Trump’s Lawyer on Fox News Accuses Jack Smith of Contempt of Court – For Doing His Job

This week a federal appeals court will hear arguments relating to Donald Trump’s claim of “presidential immunity” from some the 91 felony charges he is currently facing. It’s a peculiar legal strategy wherein Trump, unlike rational defendants, is choosing to refrain from assertions that he is innocent, in favor of a convincing the court that he is entitled to break any laws that he wants.

Donald Trump, Wah

To assist him in this profoundly eccentric defense, Trump has assembled a crack team of attorneys, featuring former parking lot lawyer, Alina Habba. While she has little to no experience in constitutional or criminal law, she does meet Trump’s highest priority for representation: She looks good on TV. Unfortunately for Trump, that doesn’t help him to prevail in any matter of law.

SEE THIS: WTF? Trump Attorney Says He Should Be Free to Defame, Wrongfully Jail, and Incite Insurrections

On Sunday Habba joined Fox News Senior Trump-fluffer, Maria Bartiromo, for a morning mass and adoration of Dear Leader. The services began with Ava Maria offering Habba an opportunity to probe Trump’s latest assault on special counsel Jack Smith.

Bartiromo: First I want to ask you about special counsel Jack Smith. What is President Trump’s reasoning for wanting him to be held in contempt?
Habba: Because he is in contempt. He has clearly ignored the Court’s stay of the decision, the decision is completely disregarded. Just like anything, the radical left are pushing their own agenda.”

So to summarize, the reason Trump wants Smith to be held in contempt is “because he is in contempt.” Which is the same sort of legal genius that holds that a murderer is guilty because he’s guilty. Habba elaborates on her argument by raising the specter of the invisible but ever present “radical left [who] are pushing their own agenda.” Which, of course, has nothing to do with the matters before this court. She then proceeds to explain the details of the case to Bartiromo and the Fox News cult.

“What happened is there was a stay in the proceeding. That means that all actions, all activities on that case must stop until the issue of presidential immunity is addressed. That means that the president would have immunity during the time, as he was sitting president. The same immunity Biden and Obama and everybody else does.”

Habba’s analysis of the law leaves out a couple of critical factors: “Analysis” and “law.” Her assertion that a stay “means that all actions, all activities on that case must stop.” is ludicrous. A stay does not prohibit attorneys on either side from continuing to work independently on their case. Only the court proceedings are paused. If the prosecutor chooses to keep working, but the defense decides to take a break, that is entirely up to them.

Habba is also mistaken with her opinion on “presidential immunity” when she claims that a stay “means that the president would have immunity during the time.” No it doesn’t. The question of immunity, which is the very principle that resulted in the stay, has not been adjudicated and, therefore, Trump cannot be presumed to have it. Particularly the way he defines it that is so preposterously broad that it would indemnify a president from any crime, including murder. Does he really want to set that legal precedent while Joe Biden is still in the White House?

Special Counsel Smith responded to Trump’s contempt charge saying that “the Government intends to comply with its continuing discovery obligations” so that the pretrial schedule can be resumed after the stay is resolved.

Habba also whined that Jack Smith “has continuously filed motions to inundate our team.” That complaint was specifically addressed by Smith in his response. After reiterating that the government has not violated the stay order, he says that…

“Nothing here requires any action by the defendant, and he fails to explain how the mere receipt of discovery materials that he is not obligated to review, or the early filing of Government pleadings to which he does not yet need to respond, possibly burdens him.”

While all of this was going on, Trump was busy posting rambling and incoherent comments on his failing social media scam, Truth Social. Such as his tediously repetitive claim that “The least I am entitled to is Presidential Immunity on Fake Biden Indictments!”

So if anyone is “pushing their own agenda” while the proceedings are stayed, it’s Trump. Likewise, if anyone is violating the court’s stay order, it’s Trump and Habba. At least by their own definitions. All they are really doing is revealing their fear, desperation and ignorance. This may play well among the MAGA minions, but it isn’t going to go very far in a court of law.

WTF? Trump Attorney Says He Should Be Free to Defame, Wrongfully Jail, and Incite Insurrections

The legal tribulations of Donald Trump have driven him to the farthest reaches of sanity. He has been fiercely defending himself with arguments that assert, not that he is innocent, but that he is entitled to commit any crimes he wants with impunity. it’s what Trump claims is “presidential immunity,” which he believes indemnifies him from everything from jaywalking to hurling his critics off the roof of Trump Tower.

Trump Fear

In addition to having what he thinks is a universal Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free card, Trump also asserts that any criticism of him is “election interference.” That includes any discussion of all of the documented evidence of his multitude of crimes. So when anyone mentions that he has been found liable for sexual assault and defamation, or that he is currently facing 91 felony charges for crimes ranging from financial fraud to undermining democracy, they are guilty of interfering with his divine right to be re-elected.

SEE THIS: Trump Lawyer Complains that Just Factually Reporting His Legal Problems is Election Interference

To underscore these wholly deviant legal analyses, Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, visited with Fox News Senior Trump-Fluffer, Sean Hannity, Thursday night. During their chitchat Habba uttered several eye-rollers that were especially troubling for an alleged lawyer. Topping the list was her theory on the boundless authority of presidents in America.

“What I argue is not for President Trump, it’s for all presidents. It’s for the executive branch. We have to have them be able to govern this country in a way without the fear of someone saying you defamed me, you put me in jail for the wrong reason, you were an insurrectionist, when you were actually just asking for election integrity. Actually asking for us to take a close examination to preserve American constitutional democracy.

“That’s what president Trump has done. And presidential immunity is very important. It’s never been questioned because nobody’s ever been prosecuted like Donald Trump.”

Really? Habba’s observation that “nobody’s ever been prosecuted like Donald Trump” is not the exculpatory revelation that she thinks it is. To the contrary, she is reminding everyone that Trump is a historically unprecedented, recidivist, and unrepentant lawbreaker. That said, let’s take a closer look at Habba’s legal theorizing.

When Habba says that presidents should be able to govern without fear of defaming others, she is asserting that they should be allowed to deliberately lie without having to worry about any consequences for it.

When Habba says that presidents should be free from worrying about unjustly incarcerating people, she is arguing for the right of presidents to lock up their opponents on bogus charges.

When Habba says that presidents must not be burdened with concerns about engaging in insurrections, she is indemnifying them from committing treason.

First of all, would Habba really be comfortable with President Biden having these “freedoms”? But more to the point, fear of consequences for defamation, wrongful jailing, overthrowing the government, and other assaults on democracy, are not the legal hamstringing of a political leader. They are proper and healthy constraints on behavior that is anti-constitutional and anti-American.

However, in Habba’s mind – and in Trump’s – that fear is an imposition on what they regard as their immaculate mandate to reign as tyrants. It interferes with their yearning to rule unencumbered by law or the will of the people.

Habba further demonstrated her disrespect for the Constitution when she told Hannity that the 14th Amendment is just “some obscure section of some statute.” She also sent a subtle, mob-style threat to Trump’s Supreme Court appointees that they had better fall in line, saying that “people like Kavanaugh, who the president fought for, who the president went through hell to get into place, [will] step up.”

The one thing that we can be assured of with Habba is that the more she talks, the more likely it is that Trump will be convicted. Which is a trait she shares with Trump himself. So therefore Ms. Habba, please proceed.

Fearful Trump Unleashes a Flurry of Frantic Posts Attacking His Rape Victim, E. Jean Carroll

The new is year is only four days old, and Donald Trump has spent most of it posting manic messages on his failing social media scam, Truth Social. That’s a peculiar use of his time, considering that he has been complaining that all of his multitude of indictments and lawsuits must be delayed because he doesn’t have enough time to properly respond to them.

Donald Trump, Woman, Fear

Perhaps if Trump devoted more time to his criminal and civil cases, and less to babbling incoherently on social media, staging cult rallies, and golfing, he might be better able to defend himself. Although, even then it would be difficult with the mountains of documentary and testimonial evidence against him, and with his incompetent attorneys.

SEE THIS: Trump Lawyer Complains that Just Factually Reporting His Legal Problems is Election Interference

Case in point: As CNN reported this week, “A federal appeals court denied Donald Trump’s effort to delay his defamation trial set to begin in two weeks.” So January 16 has been set for the start of his trial for defaming writer, E. Jean Carroll. Actually, his second trial. She already won a $5 million dollar judgment against him for defamation and sexual assault.

However, as usual, Trump is his own worst enemy. As a result of his inability to control his big mouth, he is now being sued by Carroll for new offenses. After the first jury found him liable for sexually abusing and defaming Carroll, he appeared on a CNN town hall the next day and defamed her again. Which prompted her second lawsuit. After Trump filed an inanely argued motion for a new trial, the judge concluded that the facts showed that Trump had, in fact, raped Carroll.

SEE ALSO: Ted Lieu Reads Federal Judge’s Confirmation that Trump is a Rapist Into Congressional Record

With the trial date approaching Trump is teetering further over the edge of sanity. On a thirty minute spree Thursday morning Trump posted thirty-one (31!) comments on his vanity website attacking Carroll with irrelevant and out of context quotes and links. Most of them were things she might have written in her entertainment column decades ago. They have absolutely nothing to do with the charges that he assaulted and raped her.

The only thing that Trump can hope to achieve by this is to exacerbate his legal peril and increase the amount of the amended judgment he will have to pay. Unfortunately, it also puts Carroll at risk for harm by Trump’s cult followers who regard him as the victim, rather than her. And it affirms that, as long as Trump is free to attack his victims, judges, prosecutors, and witnesses, he represents a clear and present danger to society. At some point the law needs to step in for the sake of public safety.

UPDATE: Throughout the day Trump continued his sickly obsessive rants, posting 42 more comments about Carroll, for a grand total of 73 for the day. Thirty of the additional posts all had the same exact message attached to many repeats of earlier posts. In it he refuted all the evidence presented in court and denied knowing Carroll, saying “Except for a Fraudulent Case against me, I had no idea who E. Jean Carroll was.” Then, typical of Trump, he attacked the judge hearing the case saying that he is “another Highly Partisan Clinton-Appointed Friend. He should have recused himself long ago!”

Dotard J. Trump is ‘Pleased to Share’ a Report Filled with Already Debunked Election Fraud Lies

As the January 6 anniversary of the violent insurrection that Donald Trump incited approaches, Trump is still yammering that he believes it was a justified action by “patriots” who were angry that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged and stolen” from Trump. Even though he has never produced any evidence to support his utterly unfounded allegations.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

Trump’s tedious obsession with the election he lost to President Biden remains uppermost on his mind despite the fact that he has lost more than 60 court cases contesting the results, and virtually everyone of his own administration’s advisors on election matters told him that there were no irregularities. They include his FBI director, Chris Wray, his DHS chief of cybersecurity, Chris Krebs, and his Attorney General, Bill Barr, who called such claims “bullsh*t.” The only people standing by Trump’s “Big Lie” are Ultra MAGA Republicans, biased right-wing media, and Vladimir Putin…

SEE THIS: Traitor Trump Posts Video of Putin Supporting Him and Attacking the ‘Rottenness’ of U.S. Politics

On Tuesday morning Trump took to his failing social media scam, Truth Social, to present another of his parlays into pure propaganda regarding his humiliating defeat in 2020. This episode consisted of three posts wherein he linked to what he called a “fully verified” report entitled “SUMMARY OF ELECTION FRAUD IN THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN THE SWING STATES,” about which he said…

Page One: “I am pleased to share a Report that is fully verified […] and compiled by the most highly qualified Election Experts in the Country.”

It will surprise no one to learn that the report was neither verified, nor compiled by experts. In fact, there were no authors identified, nor any organization taking responsibility for compiling it. It was a completely anonymous pile of rubbish. And most of it was old and had been completely debunked long ago.

Many of the claims in the 32 page document were attributed to notoriously untrustworthy, Trump-fluffing fringe characters like the Gateway Pundit, Just the News, the Epoch Times, Georgia Star News, and random videos from the rightist YouTube ripoff, Rumble. Trump continued…

Page Two: Remember, I was not campaigning – The 2020 Election was LONG OVER. What I was doing is bringing to light the fact that the Election was, without question, Rigged and Stolen. As President, and Commander-in-Chief, it was my duty to do so! […] Therefore I am entitled to Total Immunity.”

Wrong again! First of all, Trump was bringing nothing to light. Certainly not any proof of election fraud. Secondly, it is not the “duty” of the president to assess or reform the administration of elections. The Constitution places all of that within the jurisdiction of the states.

Trump falsely claimed that “I would have been in violation of my Oath of Office, and the Take Care Clause, which requires the President to ‘take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.'” Nope! The “Take Care” clause refers to Federal laws. None of which applied to the matters that Trump was unlawfully injecting himself into. By Trump’s definition he would be responsible for every state law from murder to jaywalking.

What’s more, Trump is clinging again to his perverse interpretation of “presidential immunity,” that he seems to think absolves him of any accountability for committing any crime. If he were right, that would give Biden the power to rig the next election, or even to treat Trump the way that Putin treats his political opponents, who seem to keep falling out of windows. And Trump continued further…

Page Three: Please study these numbers carefully […] Because the Democrats are already trying to [use] the DOJ, FBI, and local Attorney Generals and D.A.’s to go after Crooked Joe Biden’s Political Opponent – ME.”

No amount of studying will make Trump’s numbers worthy of consideration. They come from well known discredited sources, and have been proven to lack any connection to reality. And despite his desperate and repeated attempts, Trump has never been able to associate Biden or other Democrats with the prosecutors who are trying his cases. The indictments were all brought by citizens sitting on Grand Juries.

Trump is starting the new year the same way he ended the last one: With delusions of election fraud, mired in persecution and victimhood, and fraught with fear of what the future holds for him as result of his unconstrained criminal activities. That bucket of psychoses is going to be at the heart of his presidential campaign straight through until November, if he makes it that long without winding up in a prison or an asylum.

Trump Lawyer Complains that Just Factually Reporting His Legal Problems is Election Interference

Donald Trump and his team of legal “stable geniuses” aren’t wasting any time in the new year contriving ever more outlandish arguments in defense of his unprecedented compendium of crimes. To date he has racked up 91 felony counts ranging from financial fraud, to theft and mishandling of classified materials, to inciting an insurrection, and even to sexual harassment and rape.

Donald Trump Sweating

In the more than three years since Trump lost the election to President Biden, he has maintained a singular fixation on his wholly imaginary allegations of election fraud, asserting that, despite having lost by more than seven million votes, he insists that he won in a landslide. Never mind that he has been unable to produce a shred of evidence to support his wild claims. He clings to his delusions even as many of those who know him best are increasingly coming forward with the truth.

SEE THIS: Crybaby Trump Has a New Year’s Eve Breakdown Over Former Staffers Telling the Truth About Him

On New Year’s Day Trump’s attorney, Christina Bobb, was interviewed on the ultra-rightist, Trump-fluffing “news” network, Newsmax. She was asked about recent reports that Maine’s Secretary of State, Shenna Bellows, had concluded that Trump is ineligible to have his name placed on the Republican primary ballot due to his having violated the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. Section Three of the Amendment prohibits those who have engaged in an insurrection from holding office.

Undeterred by facts or reason, Bobb, endeavored to defend Trump with a familiar refrain that he chants like a mantra. According to Trump, all of the indictments and lawsuits against him are nothing but “election interference.” But Bobb went even farther than that. As reported by The Independent

“An attorney for Donald Trump says that his supporters should not be made to believe that he has legal problems, following a decision to have the former president’s name taken off the Republican ballot in Maine.

Christina Bobb accused opponents of the former president of putting out ‘propaganda’ to harm his 2024 presidential run.”

[Bobb said that] “This narrative that Trump isn’t going to be ineligible, trying to instill fear in the voters that oh, maybe I shouldn’t vote for him… maybe I shouldn’t follow him because he won’t be on the ballot.

“They’re trying to discourage people from supporting Donald Trump thinking he’s got all these legal problems. That is election interference.”

Get it? Bobb is arguing that complying with the Constitution is tantamount to “instilling fear” in voters. But even worse, she says that simply informing voters of Trump’s legal problems is election interference. In Bobb’s mind, if the media reports facts that might discourage people from voting for Trump they are improperly interfering with the election. She is upset that if people learn that Trump has multiple criminal indictments pending it will result in them “thinking he’s got all these legal problems.” And she is appalled that people might think that, even though it’s undeniably true.

In effect Bobb is arguing that merely campaigning against Trump is election interference. Because any criticism from an opponent could result in discouraging votes for Trump. DeSantis couldn’t say that Trump increased the deficit by nearly $8 trillion (which he did). Biden couldn’t say that Trump bragged about being responsible for overturning Roe v Wade (which he did). In the Trump Cult only praise of Trump is permitted.

On the other hand, Trump can spew whatever flagrant lies he wants to with impunity (which he does). All the while charging that his opponents are engaging in election interference. That phrase is one that Trump repeats ad infinitum. In just the last week Trump posted the following comments on his failing social media scam, Truth Social

  • 12/31/23: They had 3 years to file—Now I get their rushed and bad papers on New Year’s Eve. ELECTION INTERFERENCE!
  • 12/29/23: This is the Lunatic A.G. … She is working closely with Crooked Joe Biden’s DOJ, in order to harm his Political Opponent. Election Interference!
  • 12/27/23: They illegally spied on my campaign…and they come after me for Election Interference. Only in America!
  • 12/26/23: Biden’s Flunky, Deranged Jack Smith, should go to HELL. He is helping his Corrupt and Incompetent President to destroy America through Weaponization and ELECTION INTERFERENCE!
  • 12/25/23: 2024 WILL GO DOWN AS THE YEAR OF GREAT AND FULLY COORDINATED ILLEGAL ELECTION INTERFERENCE BY CROOKED JOE BIDEN, THE WORST AND MOST CORRUPT PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES…MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!
  • 12/25/23: It’s all about Election Interference, and Biden was pushing Garland and Monaco to act, AND FAST.
  • 12/24/23: DERANGED JACK SMITH, ARE COMING AFTER ME, AT LEVELS OF PERSECUTION NEVER SEEN BEFORE IN OUR COUNTRY??? IT’S CALLED ELECTION INTERFERENCE. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

If criticism of Trump is election interference, then the same should hold true for Biden. Therefore, Trump’s infantile nickname, “Crooked Joe,” is election interference. So is calling him the “WORST AND MOST CORRUPT PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES.” So are the efforts to impeach him by Republicans in the House of Representatives. So are the attacks on his son, Hunter, and other family members. So are the lies that the economy isn’t strong and getting stronger. And so is nearly everything that Fox News says about Biden.

Finally, the most obvious acts of actual election interference were the insurrection that Trump incited on January 6, 2021, and his attempts to threaten Republican state officials into overturning the election results. But those are the very things that Trump and his lawyer want to suppress and/or blatantly misrepresent. Fortunately, Trump doesn’t control the media, much as he would like to. And as long the American people turn out on election day in November, he won’t get another chance to realize his aspirations of dictatorship. It’s called “Election Interaction!”

Crybaby Trump Has a New Year’s Eve Breakdown Over Former Staffers Telling the Truth About Him

Poor Donald Trump isn’t having a very happy New Year. Instead, he is spending it posting odious outbursts on his failing social media scam, Truth Social. By noon he had posted 41 comments that put his psychoses prominently on display. And that was a holiday abbreviated crop of his crackpot commentary.

Donald Trump, Snowflakes

Despite his hatred of the media that he calls “the enemy of the people,” Trump watches it almost constantly, anchoring himself to his sofa with a Diet Coke, a bucket of KFC, and his remote control. He pays particular attention to any program wherein his name is mentioned. And he takes no days off to let his rancor rest for a while. He’s a 24/7 malice machine. Not even Christmas could keep Trump from delivering one of his animus-fueled rants…

SEE THIS: Crybaby Trump is Whining (Again) About Having a Blue Xmas – Poor Thing

What triggered Trump on this New Year’s Eve was an interview that aired on ABC’s “This Week” that featured three of his former White House staffers (video below). Like many of the people who know Trump best, they have come to recognize just how dangerous he is, and how destructive to American democracy another Trump term would be. As ABC News reported

“Three women who served in former President Donald Trump’s White House are now warning against a possible second Trump term, with one of them saying it could mean ‘the end of American democracy as we know it.’

“For the first time, former White House Communications Director Alyssa Farah Griffin, former White House deputy press secretary Sarah Matthews, and former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson sat down together with ABC News ‘This Week’ co-anchor Jonathan Karl to discuss their roles in speaking out against Trump in the wake of Jan. 6.

“‘Fundamentally, a second Trump term could mean the end of American democracy as we know it, and I don’t say that lightly,’ Griffin, now a co-host of ABC’s ‘The View,’ told Karl, accusing the former president of having gone to ‘historic and unconstitutional lengths’ in attempting to ‘steal a democratic election’ and to stay in power.”

It was Griffin who attracted the brunt of Trump’s anger. Of the 41 posts on Truth Social, 11 were about Griffin. Mostly they were complimentary quotes from when she was still working for him. Trump seems to think that people don’t change their minds after seeing their boss incite an insurrection, and watch with glee as his cult followers smash doors and windows to break into the Capitol, assault police officers and members of Congress, and attempt to prevent the certification of a democratic election.

Griffin’s view that another Trump term could mean “the end of American democracy” was shared by her colleagues. They all spoke about how dangerous Trump is, and his promises of “retribution” should he reoccupy the White House. They acknowledged knowing other former staffers and members of Congress who feel the same way they do, but who aren’t speaking out due to fear of Trump’s threats against them personally and professionally.

They have seen what Trump’s rabid disciples are capable of. In addition to the storming of the Capitol, many of Trump’s critics have had to hire private security to protect them from his fanatic supporters. Which makes the courage of these three women all the more commendable. All of them have received death threats and other obscene harassment. And it isn’t coincidental that Trump’s attacks are directed at women.

The new year is likely to see more of the same sort of bullying and intimidation by Trump and his minions. In fact, it is likely to become even more intense as his legal tribulations continue to unfold. He makes the very same sort of rhetorical assaults on the prosecutors, witnesses, and judges in his cases. Which may – and should – land him jail for contempt of court.

Given the abundance of evidence against him, Trump is certain to be convicted of at least some of the 91 felony charges that he is currently facing. And the prospect of that is gnawing at him day and night. That will undoubtedly produce ever more manic outbursts. Consequently, the sooner Trump is held accountable for his crimes, the better off the nation – and the world – will be. And the sooner that we all can have a truly HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Trump’s Craven Christmas Prayer for Presidential Immunity and an End to Yuletide Witch Hunts

It’s Christmas time, and Donald Trump is joining in on the festivities with caroling in the spirit of the season. Except he’s not getting the words exactly right. “Hark the heinous angel,” whines Trump petulantly about losing an election three years ago and being held accountable for inciting an insurrection and trying to undermine democracy.

Donald Trump Christmas

As is his tradition for the holidays, Trump is filled with anger and animosity toward everyone who he feels has failed to be sufficiently worshipful toward him. The wannabe messiah who pretends to have liberated Americans to say “Merry Christmas,” has a rather bizarre impression of what that means. Meanwhile, President Biden and his family gather together to celebrate the joy that this season brings, despite Fox News mocking them for it…

SEE THIS: Fox News Exposes Biden’s ‘Freak-O-Rama’ Plot to Swap Christmas Cheer with Marxist Hate

On the day before Christmas, Trump took to his failing social media scam, Truth Social, to spread the hatred in his heart. Rather than thinking about family or gifts or world peace, Trump was consumed by the fear of his mounting legal tribulations. He wrote that…

“I wasn’t campaigning, the Election was over. I was doing my duty as President to expose and further investigate a Rigged and Stolen Election. It was my obligation to do so, and the proof found is voluminous and irrefutable. Therefore, among other reasons, of course I am entitled to IMMUNITY. ADDITIONALLY, I DID NOTHING WRONG. Stop the Witch Hunt NOW!”

How inspiring! It’s difficult to tell exactly what Trump was yammering about. But a little research reveals that he was upset with recent developments with regard to his indictments for election interference. His attorneys filed a motion the day before asking that the charges be dismissed. As reported by CNN

“Donald Trump urged a federal appeals court to throw out the federal election subversion criminal case in Washington, DC, again arguing in a filing late Saturday that he is protected under presidential immunity.” […]

“The filing reiterates what the former president’s lawyers have repeatedly asserted – that Trump was working in his official capacity as president to ‘ensure election integrity’ when he allegedly undermined the 2020 election results and therefore has immunity.”

Trump’s legal arguments have all been rejected in prior court proceedings. But that doesn’t stop him from repeating them again, hoping for a different outcome. He also isn’t deterred by the sheer absurdity of his claims. How can he assert that he wasn’t campaigning, and that the election was over, when everything he was trying to do was aimed at overturning the certified election results?

What’s more, Trump’s claims of “presidential immunity” are so preposterously broad that they would indemnify a president from any crime, including murder. Does he really want to set that legal precedent while Joe Biden is still in the White House? Not that Biden would ever do anything like that, but in Trump’s mind, and the minds of his glassy-eyed cult followers, it’s more grist for their crackpot conspiracy theory mills.

Trump’s post also regurgitates his frequent claim to have “voluminous and irrefutable” proof of election fraud. It remains a mystery as to why he has declined to present any of it after more than three years and 60+ court cases. Equally mysterious is Trump’s argument that prosecuting him is unconstitutional. His filing makes the ludicrous assertion that…

“Before any single prosecutor can ask a court to sit in judgment of the President’s conduct, Congress must have approved of it by impeaching and convicting the President. That did not happen here, and so President Trump has absolute immunity. [and that Trump’s indictment] threatens to launch cycles of recrimination and politically motivated prosecution that will plague our Nation for many decades to come.'”

Where Trump gets the idea that Congress must impeach and convict a president prior to any prosecution is anyone’s guess. It’s certainly not anywhere in the Constitution. Nor is his nonsensical notion of immunity. However, he is reminding everyone that he was impeached twice and the second time he was convicted by a majority of the Senate – including seven Republicans – but short of the necessary two-thirds.

More troubling is that Trump is asserting that presidents are above the law and free to commit crimes at will with total impunity. Once again, is he comfortable with Biden having that power? Furthermore, the only party threatening “to launch cycles of recrimination and politically motivated prosecution,” is Trump. And he has done so explicitly.

This is Trump’s Christmas message to his flock. And as with everything else, it is all about Trump. In the midst of the season of giving, Trump can think only of himself. There are no well wishes of joy and peace, and no photos with loving family and excited grandchildren. There is nothing that reflects the harmony and hopefulness of the holidays. In Trump’s demented mind there is only hatred and vengeance. So Merry Christmas to MAGA, and all a good fight?

Trump Unleashes a Fear-Drenched, Lie-Riddled Rant Misstating ‘Facts’ From His Many Indictments

As 2023 winds to close, Donald Trump is exhibiting ever more obvious signs of debilitating anxiety. And with the caravan of legal wagons circling around him, his emotional state is circling the drain. The closer he comes to being held accountable for the multitude of crimes he’s committed, the deeper he descends into desperation driven delusion.

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

The latest example of Trump’s decline is yet another rabid rant on his failing social media scam, Truth Social. It follows a tedious blast of dozens of posts wherein he shamelessly exalts himself, links to wingnut propaganda (i.e. Breitbart, Gateway Pundit, etc.), and cites polls showing him trouncing his Republican primary challengers…

FOR INSTANCE: Traitor Trump Posts Video of Putin Supporting Him and Attacking the ‘Rottenness’ of U.S. Politics

Trump was clearly having another bad morning Saturday when he woke up to find that his legal nightmares had not simply evaporated with the morning dew. So true to form, he regurgitated more of the same slop he’s been shoveling for months about how he is such a beleaguered victim of meanies out to destroy him. And this outburst was just as filled with nonsense as every other one he’s unloaded. He began

“The Supreme Court has unanimously rejected Deranged Jack Smith’s ‘SUPER SPEEDY’ lawsuit against me. This sick puppies team of Lowlifes and Radical Left Thugs could have brought this ‘case’ 3 years ago, and it would be long over by now. No, they waited until right in the middle of my very successful campaign for President.”

Let’s stop there to interject some reality. First of all, the Supreme Court did not “unanimously reject” special counsel Jack Smith’s request (it was not a “lawsuit”) to advance the question of “presidential immunity” over the appellate court. While the request was denied, the Justices’ votes were not revealed. So his claim that it was unanimous was made up. And the denial wasn’t a rejection on the merits. It just means that the matter will be heard at the appellate level before inevitably going back to the Supreme Court.

What’s more, it’s rather bizarre that Trump, who frequently complains that his cases took too long to come to court, is objecting to a request to “SUPER SPEEDY” them up now. In fact, he gripes about that very issue with his remarks about the “sick puppies” who he thinks should have gone after him three years ago. There’s just one little problem with that. Three years ago was prior to when he committed many of his crimes.

Most defendants would prefer an expedited path to what they believe would be their exoneration. But not Trump. Probably because he knows he’s guilty and will be convicted. Also because he hopes to delay the proceedings until he is reelected and can then quash the indictments and/or pardon himself.

Trump’s tirade continued with his boneheaded legal opinion that his indictments should be run through a political filter before being issued. He thinks that somehow his polling should have been weighed prior to his being charged.

“If I were polling poorly, like everyone else against me is (including Crooked Joe Biden!), or, for some reason, I decided not to run, they never would have even brought this ridiculous and disgraceful lawsuit. It is Election Interference like never before seen in our Country.”

So Trump is now babbling about whether he would have been charged were he not campaigning for president. But that’s just further proof of his dementia. For the record, the investigations into his crimes actually did begin before his campaign did. Probes of his hoarding of classified documents began in the summer of 2021, and the FBI opened a formal investigation on March 30, 2022. The election interference investigation in Georgia began 2021, and a grand jury was convened on May 2, 2022. The New York financial fraud case began in 2019, and the Attorney General filed a lawsuit on September 21, 2022. All of that was prior to his November 15, 2022, announcement of his 2024 campaign.

Trump still wasn’t through yammering incoherently. He continued with a preposterous divergence from the issues he himself was raising.

“In a certain way, it is real ‘insurrection,’ especially when adding the millions of people, from places unknown, that the worst President in the history of the United States is allowing to pour into our Country, totally unchecked and unvetted. This insane Open Border’s decision will prove to be a mistake for the ages, but I will fix it. MAGA!!!”

There’s hardly any need to rebut the idiocy Trump is spewing there. No sane person believes that any of what Trump is saying constitutes an insurrection. He’s just trying to use projection, and doing so really badly. Furthermore, no one believes that President Biden is “the worst President in the history of the United States.” To the contrary, most Americans say that’s Trump. And no knowledgeable person believes that the borders are open. If they were there wouldn’t be record numbers of apprehensions and expulsions.

Trump’s latest hysterical harangue affirms just how low he has sunk psychologically. And just when you think he’s hit bottom, he finds another level of depth that no one could have imagined. That’s his superpower. And we should not be surprised if he sinks even farther in the weeks and months ahead.

Jim Jordan Babbles About Trump When Asked on Fox News for Evidence to Impeach President Biden

The ongoing circus that the clowns (aka Republicans) in the House of Representatives are trying to pass off as an impeachment inquiry of President Biden continues to prove that they have nothing to support their transparently partisan and vengeance-driven farce. And immune as they are to humiliation, they just keep digging themselves into ever deeper trenches.

Jim Jordan, Biden's Emails

Ever since the GOP assumed their razor-thin (and shrinking) majority in the House, they have devoted themselves to a purely political pursuit aimed at disparaging Biden and other Democrats. It has been their singular obsession, dispensing with any pretense of serving the American people. And despite their intense focus on fictitious faultfinding, they remain breathtakingly bad at it. But that doesn’t deter them from bragging about it…

SEE THIS: GOP Speaker Admits the Purpose of the Biden Impeachment Inquiry is to Hurt Biden Politically

Wednesday morning Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, visited with his pals at the GOP’s Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News. However, he was startled by a un-Fox like question that actually sought to extract some useful information. Anchor John Roberts asked…

“We don’t know if it exists even – and I think a lot of people want to know about this – is where is the evidence of wrongdoing Joe Biden’s part.”

That’s a good question that has been asked repeatedly by bona fide journalists on other news networks. And Republicans have never been able to come up with a coherent answer. This occasion was no different. Jordan awkwardly stumbled around with an “everything but the kitchen sink” approach to bull manure spreading. He didn’t even bother address the question of Biden’s alleged wrongdoing. His answer was all about Trump…

“The 14th Amendment doesn’t talk about the office of the President in that section of the 14th Amendment. And, frankly, the president was put on trial and found not guilty by the United States Senate when the Democrats did their second crazy impeachment of him before. But the scariest thing of all in my judgment is the escalation with what the left will do to try to keep him out of The White House. I mean, first it was they spied on his campaign. then it was the Mueller investigation. Then it was the impeachment. Then it was raiding his home. Then it was indicting him in four different locations.”

Having completely avoided any discussion of evidence against Biden, Jordan just rattled off everything that Trump has been whining about for the past three years. It’s just Jordan’s way of shoveling too much crapola for anyone to rebut in a time-constrained television segment. And it was hardly a plot carried out by the left. Let’s take a look at his malarkey…

“The 14th Amendment doesn’t talk about the office of the President.”
No, but it does talk about being “a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State…”

“The president was put on trial and found not guilty by the United States Senate.”
No he wasn’t. And it wasn’t a trial. A majority of Senators (57), including seven Republicans, voted to convict and remove Trump from office in the second impeachment. But the Senate requires a two-thirds majority. It was not, however, a decree of not guilty.

“They spied on his campaign.”
No they didn’t. The FBI did investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election, and Trump and his associates just happened to be closely connected to much of it.

“Then it was the Mueller investigation.”
Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who was appointed by Donald Trump. The Justice Department was run by Republican Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“Then it was the impeachment.”
The person solely responsible for Trump’s impeachments was Trump. He’s the one who tried to extort the president of Ukraine to get him to find dirt on Biden. And he tried to stage a violent coup to retain power after he lost the 2020 election.

“Then it was raiding his home.”
Trump’s home was not raided. He was served a lawful subpoena that he failed to comply with and lied to the FBI. That resulted in a search of his Mar-a-Lago home/hotel that found hundreds of classified documents.

“Then it was indicting him in four different locations.”
Once again, there was no plot by the left. It was Trump’s unlawful conduct and failure to cooperate that was the reason for his four indictments on 91 felony counts.

So Jordan’s response simply reminded everyone about all of Trump’s criminal activities, rather than providing the evidence against Biden that he was asked about. That’s not an especially smart way to advance his smear campaign. But in his defense, he was faced with a crippling dilemma wherein there isn’t any evidence against Biden, but mountains of it against Trump. So what else could he talk about?

Traitor Trump Posts Video of Putin Supporting Him and Attacking the ‘Rottenness’ of U.S. Politics

For most of his life Donald Trump has made it a practice of bragging about his relationships with notable people. Whether it was celebrities or athletes or politicians, Trump latched unto anyone who he thought could advance his status in society. It was mostly a futile and pathetic effort that only emphasized his own desperation and impotence.

Donald Trump Vladimir Putin

Nevertheless, Trump believed that such associations made him more popular and he pursued them relentlessly. It’s why he rebranded his failing reality TV game show “The Apprentice,” as “Celebrity Apprentice.” It’s why he couldn’t resist dining with the repugnant anti-Semite Kanye West. And it’s why he isn’t shy about expressing his admiration for brutal tyrants like Kim Jong Un, Xi Jinping, and even Adolf Hitler.

SEE THIS: FOX NEWS IS APPALLED that Trump Quoting Hitler Might Get More Press than a Selfie Sex Video

Among the dictators who Trump idolizes is, of course, his BFF, Vladimir Putin. Trump is still grateful for Putin’s help getting him elected in 2016. He took Putin’s word over that of U.S. intelligence as to whether Russia interfered in that election. And he has never had a derogatory thing to say about the Russian despot. To the contrary, he praises him as “strong” and “brilliant.”

On Sunday Trump went further and posted a video to his failing social media scam, Truth Social, wherein Putin had some praise of his own for his flunky, Donald Trump. The praise comes in the form of criticism of President Biden. Trump seems to think that Putin taking shots at Biden helps him, even though it’s coming from an avowed enemy of America. In the clip Putin brought up the legal tribulations of Trump and offered his opinion about what he regarded as political persecution…

“As for Trump’s prosecution, what is going on in present circumstances is very good for us. Because it shows rottenness in the U.S. political system that can’t claim to teach others democracy. What happens to Trump is politically motivated prosecution of a political rival.”

It is jarring to hear Putin, who regularly has his rivals incarcerated or murdered, complaining about Trump being the victim of a “politically motivated prosecution.” It’s also 100% false. Putin is agreeing with Trump’s lies that the prosecutions by special counsel, Jack Smith, and state attorneys general are biased. He has no more proof of that than Trump or his Republican confederates do. But as far as Trump is concerned, it’s a vote of confidence from someone he respects and, in many ways, answers to. Although it should be troubling to the American people that Trump is leaning on Putin’s legal analysis for support.

It’s also important to remember that the 91 felony counts pending against Trump were issued by an independent Grand Jury comprised of citizen jurors, not a political agency. But Putin’s remarks conveniently include criticism of the U.S. political system that both he Trump are obsessed with denigrating. They both benefit by tearing down the American system and its values.

By posting this video, Trump is promoting and agreeing with Putin’s attack on America’s administration of law. That is a profoundly un-American position for a former – and prospective future – president of the United States to take. It exposes his disloyalty to the nation and his allegiance to one of our most determined and hostile foes. That alone should disqualify Trump from holding any office of influence in the United States.

Unfortunately, if Trump’s cult followers, and the right-wing press, don’t see any problem with Trump quoting Hitler, they aren’t going to object to his embrace of Putin either. They are fellow travelers on a path to authoritarian fascism, and aren’t going to let a little thing like Democracy or the Constitution get in their way. So it’s up to the rest of us exercise our democratic rights to vote them out of every office in order to preserve our principles and freedom.
