More strife for Rudy and his team ...

 


The Washington Post -
Letter from 1,500 attorneys says Trump campaign lawyers don’t have ‘license to lie’

 

today

 


More than 1,500 lawyers* condemned efforts by the Trump campaign’s legal team to reverse the election results in an open letter that urged the American Bar Association (ABA) to investigate the conduct of the team, including its leader, Rudolph W. Giuliani.

 

President Trump’s barrage of litigation is a pretext for a campaign to undermine public confidence in the outcome of the 2020 election, which inevitably will subvert constitutional democracy,” the letter says. 

 

Sadly, the President’s primary agents and enablers in this effort are lawyers, obligated by their oath and ethical rules to uphold the rule of law.” ...

 

In their frivolous lawsuits geared toward stealing the election, Trump’s lawyers are bringing ill-repute to the entire legal community and abusing the legal system to assault democracy.

 

Every lawyer promulgating or promoting Trump’s suits should face the strongest possible punishment and be stripped of their license to practice law. If targeting American democracy does not merit such sanction, nothing does.” ...

 

 

 

 

*  The signers include a bipartisan coalition of former ABA presidents, state bar presidents, retired federal judges, retired state Supreme Court justices and attorneys in private practice.

 

The open letter questions the conduct by Giuliani, as well as current and former Trump legal team members Joseph diGenova, Jenna Ellis, Victoria Toensing and Sidney Powell.

Good on those legal eagles but, once again, the performers get it in the neck while the ringmaster goes scot free.

So...Trump has not got a hope in hell of changing anything now? He can file all the lawsuits under the sun but the outcome of the election will not be changing? Is that right?

As the Russian proverb goes: "What doesn't kill you make you stronger," Trump may provide impetus for the US to get their democratic election sh_t together.

At the very least, state election commissions will streamline their vote counting. Perhaps, dare I dream, a single standard for all US states around voting may one day occur?

New York Times: The Nation Reached ‘Safe Harbor.’ Here’s What That Means.

President Trump’s efforts to overturn the presidential election are nearing the end of the line.

...Nearly every state has certified its results, and Mr. Biden has officially secured more than the 270 Electoral College votes needed to become president.

...Mr. Trump’s personal attacks on the few top Republicans who debunk his fraud claims, such as in Georgia and Arizona, as well as his efforts to enlist allies in the party in his brazen effort to reverse the will of voters, such as in Pennsylvania, are likely to make the issue crucial to elections next year and in the 2022 midterms.

Republican primaries could become contests of who stood behind Mr. Trump in his baseless claims that undermined faith in democracy....

...State Representative Joanna E. McClinton, the minority leader of the Pennsylvania House Democrats, called Republican assertions of widespread fraud, which have echoed Mr. Trump’s descent into conspiracy theories and disinformation, “outrageous.”

“We are seeing extremists who claim they love the Constitution,” she said, “but who want to throw the Constitution away just because the president lost his bid for re-election.”

The Washington Post - Republican congressman says Trump is ‘anxiously awaiting’ list of lawmakers who back his efforts to overturn election

 

today

 


A Republican congressman who has filed an amicus brief in the Texas lawsuit seeking to overturn the results of the presidential election said Wednesday that Trump is “anxiously awaiting” the list of lawmakers who support the effort.

 

Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) said in a letter to fellow House Republicans that Trump called him Wednesday morning “to express his great appreciation for our effort to file an amicus brief in the Texas case on behalf of concerned Members of Congress.”

 

He specifically asked me to contact all Republican Members of the House and Senate today and request that all join on to our brief,” Johnson said in the letter. “He said he will be anxiously awaiting the final list to review.

 

In the letter, Johnson said he and others are “not seeking to independently litigate the particular allegations of fraud,” but rather are urging the Supreme Court to conduct a “careful, timely review” of the allegations.

 

The letter comes as Trump has continued to spread misinformation and make false claims about the election. 

 

Trump said Wednesday that his campaign will be joining the lawsuit, tweeting, “We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!” ...

 



 

Trump is still in total denial - which makes him even more dangerous.   😟

Another Don con?

 

The New York Times - Trump Faithful Asked to Donate $3 Million to Buy His Boyhood Home

 

08 Dec 2020

 


When Donald J. Trump’s childhood home in Queens was on the market four years ago, Mr. Trump, then a candidate for president, publicly mused about buying it himself.

 

Now, he might not have to: The home’s latest owner is launching a crowdfunding campaign with the goal of giving the five-bedroom Tudor in Jamaica Estates to the president as a gift - once the $3 million price tag is met.

 

The unusual real estate maneuver seeks to capitalize on the devotion of some of Mr. Trump’s supporters, in the hopes that the same commitment that has driven them to attend his large rallies in the middle of a pandemic will also induce them to open their wallets. ...

 


The seller has agreed to donate half of anything raised over the $3 million asking price to charity. 

 

And if the goal is not met, information on the GoFundMe page says all money raised will be donated to charity. 

 

But the seller has not revealed which nonprofit might benefit, or how long the fund-raiser would stay active.

As doors keep closing on Trump, he keeps reaching for increasingly desperate ploys. Is there any possibility at all this could ultimately conclude on 19 January with a state of emergency and declaration of the theocratic state of Gilead? That is not something I would have seriously considered, but he just won't quit and he has a lot of fanatical followers. When all other options are ended, is he capable of saying what the hell and bringing out the military? Can this be completely ruled out? I don't trust his judgement or his sanity and I wouldn't put anything past him.

The Washington Post - Trump’s effort to steal the election comes down to some utterly ridiculous statistical claims

 

today

 

Trump's efforts to undermine the will of the electorate and seize a second consecutive term in office hinges upon a lawsuit filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a lawsuit that essentially argues that Texas is harmed by the election results in four states that flipped from red to blue last month. ...

 


The probability of former Vice President Biden winning the popular vote in the four Defendant States - Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin - independently given President Trump’s early lead in those States as of 3 a.m. on November 4, 2020, is less than one in a quadrillion, or 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000” it reads at one point. 

 

For former Vice President Biden to win these four States collectively, the odds of that event happening decrease to less than one in a quadrillion to the fourth power.”

 

The same less than one in a quadrillion statistical improbability of Mr. Biden winning the popular vote in the four Defendant States - Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin - independently exists when Mr. Biden’s performance in each of those Defendant States is compared to former Secretary of State Hilary [sic] Clinton’s performance in the 2016 general election and President Trump’s performance in the 2016 and 2020 general elections,” it reads. 

 

Again, the statistical improbability of Mr. Biden winning the popular vote in these four States collectively is 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000.” ...

 

 

 

 

I rest my case, your honor ...   😊

That's exactly what I'm thinking he'd do. But hopefully he won't know he can do that.

Yeah, and Covid is harmless and, just like a miracle, will go away. Trump has shown how far you can push the US system towards a dictatorship. The impetus he's provided is showing what you can do, all it requires is someone less incompetent than him to see it through. The big issue for the US will be getting the military on side, fomenting unrest and deploying NY troops to Texas and Texas troops to NY to deal with it is an obvious one, but you need to first cause dissent in the military in order to politicise it and that's not going to be so easy.

According to this article, there actually is a method to this madness, and it is chilling. Make enough failed absurd comical claims and lawsuits, and you build momentum that ultimately improves the chances of yourself or someone like you coming back and winning in the end. That is also statistics.

Yes, because the US military has a long tradition of being apolitical. See my previous post, the biggest problem for Trump Mk.II will be to figure out how to politicise the military.

Check out this editorial from the WP. What seems to be happening with the increasingly absurd legal challenges, is a move towards a final showdown of some kind, where people are whipped up and then urged to take (violent) action, after which Trump can declare an emergency, martial law, and all the other dictator crap that goes with these kinds of things, and bring things to a point of anarchy where he has a legal basis for ordering the military onto the streets, at which point the military has to either obey the 'legal' order or defy the oath they have all sworn. I don't think that bastard is going to relent. He is going for an all-out takeover.
