Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) joined Hans Van Spakowsky at Heritage Foundation on Wednesday to discuss the 2020 presidential election.
Rand Paul is one of the few Republican leaders who is not afraid to question the fraud and abnormalities of the 2020 election.
Paul also argued that the courts did not fully hear President Trump’s election fraud challenges which is true. US Courts including the US Supreme Court refused to hear any of the legitimat challenges by the Trump Campaign.
The Epoch Times reported via Pro-Trump News.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said former President Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud were not fully heard by various state and federal courts.
He said that a number of lawsuits that were filed by Trump’s team were dismissed on standing rather than the merits of the argument. Following the Nov. 3 election, Trump’s legal team filed dozens of suits in different states; most were thrown out before being heard due to a lack of standing.
“The one thing I think is untrue is that the courts fully heard this,” Paul said at a Heritage Foundation event this week. “Courts have been hesitant to get involved in elections.”
Paul added that judges have to decide whether officials, including secretaries of state, can change election laws without permission or votes from state legislatures. State officials, citing the COVID-19 pandemic, made various changes to election laws, including expanding the deadline and requirements for mail-in balloting.
The Kentucky Republican also said states should pass election integrity laws that specifically say a secretary of state can’t create a rule to mail out ballots or make changes if the law doesn’t expressly give them the power to do so, according to the Washington Times.
