Missouri Attorney General Lends Support to Texas Lawsuit Challenging Election Results

This could bolster the already ambitious litigation.

While President Trump’s legal team has been facing a number of setbacks this week, a major lawsuit from the Lone Star state looks to boost his chances of remaining in the White House for four more years.

Attorney’s for the Trump campaign have been dealt a number of devastating blows over the course of the last few weeks, with over three dozen of their election lawsuits facing resistance from local and state judges.  On top of that, both Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis have now tested positive for COVID-19, sidelining the legal duo for the next week or more.

A new lawsuit by the State of Texas, aimed at four battleground states’ electoral procedures, is now one of the last hopes for Team Trump, and the litigation has found new supports a few hundred miles to the northeast.

Eric Schmitt, the attorney general from Missouri, announced on Twitter late Tuesday that his state is “in the fight” after Texas announced its election challenge that would invalidate the 62 Electoral College votes from four battleground states and award President Trump with a second term.

“Election integrity is central to our republic,” Schmitt, a Republican, tweeted. “And I will defend it at every turn. As I have in other cases—I will help lead the effort in support of Texas’ #SCOTUS filing today. Missouri is in the fight.”

So what exactly is the lawsuit aiming to prove?

Schmitt’s tweet came shortly after Ken Paxton, the attorney general from Texas, explained his motivation behind the suit to Fox News’ ‘Hannity.’

He said that election management in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin—the states named in the suit—directly impacted voters in the his state. In particular, he pointed to changes that were made to expand mail-in voting amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“If other states don’t follow the Constitution and if their state legislature isn’t responsible for overseeing their elections … it affects my state,” he said. “Our job is to make sure the Constitution is followed and that every vote counts. And in this case, I’m not sure every vote was counted. Not in the right way.

There’s no telling how the Supreme Court will rule on the matter, however.

A recent challenge to Pennsylvania’s electoral process was summarily dismissed by SCOTUS this week, with none of the judges, conservative or otherwise, issuing a dissent to the decision.
