A political analyst believes President Donald Trump’s challenge before the Supreme Court is a test case that will show the court’s willingness to tackle allegations of election fraud.
The Supreme Court has so far refused to hear cases involving election fraud claims related to the 2020 presidential race. But hoping that will change, the Trump campaign has asked the high court to reverse three decisions from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, contending there is a “likelihood” those decisions violate the federal Constitution.
Rob Chambers, vice president of AFA Action, says President Trump is using this as a test case after the Supreme Court passed on a suit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton because it supposedly lacked standing.
“What President Trump is doing here is basically pressing the issue for all to see how political the Supreme Court could be,” says Chambers. “He is forcing the issue with the Supreme Court. Whereas the Supreme Court said that AG Paxton did not have standing … the Supreme Court will be having to determine whether or not President Trump has standing in Pennsylvania. I think absolutely yes.”
Chambers believes the president’s case is a strong one.
“There’s significant fraud, illegal votes in the state of Pennsylvania. There’s also constitutional issues in Pennsylvania,” he asserts.
So if the Supreme Court decides that President Trump does not have standing, then Chambers says Americans will know that the Supreme Court is “basically politically correct men and women in black.”
Despite Chambers’ hopes, a Pennsylvania pro-family activist doesn’t have a whole lot of confidence the Supreme Court will even take up the case.
“They have sidestepped the issue from the beginning, as far as I’m concerned, and they apparently don’t want to get involved,” says Diane Gramley, president of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania. “They refuse – as all the other courts have refused – to look at any of the evidence that’s out there, which is massive as far as the election irregularities.”
And Gramley admits being disappointed that the three Supreme Court Justices nominated by President Trump have failed to stand up for the president in these election challenges.
“I’m thinking that John Roberts wields a lot of power as chief justice; this is just my guess,” she shares. “But looking at the three Trump nominees, we fought hard for [Neil] Gorsuch and [Brett] Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett – and thus far they’ve been disappointing, to say the least.”
