During an interview with Newsmax TV on Friday, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani reacted to the Supreme Court’s decision to deny Texas’ lawsuit against key swing states.
“The case wasn’t rejected on the merits, the case was rejected on standing,” Giuliani said. “So the answer to that is to bring the case now to the district court by the president, by some of the electors, alleging some of the same facts where there would be standing and therefore get a hearing.”
Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield said, “Mr. Mayor, I know you talked to the president just after this ruling came down. What’s his reaction, and how’s he doing through all this.”
Giuliani replied, “The president’s reaction is to look at other options. I mean, we always knew that this was an option, that we would have to convert this into — in fact, originally, we thought about this as possibly four or five separate cases. So that is the option we are going to have to go to. There’s nothing that prevents us from filing these cases immediately in the district court in which the president, of course, would have standing, some of the electors would have standing in that their constitutional rights have been violated.”
He continued, “We’re not finished. Believe me.”
Attorney Sidney Powell is also doubling down after the Supreme Court’s decision. On Friday evening, Powell announced that she was making emergency filings in the states of Georgia, Michigan, Arizona and Wisconsin.
The announcement from Powell came just hours after the Supreme Court shot down Texas’s lawsuit where they attempted to block the certification of the 2020 election results.
“Pay attention!” Powell tweeted. “We made emergency filings in #SupremeCourt tonight for #Georgia & #Michigan. Will be filing #Arizona #Wisconsin shortly. These cases raise constitutional issues and prove massive #fraud. Our plaintiffs have #standing #WeThePeople will not allow #rigged elections.”
At the same time as Powell, President Trump’s team simultaneously filed an emergency appeal to the Supreme Court in Georgia.
Atlanta News Now reports:
Trump initially filed the lawsuit Dec. 4. But the Fulton County Superior Court clerk’s office initially rejected it, saying the president’s attorneys didn’t pay the proper filing fee or fill out the paperwork correctly.
Trump’s attorneys corrected that on Monday – the same day state officials recertified the election results following a third tally of votes. The vote showed Biden won Georgia by 11,779 votes out of some 5 million ballots cast.
With the certification done, Trump’s campaign withdrew an emergency motion for a temporary restraining order to prevent the certification. With the emergency motion withdrawn, Fulton County Judge Constance Russell issued an order Wednesday stating the lawsuit would proceed “in the normal course” – which means it will not be resolved any time soon.
On Friday, Trump’s campaign appealed to the Georgia Supreme Court.
The appeal says Russell is not qualified to judge an election case under state law because she is a resident of Fulton County and an active judge – not a judge on senior status. Because of that and other miscues it says occurred at the county court, the appeal asks the Supreme Court to rule on the merits of its case before Monday.
