The Texas lawsuit is aimed at delaying the appointment of presidential electors from Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. Missouri joined a group of 17 states on Wednesday to file a brief with the Supreme Court in support of Texas.
According to the state of Texas, the four states in question had acted unconstitutionally when either their judiciaries or executive branches changed their elections laws. Those states questioning this, have stated that only state legislatures may set laws on the appointment of their presidential electors, Fox News reported.
“The integrity of our elections is of critical importance to maintaining our republic, both today and in future elections,” said Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt. “The stakes of protecting our Constitution, defending our liberty and ensuring that all votes are counted fairly couldn’t be higher. With this brief, we are joining the fight.”
The Trump campaign announced on the same day that it intends to join the Texas law suit because of the “illegal suspension or violation of state law” which directly calls into question the certification of the results of the elections in Defendant States for Vice President Joe Biden.
The brief filed by Missouri and other states – officially a motion for leave to file a bill of complaint – also highlighted that illegal changes enacted by the state executives and judiciary could have enabled fraud.
