BREAKING: Judge Rules Against Trump

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1792: US postal service created, postage 6-12 cents depending on distance

U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta ruled that former President Donald Trump must face the civil lawsuits seeking to hold him liable for the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Mehta rejected Trump’s efforts to dismiss the cases on the basis of presidential immunity.

“To deny a President immunity from civil damages is no small step,” Mehta wrote in a 112-page opinion.

“The court well understands the gravity of its decision. But the alleged facts of this case are without precedent, and the court believes that its decision is consistent with the purposes behind such immunity.”

The judge ruled that Trump could be held liable because his efforts to undermine the 2020 election results could not be considered official acts.

“After all, the President’s actions here do not relate to his duties of faithfully executing the laws, conducting foreign affairs, commanding the armed forces, or managing the Executive Branch,” Mehta wrote.

“They entirely concern his efforts to remain in office for a second term. These are unofficial acts, so the separation-of-powers concerns that justify the President’s broad immunity are not present here.”

“President Trump’s January 6 Rally Speech was akin to telling an excited mob that corn-dealers starve the poor in front of the corn-dealer’s home,” Mehta wrote.

“He invited his supporters to Washington, D.C., after telling them for months that corrupt and spineless politicians were to blame for stealing an election from them; retold that narrative when thousands of them assembled on the Ellipse; and directed them to march on the Capitol building—the metaphorical corn-dealer’s house—where those very politicians were at work to certify an election that he had lost.”

The ruling came in a set of cases brought by U.S. Capitol Police officers and Democratic House members Rep. Bennie Thompson (MS), the chairman of the House Jan. 6 Select Committee, and Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA).

The civil suits all brought claims against Trump under the 1871 Ku Klux Klan Act.

    Trumped up charges. Everyone knows it was a stitch up. Judicial system has been hijacked by pedophile democrats. Disgusting corruption on a global scale.

  2. JAS says:

    A continuation of the President Trump witch hunt by the swamp to include corrupt judges, politicians, and the scum media, to include the resident in the wh. The swamp is focused on nothing but to ruin America in any way possible. The corrupt swamp is so afraid of President Trump and the evidence he has and they will stop at nothing to discredit him. The swamp must understand, the storm is already upon them and there is nothing they can do to stop it. America and the Constitution of the United States will prevail.
    GOD BLESS AMERICA AND PRESIDENT TRUMP.

      Amen. When are the American people going to wake up and see that Donald Trump did nothing but good for our country, and see that the Demo-rats are doing nothing but to bring it to it’s knees in the eyes of the whole world. They hate
      Trump so bad that they will try anything to destroy him. Look at his record in short
      period of time compared to Obama’s record in eight years, now his lacky boy
      Biden who has single handedly in just about 14 months has successfully brought this great country to it’s knees. Wake up America. Who has in reality done a better job, Trump or the Obama, Biden stooges. Be made very aware of what you
      are voting for or we will all be waiting in a soup line for our next meal.

    2. Schmo says:

      Well said and agreed to en masse. Although we know Trump lost the election we know it was by fraud. Massive fraud!
      Judges and the media are hiding behind each other but we also know the identity of the “naked emperor”. Any opinion
      related to discrediting Trump and or the facts related to the stolen 2020 presidential election are simply a desperate attempt
      at justifying a cover up to and because of a fraudulent 2020election.

    3. Mich Thwaites says:

      You made me laugh. I almost thought you were serious.

    4. MY OPINION says:

      SPOT ON JAS: THESE BOUGHT MORONS *WILL* PAY FOR IT AND THEY KNOW THAT THEY ARE THE LOSERS………..

  3. MTK says:

    That’s right, the Constitution will prevail, but not in the way that YOU expect.. It will clean the filth from our Democracy ( the Cult of Trump) and return bipartisan cooperation and normalcy, once Trump is behind bat’s…. Your Fascist cult will tumble (House of Cards) like the Fascist of Germany and Italy did in WW2

  4. Sophia Kampes says:

    He had every right to question a corrupt election and since We the People knew it whether he said it or not, the citizens who were there had already gone over to the Capitol before he finished his speech which proved he didn’t incite those who went into the capitol and I might add they were invited into the capitol by those capitol police and Nancy Pelosi allowed that to happen because Donald Trump offered the National Guard which both Nancy Pelosi and Mayor Bowser refused, so go blow it out if your ear, you corrupt judge. We the People will make sure judges like you will be forced out of the DC Swamp peacefully and patriotically along with the other Swamp People. You were never elected by We the People so you will be fired.

    These are desperate Rats scrambling to avoid their pending extermination!!! Everything they are doing will snap back on them!!! It’s all a sting operation… think about what Trump did with the Ukraine call transcript!!! First he locked it up…then the rats made up crap thinking he was afraid of them… then he said “ok, here it is!!!” and they (especially Adam Shitt) have never recovered from that!!!

  6. M E White says:

    She is a rich commie now. How he could be at the riot and speaking at the same time is a mystery to me. I cannot wait for elections to get rid of the commies in our house and senate. We need to clean up the justice system. Every one of them are crooks – up to the highest bidder. Name makes me wonder if she is a citizen or one of the people Obama brought in from Afghanistan as a refugee or was it terrorists he brought?

  7. M E White says:

    How many of Polosis hirelings have they arrested? I saw people in all black -antifa- going into the building on Jan. 6. Long coats–what was under them? We will never know–rata faced polosi hired them.
