BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court REJECTS AZGOP/Gohmert Appeal

UPDATE, 1/7/21 at 12:20pm: The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear the AZGOP/Gohmert appeal. Apparently, Justice Samuel Alito - who is the designated Justice for the 5th Circuit - did not wish to solely make the decision to not reverse the lower courts' dismissal for lack of standing. He presented it to his colleagues, who denied it as a full Court.

UPDATE, 8:30pm: NOW, THAT'S WHAT I CALL EXPEDITED, Part 73:


5th Circuit AGREED with @AZGOP/@replouiegohmert that their appeal should be expedited. In less than 8 hours, the 5th Circuit judges AFFIRMED the dismissal of the case against the Electoral Count Act.

BTW, the three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit? Two REAGAN nominees and one TRUMP nominee. (Affirming the TRUMP-nominated District Court Judge.)
