When the U.S. Supreme Court again denied hearing their case, three Trump supporters are prepared to carry out their “plan C” to reinstate him as president.
Roland Brunson, one of the plaintiffs in the case seeking to overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election and reinstall former President Donald Trump in the White House, said in a Facebook post-Tuesday that the Supreme Court had once again rejected a try to hear the case, effectively ending the already slim chance that current President Joe Biden would be removed from the White House.
“[Second] Petition denied,” Brunson wrote in the Facebook post. “Moving on to plan C. I will say more about that within the next few days. We have been working long and hard on these strategies and there are more to come.”
“We understand this to be a possible long but worthy goal,” he added. “The result is that everyone in this nation will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the candidate of their choice will be bound by their oath to protect the rights and freedom of the people they represent.”
The case claims that Legislature violated their oaths of office by neglecting to investigate foreign interference in the 2020 presidential election, which the brothers contend tilted the election against Trump.
The Brunson brothers appealed the court’s judgment on the case after it was originally refused on January 9, only to have it denied again on Tuesday.
It is currently unknown what they expect to achieve. While Trump has not abandoned his unfounded accusations of an election rigged against him, he has begun to look ahead, formally running as a Republican candidate on the ballot in 2024.
Meanwhile, Trump and his allies face possible prosecution for attempting to change the result of the 2020 election in Georgia’s swing state, after a special grand jury’s referral to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to issue indictments based on its findings.
Brunson, on the other hand, is not giving up.
“I’m baffled with [the] fact that the opponents of this case are against the Oath of Office, which is the only instrument that protects the Constitution,” he wrote in another Facebook post prior to the Supreme Court’s decision. “It’s obvious that those who fiercely object to this case would like to see the Constitution dismantled, torn apart, or altogether eliminated.”
