Trump election lawyer faces possible sanctions over thin fraud claims

 

A judge in Michigan pinned down lawyers in a marathon video court hearing Monday on whether they had done due diligence before filing election fraud claims in federal court in November. The grilling came in a hearing over whether the Trump-supporting lawyers should be penalized — with the possible consequence of losing their law licenses — following their lawsuit to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Much of the six-hour hearing hinged on Judge Linda Parker's line-by-line questioning about broad claims the lawyers had made alleging fraud and about sworn statements they had submitted to court from supposed witnesses speculating about ballot malfeasance, sometimes based on second- and third-hand chatter.
Ultimately the hearing became a painstaking recounting of the thinness of the claims supporting election fraud, and it came as former President Donald Trump has continued to repeat lies about the election's result and, in recent days, has rallied fellow Republicans around his claims.
Several state and national officials have verified the security of the 2020 presidential election and the integrity of its result: that Trump lost multiple swing states, including Michigan.
The judge on Monday repeatedly asked how much work the lawyers had done to verify the fraud claims. In response, several argued that they did not need to do that, if the witnesses believed that what they were saying was true. Fact-finding could be done during the course of the lawsuit, the attorneys who filed it argued.
At one point, Parker, sitting in the Eastern District of Michigan, asked the nine lawyers who took part in bringing the lawsuit if they had ever followed up to learn if any of their so-called witnessed actually saw a vote being changed.

  1. They keep doing it! They should be disbarred! If an attorney is lying they aren’t doing their jobs!

    1. @William H Music 2020 TROLL ACCOUNT
      Also uses William H, William H Music, William H Music 2020, William H Music 2021, Timmy Truth. reality, and of course The Tweatles. and who knows what others.

    2. @William H Music 2020 You are mad that you can’t be a real man like a liberal. Republicans have a testosterone deficiency. That’s why you are so afraid of everything.

    3. Going door to door to spread the China virus Seriously, that is a concern and how would they know their not.

    1. They are not fit to work in the law of court. More appropriate if the find employment in a three ring circus.

    1. DemonRats Cheated. The whole world knows. The circus clowns are still driving around with masks on. HAHA!

    2. it’s a fraud upon the court by an officer of the court. a claim at law is not free speech.

    3. sadly it’s not enough — it served the agenda, wielding media to lure short attention-span audiences with a quick pretext narrative without follow-through. Protections that only extend accountability inside the legal system don’t stop theatre when it can sacrifice a nearing retirement lawyer willing to take a fall just to publicize narrative that never met a standard burden of proof.

    4. @druu jenkins 50 gee’s for a man’s soul ain’t a lot but I suppose depends on the calibre of the man,if he’s the type to be taken in by obvious conmen n parrot racism then that’s about right

  2. Every state where Trump’s attorneys acted disingenuously needs to sanction them. We can’t claim to be a nation of laws and not have this happen.

    1. trump has gotten away with all sorts of crimes his whole ife with nothing more than a slap on the wrist. If the law had cracked down on him long ago, none of this ever would have happened

  3. Disbarment should be almost automatic, as a starter. Serious criminal charges should probably be seriously considered.

  4. Why is it all of Donald’s former lawyers are felons or currently suspended from practicing law?

    Good people don’t do business with or associate with so many criminals

    1. @imam omar fake news
      All CNN is fake news according to you folks so your commentary is by extension fake

    2. “All the best people!” Apparently according to Trump all the best people are in prison, facing sanctions, being sued for billions by Dominion. Liar, deluded or just plain dumb? (IMHO all of the above,,)

    3. “All the best people” according to Trump all the best people are either in prison, facing sanctions or being sued for billions. Trump: lying, delusional, or just plain dumb? Course none of those are mutually exclusive. So, all of the above.

    1. Normal Person: What actual damage happened on Jan 6th?
      Data: The fire extinguisher lie got extinguished and the only person who perished that day was a female veteran by police brutality
      You: I pretend to care about police brutality and women!!! Unless they disagree with me politically of course….

    2. @Jack Marsh THIS!!! Believing easily disproven online conspiracy theories does not make one a free thinker. It just means you’re gullible.

  5. Accountability! All those GOP who signed and joined onto the Texas lawsuit should also be looked into! They should lose their seats in Congress!

    1. @NBK Are you saying that these videos are fake? If you are, then any of your arguments prove to be misaligned and untruthful. Denying it didn’t happen, doesn’t mean it didn’t. If it didn’t happen, why is Trump praising the women that got shot? Did she die in his dreams? Your inability to come to grips with reality shows that it’s not us that have to cope but you!

    2. @Hankakah just because people don’t agree with you doesn’t mean they are untruthful. Now I know that is a hard concept for a degenerate lefty like yourself but it’s just how life is.

    3. Everyone wants to call names and not understand the problem. If you as a citizen had done any of this you would already be in jail. So stop making excuses, and read the facts not what you want them to be. No mater your political affiliation. If you can’t be objective to the facts on both sides…….THEN YOU ARE THE PROBLEM

  6. The problem is you’re not punishing these people immediately and You need to start now

    1. Sidney Powell is a full blown Whackadoodle crazy nut job. I have no doubt she will get what’s rightfully coming her way…and suspension of her Law Licence or disbarment will be the least of her problems and Guiliani‘s too.

    2. Hunter Biden is like Scarface….Well, at least through the first three quarters of the film..lol

    3. @Belly Dancer Em Corrupt and incompetent’: NYC Board of Elections slammed for unforced error , votes can be corrupted ,Trump won , biden need cognitive test

    1. @Dolores Reynolds ya the right dont make sense half the time either. Just like i still wonder why they impeached him for sex literally no one elected him for his celibacy. Oh well politics is a circus put on for show

  7. These people willingly lied to help foment an insurrection.what was it Trump nuggets used to chant..”lock her up”…rather apt I say.

    1. @druu jenkins No, I did not forget to tell you how 138 different police all got injured on 6th Jan. I did not bother because I am quite certain you do not give a damn.

    2. @druu jenkins haha your logic defying pseudo intellectualism is mildly amusing,pathetic n probably racist but somewhat amusing.have a good day n don’t let the truth get in the way of any twisted beliefs go gettem champ!!

    3. @Kobe Westbrook that is obviously true. And tose who did bring weapons and zip ties as well as a gallows.

    1. @Kyle Chetram Nope

      I don’t tell people what to do

      I ask them basic questions. Like why is this woman bad and a cop ending her is good, and I request more than political party affiliation.

      I also wonder why a bunch of people who probably aren’t Jesus 2.0 and probably couldn’t pass their geometry class are pretending to be Jesus/Newton mixed together…?

      If you donkeys didn’t invade every part of the entertainment industry, then I wouldn’t be here. Your team has given literally zero escapism to people who’d rather not be political. Your team has dramatically decreased the quality of the products I want to purchase.

      Thus I am here to detach you (the temporary avatar of corporate Democrats) from my life. I’m going to point and laugh at your false sense of morality which is pushed by corporations and you follow like a lemming. I’m also going to laugh at your lack of ability that is trying to be swept under the rug by calling everything racist.

      Go live your own life and stop trying to invade the escapism of other people under the false guise of compassion. Otherwise expect push back

    2. @druu jenkins Do you really believe all that bullshit or do you fully realize you’re a liar, and that’s why you love Trump and his lies?

    3. Professor Trump has taught them well, they lie so well so only the Dems can interpret this nonsense as lies. True lies II not starring Arnie is in the production stage. Getting sued by dominion does not scare her the least.

    1. @druu jenkins That’s not data, that’s a lie you get told in your little bubble. Public property damage alone was in excess of $1 million. Several dozen police and rioters were _seriously_ injured. Rioters were callously murdered by other rioters who prevented assistance. Senators and congress persons were within 10-15 minutes of being murdered before evacuation.

    2. @DynaCatlovesme Who was the only person ended that day? Other than from natural causes?

      Oh yeah… it was a female Trumper by a cop…. oh that gets in the way of your narrative huh little baby?

      hahahahahahahahaha

      BTW Darwin and Karma don’t care about your feelz

    3. @druu jenkins Rosanne Boyland, a 34-year-old Trump supporter from Georgia who died during the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, appears to have been killed in a crush of fellow rioters during their attempt to fight through a police line, according to videos. Kevin Greeson, 55, died of natural causes from cardiovascular disease. Benjamin Phillips, 50, died of natural causes from cardiovascular disease.

      None had to die at all, if medical were allowed to treat them. The rioters prevented that. None had to die at all but for the riot itself.

    1. @dimensionalyspeaking audits will prove the election was rigged. Why are the Dems fighting to stop the audits if this was the ” most secure election” ever?

    2. Investigating should be ” disbarred”?
      What is there to hide?
      Look what happened in NY.
      Watch “NYC Election Results VOIDED After 135K Ballots Were ‘Mistakenly’ Added as ‘Test’ | Facts Matter” on YouTube

    3. @Everhappy We all know the election was rigged. Biden would have never done these drastic changes and totalitarian edicts that he has NO right to be doping America down with massive immigration drugs and crime. Ruined American energy independence and now we feed his and his buddies pockets with our money.

  8. Lying in court to further a coup by a criminal traitor should have REALLY SERIOUS consequences.

    1. @RichW

      YOU MUST BE AN IDIOT

      Gas went up as soon as BIDEN stopped all oil production he could

    2. @Puddles Meister actually, i worked in the oil/gas business and am very well aware of what happens. Biden stopping a pipeline not even built yet has zero impact on current production or usage.

    3. @RichW

      YOU NEED TO READ MORE OFTEN

      Biden’s orders direct the secretary of the Interior Department to halt new oil and natural gas leases on public lands and waters, and begin a thorough review of existing permits for fossil fuel development.

  9. Isn’t a lawyer who makes false claims in a court of law stealing money from the public from using up the courts time and resources? Many in jail for much less theft.

      You: I pretend to care about police brutality and women!!! Unless they disagree with me politically of course….

    2. @druu jenkins then the antifa rioters in Portland were just tourists sightseeing then as well! Give me a break.

    1. I ‘member that time people like you were propping up Avenatti while claiming “the walls are closing in” on the big bad Orangeman

      How’d that one turn out again?

    2. @imam omar if you actually think cnn is socialist, then trump really did win with the poorly educated.
