The Supreme Court has proven itself a useless tool to fight against voter fraud.
On Monday the high court threw out every remaining election fraud case pertaining to the 2020 presidential election between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
The case filed in Pennsylvania argued against the allowance of state election boards to count votes days after actual election day. The Supreme Court decided against arguing any elections-related cases until after the inauguration of President Biden.
Without any ability to defend themselves prior to or after the election, Trump and his legal team have been stripped of their right to investigate the precarious nature of the election.
The conservative Justice Clarence Thomas dissented from the decision of his colleagues, writing a scathing rebuttal of the Court’s practices. Thomas argued, despite their not being enough votes to overturn the election, the high court should have taken up arguments before the election to prevent any mistrust or fraud.
“These cases provide us with an ideal opportunity to address just what authority nonelected officials have to set election rules, and to do so well before the next election cycle,” Thomas wrote. “The refusal to do so is inexplicable.”
Thomas made the case that because courts are unable to settle election disputes as they arise, the court should use the current election fraud cases to clear up and set precedent for future elections cases.
“We invite future erosion and confusion if we do nothing,” he wrote.
In a separate dissent, Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, both conservatives, also wrote the high court should provide further clarity on elections cases before they arise.
This isn’t the first time the court has thrown out suits questioning the integrity of the 2020 election. Rep. Mike Kelly was denied a hearing when he questioned the Pennsylvania election results. The court also declined to consider two other election lawsuits filed by the Trump administration.
