from 18 states to 106 GOP “concerned” members of Congress, the seditious Trump grift continues

4 min read

The latest GOP logical fallacy is how not finding fraud is proof that there is fraud.  Remember that one of the 17 AGs supporting the Texas AG’s attempt to get a pardon, South Dakota AG Jason Ravnsborg hit and killed a man in his car, left the scene, and told police the man was a deer. 40 days left in the wilderness, the state of play is diversion and distraction.

Now 106 GOP members of Congress have filed a brief accusing something, something “Usurpation” happened:

“This brief presents [our] concern as Members of Congress, shared by untold millions of their constituents, that the unconstitutional irregularities involved in the 2020 presidential election cast doubt upon its outcome and the integrity of the American system of elections.”

Eighteen states have joined Texas in its lawsuit that seeks to halt presidential electors in four battleground states from casting their votes for President-elect Joe Biden.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) filed the lawsuit before the Supreme Court on Tuesday against Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania — all states Biden won. It argues that electors from those states should not cast their votes because the states unconstitutionally changed their voting processes to allow for mail-in voting.

The attorneys general of seventeen states that President Trump won filed an amicus brief on Wednesday. Those states are: Missouri, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R) filed a separate brief in support of the case.

Trump on Wednesday filed a motion to intervene in the case, and reportedly asked Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) to argue the case before the high court.

President Trump is shifting his focus to Congress after the courts roundly rejected his bid to overturn the results of the election, pressuring congressional Republicans into taking a final stand to keep him in power.

Trump’s push is part of a multipronged approach as he also seeks to lobby state lawmakers and officials to give him cover for his unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud, as well as rally support for a last-gasp legal challenge in the Supreme Court that election law experts almost universally dismiss.

The president has been calling Republicans, imploring them to keep fighting and more loudly proclaim the election was stolen while pressing them on what they plan to do. He spoke to Arizona GOP Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward and Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.), head of the conservative Republican Study Committee, on Wednesday, and is meeting Thursday at the White House with several state attorneys general. Meanwhile, Rudolph W. Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer and point man in the legal fight, has been making similar calls from the hospital, where he is being treated for covid-19.
