While the Supreme Court has rejected taking up Texas v. Pennsylvania, attorney Lin Wood on Newsmax TV said he is hopeful his case will be heard on merit and standing; otherwise, President Donald Trump and Martial law might be in order.
"The premise of my case is simple: I take the position the Nov. 3 election was unlawful and unconstitutional, because the election was held using procedures for mail absentee ballots that were developed by the secretary of state in a backroom deal over the Democratic Party of March of 2020," Wood told Saturday's "The Count" with co-hosts Tom Basile and Heather Childers.
"They changed the procedures and you cannot change the procedures in a federal election unless it is done by the state legislature. So, for that reason, the election is unlawful, the recount that followed was unlawful, and the Jan. 5 runoff is unlawful."
Wood's case is filed with the Supreme Court against Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
"I believe my case has merit," Wood told Basile. "I hope the Supreme Court will agree to hear it."
On standing, Wood said he is filing his lawsuit as a voter in Georgia, which makes him the "property party to file the lawsuit."
Wood noted Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton's Texas v. Pennsylvania case was rejected Friday night not on merit, but standing. He added his calls for a special Georgia legislative session has been ignored by GOP Gov. Brian Kemp, GOP Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, GOP Secretary of State Raffensperger, and GOP Attorney General Chris Carr.
"They're not very responsive," Wood lamented. "I think that's because they've been corrupted by Chinese money, and they've got something to hide."
If the U.S. Supreme Court continues to deny to hear election lawsuits, Wood suggested, Trump should declare "some extent of Martial law."
"If the Supreme Court does not act, someone who cares about the rule of law in this country has to act: That would be President Donald Trump," Wood concluded. "If the Supreme Court does not act, I think the president should declare some extent of Martial law, and he should hold off an stay the electoral college.
"Because we cannot have in this country, an election of our leader, where you have massive evidence of fraud and illegality. This country has to have a vote that has integrity. And the electoral college does not need to meet and vote until we have resolved these issues."
