While the mainstream media continues to write the obituary on President Donald Trump’s first term, a major announcement out of Texas has shaken up everything.
The state’s Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Wisconsin in the Supreme Court over the 2020 election results.
According to Paxton, the four states allegedly took advantage of the coronavirus pandemic to illegally alter mail-in voting changes at the last minute.

The official lawsuit — first reported by Breitbart News — accuses the four battleground states of multiple instances of irregularities.
The Defendant States flooded their citizenry with tens of millions of ballot applications and ballots in derogation of statutory controls as to how they are lawfully received, evaluated, and counted. Whether well intentioned or not, these unconstitutional acts had the same uniform effect—they made the 2020 election less secure in the Defendant States.
The lawsuit, filed just before midnight Monday, also says that the “Electors Clause of the Constitution” was violated because the change in voting rules came by way of executive action, instead of through legislation. AG Paxton is charging that there were procedural discrepancies in voting among the many counties in each state.
The lawsuit comes as time seems to be running out for the Trump legal team and its quest to undo the 2020 election results.
According to The Seattle Times, Paxton is looking to get a court date certified by the Supreme Court before the Dec. 14. date — when the Electoral College is scheduled to meet and officially certify the election.
A potential victory by Paxon would prevent the electors from those four states from participating in the Electoral College decision next week.

The clever legal move has its naysayers, of course.
Michigan’s Attorney General Dana Nessel called the viral lawsuit a “publicity stunt.”
“The erosion of confidence in our democratic system isn’t attributable to the good people of Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia or Pennsylvania,” she added. “but rather to partisan officials, like Mr. Paxton, who place loyalty to a person over loyalty to their country.”
Paxton, an unabashed Trump supporter, has recently been under investigation by the FBI.
