Trump, 17 states ask Supreme Court to hear Texas-led election challenge:
President Trump and 17 Republican-led states gave their support Wednesday to a Supreme Court lawsuit brought by Texas that seeks to overturn Democrat Joseph R. Biden’s wins in four swing states, while the president also urged congressional Republicans to join in the last-ditch complaint against election fraud.
“This is the big one,” Mr. Trump said in a tweet as his legal team filed a motion to join the case. “Our Country needs a victory! How can you have a presidency when a vast majority think the election was RIGGED?”
Congressional Republicans also were being urged to sign on to the Texas case in a “friend of the court” brief. The president called Rep. Mike Johnson, Louisiana Republican, to thank him for recruiting GOP colleagues to support what Mr. Trump called the “very strong” lawsuit.
“He specifically asked me to contact all Republican members of the House and Senate today, and request that all join on to our brief,” Mr. Johnson told House GOP colleagues in an email. “He said he will be anxiously awaiting the final list to review.”
Texas was joined in the case Wednesday by Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia. --->READ MORE HERE

Trump asks Cruz to argue Texas case:
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.
The court has not yet agreed to hear the case on its merits and on Tuesday rejected efforts by pro-Trump attorneys to overturn the results in Pennsylvania in a separate case.
White House officials did not immediately return a request for comment from The Hill. --->READ MORE HERE
