Trump says he thinks 2020 election will end up at Supreme Court

90 Comments

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he thinks the 2020 election will end up at the U.S. Supreme Court, adding that is why it was important to have nine justices.

Trump also declined to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the Nov 3 election to Democratic rival Joe Biden.

"We're going to have to see what happens," Trump told reporters at the White House when asked if he would commit to a peaceful transfer.

The president has sought repeatedly to cast doubt, preemptively, on the legitimacy of the election because of his concerns about mail-in voting, which Democrats have encouraged during the pandemic.

"The ballots are a disaster," Trump said.

Trump said Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, would not even have to hold a hearing for the Supreme Court nominee and that the process would go quickly.

"I think this will end up in the Supreme Court and I think it's very important that we have nine justices," Trump said when asked if a full complement of justices was needed to handle any challenges to the Nov 3 election.

Trump has cast doubt on the integrity of the election, saying without evidence that the use of mail-in balloting during the coronavirus would lead to fraud.

"This scam that the Democrats are pulling, it's a scam, the scam will be before the United States Supreme Court, and I think having a 4-4 situation is not a good situation," he said.

Only one previous U.S. presidential election, the 2000 contest between Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore, had its outcome determined by the Supreme Court.

Trump is moving quickly to nominate a successor to liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Friday, and his fellow Republicans in the Senate say they could hold a vote before the election. That would seal a 6-3 conservative majority on the court.

Trump has already appointed two conservatives to lifetime posts on the court, Neil Gorsuch in 2017 and Brett Kavanaugh in 2018. Supreme Court appointments require Senate confirmation, and Trump’s fellow Republicans hold 53 of the chamber's 100 seats.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he intends to act on any nomination Trump makes.

Because he cannot, will not win a free and fair election. This is the only way he can “win.”

"I think this will end up in the Supreme Court and I think it's very important that we have nine justices,"

What he's saying is he thinks his majority will follow the Koch funded (along with other far right billionaires) Federalist Society policies and for the court to make decisions granting the executive even greater power. Authoritarianism Now! Is the cry of the far right, after all.

That will allow Trump to push through measures enabling his 'elite' 'establishment' faction and the corporations they run to have even fewer checks on them.

Look for the Trump court to make environmental, worker and consumer protection measures even weaker.

Look for weakening of individual rights protections, especially rights for women and those not from the majority culture.

His campaign is already setting it up so states can override their popular votes and choose electors favorable to Trump if there is “too much confusion” after the election.

And, our country slips further down the toilet drain. Thanks, willfully ignorant conservatives. It’s too late to unring the bell of your 2016 vote.

And of course, he's right. The Democrats have already signaled their intention to try and steal a lost election with the mail-in ballot scam to create chaos. Wisconsin has already declared that ballots can be counted up to 6 days after the election if postmarks even appear to be legit.

Madness.

Madness that a state can set rules so that every votes counts in a free and fair election?

I am predicting that Trump will lose the election, dispute the results and fight it all the way to the Supreme Court. But I don't see a ruling before January 20, 2021. So I wonder if this is just to de-legitimize the Biden Presidency. Is Pelosi going to end up as President in the interim until resolved?

"I think this will end up in the Supreme Court and I think it's very important that we have nine justices,"

It’s repugnant that the Democrats are destroying our institutions, such as the Supreme Court and the threat to expand the number of justices. Everyone knows the dems are upset that the guy who was never supposed to win is turning out to be a legendary president who’s on the verge of adding the appointment of three scotus justices to his list of accomplishments. But to threaten to increase the number of justices just because you can’t get your way is like a child throwing a tantrum.

And there’s more; and it’s even more repugnant: threatening impeachment in order to stall the senate. Another cornerstone institution of the nation—impeachment—down the drain. Thanks democrats. Impeachment was reserved for high crimes and treason. Now it’s a card in the progressive Democrats’s wallet—to played along with the race card, the sexism card the poc card, etc etc etc. It’s a convenient mechanism to manipulate the circumstances in order to get what you want. A lot like a toddler threatening to hold its breath if it doesn’t get what it wants.

We already know Trump refuses any reality that do not consider him successful. He is not capable of accepting any failure and mistakes. He is a very sick, old man.

If this does end up at the Supreme Court, I doubt that even the conservative majority will take a case based on such flimsy evidence and precedent.

If Trump loses, of course he will kick up as much of a fuss as he can.

...  is turning out to be a legendary president

“Real” is an antonym of legendary, as are “factual”, “authentic”, and “true”. In that sense it seems legit to describe Trump as “legendary”. It’s too bad that under this “legendary” president the world is watching the rapid decline of what was once a great democracy.

... to be a legendary president who’s...

It's not possible to take anyone seriously who describes any politician as "legendary."

on the verge of adding the appointment of three scotus justices

That three vacancies came during his tenure is just good luck, and it's hardly "legendary" when a Republican President gets a Republican Senate to approve a conservative SC judge.

Prepare for a thrown election

Manipulation of the post office machines. This has already happened. They didn't just turn them off, they ripped them out. Expect more missing and broken machines to come as they don't use paper ballots.

Mail-in ballots declared by Trump to be invalid

OK Trump, you think it will be decided in the SC. Then, it would be the duty of a fair president to nominate a moderate or centrist judge (like Merrick Garland); someone who will look at all evidence fairly and make an honest judgement.

But then again, I'm betting all my money that Trump will stack it with a far right judge that he knows will always rule in his favor, so that he can take away the power of the vote and 'win' his way. Democracy as we know it is dead.

The fraud currently occupying the White House is spewing fake news, disinformation and misinformation about the upcoming election.

He is unfit to be President of the United States of America (POTUS) and continues creating havoc with electoral process. Nothing usual for this evil bully as his inferiority complex shines every time he opens his trap.

The author of that piece has been accused of being funded by the NRA and was exposed using a sock puppet to defend his own works online.

The only way this will end up in SCOTUS is by Trump claiming massive ballot fraud and having the mail-in votes thrown out

(Does a quick Google search and finds this.)

“But the rate of voting fraud overall in the US is between 0.00004% and 0.0009%, according to a 2017 study by the Brennan Center for Justice.”

For those of you less skilled less skilled at math, (We American’s don’t pluralize it) this would mean that there are between 4 and 9 fraudulent votes for every 100 MILLION ballots cast.

Not exactly wide-spread voter fraud.

IN ADDITION, every state knows how many ballots it has sent out and whom they have sent them to.

AND each state has its own type of paper, fonts and what have you.

Ergo, (“therefore” for the Trumpkins with the “best words”) foreign ballot stuffing is HIGHLY unlikely.

Ergo, (Again “therefore”) Trump has no case.

No state allows ballots postmarked after election day.

No states allow without a postmark.

Alaska and New York allow 7 days, the rest allow 3 days after election, with all requiring a postmark on or before election day.

As for the SCOTUS nomination, Mitch provided Trump with an "approved" list years ago. They keep the list current for conservative rulings and interpretations. Any on the list are acceptable to the core Republican party.

The only people who should be left voting for Trump are 1 issue voters who are against abortion. Anyone with a conscience who cares about the US Republic surviving shouldn't vote for Trump, if only because the man is a liar and has cause 140K deaths this year. That's beyond the estimated 60K deaths. His actions and lack of actions are directly related.

The SCOTUS will get the different lawsuits and they may force nation-wide rules on voting as the outcome, while recognizing the critical nature of support by the citizens that the right to vote cannot be infringed. Period. SCOTUS only gets to control Federal elections, but the states will all follow those requirements for their local elections too.

and the postmarks. courts can rule on that after the fact. All of these individual state rulings can and will be taken to the Supreme Court. We dont even have the same rules in every state.

"The postmark issue emerged this year in Wisconsin's primary after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that ballots postmarked by Election Day would count as long as they were received within five days of the election. But local clerks started seeing hundreds of ballots without the marks and weren't sure what to do. The state eventually advised that ballots without postmarks should be counted if it seemed "more likely than not" that they had been mailed on time."

"A similar problem arose in the June primary in New York, where a federal judge ruled after the election that thousands of ballots that had been rejected because they didn't have postmarks should be counted, as long as they had been received within two days of the election."

You can make an even bigger argument about the Democrats and their hatred for the job creators. They want more people to rely on government and deeper dependency, makes perfect sense. When you have billionaires like Steyr, Bloomberg and Soros pushing for a one world, one party rule, it’s not surprising by their actions how much hatred they have for the US.

Look for weakening of individual rights protections, especially rights for women and those not from the majority culture.

No, because if that were true, Trump wouldn’t appoint another woman to the bench and both sides want to protect women, except one side will speak up for the children that can’t speak out for themselves and that women don’t want.

Of course the 2020 elections will end up before the Supreme Court. There have been too many changes to election rules, and regulations, over the last several years. None of the changes have been challenged in the courts. Yet. But those changes will be challenged, state by state, by whichever side loses.

Technically Trump can ask Republican controlled states to send in their Trump supporting electors as the Electoral College doesn't work by popular vote but Electoral College electors from each state who then vote. It wouldn't be illegal but it would completely undermine the spirit of the election process. Basically making voting useless

They are already planning to do just that!

The Trump campaign is reportedly 'discussing contingency plans to bypass election results'

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-campaign-reportedly-discussing-contingency-153100735.html

The report delves into possible scenarios if Trump apparently loses the 2020 presidential election but doesn't concede, noting that although we're used to electors being selected based on the popular vote, "nothing in the Constitution says it has to be that way." Citing Republican Party sources, The Atlantic says that Trump's campaign is "discussing contingency plans to bypass election results and appoint loyal electors in battleground states where Republicans hold the legislative majority."

The campaign would reportedly assert that this step was necessary due to claims of supposed voter fraud, which experts have noted is extraordinarily rare, ahead of the "safe harbor" deadline to appoint 538 electors on Dec. 8.

Trump would ask state legislators to set aside the popular vote and exercise their power to choose a slate of electors directly. The longer Trump succeeds in keeping the vote count in doubt, the more pressure legislators will feel to act before the safe-harbor deadline expires.

Trump is all about Trump. He is again attempting to stack the blocks in his favor and I would say he is asking prospective judges for the open supreme court position, to back him in a disputed election vote. Those who say no wont get nominated. Lets hope all are honest enough to say no.

Not saying he will relinquish power peacefully is him building fear. He can challenge the election if there is just cause but there probably wont be unless he has already manufactured something. He is a disturbing, disgusting individual as are those who would vote for him.

Once again he is wrong.

In the United States, a contingent election is the procedure used in presidential elections in the event that no candidate wins an absolute majority of votes in the Electoral College, the constitutional mechanism for electing the president and the vice president of the United States. A contingent election for the president is decided by a vote of the United States House of Representatives, and the contingent election for the vice president is decided by a vote of the United States Senate.

Nice. My source was CGPGrey voting videos from a few years ago about the Electoral College, but there we go right now. Explains all his voter fraud nonsense and not accepting the results. He's setting the stage for not accepting the loss. A weird way to campaign but not an unexpected lowlife goal with 200,000 gone.

It would be a curious thing though if nations around the world didn't accept the result or if states broke off. In 2016 that was the discussion of Washington Oregon California plus maybe Nevada joining Canada. That way the Repubs will be happy with the middle Mordor

They’re not anymore, more and more people are coming out and fighting them.

Not clicking on your dubious links - perhaps you could explain who is coming out to fight the fascists?

Not one Trump supporter is out rioting and destroying the country.

The unmarked cops and the Trump administration are doing just that. Those who hold covid rallies are doing that. Those who promote this modern day tyrant are doing that.

Case in point, look at what’s happening right now in Kentucky two cops just got shot and still the Democrats are silent on the violence in 4 cities and just because the verdict doesn’t please these people?

These people?

Can't speak for the Democrats but of course there will be blood spilled. Trump cultists don't give a damn about the loss of life when it's a black person, so please, tell us why should anyone give a damn when these cops get shot?

A lot like a toddler (democrats) threatening to hold its breath if it doesn’t get what it wants.

You mean a bit like when trump shut down the government because he wanted funding for the wall Mexico was going to pay for?

No matter what, Trump will fill that seat and Dems have to accept it and no whooping and crying will stop it.

This is like when you are a kid, and you're playing your older brother, sister or friend. And they start losing the game that they made up. They constantly change the rules as they go along. IT reminds me of that.
