Donald Trump Called His Family A Traitor to Our Country, Now He Wants Cruz To Defend His Fraudulent Election Claims Before The Supreme Court

Ted Cruz Agrees To Argue Texas Lawsuit Against Four State Election Results

Austin, Texas — Ted Cruz is being “politically roasted” for agreeing to present oral arguments should The Supreme Court agree to take up a lawsuit filed by Indicted Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

The lawsuit seeks to invalidate the electoral votes in Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, where President-elect Joe Biden was declared the legitimate winner of the 2020 Presidential election.

ICYMI: Dallas Morning News: Ted Cruz blasted for agreeing to argue Texas lawsuit to overturn the presidential election

“Texas Sen. Ted Cruz came under political fire Thursday for agreeing to represent President Donald Trump in the Texas-led effort to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, should the Supreme Court hear it.”

More from the Dallas Morning News: 

“The suit, filed at the Supreme Court by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, seeks to nullify votes in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin because they “exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to justify unlawfully enacting last-minute changes” that skewed the votes of the presidential election, according to Paxton’s office. Biden won the election with 7 million more votes than Trump and an electoral margin of 306-232, which mirrors the electoral count Trump won in the 2016 vote.”

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, a Democrat, called the Texas Republican a “sad sack” for agreeing to argue the case in an interview on CNN. “He has proven himself to be neither a genius in the law or a genius, frankly in terms of an EQ,” Shapiro said. “… If you continue to hold yourself out as a legal expert yet demonstrate day in and day out with the support of this president and his claims that you don’t know anything about the law, either the process or the facts that go into a winning lawsuit.”

Cruz has had a historically tempestuous relationship with Trump, who Cruz called a “pathological liar” and “utterly amoral” in 2016. Trump called Cruz “Lyin’ Ted,” insulted his wife and said his father was involved in the conspiracy to assassinate John F. Kennedy.

Ted Cruz is Simply an Embarrassment to Himself, the People of Texas and the Rest of the Country

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“Not even Trump’s own U.S. Attorney General is willing to entertain his blatant lies and attempts to corrupt our country’s 2020 election results or the electoral college process. Yet, in an effort to gain favor with Trump and his supporters, indicted Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Senator Ted Cruz are carrying Trump’s water.

“Accept Joe Biden’s legitimate 2020 win and get out of the way of progress. Our state needs leaders who are providing for the critical needs of everyday Texans impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic at both the federal and state level, not ‘yes men’ defending a bully who just got kicked off the playground.”
