Senator Ted Cruz of Texas just issued a stunning statement about his plans to go to the Supreme Court.
Cruz, a conservative firebrand, offered to actually argue the Pennsylvania mail-in ballot case on behalf of the Trump campaign if the Supreme Court will agree to hear it.
“If #SCOTUS grants cert in the PA election case, I have told the petitioners I will stand ready to present the oral argument,” tweeted Cruz.
Because of the importance of the legal issues presented, I’ve publicly urged #SCOTUS to hear the case brought by Congressman Mike Kelly, congressional candidate Sean Parnell & state rep. candidate Wanda Logan challenging the constitutionality of the POTUS election results in PA.
Petitioners’ legal team has asked me whether I would be willing to argue the case before #SCOTUS, if the Court grants certiorari. I have agreed, and told them that, if the Court takes the appeal, I will stand ready to present the oral argument.
As I said last week, the bitter division and acrimony we see across the Nation needs resolution. I believe #SCOTUS has a responsibility to the American People to ensure, within its powers, that we are following the law and following the Constitution.
If #SCOTUS grants cert in the PA election case, I have told the petitioners I will stand ready to present the oral argument.
