More Pro-Trump Lawyers face consequences for pushing Election Lies

[ Editor’s Note: In addition to this video today we have the Washington Post review of the grifter attorney circus in Boulder Colorado court. The case was dismissed in April, so it has taken all this time for the sanctions case against the attorneys to come up.

From WaPo: Just before Christmas, two Colorado lawyers filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of 160 million American voters, alleging a vast conspiracy to steal the 2020 presidential election by the voting equipment manufacturer Dominion Voting Systems, Facebook, its founder Mark Zuckerberg, his wife Priscilla Chan and elected officials in four states — and asking for $160 billion in damages.

They also set up a Crowdfunding account for the grift, bringing in $100K, where they claim they spent $95K on the case. Why am I suspicious that that included what they paid themselves.

WaPo: “Did that ever occur to you? That, possibly, [you’re] just repeating stuff the president is lying about?” Federal Magistrate Judge N. Reid Neureiter asked the two lawyers, Gary D. Fielder and Ernest John Walker, during a hearing to consider sanctioning them.

The two lawyers argued they had a good-faith belief that the election was stolen and did not trust government officials and others who affirmed that it was secure and that there was not widespread fraud.

The Judge Neureiter noted that: “Top officials such as Attorney General William P. Barr and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency had publicly stated that there was no evidence of widespread fraud or election-machine hacking that affected the outcome of the election. Those findings, Neureiter suggested, should have been a “red light for you, at least a flashing yellow light” that more investigation was needed before filing the claim.”

WaPo: Attorney Fielder said the two had a “good faith” belief that the election was stolen, citing theories put forward by various other lawyers and Trump allies — including, he said, MyPillow chief executive Mike Lindell. “These are serious allegations, made by serious people,” he explained.

But the judge questioned whether, as officers of the court, the lawyers could file a lawsuit based on mere belief of problems. He noted the they had presented “not one iota” of evidence to support claims, for instance, that Dominion’s machines were hacked or that Facebook had manipulated the election via grants donated by Zuckerberg and routed to local officials through a nonprofit group.

Instead, he noted, they provided only sworn statements from people who believed the election was rigged — a belief fueled by Trump’s repeated false claims.

These two attornies even stated they inteneded to refile their initial case, seeming to me that they are begging to be sanctioned and then open a crowdfunding account to defend themselves.

This may be compliments of what seems to be an attraction to picking the pockets of the willing Trumpers, thinking these two will be two more dogs in the fight to restore Trump as president, rhetorically speaking that is. I would never call an attorney a dog… Jim W. Dean ]

  1. How do you know your vote was even counted? Did you get a receipt showing who you voted for? Federal elections should be federal. Not state by state. You get a receipt with a number on it that you can use to check whether your vote was correctly counted at a federal vote counting center web site. The votes are counted in real time and you can see the results as they are counted. Everyone who is a citizen eighteen or older votes. No electoral college. You could have three separate vote counting centers all counting the same votes to assure accuracy. If your receipt number doesn’t show your correct vote, you know the election is fraudulent. As far as proving whether someones a citizen or not, that’s another story. If you don’t have a birth certificate, how do you prove you are a citizen?

  2. lawyers – 160 million American votes were stealed.
    judge – I don’t believe you.
    lawyers – Would you believe votes of First Bengal Lancers?
    judge – No.
    lawyers – How about vote of Gunga Din on a donkey?
    🙂

  3. Both sides; tops and bottoms, ins and outs, all know the score and the script.
    How can there be opposition, when there is none.
    Real opposition is never allowed on the field.
    But fake foes, and mad hatters are given full play.
