100+ Republican Members of Congress Sign Amicus Brief in Support of Texas in SCOTUS Election Case

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The ‘Texas Case’ has quickly metastasized, becoming the preeminent election challenge as all eyes turn to the Supreme Court, as nearly everyone takes sides. In addition to the 18 states filing amicus briefs in support of Texas’s complaint, and half a dozen who are moving to intervene, 106 members of Congress have now signed an amicus brief drafted by Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) reiterating and supporting the Texas complaint of unconstitutional election rule changes by defendant states.

In an email to congressional colleagues obtained by First in Freedom Daily, Congressman Johnson wrote (emphasis added):

“[…] The simple objective of our brief is to affirm for the court (and our constituents back home) our serious concerns with the integrity of our election system. We are not seeking to independently litigate the particular allegations of fraud in our brief (this is not our place as amici). We will merely state our belief that the broad scope of the various allegations and irregularities in the subject states merits careful, timely review by the Supreme Court.

The purpose of our amicus brief will be to articulate this concern and express our sincere belief that the great importance of this issue merits a full and careful consideration by the court.

Due in large part to those usurpations, the election of 2020 has been riddled with an unprecedented number of serious allegations of fraud and irregularities. […]”

Congressman Greg Murphy (R-NC) representing eastern North Carolina, was one of the 106 members to sign the brief, along with Reps. Dan Bishop, David Rouzer, Ted Budd, Virginia Foxx, Richard Hudson. Among the total are members from defendant states themselves.

Additionally, Congressman Ted Budd (R-NC), in addition to signing on to this amicus brief, is, with half a dozen others, asking President Donald Trump to appoint special counsel to further examine and investigate election irregularities.

Before the question of how the Supreme Court would decided this case, is the more pressing question of IF they will consider it in the first place.

The heavy political implications of the taking and deciding this case (either way) are a natural deterrent for some on the high court, but the political and constitutional implications of not hearing the case are perhaps even more dire.

That’s why it’s so important to have all these other states and members of congress signing on to implore the court to weigh in on an issue of extraordinary consequence.
