    The Chump Lost Cause Lawsuit Thread

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/u-judge-d...202434895.html



    By Pete Schroeder

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Thursday dismissed a libel lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump's re-election campaign against CNN over a 2019 opinion piece which it said suggested the campaign would be open to Russian interference, according to a court document.

    The campaign sued CNN, which is owned by AT&T Inc, in March over the June 13, 2019, piece by Larry Noble, a CNN contributor and former general counsel of the Federal Election Commission.

    U.S. District Judge Michael Brown said the campaign had failed to prove the piece was maliciously published.

    The Trump campaign's lawsuit objected to a statement in the opinion piece in which Noble referred to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and said: "The Trump campaign assessed the potential risks and benefits of again seeking Russia's help in 2020 and has decided to leave that option on the table."

    The campaign argued that it has "repeatedly and openly disclaimed any intention to seek Russian involvement in the 2020 election," and has never made statements suggesting otherwise. It added the piece reflected a "systematic pattern of bias."

    On Thursday, the judge gave the campaign the opportunity to file an amended complaint. Spokespeople for the Trump campaign and CNN did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

    He just won't give up....

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-fil...172222236.html

    President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit seeking to throw out hundreds of thousands of ballots in Wisconsin, in an effort to overturn the results in a state he lost to President-elect Joe Biden.

    Results in the state were certified on Monday, following a partial recount requested and paid for by the Trump campaign that increased Biden’s margin of victory in the state by a handful of votes.

    The Trump campaign’s suit, which was filed in the state Supreme Court on Tuesday morning, targets roughly 221,000 ballots cast in two heavily Democratic counties, Milwaukee and Dane, which encompass the majority of Wisconsin’s Black residents. The president previously targeted those two counties for the recount his campaign requested.

    The ballots the Trump campaign is seeking to have tossed fall into four buckets, according to a copy of the lawsuit circulated by the Trump campaign: 170,000 in-person absentee ballots, 5,500 ballots that had some witness address missing, 28,400 ballots from voters who claimed they were “indefinitely confined” and 17,300 ballots returned during “Democracy in the Park” events hosted by the city of Madison.

    Biden’s margin of victory in the state was roughly 20,600 votes.

    Trump’s suit alleges that Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat, acted too early in certifying the election results on Monday afternoon, following the state elections board canvassing the statewide results and finding Biden winning.

    Notably, Trump’s suit does not allege or provide evidence of widespread electoral fraud, as the president has repeatedly claimed on Twitter and elsewhere. Instead, the campaign is alleging that those roughly 221,000 ballots were cast in violation of state law.

    “The people of Wisconsin deserve election processes with uniform enforcement of the law, plain and simple,” Jim Troupis, counsel to the Trump campaign, said in a statement. The case does make vague references to a “higher probability” of fraud with mail ballots.

    The Trump campaign alleges that the counties did not follow state law with the largest bucket of ballots the Trump campaign is seeking to have tossed, the in-person absentee ballots, by not having voters submitting a separate written application.

    But the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes that the practice of allowing voters to sign a form on the ballot envelope — which counts as both a ballot application and as a certificate that they are the one filling out the ballot — has been in use “for more than a decade.”

    The Trump campaign is also trying to toss out ballots from all voters who newly claimed after March 25, the day the first stay at home order went into effect in Wisconsin, that they were “indefinitely confined,” which allows voters to submit an absentee ballot without a copy of a photo ID. The Trump campaign alleges some of those voters don’t meet the criteria.

    When Trump narrowly carried the state in 2016, his campaign did not challenge practices like in-person absentee voting and clerks filling out missing witness information.

    Troupis, a former Dane County judge, is actually seeking to have his own ballot tossed. He and his wife both voted via in-person absentee, the Journal Sentinel previously reported.

    And another one bites the dust.....

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/wisconsin...183759294.html

    MADISON, Wisconsin – The Wisconsin Supreme Court threw out President Donald Trump's election lawsuit Thursday, two days after he asked the justices to revoke the certification of a contest he lost by nearly 21,000 votes.

    In the 4-3 decision, the justices said they would not accept the case he filed directly with them. The president can try to pursue the matter in a lower court, but Thursday's ruling is a setback that shows he is near the end of the road with his legal challenges in Wisconsin.

    Conservative Justice Brian Hagedorn joined the court's three liberals to reject the case, saying any challenge should start in circuit court.

    "We do well as a judicial body to abide by time-tested judicial norms, even — and maybe especially — in high-profile cases," he wrote. "Following the law governing challenges to election results is no threat to the rule of law."

    The court ruled hours after Trump filed a separate lawsuit in federal court seeking to have the Republican-controlled Legislature, instead of voters, decide how to cast Wisconsin's electoral votes. That case remains pending, as does another one filed in federal court by Trump allies.

    Recognizing the tight time frame, the justices acted quickly. Tuesday is the "safe harbor" date recognized in federal law by which any challenges to election results are to be resolved. If challenges are not resolved by then, there is a higher risk the state's electoral votes won't be counted.

    The Electoral College is to meet Dec. 14 and Congress will count its votes on Jan. 6. According to states' returns, Biden has 306 electoral votes and Trump has 232. Biden's sizable victory means he would become president even if Wisconsin's electoral votes were shifted from him to Trump.

    Trump has not made headway with legal challenges in other states either. He has been furiously fundraising to fund his election challenges in Wisconsin and elsewhere, raising more than $170 million since Election Day, according to the New York Times. But much of that money will go to pay off campaign debt or sustain his future political ambitions rather than his legal fight.

    Thursday's ruling came a day after Trump released a 46-minute video packed with falsehoods about how the Nov. 3 election was conducted. Nonpartisan observers have said there were no major flaws with the election and Trump's attorney general, William Barr, this week said there is no evidence of widespread fraud.

    In his Wisconsin lawsuit, Trump was not alleging fraud.

    Instead, he argued long-standing election practices were illegal and asked to throw out hundreds of thousands of votes in Dane and Milwaukee counties, the two most Democratic parts of the state. He did not ask to toss votes in Republican parts of Wisconsin, even though ballots there were cast the same way.

    Biden won the state by a margin of 0.6 percentage points, according to initial results. Trump paid $3 million to recount the ballots in Milwaukee and Dane counties, which turned up dozens more votes for Biden.

    The recount concluded Sunday. On Monday, the Democratic head of the state Elections Commission determined the results of the state's 72 counties were accurate and Democratic Gov. Tony Evers certified Biden as the winner.

    Trump sued on Tuesday, asking the high court to revoke the certification, revive the recount and disqualify more than 220,000 ballots in Dane and Milwaukee counties.

    Among the votes he wanted to throw out were all those cast early in-person in those two counties — including one by Jim Troupis, his lead attorney in Wisconsin.

    He also sought to toss ballots cast by those who said they were indefinitely confined because of age or disability. Those voters don't have to show ID to get absentee ballots and Trump argued some claiming that status didn't meet the criteria.

    His lawsuit took aim at the heart of an election system created by Republicans over eight years when they controlled all of state government. Republicans created the commission that oversees state elections, established the state's voting procedures and have long encouraged their supporters to vote in-person early without questioning the legitimacy of the practice.

    Even a 1/3 Cheeto Appointed Reactionary Right Wing SCOTUS Won't Take His Case!!

    Supreme Court rejects lawsuit from Texas and Trump to overturn the election

    From CNN's Ariane de Vogue

    The Supreme Court acted with unusual speed to reject a bid from Texas’ attorney general— supported by President Trump — to block the ballots of millions of voters in battleground states that went in favor of President-elect Joe Biden.

    The court’s move to dismiss the challenge is the strongest indication yet, that Trump has no chance of overturning election results in court that even the justices who he placed on the Supreme Court have no interest in allowing his desperate legal bids to continue.

    For the record, this was a 7-2 decision, with only Sammy "the fish" Alito and Clarence "the clown" Thomas opposing. So yes, all three of Cheeto's own horribly underqualified appointees rejected his orange ass. As did Opie Roberts, who ironically was part of the 2000 Florida theft, which happened 20 years ago, tomorrow.

    It's like evangelist donations when the guy has a private jet and a string of whores.

    You can never underestimate the gullibility of some folk but many civil liberties at the edges like eating and drinking too much are about the freedom for us to make dumb decisions.

    To me this ls at the very least close to fraud but whatever...

    Grifted seems a little harsh... every one of those fools freely chose to give their money to this and every other campaign regardless of party.

    I really don't get the motivation for giving any money to anyone or any political cause... there's really no upside to the investment. It's appalling the amount of money that's just plain wasted on all of this bullshit that amounts to nothing. So many more positive things could be done with the Billion$$$ thrown at this crap...
