Anything less and it WILL be stolen by the Courts.
Well, take your time Justice Barret.
Why did John Roberts rush it?
He should have included Justice Barrett
They should have waited till she was seated and settled in before refiling.
The fight continues after the elections.
Is that a non recusal recusal?
The Republicans need to fight fire with fire then.
Kagan and Sotomayor should have recused themselves.
Roberts being a jerk for not including the new Justice, to achieve his political end.
Apparently Barrett couldn’t participate the briefing took place before she was seated. Republicans should immediately refile.
Already a turncoat?...
From Justice Alito, Gorsuch, Thomas and Kavanaugh:
That does not mean, however, that the state court decision must escape our review. Although the Court denies the motion to expedite, the petition for certiorari remains before us, and if it is granted, the case can then be decided under a shortened schedule. In addition, the Courts denial of the motion to expedite is not a denial of a request for this Court to order that ballots received after election day be segregated so that if the State Supreme Courts decision is ultimately overturned, a targeted remedy will be available.
Petitioner represents that it will apply to this Court to obtain that modest relief, Reply in Support of Motion for Expedited Review 3, and Respondent DPP agrees that such
relief is appropriate, Opp. to Motion for Expedited Review
7. Although the Pennsylvania Supreme Court rejected Petitioners request for that relief, we have been informed by the Pennsylvania Attorney General that the Secretary of
the Commonwealth issued guidance today directing county
boards of elections to segregate ballots received between
8:00 p.m. on November 3, 2020, and 5:00 p.m. on November
6, 2020. Nothing in the Courts order today precludes Petitioner from applying to this Court for relief if, for some reason, it is not satisfied with the Secretarys guidance.
Oops, not Kavanaugh.
Gorsuch, Alito and Thomas.
We know Obama weaponized intel. He has something on Roberts, because shortly after O got into office, Roberts tacked left. Trump probably either knows the details or has good idea.
Alito is being very clear that if late-arriving ballots are determinative, the court could still weigh in.
So it was not denied on the merits, just denied for an immediate injunction, and the GOP can request the court to order that all ballots received after the original deadline be kept separate and not counted until the issue is settled by SCOTUS. So not a total defeat - the tricky part will be making sure the precincts in Pittsburgh and Philly actually separate those and don’t count them - once they are added in, there is no way to undo it.
Well, take your time Justice Barret.
Dude, aim your fire at the right target the DESPICABLE John Roberts!
>>Republicans should immediately refile.
Damn straight and amen.
Start reading and reviewing, Amy. Your country needs you. Your country is counting on you.
I went back to the tweet now. Five minutes ago it showed a statement from the court saying that the petition could be considered after the election. Due to this, the request to segregate the late ballots was approved. That left open the possibility of rejecting them post election. Now theres a big Twitter statement saying the copy of that statement has been deleted by the author. Twitter is just saying screw it, we’ll do as we please. Also the original NY Post article was up. I retweeted it 5 times. Now I cant retweet anything. No warning, no explanation, just shut down.
