After receiving the briefs and opposition from the four key battleground states Thursday, the next step by the Supreme Court will be to review whether to take a case as “a trial court,” John Eastman, counsel to President Donald Trump and presidential scholar, said Thursday on Newsmax TV.
And the pressure on the high court to take that step is growing, he said.
“I suspect the Supreme Court is going to meet in conference [Friday] to decide whether to grant Texas’ motion to file the original action,” Eastman told Thursday’s “Greg Kelly Reports.” “And then they’ll confront the issue like President Trump’s motion to intervene.
“If they grant that Texas motion, they’ll set a briefing schedule. They could even appoint a special master to look at some of underlying allegations of fraud.” …
Why don’t the Democrats want transparency? (Ok, that was a rhetorical question.)
Democrats and the Joe Biden campaign should welcome the legal review to legitimize the election and the next president, Eastman added.
“I think both sides ought to want to have this resolved,” he said. “Half the country thinks this election was stolen, including, according to [pollster] Rasmussen, 30% of Democrats. If that’s true, why would even the Biden camp not want to actually have a court look at the data, look at the violations of state law that occurred to loosen the fraud risk protections on absentee ballots.
