President Trump has asked Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) to present a case from his state’s attorney general seeking to invalidate the election results of several key battleground states before the Supreme Court should it decide to hear the suit, The New York Times reported Wednesday.
The lawsuit from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) seeks to void the vote certifications of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia and Michigan, arguing that the results are “tainted” by new election processes in those states.
News of the president’s request to Cruz comes shortly after he told his followers Wednesday in a tweet that he would be “intervening” in the Texas case while not specifying what that intervention would look like.
“We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!” the president tweeted.
