UPDATE: The Supreme Court has unanimously rejected Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s absurd lawsuit to overthrow the results of the election. But the fact that a majority of the House GOP caucus has backed this seditious threat to our Country means that now Democrats are truly “the pro democracy party.”
President Trump has submitted a brief to the Supreme Court seeking to intervene in . Paxton — now backed by 17 states — is claiming that the votes from four swing states that Biden won should not be counted. This is the same lawsuit that legal experts and former Republican officials have called “utter garbage,” and “laughable.” As one Twitter user put it, the document appears to be a “brief-length version of the President’s Twitter account.”
I’m reading through Trump’s new Supreme court brief, and it’s amazing that lawyers are permitted to lie like this. Trump’s lawyer claims there was “chaos” on election night, and the days which followed. What chaos? Especially election night. We had chaos on election night? pic.twitter.com/RrX3U0EOb7

The lawyer who filed the brief, John Eastman, is effectively arguing that millions of votes should be thrown out — most of them Democrat. Yet it appeared even Trump’s lawyer can’t get his facts right. Speaking on behalf of the President, Eastman made a series of baseless claims that are factually incorrect. A true representative of Donald Trump.
The attorney who wrote Trump's filing to SCOTUS is John C. Eastman, a law prof at Chapman University. Where have you heard that name before?
Maybe from his Newsweek column arguing that Kamala Harris may not be a citizen eligible for the vice presidency.
