President meets with Republican attorneys general supporting his efforts

WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump, who continues to challenge his alleged electoral defeat, meets at the White House with state attorneys general who support the Texas suit.

Several legal scholars questioned the suit’s prospects, but Trump tweeted: “The Supreme Court has a chance to save our country from the greatest electoral abuses in US history.”.

The lawsuit was filed in the Supreme Court by one of Trump’s supporters, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

Paxton’s lawsuit disputes results in four key states defeated by Democrat Joe Biden: Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. These states have a total of 62 electoral votes..

The outcome of a presidential election in the United States is determined not by universal suffrage, but by the Electoral College. 270 electoral votes are required to win.

According to preliminary counts, Biden has 306 votes, Trump has 232. The Electoral College vote will take place on Monday, and Congress must consider and approve the results on January 6, which is usually a purely formal process..

However, Trump is urging Republican lawmakers to challenge the electoral rolls in states where Biden won by a small margin. If at least one member of the House of Representatives and one Senator question the results in any of the states, the confirmation of the electors in that state will require a vote of the full Congress..

Republican Congressman Mo Brooks of Alabama said he will challenge Biden’s victory, but it is not yet clear if any of the senators will join his initiative..

If it comes to a vote, it is clear that the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives will vote against Trump..

Paxton’s lawsuit was supported by seventeen states that voted for Trump.

“There is overwhelming evidence of massive fraud in the four (at least) states mentioned in the Texas lawsuit,” Trump tweeted. “Just look at the tapes and readings!”

Paxton asks in his lawsuit to prevent electors from four states that promised to vote for Biden, instead allowing state legislatures to appoint alternate electors..

Attorneys General of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – Democrats Dana Nessel, Josh Shapiro and Josh Kaul – called Paxton’s lawsuit an attempt to “mislead the public and undermine the foundation of the Constitution.”.

“It is high time for the president, states and elected officials to stop misleading the public,” they said..
