The simple answer is – No. Despite the corporate media claiming the SCOTUS “denial” means the end of Trump. It is not.
SCOTUS did not deny the lawsuit on merit, but rather standing. Trump’s legal team has said that SCOTUS just dodged the case using procedure, but it clearly was not unanimous. Justices Thomas and Alito were said to want to take the case. Perhaps there were more.
President Trump’s team is now repackaging the lawsuits around President Trump and electors from the four states in question.
“We move immediately, seamlessly, to plan B, which is to bring lawsuits now in each one of the states. We had them ready. They’re just a version of the one that was brought in the Supreme Court. So last night, the president made the decision,” Rudy Giuliani said during an appearance on “War Room: Pandemic.”
“If the state doesn’t have standing, surely the president of the United States has standing. And certainly the electors in the states have standing. So they will be bringing those very cases right in those courts, starting today,” Giuliani said. “And let’s see what excuse they can try to use to avoid having a hearing on that.”
With the Electoral College meeting on December 14th there is little time left for a lawsuit before final certification. However, as many lawyers have pointed out, these dates are not hardwired into the process. There is only one date that truly matter and that is Jan. 20th.
Meanwhile, as tensions rise between the states and politicians, a prominent Republican, former Rep. and current chairman of the Texas GOP Allen West has stated that it may be time to make “a union” of states that want to follow the Constitution.
Things are truly not close to wrapping up.
