Trump campaign asks SC to review PA case


Conservative TreehouseThe campaign of President Donald J Trump filed a petition [pdf here] and motion [pdf here] asking for expedited consideration before the U.S. Supreme Court. The substance of the petition is a request to reverse some Pennsylvania Supreme Court decisions.

This is the first direct filing to the U.S. Supreme Court for intervention in the 2020 election and seeks expedited consideration prior to the January 6, 2021, congressional certification of the electoral college vote.

I don't think enough has changed on the ground to change the outcome of this case. I think the Supreme Court is willing to entertain the matter only so long as they can delay it past the election to avoid controversy. However, if enough other evidence of fraud emerges, that may change. The trick is convincing the Supreme Court that intervention is necessary in the court of public opinion. Left to their own devices the court would prefer to settle legal matters after Jan 20th.
