Donald Trump’s attorneys have been acting like annoying, nagging kids in front of the Supreme Court. The president wants to get SCOTUS to cheat for him, after all, he put three of them where they sit. Why? He wants them to hand him the 2020 presidential election. Why is the court even listening?
As of October 29 at 2:22 pm, 80,061,661 Americans had voted early, according to the ElectProject. People voting in-person numbered 28,140,641. Those who voted by mail and returned their ballots numbered 51,021,020, and 39,086,318 mail ballots were still outstanding.
ElectProject noted that “Some states do not differentiate between mail ballots and in-person votes.” It is too early yet to vote in California, Texas, and Florida. These are among the states with the highest Electoral College votes.
Attorney John Kruzel, Supreme Court and legal affairs reporter for @TheHill, tweeted that Justices Clarence Thomas, Sam Alito, and Niel Gorsuch would have granted the request to screw with the presidential and downstream voter ballots, thus, who wins.
Kruzel continued with his updates:
‘BREAKING: Supreme Court for the second time in as many days rejects a GOP effort to block a mail-ballot extension in North Carolina’
While Justices Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch would have granted the president’s request, it take four justices to bring it before the court. The newest Justice Amy Barrett who was crammed through the system, did not participate in this decision. She did not recuse (withdraw) herself, because she felt she did not have time to properly read the documents. Once at the court, five justices must agree to pass a ruling.
‘Justices Thomas, Alito and Gorsuch would have granted the request Justice Barrett took no part in considering the case’
Then, Kruzel recapped the Supreme Court mail-in ballots actions:
- ‘PA: Mail ballots that arrive by Nov. 6 and aren’t postmarked after Election Day will be accepted (if no additional court action).
- NC: Mail ballots that arrive by Nov. 12 and aren’t postmarked after Election Day will be accepted.
- WI: Mail ballots due Nov. 3:’
