As we peer into the future and start making bold predictions about what inauguration day may bring, even the wildest of dreams isn’t likely to include Rudy Giuliani’s state-by-state lawsuits, being filed and dismissed from coast to coast in the name of Trump’s reelection.
Giuliani has failed to gain any traction during his barnstorming tour of the nation’s lower courts. And, to make matters more fire for Donald Trump, the Supreme Court has already rejected a suit filed by the State of Texas that many saw as the last viable legal option for the President’s reelection.
This leaves only a path through Congress, which is as narrow an avenue as you’ll find.
The President is leaving no stone unturned.
President Trump Monday huddled with members of Congress to discuss plans to object to President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College win and to force a debate on allegations of voter fraud.
Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., attended the White House meeting and said there’s growing support for GOP lawmakers from the House and Senate to challenge the election results when a Joint Session of Congress convenes on Jan. 6 to certify the Electoral College result. The vote was 306 to 232 in Biden’s favor.
“We will be raising objections to the Electoral College votes for Joe Biden for multiple states,” Greene told Fox News.
Greene went into a few details about the meeting, but was reticent to out anyone who may be on board but unwilling to go public as of now.
Greene said the White House meeting included Trump, Vice President Pence, Trump’s legal team and about 15 House members, including GOP Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Matt Gaetz of Florida and Louie Gohmert of Texas.
Congressional rules require a House member and senator to simultaneously challenge a state’s electoral slate when they jointly convene on Jan. 6. Greene said senators are on board, though she declined to name them publicly.
“Some people just haven’t totally gone public yet, but we’re going to have a lot of people on board, and we definitely have senators,” Greene told Fox News. “This is going to be historic and the amount of evidence is overwhelming.”
Trump has insisted from the start that he won the 2020 election, but that “illegal” ballots and widespread voter fraud handed the contest to Joe Biden.
