    Lawsuits against Donald Trump brought by Capitol Police officers and Democratic lawmakers over the U.S. Capitol riot, can move forward, a federal appeals court ruled on Friday. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied Trump’s request to dismiss the civil lawsuits that accuse him of inciting the violent mob on Jan. 6, 2021. But the court said it’s ruling was not the final word on whether presidential immunity shields the Republican from liability in the case and said the judges express “no view on the ultimate merits of the claims” against the former president. Trump had...

    John Eastman has been harassed unceasingly since assisting Trump in 2020 constitutional litigation.Three lawsuits attempting to bankrupt a constitutional scholar for giving the prior Republican president legal advice will cost him $3 to $3.5 million, John Eastman said Friday. Eastman was a target of Democrats’ illegal Jan. 6 Committee and has been harassed by the FBI and courts since assisting Donald Trump in 2020 constitutional litigation.“This is what I call the authoritarian moment in our history,” Eastman told reporter Julie Kelly and podcast cohost Liz Sheld. “The whole premise here is: ‘The government has spoken and you continue to say...

    VIDEONow that it is apparent that weaponizing the DOJ and using lawfare against Trump by charging him in multiple court cases leading into the 2024 election is NOT stopping Trump, look for the Democrats to desperately attempt to introduce Ranked Choice Voting in the Battleground States to stop Trump since that bizarre type of voting system negates the effect of third party candidates who would draw votes away from Biden. No wonder that the Trump hating Rolling Stoned is hyping Ranked Choice Voting in a dopey "instructional" video.

    Donald Trump's election interference case could be delayed by months after his lawyers applied for a vast array of classified government documents. On Wednesday, they applied for 57 groups of documents, many of them highly classified, on everything from Justice Department correspondence with President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden to Trump's White House scheduling diary. Trump's team also applied for access to documents pertaining to Russian and Iranian meddling in the 2020 election; Chinese hacking of election computers; full details of all undercover agents deployed at the January 6 riots and a vast array of correspondence relating to...

    A onetime Miami Proud Boy and former Miami-Dade Republican Executive Committee member has been convicted of two felonies for storming the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. As a mob of Trump supporters descended upon the Capitol on January 6, 2021, Gabriel Garcia hopped on Facebook live to record himself inside the building while he taunted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to "come out and play." Sporting a red Make America Great Again cap, he allegedly encouraged other members of the crowd to flood into the building and called police "Fucking traitors." The former U.S. Army captain and ex-Proud Boy leader...

  • Judge denies Jack Smith's deadline request, leaving classified document trial date in doubt

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 16, 2023 | Ashley Oliver
    A federal judge in Florida denied a key deadline request on Thursday from special counsel Jack Smith in the case against Donald Trump, alleging the former president unlawfully retained classified documents. United States District Judge Aileen Cannon's decision, in which she rejected Smith's request that Trump notify him by mid-December of any classified evidence he plans to use for his defense, is yet another indicator that she is likely to postpone the trial's start date. The trial is currently set to begin on May 20, 2024, but Cannon said last week she would evaluate numerous outstanding deadlines at a scheduling...

    Former President Trump, his sons, and his companies are sitting on trial in a case filed by New York Attorney General Letitia James with state court Judge Engoron presiding. Pundits, anchors, and political commentators have expressed the common opinion that Donald Trump will be found “guilty” in that case — either because Trump did wrong or because the judge is biased against the Trump surname. Others have announced Trump will soon be in prison as a result of the claims pending against him in this case. There are things we can all know for certain. No one will be found...

    NEW YORK (WKBW) — New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed a lawsuit against PepsiCo Inc. James announced the lawsuit Wednesday at Canalside alongside state and local leaders. The lawsuit alleges that hundreds of PepsiCo products have been found along the Buffalo River and caused public harm in Buffalo.

    Former President Donald Trump and Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron offered differing opinions on why this so-called fraud trial is taking place. Trump asserted that "all my loans we paid back in full. No lender lost any money. Why is this trial being held?" Engoron rebutted Trump, saying "because you're just a bad guy." Trump's attempt to read a brief disclaimer document advising lenders to make their own assessment of the value of the property being used as collateral to secure the loans being sought was rebuffed by Engoron. "In my many years of dealing with lenders it has...

    A federal appeals court has set a mid-January deadline for the Louisiana state legislature to draw up a new congressional map, which comes in a long-running legal dispute that included a lower court ruling that found the current map likely unfairly diluted the power of black voters. A three-judge panel in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals issued its order on Nov. 10, requiring the state legislature to pass a new map by Jan. 15, 2024. The appeals court's order notes that, if the state legislature fails to adopt a new map by the deadline, then the lower court should...

    WASHINGTON — Rep. Elise Stefanik, the House GOP conference chair, has filed a judicial ethics complaint against the judge presiding over the New York civil fraud case against Donald Trump, accusing Judge Arthur Engoron of “weaponized law fare” against the former president, and calling on the judge to recuse himself. Engoron had exhibited “clear judicial bias” against Trump, including by telling Trump’s attorney that the former president is “just a bad guy” whom New York Attorney General Letitia James “should go after,” Stefanik, R-N.Y., said in a letter to the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct. She said the...

    For Donald J. Trump, a new set of New York Times/Siena College polls captures a stunning, seemingly contradictory picture. His 91 felony charges in four different jurisdictions have not significantly hurt him among voters in battleground states. Yet he remains weaker than at least one of his Republican rivals, and if he’s convicted and sentenced in any of his cases, some voters appear ready to turn on him — to the point where he could lose the 2024 election. Snip---------------- If the former president is convicted and sentenced — as many of his allies expect him to be in the...

    If leftists have their way, the 2024 presidential election will be decided in courtrooms by liberal judges — not by Americans at ballot boxes across the country. With President Biden’s poll numbers at all-time lows and public polling showing former President Trump consistently leading in 2024, Democrats are scrambling not to win the support of voters but to simply disqualify their opponent through Democrat operatives, attorneys, and judges.This strategy is especially rich coming from the “democracy is on the ballot” crowd. Apparently, “democracy is on the ballot” means only Joe Biden is on the ballot.

    Efforts to keep former President Trump off the ballot under the 14th Amendment reached the Minnesota Supreme Court on Thursday, with several justices during oral arguments appearing wary that they should be the ones to determine Trump’s eligibility. The case, brought by a left-leaning nonprofit, is one of multiple across the country seeking to prevent Trump from returning to the presidency under the clause, which provides that anyone who took an oath to support the Constitution but then “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” cannot hold office. Thursday’s arguments concerned several legal issues the nonprofit must prevail on so their case...
