The big break that Trump supporters have been waiting for has finally happened.
The Lone Star State has taken it upon themselves to litigate against states who are proven to be involved in a concerted effort to commit voter fraud in hopes of changing the 2020 election results.
You know what they say, “Don’t mess with Texas.”
That saying is coming to fruition as Texas is filing suits against the contested swing states to hold them responsible for attempting to disenfranchise American voters across the country.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit with the Supreme Court on Monday night, listing Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia as defendants.
The Texas complaint argues that the states made unconstitutional changes to voting rules and processes by circumventing the state legislatures.
For context, we know that in the Bush versus Gore case in 2000, the Supreme Court previously ruled that state officials cannot singlehandedly alter election law without the state legislators’ approval as it is unconstitutional.
Essentially, state legislatures alone are the only ones allowed to change election law.
Texas also states in the lawsuit that there were “intrastate differences” within the contested states as specific counties were treated differently than others, constituting as a violation of the Equal Protection Clause.
This is likely referring to witnesses who said at multiple hearings that red counties were given different procedures to follow than blue counties.
According to the Washington Examiner, Texas’ end goal is for the Supreme Court to rule that, due to these discrepancies, the contested states should be required to send electors to President Trump by default.
AG Paxton wrote in a statement, “Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin destroyed that trust and compromised the security and integrity of the 2020 election.” Alleging that they “violated” statutes put forth by state legislatures and therefore, “violating the Constitution.”
“By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections,” Paxton argues.
“Their failure to abide by the rule of law casts a dark shadow of doubt over the outcome of the entire election. We now ask that the Supreme Court step in to correct this egregious error,” he said.
Since the lawsuit’s filing, 17 states have joined the Lone Star State’s efforts to combat the Left’s attempts to overthrow election results favoring the president.
As of Wednesday, attorney generals from Missouri, Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Tennessee, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, and West Virginia have signed onto the suit.
President Trump celebrated the news by tweeting that he will “intervene” in the case which seeks to ensure a free and fair election.
“We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!”, he wrote.

This massive lawsuit could be the case that wins it all for President Trump.
Although there are still many questions yet to be answered, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case and ordered defendants to respond by Thursday at 3:00 PM latest.
