Trump’s Lawyers Have a Shiny New Excuse for His Hoarding Classified Documents at Mar-a-Lago

The Washington Post recently published a story that revealed the trouble Donald Trump is having securing the services of any reputable attorneys. Among those who have signed on are “a Florida insurance lawyer who’s never had a federal case, a past general counsel for a parking-garage company and a former host at far-right One America News.” Not exactly the A (or even D) Team.

As a result, the legal acrobatics employed to extricate Trump from his magisterial morass are becoming ever more bizarre and harmful to his own ends. The stream of excuses given for his having bugged out of the White House with a few dozen boxes of highly sensitive national security documents have changed almost daily and often contradict each other. For instance…

  • Well, there were no documents at all.
  • Okay, there were documents but they were just personal mementos and family photos.
  • Okay, there were also documents that were official business that Trump took home to study.
  • Okay, Trump was allowed to have all of the documents, and besides, what about Obama?
  • Okay, Any classified documents were packed by someone else and Trump didn’t know what was in them.
  • Okay, the classified documents that were found were planted there by the FBI.
  • Okay, none of the documents were classified because Trump secretly declassified them.
  • Okay, they are still classified, but you can’t have them because they’re protected by attorney-client privilege.

Now we can add a new reason for Trump absconding with these highly sensitive materials which, by the way, don’t have to be classified for Trump to be in violation of the law: He was protecting them and keeping them safe from some unspoken threat. No really. This is what his own lawyers are saying on television. Let’s start with what Christina Bobb, the former One America News host, told Laura Ingraham of Fox News:

Ingraham: Was there a limited number of people who had access to that storage room? It seems like a pretty important room, right? They made such a big deal of it.
Bobb: Yes. Certainly Mar-a-Lago is secure in and of itself. Just getting on to the compound is hard. And it was a locked door and getting back down into the basement, there’s security. You can’t just walk down there. Only certain members of staff can get there. Then there’s only one key.”

Well then, since there was a “locked door” there was surely nothing to worry about. After all, a locked door at a hotel is just as secure as the well-guarded, vault-like facilities on government property. And not just anyone can get into Mar-a-Lag. Well, unless they book a room, or are invited to a wedding, or are a Chinese spy. And is Bobb suggesting that the staff who do have access have all received security clearances?

There was another prominent Trump attorney who floated the same deranged defense for Trump’s criminal acts. Rudy Giuliani, who has his own legal problems, visited the Trump-fluffers at Newsmax and told them that…

“Now they want to make Trump responsible for having taken classified documents and preserve them. Really, if you look at the Espionage Act, it’s not really about taking the documents. It’s about destroying them or hiding them or giving them to the enemy. It’s not about taking them and putting them in a safe place that’s roughly as safe as they were in the first place.”

Well then, Trump was only being a concerned citizen seeking to protect the documents he took without permission, denied having, and refused to return after being subpoenaed. However, Giuliani is mistaken about the Espionage Act. It actually does prohibit taking such documents. And, once again, he can’t really believe that Mar-a-Lago is just as safe as the National Archives, can he?

RELATED: LOL: Trump Thinks the FBI Search of His Mar-a-Lago Bunker Has Boosted GOP Electoral Prospects

What makes the statements by both of these Trump lawyers troubling for their client is that they both amount to de facto confessions. They both admit that the documents Trump took were classified and/or required safekeeping. So, in effect, they are admitting that Trump broke the law and put the national security of the United States at risk. It will interesting to see them rebut themselves when this is brought up in court by whatever new incompetent lawyers Trump manages to dig up.

GUILTY Steve Bannon Only Has One Disappointment? And It’s Apparently that He’s a Flaming Moron

Justice was served Friday morning when Donald Trump’s former campaign boss and White House advisor, “Sloppy” Steve Bannon was found guilty on two counts of contempt of Congress. It was a pretty open-and-shut case considering that Bannon didn’t even offer a defense for his having refused to comply with lawful subpoenas.

Click here to Tweet this article

Following the verdict, Bannon gave a statement outside of the courthouse, which has been his practice for the past few days that the trial has been in progress. And true to form, Bannon merely unleashed his incoherent rage in bursts of insults and nonsense. After disingenuously “thanking” the jury that convicted him for “whatever they did,” Bannon babbled…

“I only have one disappointment. And that is the gutless members of that show trial committee, the J6 committee, didn’t have the guts to come down here and testify in open court.”

REALLY? Who wants to tell Bannon that the members of the House Select Committee investigating the insurrection that Trump incited, had no obligation to appear before that court? They had no relevant testimony to contribute. They weren’t even asked to show up. The crime that Bannon was charged with was his failure to comply with a lawful subpoena. The evidence of that was obvious and undisputed. Bannon even bragged about it.

Bannon is actually lucky that Committee members weren’t witnesses at his trial. It would only have made things worse for him as they could have supplied more testimony and documentation of his obvious guilt. And yet, he somehow believes that their absence is his sole disappointment? Yeah, right.

Furthermore, Bannon’s hysterical post-verdict venting was a display of Olympic-grade hypocrisy. It was, after all, Bannon who “didn’t have the guts” to “testify in open court” at his own trial. Nor did he have the guts to testify before the January 6th Committee in support of his almighty messiah Trump. Why is that all of Trump’s most devoted disciples have been too scared to take the oath and tell the truth about him? Which Trump has whined about, despite being the reason for it.

RELATED: Crybaby Trump Slams the January 6th Committee For Nixing His Witnesses – Who Refused to Testify

It was Trump who pretended that he could grant executive privilege to potential witnesses so that they would not have to testify. But why would anyone want to prevent testimony from those who they allegedly believed would exonerate them? Even so, Trump eventually released Bannon from that imaginary constraint by waiving the privilege that he didn’t have to begin with. And Bannon still refused to comply with the subpoenas. The only “gutless” party in this matter is Bannon.

RELATED: LOLOL: Trump Waives Privilege He Doesn’t Have So Bannon Can Lie to the January 6th Committee

However, Bannon has good reason to be afraid. His partner in crime, Trump’s former White House trade advisor, Peter Navarro, has already confessed to allegations associated with Trump’s seditious coup conspiracy, and explicitly named Bannon as a co-conspirator. And although Trump issued him a pardon, Bannon could still be liable for tangential crimes related to his border wall scam that ripped off Trump supporters.

Bannon is now directly challenging Rudy Giuliani for the title of Dumbest Trump-Fluffing Blowhard. And if Giuliani doesn’t make any more appearances fondling himself in Borat movies, Bannon may actually take the lead.

Rudy Giuliani is OUTRAGED that Fox News Isn’t Hyping the ‘Vicious’ (Gentle Pat) He Suffered

This is terrible news for The Onion and other producers of political satire. It has been long coming that the alternative “reality” of right-wing politicians and pundits would supersede the work of comedians. Donald Trump has led the MAGA (Make America Gag Again) movement with his increasingly preposterous outbursts that would make a street-corner schizoid cringe.

Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump

With cartoonish figures like Marjorie Taylor Greene and MyPillow’s Mike Lindell challenging the professional humorists, it was bound to happen that the balance of parody power would shift to the Trumpian GOP crackpots who present their gags as truth.

RELATED: Trump Does a Great Job of Proving How Pitifully Stupid He and His Cult Followers Are

On Sunday Trump’s disgraced lawyer, Rudy Giuliani (whose license has been suspended), suffered a “horrific” assault in a Staten Island grocery store. He claimed that the attack resulted in severe injuries and, but for his astonishing good health, would have killed him. See the frightful thwacking here for yourself…

“All of a sudden I feel a shot on my back, like somebody shot me. I went forward, but luckily I didn’t fall down. Luckily I’m a 78 year old in pretty good shape, cause if I wasn’t I would have hit the ground and probably cracked my skull.”

The following day, and after the video had been widely distributed, Giuliani continued to portray the incident as a heinous act of domestic terrorism…

“I got hit on the back as if a boulder hit me. It knocked me forward a step or two. It didn’t knock me down, but it hurt tremendously.”

However, the grisly violence was only the beginning of what infuriated Giuliani. The media response was like a the knife twisting in his near fatal wound…

“One of the only two living ex-mayors of New York – and probably, I’d say modestly, the most famous – was assaulted, was not even on Fox. Even if Putin got assaulted, it would be on Fox.”

First of all, you have to wonder which of the three living ex-mayors (Giuliani, Bill de Blasio and Michael Bloomberg) Giuliani thinks is dead. Perhaps he thinks he actually did succumb to the grocery store stunt. Secondly, if Vladimir Putin received a little love tap like the one Giuliani got it would only have made Fox News if it came from that RINO, Melania.

It isn’t surprising that Giuliani is upset with Fox News. He has already been banned from the network because he wouldn’t stop lying about election fraud on behalf of Trump. Fox is apparently sensitive about that sort of deceit since they are being sued for billions of dollars by two voting systems companies that they defamed – Dominion and Smartmatic.

Giuliani is named as a defendant in both lawsuits. And it can’t be helpful to his defense that he is making up stories about being attacked. Not that his credibility wasn’t already shot long ago. Now he is whining that a harmless, albeit non-consensual, touching is akin to an actual shooting. This is what it’s come to. And satire is the real victim here.

Apparently Inebriated? Rudy Giuliani Countersues Over Smartmatic Suit Against Him and Fox News

Among the most egregious of the many broken promises of Donald Trump’s torturous one-term tenancy in the White House was his predictably improbable claim that he would always hire “the best people.” And Trump himself has been the best witness to the absurdity of that pledge. The list of former Trump staffers that he now says are losers and idiots who were never up to the job could wallpaper the entire exterior of Mar-a-Lago.

Click here to Tweet this article

Rudy Giuliani

That list includes Trump’s cabinet secretaries, his chief of staff, generals and other Pentagon officials, and legal representatives. Which brings us to his long time lawyer, the apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani. Since heading up Trump’s legal team, Giuliani has lost more than sixty cases related to Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. He has also lost his license to practice law in New York, and is being investigated in Washington, D.C. His relentless and unabashed lies even got him banned on Fox News.

RELATED: Disgraced Trump Toady Rudy Giuliani has Been Banned from … Fox News?

Giuliani has also been named in a couple of multibillion dollar lawsuits filed by election services companies that were defamed by Trump associates and Trump-fluffing media. One of the suits was filed by Dominion Voting Systems for $1.6 billion. The other one was filed by Smartmatic Software for $2.7 billion. Both explicitly cite Giuliani as a named defendant, along with Fox News and other individuals.

Now Giuliani is fighting back with a countersuit against Smartmatic. Reuters is reporting that…

“Rudolph Giuliani has sued Smartmatic to recoup legal fees as he defends against its $2.7 billion lawsuit accusing him, Fox News Network and others of falsely claiming that the company helped rig the 2020 U.S. presidential election so Joe Biden would defeat Donald Trump.

“In a counterclaim filed late Monday in a New York state court in Manhattan, Giuliani said the voting machine company’s defamation lawsuit, which he characterized as baseless, interfered with his constitutional right to speak freely on issues of public concern.”

Considering the fact that Smartmatic’s suit contains an abundance of documentary evidence to prove their claims against Giuliani and the his co-defendants, it’s hard to imagine on what grounds he is basing his complaint. Giuliani’s defamatory statements were made on national television programs where he unleashed bizarre and baseless charges asserting that Smartmatic was “formed by people close to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his late predecessor Hugo Chavez, and founded ‘for the specific purpose of fixing elections.'” Then again, almost all of his charges are bizarre and baseless.

RELATED: WTF? Giuliani Says He’s Stashed ‘Evidence’ Against Hillary Clinton in His Bedroom for Years

Giuliani is also asserting that his First Amendment rights are being infringed upon. But the First Amendment doesn’t shield speech that is false and defamatory. And any honest and competent lawyer would know that. Which, of course, leaves Giuliani out. The only thing he will accomplish with this suit is to bring more attention to his pathetic ineptitude, as well as the guilt of his client, Donald Trump. So bring it on, Rudy, and pass the popcorn.

WTF? Giuliani Says He’s Stashed ‘Evidence’ Against Hillary Clinton in His Bedroom for Years

Donald Trump’s legal troubles have lately been accumulating at a rapid pace. He is currently being investigated by authorities in New York, Georgia, and Washington, D.C. And just this week there were new revelations about his mishandling (i.e. shredding and flushing) of classified documents, and his longtime accounting firm disavowing him and his financial reporting for the past ten years.

Rudy Giuliani

So this would seem like a particularly problematic time for his lawyer to be shooting off his mouth with bizarre and potentially incriminating bluster. But that’s exactly what Rudy Giuliani is doing. Giuliani was interviewed Tuesday on Newsmax where he made some awkward news. [Note: He has been banned from Fox News. Both he and Fox are being sued for spreading Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen”]. The segment included a discussion about the recent court filing by special counsel John Durham that the Trump-fluffing conservative press has been flagrantly distorting (i.e. lying) as “proof” that Trump was spied on by Hillary Clinton:

“I don’t think Trump knew about it back then. I can’t tell you exactly how, but I know how he knew about it back then. There’s a lot more to come out. They may feel that it’s gobbledygook, but it’s gobbledygook supported by about a thousand pieces of evidence, none of which have been revealed yet. I happen to have it in my bedroom, or my den, actually. I’ve had it there for years. As well as the fraudulent elections. Both.”

Really? First of all, Giuliani’s account of what Trump knew and when is puzzling, to say the least. He didn’t know, but he knew, and Giuliani knew that he knew, but he can’t say how. Okay.

More importantly, Giuliani is confessing that he has been hoarding “a thousand pieces of evidence” (aka gobbledygook) that he claims would support the Durham Nothingburger. It’s a cornucopia of criminal discoveries that Giuliani has kept under his bed for years.

The obvious first question, that no one on Newsmax asked, ought to be “Why have you been keeping all of this secret for so long?” If Giuliani has the goods on Clinton, you would think that he would have made it all public long ago. The same goes for whatever election fraud evidence he is also claiming to have squirreled away. For some inexplicable reason he participated in sixty court cases trying to overturn the 2020 election, but never produced his bedroom files. [Not to be confused with his scene from Borat 2]

In the same Newsmax interview, Giuliani addressed his subpoena to testify before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection. There have been reports recently suggesting that he agreed to “fully cooperate” with Committee. However, his remarks on Newsmax seem to contradict those reports:

“How can you have any confidence in this committee which, by the way, is illegal and doesn’t have a minority membership. I feel they can’t subpoena anybody? We’re watching it in retrospect and in real time. January 6th is nothing more than Russian collusion with another name and a new lie and a new set of crazy exaggerated, ‘It’s worse than September 11. It’s worse than Pearl Harbor. It’s worse than the Civil War. It’s worse than the end of the world!’ You can tell when they’re lying. They exaggerate.”

Giuliani gets a lot wrong in that brief outburst. Needless to say, the Committee is not illegal. And it does have minority members. Two of them: Liz Cheney, the Committee’s co-chair, and Adam Kinzinger. It would have more Republicans, but GOP leader Kevin McCarthy refused to appoint any. And finally, the Committee is fully authorized to issue subpoenas.

This Newsmax interview didn’t really do Giuliani – or Trump – any good. In fact, it made the need for his testimony even more critical. The Committee will surely be interested in the evidence he claims to have stashed away all these years. If he does end up cooperating, it will drive Trump into a frenzy. But if he refuses, he will find out for himself about congressional subpoenas and contempt of Congress.

Rudy Giuliani Blasts ‘Fascist’ Fox News for Not Booking Him to Spread More of Trump’s Lies

The right-wing mediasphere has been struggling of late to keep from blowing itself apart. And the disintegration has been most prominently observable with Fox News, where many of Donald Trump’s most devoted disciples have taken to lambasting his longtime Ministry of Propaganda.

Rudy Giuliani

Trump himself has been throwing tantrums over what he regards is insufficient adoration from Fox. But the latest bomb thrower is Trump’s personal (unlicensed) attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who appeared Monday on the fringe conservative network, Real America’s Voice. Giuliani was interviewed by David Brody, who is also the chief political analyst for the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN). During the segment (video below) Giuliani expressed his dismay at having been banned from Fox News. He whined that…

“I made a lot of money on that channel from Fox. But they would not have been on in New York if it wasn’t for me having the courage to put them on against tremendous criticism. So they forget their friends pretty damn fast, I must tell you.”

Apparently Giuliani believes that unethically granting favors while he was mayor of New York City earned him perpetual appearance rights on Fox. And Fox is demonstrating an appalling lack of gratitude by failing to recognize that Mafia-style mentality of doing business. But he was just getting started…

“The thing I resent most is they won’t tell me why. I’m not being told why I’m not being allowed on. I’d like to know what it is that I said that they regard as not being true. We take the same position with regard to Dominion. We’re in the same lawsuit. I know they seem very frightened of George Soros, because I’ve seen other people interrupted and basically taken off because of George Soros.”

Giuliani actually seems to have answered his own question. He certainly does know why he isn’t being allowed on. His wholehearted embrace of Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was rife with fraud (for which they have been unable to produce a shred of evidence) has resulted in billion dollar lawsuits against Giuliani and Fox News by voting systems companies Dominion and Smartmatic And asserting things like his claim that he and Fox have the same position is precisely why Fox doesn’t want to have anything to do with him.

Then Giuliani goes further to insinuate the anti-Semitic trope that Jews like George Soros have some omnipotent control over the media and are responsible for his banishment and that of unnamed others. He doesn’t offer any proof, of course. And what rational person would believe that the ultra-rightist media baron, Rupert Murdoch, would bend to Soros on guest bookings or any other editorial decisions? But Giuliani still wasn’t done…

“It leaves me completely in a quandary to know why they’re playing kind of the fascist game that I’m used to with CNN. I mean, I don’t even consider them a news sources any more. They’re basically organs of the Democrat Party.”

Setting aside the obligatory insults aimed at CNN and Democrats, Giuliani actually hit on something truthful: That Fox News is fascist! Which is a statement that isn’t likely to make Fox more interested in inviting him back. For which he will still blame Soros.

Giuliani’s record is one of relentless lies and legal idiocies. After all, he lost more than sixty court cases asserting election fraud. And who could forget his affair at Four Seasons Landscaping? It’s a record that has already resulted in his law license being suspended in New York and Washington, D.C. And in addition to the lawsuits by Dominion and Smartmatic, he is also being sued by two election workers in Georgia who he viciously defamed. With a record like that, the only Fox show he can expected to be booked on is “Cops.”

Rudy Giuliani and OAN Sued Over Election Fraud Lies. What About Trump and Fox News?

As we approach the new year, the soap opera featuring Donald Trump and his “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” continues unabated into its second insufferable season. And the cast of characters are thrust into evermore melodramatic scenarios as their nefarious acts are revealed to weary viewers yearning for the climax when they are all marched into prison.

Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump

The latest wrinkle in this script was played out Thursday with the news that Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, and his propaganda mouthpiece, One America News (OAN), are being sued by two of the victims of Trump’s election deceptions. According to Politico

“Two former Georgia election workers are suing Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani, One America News Network and several of the network’s top executives for pushing a series of debunked conspiracy theories about the workers’ role in the 2020 election that they said put them in physical danger and threatened their livelihoods.

“Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss, her daughter, worked as poll workers counting ballots at State Farm Arena in Fulton County, Ga., during the November 2020 election. […] ‘As a result of their vital service, Ms. Freeman and Ms. Moss have become the objects of vitriol, threats, and harassment,’ they said in Thursday’s complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Washington.”

Freeman and Moss were falsely accused by right-wing hacks of stuffing fake ballots into the election counting process. However, a fact-check at the time thoroughly debunked the sloppy and dishonest claims. Nevertheless, as Politico noted…

“Trump and his allies remained obsessed with the state, and with the lies they have spread about the election workers in Georgia. Trump mentioned Freeman by name in the now-infamous call he had with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in early January, where he tried to convince the election official to overturn his loss in the state.”

Trump’s Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, is still disgorging these lies. After Raffensperger posted an article that touted the accuracy of Georgia’s elections, Harrington sarcastically replied that it was “like Philly saying they’re the safest city in the country with the lowest murder rate.” But it was nothing like that at all. It wasn’t Raffensperger who assessed Georgia’s election efficiency. It was the ultra-conservative Heritage Foundation. Also, Harrington even got the info about Philadelphia wrong. It isn’t even in the top ten of cities with the highest murder rate.

All of this raises the question as to why Trump hasn’t been named in the lawsuit by Freeman and Moss. He has been relentlessly spewing accusations against the poll workers with no basis whatsoever. And his Ministry of Disinformation (aka Fox News) has been backing him up the whole time. In fact, Fox News has already been named as a defendant in billion dollar lawsuits filed by voting systems companies Dominion and Smartmatic.

Trump and Fox News have done real harm to individuals, companies, and the nation, with their flagrant and self-serving campaign of deliberate falsehoods. And they must be held accountable for that. The victims of their malicious mendacity have every right to be compensated for the damage done. And as these cases wind their way through the justice system, hopefully all of the evildoers responsible will be made to pay up – civilly and criminally. And first among them should be Trump and Fox News.

Trump’s Candidate for Arizona Governor Would Not Have Certified 2020 Election Results

The MAGA “movement” is continuing to excrete waste from certain reddish regions of the country. While it remains a minority in most of the nation, there are pockets of sewage that float to the surface here and there. And when they do, Donald Trump is there to flush it out to the rest of his cult followers.

Donald Trump, QAnon, Dictator

This week Trump endorsed Kari Lake as his anointed candidate for governor of Arizona. That’s the state that just completed a fake audit (fraudit) performed by the rabidly partisan “Cyber Ninjas” that ultimately still found that Joe Biden is the legitimate president and was was fairly elected.

Lake is the perfect Trump surrogate. She is a TV celebrity with no political experience who embraces conspiracy theories, advocates for building a wall on the Southern border, peddles quack COVID cures, and most importantly, adores Trump almost almost as much as he does.

Lake’s job prior to jumping into the race was as a news reader on the Fox owned-and-operated television affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona. Trump viewed that as a plus in his endorsement tweet, posted by his spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, whose proxy Trump tweeting is a violation Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban. Trump gushed that…

“@KariLake is running for Governor in the Great State of Arizona. She is a fantastic person who spent many years working as a highly respected television anchor and journalist. Because of this, few can take on the Fake News Media like Kari. She is strong on Crime, will protect our Border, Second Amendment, Military, and Vets.”

Continuing to tick off the tedious talking points that have become Trump/GOP/Fox News gospel, he said that Lake “is against COVID lockdowns, Cancel Culture, and will end ‘woke’ curriculum in our schools.” But most cringeworthy was Trump’s assertion that Lake “will fight to restore Election Integrity (both past and future!).” How he expects Lake to restore any of his warped versions of reality from the past remains a mystery. The election is over and cannot be rerun, decertified, or otherwise altered. However, that didn’t stop Lake from going on the fringe, right-wing One America “News” Network (OAN) to participate in this softball exchange with OAN’s Senior Propaganda Pusher, Natalie Harp:

Harp: Have you thought through how you would have handled November differently? We all remember the scene where [current GOP governor] Doug Ducey is sitting there. The phone rings. It’s president Trump. He doesn’t answer. And he signs results that we now know – he certified it under penalty of perjury – weren’t accurate. How would you have handled that differently?
Lake: Well, considering how much already at the time information we had about serious irregularities and problems with the election, I would not have certified it right then. I mean, we actually had Rudy Giuliani in town at that very moment going through pieces of evidence, affidavits, that were presented through people of, that had witnessed things that were wrong or that didn’t add up.

Harp’s leading question injects the mandatory Trumpian bullpucky about the election results not being accurate, despite the fact that their own handpicked Ninjas validated it. And Lake’s reply could not have been more wingnuttery. She actually had the nerve to cite Rudy Giuliani as a source. For the record, Giuliani’s lies and disinformation have resulted in the suspension of his license to practice law and even got him banned from Fox News.

Lake also went on Steve Bannon’s podcast and baselessly accused her Democratic gubernatorial opponent, the current Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, of criminal acts and implied that she would prosecute Hobbs, saying that “I think Katie Hobbs will have a really tough time campaigning from behind bars.”

Lake is an unabashed, fully indoctrinated Trump-fluffer. Her cult-like devotion to Trump is emblematic of the broader threat that Trump and his worshipers represent to the nation. They are implementing a coordinated, nationwide crusade to undermine democracy in every state. And they must be stopped. To that end, feel free to support the campaign of Democrat Katie Hobbs for governor of Arizona. And be on the lookout for other Trumpian agents running for office. The future of American democracy depends on it.

Disgraced Trump Toady Rudy Giuliani has Been Banned from … Fox News?

The humiliation of anyone who has ever been foolish enough to associate with Donald Trump is continuing to manifest in ever more wondrous way. His most loyal lapdog in the Senate, Lindsey Graham, has been cast adrift for being caught telling the truth about Trump. The generals that he appointed to high profile posts he now calls “incompetent.” And his Cracker Quack legal team has been excoriated and sanctioned for repeated legal misconduct.

Rudy Giuliani

At the top of Trump’s law infirmity is former New York Mayor and Borat co-star, Rudy Giuliani. The hardships he has suffered for his devotion to Trump already include having had his license to practice law suspended in New York and Washington, D.C. But on Friday he may have received the unkindest cut of all. According to Politico

“RUDY GIULIANI has been banned from Fox News for almost three months. […] The ban extends not just to GIULIANI, but also to his son ANDREW, who has not been on Fox News since he launched his campaign for governor of New York in May despite many requests to go on the network. […] Bookers have told both Giulianis the ban comes from the top.”

That’s gotta sting. Back in the days that Giuliani had more influence than he does as fluffer for a failed former president, he played a central role in getting Time Warner Cable to carry the fledgling Fox News Channel. And this is how they repay him?

Fox News isn’t saying why Giuliani is now persona non grata. But it isn’t hard to surmise that they are worried about the frequency of his flagrant falsehoods. That’s especially true regarding the lies he has been telling about Dominion Voting Systems. Earlier this year Dominion filed a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit in which both Giuliani and Fox News are named defendants. They are both also being sued by the voting software company, Smartmatic.

It’s fair to assume that Fox News doesn’t want Giuliani on their network digging them into an even deeper legal hole. For the same reason, Fox also refused to carry some advertisements for the MyPillow voter fraud conspiracy crackpot, Mike Lindell. In retaliation, Lindell pulled all of his ads from Fox. And since MyPillow was Tucker Carlson’s biggest advertiser, his show now has only 5th tier ads from reverse mortgage lenders, dubious vitamin supplements, and personal injury lawyers.

With the banishment from Fox News, look for Giuliani to make even more appearances on the puny Fox wannabes, Newsmax and One America News. And he could always resort to scheduling more press conferences at the Four Seasons. Not the swanky hotel. The Philadelphia landscape store between the sex shop and the crematorium. So matter what they are telling you, is future is as bleak as ever.

Trump’s Lawsuit Against His Niece Mary and the NY Times is a Confession that She’s Telling the Truth

Among the psychological disorders that Donald Trump suffers from – in addition to malignant narcissism, antisocial personality disorder, and pathological lying – is one that he has displayed for decades: Hyperlitigious Behavior. Trump is notorious for suing his innumerable perceived enemies on blatantly false grounds. Most of the time he either drops the case or goes down in a humiliating loss.

Trump’s recent courtroom escapades include his ludicrous suit against Twitter, Facebook, and Google. And then there’s his threat to sue (and impeach) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. there is also his pretend action against CNN.

On Monday Trump announced his latest legal misadventure wherein he is suing his niece, Mary Trump, and the New York Times for, as stated in the filing, “tortiously breaching and/or interfering with his contractual rights and otherwise maliciously conspiring against him.” Because paranoid delusions are another of his known psychoses. According to Chris Jansing of NBC News (video below)

[Trump is] suing the New York Times and his niece, Mary Trump, over a story about his tax returns. The suit accuses them of engaging in quote ‘an insidious plot to obtain confidential and highly sensitive records which they exploited for their own benefit,’ and puts damages at no less than a $100,000,000. Mary Trump issued a statement, among other things, calling her uncle a quote ‘loser’ [actually “a f**king loser”]. The New York Times [whose story won a Pulitzer Prize] called the suit an attempt to silence news organizations.”

There are multiple obvious absurdities presented by this lawsuit. Beginning with the fact that it is alleging that Mary Trump “smuggled” documents from her own attorney to give to the Times. Of course, all of those documents would actually belong to her as part of her prior litigation. So how could they be characterized as stolen?

Uncle Trump’s suit also claims that Mary Trump had broken a non-disclosure agreement that had already been ruled too vague to enforce. Consequently, there is no merit whatsoever to Trump’s pitiful, poorly drafted, frivolous, nuisance suit. NBC’s Tom winter went on to report that…

“As far as this lawsuit, I think an interesting thing here is that it essentially proves the story. Because if the documents were, in fact, fake, there would be no reason here to sue. The president called this totally fake news when the Times started publishing documents about his tax payments and about his tax returns. So this essentially substantiates their reporting because, otherwise, why would you sue and why would you claim damages?”

Exactly! There can be no claim of damages for the release of truthful materials that were already disclosed in a prior proceeding. But Trump’s lawyers are, as usual, too incompetent to grasp the most basic legal concepts. That’s why some them (i.e. Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell) are facing severe disciplinary actions including suspension of their licenses to practice law.

In all likelihood, Trump’s lawsuit will never see a courtroom. If it isn’t thrown out for lacking merit, Trump himself will drop it. After all, he is only exposing himself to much greater legal liability by pursuing this nonsense.

What’s more, the discovery process would force him to turn over even more incriminating evidence. But in the meantime he is using this to deflect from other stories that he doesn’t want people to hear about. Such as the news that he knew that his lies about election fraud were unfounded even as he was disseminating them. That’s how con artists like Trump play the game.
