[ Editor’s Note: The Banana Republicans lose another poorly strategized case as part of their continuing attempt to use the Donald Trump tactic of litigating everything forever that they want, especially if someone else is paying the legal tab.
This case was another circus, on the scale of the election fraud cases where they won one out of 64, but of course their attitude is the 64 don’t matter.
But I have bad news for them. This string of ‘Steal’ lawsuits, most of them filed with no solid evidence behind them, could allow a jury to see a pattern of conspiratorial conduct of trying to Steal the lawsuit by making endless claims to keep the base fired up and donating.
‘Malicious intent’ is critical in getting criminal convictions, and the Banana Repubs should step back and view what they are doing as if the Democrats were doing it to them. How would they go after prosecuting an attempt to throw over an election?
I pose to you they would be doing EXACTLY what the Repubs are doing, minus the Trump theatrics, where he is in a class by himself that no one wants to join… Jim W. Dean ]
