Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.
Get the fuck outta here!
None of the nine justices, including the three appointed by Trump, ruled in favour of granting relief.

Pascrell cites Section II of the Fourteenth Amendment which disqualifies any individuals who seek to attack American democracy (Congress can also exclude members by a majority vote, as acknowledged by the US Supreme Court in Powell v. McCormack):
Today I’m calling on House leaders to refuse to seat any Members trying to overturn the election and make donald trump an unelected dictator. pic.twitter.com/icTmGKCpuR— Bill Pascrell, Jr. (@BillPascrell) December 11, 2020
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
In his letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Administration Chairwomen Zoe Lofgren, Pascrell states the Fourteenth Amendment "was written to prevent the destruction of the United States from without and within". These 126 Republicans have violated "the text and spirit of the Constitution" by attempting to "tear the United States government apart", to "demolish democracy" by "invalidating the clear results of the 2020 election". All of these Members-elect have supported, in a filing with the Supreme Court, installing an unelected dictator. They do not support the United States and its system of democracy and none of them should be permitted a seat in the 117th Congress.
The text of the 14th Amendment expressly forbids Members of Congress from engaging in rebellion against the United States. Trying to overturn a democratic election and install a dictator seems like a pretty clear example of that. pic.twitter.com/VMnDfd0sFx— Bill Pascrell, Jr. (@BillPascrell) December 11, 2020
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment was written after the Civil War to bar from government any traitors who would seek to destroy the Union.— Bill Pascrell, Jr. (@BillPascrell) December 11, 2020
