who wrote a scathing rebuke of a lawsuit filed in Wisconsin, seeking to overturn that state’s electoral outcome. Judge Ludwif, who has only been on the federal bench for three months, allowed a day-long hearing for the Trump campaign to present their best legal arguments.
They did and the judge found them without merit.
“This is an extraordinary case,” Judge Ludwig wrote in his ruling. “A sitting president who did not prevail in his bid for re-election has asked for federal court help in setting aside the popular vote based on disputed election administration issues he plainly could have raised before the vote occurred.
The ruling concluded: “This Court has allowed plaintiff the chance to make his case and he has lost on the merits. In his reply brief, plaintiff ‘asks that the Rule of Law be followed.’ It has been.”
Today, the electoral college will make the election official. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who received 81,000,000 votes, have won.
