Will Justice Barrett Abstain?
As time runs out before the states’ electors are seated, a momentous Supreme Court decision could come down in literally minutes, regarding voter fraud in the general election. There is still ongoing litigation in Georgia and Wisconsin and those states are considered outcome determinative. And if and when the case reaches SCOTUS, all eyes will be on Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the newest member of the Supremes.
During a discussion on Jay Sekulow Live, hosted by Team Trump legal attorney Jay Sekulow, a phone caller into the program basically asked if Justice Barrett would abstain from voting on the historic case, or outright recuse herself. Sekulow, who also represented Trump in the impeachment hearings, was quick to respond. “She does not have to abstain. Each justice makes that own decision. She did not say she was going to abstain and regardless of the outcome of this election, she’s on for life.”
The panel went on to emphasize that Barrett was never involved in any case in this election cycle, anyway. So for her to abstain wouldn’t make any sense.ARVE Error: need id and provider
