The Supreme Court has rejected motions to fast-track 8 GOP-led lawsuits.
The fast track was to ensure they were heard before January 20th which is inauguration day.
Not all, but some of these were being led by President Trump.
The U.S. Supreme Court rejected motions to fast-track eight GOP-led lawsuits Monday that challenged President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, including lawsuits led by President Donald Trump and former Trump legal advisor Sidney Powell, effectively killing the post-election litigation by ensuring it won’t be heard before Biden takes office and likely renders the cases moot.
Trump and the GOP had publicly pinned their legal effort to overturn the election results on the 6-3 conservative Supreme Court. “Whether it’s a justice of the Supreme Court or a number of justices of the Supreme Court, let’s see if they have the courage to do what everybody in this country knows is right,” Trump said in December, while legal advisors Jenna Ellis and Rudy Giuliani even painted a loss in Pennsylvania as a good thing because it “help[s] us in our strategy to get expeditiously to the U.S. Supreme Court.” The high court has overwhelmingly rejected the post-election legal push, however, striking down the Pennsylvania GOP case and a Texas-led lawsuit against battleground states. As the post-election cases at the heart of Monday’s orders were filed ahead of Congress’ Jan. 6 meeting to count the electoral votes—the last procedural milestone by which the results could have potentially been overturned—the Supreme Court largely ignored the last-minute rush of litigation, declining to issue orders or making an effort to expedite the cases as Republicans desired and rejecting a lawsuit from Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas).
If these cases were baseless you would hope that the Supreme Court would simply hear them and debunk them.
Pushing them until after the election does nothing to bring the country together.
