Earlier this week, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz volunteered to argue the merits of the Rep. Mike Kelly’s Pennsylvania case that was submitted to the Supreme Court, which would have been amazing to witness given Cruz’s storied legal past and victories in the High Court.
Unfortunately, that fell apart after the Supreme Court rejected the Pennsylvania case.
But there’s new hope that we’ll still get to see Cruz argue what could be one of the most monumental Supreme Court cases in American history, as President Donald Trump has asked the senator to argue the case currently on the Supreme Court docket known as Texas vs. Pennsylvania.
And the best news? According to The New York Times, Cruz agreed.
Not that there was any doubt that he would agree, but I can’t think of a better legal mind and all-around patriot to be the one person who just might be able to pull off a longshot victory and save this great nation from being overtaken by a Biden administration.
The lawsuit, which was filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, targets Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Wisconsin and seeks to void the results of the election in those states, citing that the 2020 election results in those states are “tainted” given the number of last-minute rules the state assemblies came up with to accommodate the COVID-19 pandemic.
News of Trump asking Cruz to get involved came shortly after Trump himself announced that he would “intervene” in the case in an official capacity.
“We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!” Trump tweeted on Wednesday.
Not surprisingly, many “legal experts” on the left have already written off Texas’ SCOTUS case as another wild and misguided attempt by Trump and his allies to overturn the results of an election in multiple states.
“It looks like we have a new leader in the ‘craziest lawsuit filed to purportedly challenge the election’ category,” wrote University of Texas at Austin law professor Steve Vladeck.
While that’s expected, there are also plenty of experts who believe that this case could be Trump’s only real attempt to force some kind of change — even if it’s a longshot. Just getting a case to the Supreme Court is a huge deal and thanks to the U.S. Consitution, if a state files suit against other states, it’s essentially an automatic ticket straight to the High Court for consideration.
The Supreme Court added the case to its docket this week but still hasn’t announced whether or not it will be heard. That news is expected in the very near future, as December 14 is when the Electoral College formally awards votes to the candidates in the first step to sealing the deal on who won.
We can all hope and pray that Cruz gets a shot to shine on the floor of the Supreme Court, as I have a feeling that no matter what happens, he’s going to make a lot of people in this country proud.
