More Preplanned Election Chaos: Trump Says The Supreme Court Will “Sort Out” The Election

According to the American Bar Association, “‘Friend of the court’ or amicus curiae briefs are often filed in appellate cases heard by the U.S. Supreme Court and state supreme courts, as well as intermediate courts of appeal. And there is considerable evidence that amicus briefs have influence.” On Tuesday evening, the Supreme Court ordered the defendant states to reply by 3 p.m. on Thursday, December 10.

“It’s not unusual,” SMU Constitutional Law Professor Dale Carpenter told CBS 11. “I don’t think it indicates anything very important… I think the court will act quickly on Thursday.” Carpenter added: “Ken Paxton is asking that Republican state legislatures in four states be allowed to displace the will of the voters in those States and choose their own slate of electors, presumably to hand the election to Donald Trump in January. The Supreme Court is not going to allow that to happen.”

We will see.
