Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr appeared on America’s Newsroom Monday to react to the Justice Department lawsuit against his state’s election law. The Wall Street Journal published an editorial Sunday called out the Biden Justice for playing politics with the suit.

“First of all, The Wall Street Journal is spot on,” Carr told host Dana Perino. “This is just a blatantly political lawsuit. In fact, I’ve said it’s not a lawsuit, it’s a campaign flyer. The Department of Justice is simply playing politics, they are not upholding the rule of law.”

However, the suit is not just political, it’s also unconstitutional. “This blatantly political action taken by the United States Department of Justice is factually, legally, and constitutionally wrong,” Carr said. “Anybody who will actually read the Georgia law sees it strengthens security, it expands access and it improves transparency, and that’s why we will be successful defending this particular action, as we will the other seven.”

President Biden himself has called the law is a “Jim Crow” law. Vice President Harris claims that elections are “under assault” because of the new laws.

This is the eighth lawsuit filed against the Georgia law.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
