Trump Lawyers Face Accountability: ‘They Used The Federal Courts To Broadcast Lies.’

David Fink, attorney for Detroit in the Michigan elections sanctions case against Donald Trump lawyers, talks with Rachel Maddow about why it was important for the judge to go beyond throwing Trump election challenges out of court, and the consequences those lawyers may now face from a judge outraged at their abuse of the court system.

  1. I have heard a lot of people talk about accountability, but have not seen very much. Talk to me when someone *IS* held to account.

    1. @AbbersJ If you believe that then you need therapy or meds. Maybe even both. Better keep your head on a swivel. When the people around you find out what a screwball you really are they might call the men in the white coats. And I’m serious.

    2. @AbbersJ You voted for Biden. You’re still defending him too. You’ve got the blood of American soldiers on your hands. They were sacrificed because of Biden’s stupidity and incompetence.

    3. @AbbersJ Hey genius. Next your gonna say that Trump brewed up the coronavirus in the basement of the White House. Laughable, pitiable and sad at the same time. Get help. You need it.

    4. @Henry Fourquart Hey, CHEAP GAS, it’s really great you posting here, it shows everybody what your cult is like. That’s been my aim all along, unless people see what your kind is like on a regular basis, they may forget. Thanks for all your help. 🙂

    1. @JWalkers Conner Joe just gave 80 billion in weaponry to a terrorist organization and you are complaining about a peaceful protest in January I am glad you have your priority straight go get a clue traitor

    2. @JWalkers Conner your fn president killed 11 marines and 1 navy medic with no ounce of balls to strike back. More blood on your voting hands.

    1. Say it isn’t so! The only honest law makers we have left now are politicians. These are truly dark times we live in.

    1. @mike brigs Yeah, no. Justice and accountability is not what Nazis stand for. Nazis and White Supremacists sure like Trump, though, and sure were at the January 6th Insurrection with their 6MNE shirts and whatnot. Real Trump quotes: “Good people on both side…”
      “Proud boys: Stand back and stand by.”
      “These aren’t people. These are animals.”
      “They should be executed. [Central Park Five, a group of Black and Latino men wrongly accused of assaulting a white female jogger ]”
      “China Virus” “Kung Flu”
      “Total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the U.S.”
      I could go on and on…

    2. @Lea Brown Merriam Webster’s definition of insurrection: “The act of revolting against civil authority”
      Antifa and BLM are literally textbook definition insurrectionists.

    3. @Lia Brown all those claims are so incredibly taken out of context let me refute you:
      1.The Proud Boyz were only there because Antifa and BLM were destroying police precincts and federal buildings.
      2. Do you know what the Sinaloa cartels and Zetas cartels do to people? They skin them alive and behead them with chainsaws then dissolve them in oil drums of acid THAT’S who Trump was calling animals.
      3. He never said that about Central park that’s what we call “fake news”
      4. Chinese own virologists admit they manufactured it in underground labs in Wu han THAT’S why he called it Chinese virus, it came from China as Fauci’s own leaked emails show us.
      5. Most of them in fact are trrists or they support it like 80% of them in Britain who think suicide bombings are ok.

  2. Consequences incoming? I sure hope these folks have made Trump pay their fees upfront. Otherwise they’ll be out of a job *and* broke.

    1. @Matthew McDermit Okay. After we get the fraudulent president out and we stop the human trafficking first.

    2. @XXII Elhazaroth Pagangrinder VXXXVIII Never. But many lawyers have been disbarred for lying to the court. Lawyers who lie don’t end well.

  3. What do you get when you cross the Godfather with a lawyer? An offer you can’t understand.

  4. Lawyers don’t have the right to say anything they want for their own means. That is NOT freedom of speach.

    1. @jay tompkins ownership is nothing. Do you actually read it and comprehend it is more important.

      Because freedom of speech is not freedom to lie to a judge and file suits in bad faith. That applies regardless of political affiliation.

    2. @jay tompkins you assume an awful lot about me. I don’t recall ever claiming to be a Democrat or the like. (A hint, snowflake, I’m not.)

    3. @duprattcarol Still trying to find those comments that you folks are saying I make to defend anything that Fox news says or does. Still not seeing them.

    4. @UncaringSpark You prefer to talk about yourself instead of Fox News which is a way of not replying to anything that I said.

  5. These kind of lawyers are the worst ambulance chasers in the world.
    You reap what you sow so don’t complain now.

    1. They are more than ambulance chasers. They are the kind that would set up an accident for the purpose of representing the victims.

    2. @Shannon Joe Biden is dead. Dr fascist is at GITMO. The sooner you break away from operation mockingbird the better you will be.

    3. @Wendy Hardin It’s ironic because the people you support literally do that. They’re masters at manipulation.

    1. @Don’t tickle me Cuomo if I had dollar for every Trump conspiracy theory… I would have enough to leave this country for you idiots to destroy…

    2. @Ace Shabazz Yeah but you wouldn’t. Under no circumstance would you EVER LEAVE the United States.
      THE UNITED STATES, a country so great even its haters want to stay.

    1. @Billy Goat
      Oh sorry, can you not misuse the term “fact” it’s icky when that happens. I think the more appropriate term would be “opinion”
      And you don’t get to dismiss logical fallacies, if you don’t know what they are. That’s not how any of this works.

    2. @Michael McGruder great story, maybe your next response would actually further the conversation??? I’m just dumb enough to remember school and history lessons and never in my life has the establishment, corporations, and media all working together in unison being a good thing but you idiots are so gullible you believe the guy that just came to town is the worst offender ever while we let he career offenders dictate whom to focus on?? Yeah certainly no conflict of interest there, there would be no interest in removing the guy in their way…….

    3. @Bradley Dibble lol you can dismiss quite a few fallacies like whataboutism?? How it became a fallacy to highlight differences is a joke…

    4. @Bradley Dibble and that’s 100% fact, look at the media and establishment’s behaviors and narrative the past 5 years as proof

    5. @Billy Goat
      Nah, logical fallacies have been around longer than trumpers. They are based in reality, trumpers not so much, Kellyanne Conway was absolutely wrong when she claimed”alternative facts” were a thing. That’s not how any of this works.
      Logical fallacies weaken your argument, you would lose a proper debate with this posture. So will you strengthen or weaken your argument? The rules will always remain constant, you can’t change them.

  6. Imagine being a supposedly ‘top notch’ lawyer and being told by the judge to continue getting legal education. Hahaha

    1. I can’t express how embarrassing that must be for people at their level. Sydney has to be fuming right now, love it!

    2. How was Trump and right wing media referring to them initially, like a crack legal strike team? This is evidence alone that they have no shame insulting their bases impaired intelligence.

  7. What a surprise! Team Trump are trying to game the system. How out of character! Disbar them all. There’s plenty of work in landscaping.

    1. @Brian Melendy Plus, if they are PO’d off at Dump, for not paying them, they could add a little “spice” to his special order.

    2. @Brian Melendy Flipping burgers is the worst job *I’ve* ever had. Never worked in landscaping. Saving that one for my retirement at the Four Seasons.

    1. At least they didn’t murder 10 US soldiers like Joe Biden did today. That blood is on your hands Ronald..

    2. Lawyers must abide by a code of legal ethics, taught in a special class during the 2nd or 3rd year. There’s also continuing legal education (CLE) after a lawyer enters the profession. Every law school graduate knows the ethics requirement–even before sitting for a bar exam. Prior to the bar exam, a separate ethics exam is given, which a student must pass by a score of not less than 75%, in most states. These bozos were idiots to let Trump use them. But don’t worry—if you’re worrying: they can teach at most law schools because one doesn’t need a bar card to teach law, and the pay is pretty darn good, at the better law schools.

  8. They spread lies and defrauded their own voters of hundreds of millions that went straight into Dump’s pockets. They got exactly what they wanted and now they ALL need to pay for it both financially and professionally.

    1. @Ugly German Truths lol

      Meanwhile here you are, like the sheep you are, gobbling up what lame stream media has to feed you, because you weren’t taught to think for yourself.

      Whats going on in Afghanistan?

    1. Ever want to investigate this ? In 2013, Joe Biden and Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Ten days later, Hunter Biden’s firm scored a $1,500,000,000.00 deal with a subsidiary of the Communist Chinese government’s Bank of China.
