Ted Cruz Steps Up to Present Oral Arguments Before Supreme Court Challenging 2020 Election Results in PA

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Monday offered to present oral arguments before the Supreme Court in the case challenging the constitutionality of the presidential election results in Pennsylvania.

President Trump’s legal team are seeking to throw out all of the mail-in ballots in the state which were improperly counted without allowing meaningful GOP inspection.

In a tweet, Cruz said that he had informed the president’s attorneys that he has publicly urged #SCOTUS to hear the case, which was brought by three Pennsylvania Republicans; U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly, congressional candidate Sean Parnell; and state rep. candidate Wanda Logan.

Cruz tweeted that he stands “ready to present the oral argument” if justices decide to grant certiorari in the case.

“Petitioners’ legal team has asked me whether I would be willing to argue the case before #SCOTUS, if the Court grants certiorari,” Cruz wrote. “I have agreed, and told them that, if the Court takes the appeal, I will stand ready to present the oral argument.”

He added: “As I said last week, the bitter division and acrimony we see across the Nation needs resolution. I believe #SCOTUS has a responsibility to the American People to ensure, within its powers, that we are following the law and following the Constitution.”

 

 

 

“It’s an honor to have Senator @tedcruz on our team & in the trenches in defense of our Constitution,” tweeted Parnell, an former Army Ranger who was wounded in Afghanistan in 2006, and medically retired in 2010.

Parnell also thanked PA Senate Majority Leader Kim Ward and the PA Senate GOP for joining the fight.

 

Marc Elias, the infamous Perkins Coie lawyer who is fighting the election lawsuits brought by Republicans, tried to school Cruz about the case.

“It’s not before the Court on a cert petition,” Elias tweeted. “The petitioners are seeing an emergency injunction, for which there will not be any oral argument.”

Cruz replied: “If you’d read the pleading, you’d know that Petitioners explicitly ask that it be treated as a cert petition.”

Constitutional lawyer and conservative radio host Mark Levin wrote on Twitter, “this is a big case, it is a substantive case, it is a constitutional case.”

Update:

Senator Cruz appeared on Fox News’ Hannity, Monday night, to discuss the case.

“This appeal to the Supreme Court raises very serious issues—it raises pure issues of law,” Cruz told Hannity. “I think we need a sense of resolution and we need the Supreme Court to step in and ensure that we’re following the Constitution and following the law,” he continued. “Right now, it’s not healthy for our Democracy what we’re seeing, and in Pennsylvania, the problem is made worse because the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is a partisan, Democratic court that has issued multiple decisions that were just on their face contrary to law,” the senator concluded.
