The Case Against Xavier Becerra
Before I launch into the main event—my case against Joe Biden’s nominee for secretary of Health and Human Services, California attorney general Xavier Becerra—it’s worth sparing a moment to discuss important developments in the Texas attorney general’s Supreme Court case against the states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
I went over the rather glaring factual and legal problems with the case in my newsletter Wednesday. Rather than explain them again in detail today, I’ll sum up the basic deficiencies: Texas doesn’t have standing, Texas’s factual claims are almost laughably incoherent, its legal claims have been repeatedly rejected by previous courts, and there is no legal foundation for the remedy they seek.
The president, of course, endorsed it immediately.
