JUDGE: Trump’s ‘Frivolous’ Lawsuit is ‘The Stuff of Which Violent Insurrections Are Made’

The nine month saga of Donald Trump’s crusade to overturn an election and subvert democracy is proceeding with more humiliating consequences for Trump and his accomplices. Trump is undeterred by recent embarrassments like the revelation that he admitted to pressuring the Department of Justice to “Just Say the Election Was Corrupt,” and his having claimed for himself the exclusive “right” to destroy America. The Former Guy just continues to suffer the disgrace of defeat in every legal battle he takes on.

The latest court smackdown for the Trump camp comes in the form of a sanction by a judge in Colorado. The judge lambasted Trump’s attorneys for bringing a case challenging the 2020 presidential election that was “frivolous,” “not warranted by existing law” and filed “in bad faith.” As reported by the Washington Post

“In a scathing 68-page opinion, Magistrate Judge N. Reid Neureiter found that the lawyers made little effort to corroborate information they had included in the suit, which argued there had been a vast national conspiracy to steal the election from former president Donald Trump. […]

“Calling the suit ‘one enormous conspiracy theory,’ Neureiter ordered that the duo must pay the legal fees of all the individuals and companies they had sued — 18 separate entities in all — as a way to deter future similar cases.”

The judge made a point of chastising the attorneys “for quoting Trump in their legal filing,” regarding a baseless claim that “voting machines manufactured by the company Dominion Voting Systems had ‘deleted 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide.'” Dominion has filed a billion dollar lawsuit against Fox News for making the same unfounded claim that this judge called “‘highly disputed and inflammatory.”

The bizarre lawsuit by Trump’s team was filed as a class action on behalf of 160 million American voters who have not agreed to be members of the class. However the most damning criticism from the judge came when he unambiguously linked the Trump lawsuit to the riots in Washington, D.C., on January 6th:

“Albeit disorganized and fantastical, the Complaint’s allegations are extraordinarily serious and, if accepted as true by large numbers of people, are the stuff of which violent insurrections are made.”

The judge’s recognition of the potential for future hostilities by a deranged faction of Trump cultists is a realistic observation of how Trump’s anti-democratic tirades could get even uglier going forward. And it’s significant that he’s sanctioning the attorneys for their misconduct.

There must be more of this sort of punishment for lawyers who purposefully abuse the judicial system. And there must be punishment for Trump as well, whose efforts to orchestrate a coup and crown himself America’s first dictator are anti-American and a clear and present danger to the nation.

  1. I agree with all of the above – what I feel needs to happen is one of these many suits settled with a large wadge of cash out of TrumpetArse’s pockets or Rudy’s, or FauxNews, or his lawyers and in fact any other proTrumpist/the election was stolen conspiracist. Enforce the fines. Enforce the settlements. People need to see that otherwise the court rulings mean zero. It;s a lot of meaningless numbers.

    Oh, and yours truly got 12 hours in Twitter jail for saying the obvious – that Liz Harrington is repeating TrumpetArse’s idiocies and he was allegedly banned for repeating misinformation about a civic process. Seven nanoseconds after posting, I got the announcement I was in Twitter jail for breaking the ‘hateful conduct’ rule, despite the fact that race, gender, nationality, religion etc had not been mentioned anywhere; nor had violence been suggested or offered. I asked them to point out exactly where I had gone wrong, and three days later got, ‘The decision stands’ – but not WHY. It was no different to anything else that was being stated on that thread.

    • Great post. Thanks for serving time for the cause.

    • Twitter is twitless. Got to be monitored by Trumplicans, who think they don’t hav etc justify themselves.
      Hoping to be de-tweeted in another few weeks. Working hard not to hit tweet button. Not easy…..sigh.
