Trump’s Legal Team Considering Alternate Options After Supreme Court Rejects Texas Election Suit

Attorneys on President Donald Trump’s legal team, Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, shared on Friday that the team is considering filing separate lawsuits to district courts in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s rejection of a lawsuit from Texas to challenge the 2020 election results in four battleground states. The two attorneys also called for courage from the courts to allow hearings on the lawsuits.

Justices on the nation’s highest court late Friday denied the Lone Star state’s request to sue Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin. They opined that Texas lacked legal standing—or capability—to sue under the Constitution because it has not shown a valid interest to intervene in how other states handle their elections.

In an interview with Newsmax, Giuliani called the court’s decision a “terrible terrible mistake.”

“Basically the courts are saying they want to stay out of this, they don’t want to give us a hearing, they don’t want the American people to hear the facts,” the former New York City mayor said. “These facts will remain an open sore in our history unless they get resolved. They need to be heard they need to be aired and somebody needs to make a decision on whether they’re true or false. And some courts are going to have to have the courage to make that decision.”

“The case wasn’t rejected on the merits the case was rejected on standing,” Giuliani said. “The answer to that is to bring the case now to the district court by the president by some of electors alleging the same facts where there would be standing and therefore get a hearing.”

“There’s nothing that prevents us from filing these cases immediately in the district court, in which the president would have standing,” he continued. “Some of the electors would have standing in that their constitutional rights have been violated.”

Ellis, a Trump campaign senior legal adviser, told Newsmax that there is still a “line of attack.”

“The mayor said that we’ve contemplated filing this as separate lawsuit in district court because obviously the president himself would have standing. It’s amazing to think that these other states, these voters who are disenfranchised, wouldn’t,” she said.

She signaled that the team still has time up until Jan. 6 when Congress officially counts the Electoral College votes.

“That date in January. That’s the date of ultimate significance. And the Supreme Court has recognized that,” she said. “We still have time, the state legislatures still have time to do the right thing. They can inquire, they can hold hearings, they can reclaim their delegates, and they should and I hope that now all of the evidence we have brought forth in these hearings will give them the inspiration and courage that they need to act.”

Ellis said that what has transpired is “a moral failure” across all three branches of government.

“First you have the executive branch. The problem there is that they changed the rules. We know that, we have the clear evidence that shows that,” she said. “Then the state legislators—there are significant number of them in the swing states that want to do the right thing, they want to exercise their Article II authority, but it’s been leadership that’s refusing to do the constitutionally appropriate thing.”

She called the Supreme Court’s decision one that appears to be “on a political whim.”

“How they could pass on this I think is shocking. I think it’s morally outrageous,” she said.

“I think that regardless of the outcome here we’re going to continue to do the right thing,” Ellis added. “President Trump is courageous, he is standing for truth, the Constitution, election integrity, and it is always a fight that is worth fighting.”

Giuliani stressed the need for the courts to hear evidence filed by lawsuits challenging election results.

“These facts need to be heard,” he said. “Because this kind of voter fraud can continue to go on if it is not nipped in the bud. If we don’t stand up to it, if we allow the big media, the big tech, the Democrat politicians, and the Washington elite—if we allow them to roll over this, it’s going to get worse and worse and worse.

“This is the worst in our history so far, and it’s got to be stopped. And I think the only person who has the courage to stand up to it is Donald Trump. We’re not finished, believe me.”

    1. A few words from Jim Stone:

      Evil people who stole the election and DID have the power to put Biden in (if no one did anything about it) tried to put Biden in with a vote they knew was rigged. As a result, good people “put Trump in” but do not have the power to seat Trump directly. However, after they did that, it challenged the vote of the bad people and Biden is NOT GOING IN. The electoral college vote was nullified yesterday and legal avenues were opened up that will in the end put Trump in. THIS IS NOT HEARSAY, THERE IS PROOF: That proof is when Gretchen Whitmer had 200 police mob the capitol building to prevent the Republican electors from arriving to cast the counter vote against the fraud vote. IF THE COUNTER VOTE DID NOT MATTER, GRETCHEN WOULD NEVER HAVE DONE THAT.

  1. “Hard to disagree …. but I still think the momentum is there and since there has been no ballot reform …. any ‘fix’ could work as well for him as it did for the Dems in 2018, especially since he has the tribe working behind the scenes.”

    “I can no longer stand with this gullible sap who should have known better. He allowed himself to be played by Bibi. I would rather have a real American president than an Israeli stooge. I can no longer endorse him.”

    “After having tolerated his previous pro-Israel moves —the Embassy to Jerusalem, Golan Heights to Israel, defunding the UN Palestinian-refugee effort and the expanded definition of ‘anti-Semitism’— this for me is the last straw. I can no longer support this Netanyahu-stooge for President of the United States.”

  2. More from Stone and a recent Trump tweet:

    Rumor: Trump will invoke an executive order that will destroy the deep state, and he needed to prove treason all the way to the top – the supreme court.
    Gee, that rumor is looking somewhat solid after this tweet:

    1. This is an answer and it’s an answer for WE THE PEOPLE. It’s in our hands….not the hands of compromised judges and lawyers and politicians. It’s clear, it’s constitutional and it’s OURS! We do not have to wait for decisions. We make the decision. Do we have the courage? Or are we all keyboard f’ing warriors running from what may be the last chance to save this Republic?

      DO SOMETHING FOR KEERICED SAKES BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.

    1. It’s obvious to me, given all that has transpired in recent months, that the USA is beyond repair.

      Why would anyone want to preserve the criminal and thoroughly corrupt Zionist Occupied US Government?

      This should be a moment of clarity.

      Mass secession would be a relief.

      1. Excuse me, Ralph, you don’t even live here, do you? Why would secession be a relief to you then?

        Why ARE you so enthralled with American politics? Your gadfly shtick has aged out.

        1. Here’s a news flash for you Toni:

          It doesn’t matter where I live.

          And just so you know, if the criminal US government disappeared tomorrow,

          90 percent of the world community would breath a sigh of relief.

          The only people who would miss it are the Jews who control it. And maybe you.

          But I frankly doubt that you would miss it.

          Thank you for your thoughtful comment.

            I have heard that those with TDS are prone to fits of hyperbole.
            There’s a new vaccine that’s being developed called Bidenmicin.
            One dose and it allows you to see what the world and country will be
            like if gropin/gaffin’ Joe becomes president. The few that have tried it under trials, chose euthanasia instead of a second dose. It’s now being re-formulated. Stand-by for updates.

      2. The New York Wall Street some type of so-called Jews who obviousle do not follow the “ten comamdmants” financed the soviet communist revolution.
        China copied the soviets with communism.
        Now Ralph, or anyone else, tell me is the New York guys or the Chinese or both, who are stuffing your USA up.Or is just the “elite” (who are pschopaths), who are not elite in a moral sense. Alex Jones says it’s the Chinese a lot.
        In our Austraia, the Chinese seeem to have a lot of influence.

    2. WAKE UP!

      The Globalist, Jewish Cabal responsible for Covid, the rigged election and the vaccine are not going to stop.

      “Q” is not going to change it.

      And Donald Trump is not going to change it.

      It’s time to step away; there is nothing left to lose.

    3. There’s a difference between living in a dream world and having dreams. Many of us have the dream that this country can be made great again by removing the trash and re-establishing truth, justice, integrity and honor. I think that is a far more positive approach than constant and unrelenting criticism of our country and leaders. That attitude comes only from those who have surrendered their rights and have given up.
      More of us than many realize have not. THAT will become more apparent sooner than later.
      Despite our faults, we are still a bastion of the democratic republic concept….more so than any country on this planet.

      1. In January, when Soleimani was killed (thank you veteran), you and James Fetzer were singing similar tunes as the veterans today. At that time ye seemingly recognized that citizen Trump said (and believed) good things in 2015 and 2016; but President Trump did not subscribe to any of them.

        To what has citizen Trump agreed on Tuesday, 2016, before the man in charge of the voting machine pulled the lever in his behalf ?

  5. From Stone:

    At this point, it does not matter what anyone says, or what corruption is revealed. We know now that only the military can solve the problem and if that does not happen, it is game over. The system is totally rotten, all the way through.
