Donald Trump Is a "Sore Winner" Too
Trump, Lawyer Hit With $937,989 Sanctions in Clinton Case

The Banned Played On


We all know that Trump is a sore loser.  Donald Trump is also a sore winner.  Despite his 2016 win over Hillary Clinton, he fired a lawsuit claiming that Hillary cheated in 2016.  In fact, Trump named 31 people and organizations that formed a huge conspiracy against him in his lawsuit.

When Trump LOST the 2020 election (he still won't concede) he filed tons of lawsuits in a lame attempt to overturn the election.  He even attempted a coup.  And he has been a big crybaby ever since.

Butt Trump won the 2016 election (in the Electoral College) so why is he filing a frivolous lawsuit about that election?  WTF?  Is he crying because Hillary won the popular vote?

Here's an article from last November about Trump's frivolous lawsuit:


Judge Fines Trump Lawyers in Clinton Conspiracy Suit Tossed in September



The sanctions ruling comes as a range of lawyers working for former President Donald J. Trump are under scrutiny.



Nov. 10, 2022




WASHINGTON — A federal judge in Florida imposed sanctions on Thursday against a group of lawyers for former President Donald J. Trump who handled a sprawling lawsuit that accused Hillary Clinton and a range of Mr. Trump’s perceived enemies of a vast conspiracy against him.



The judge, Donald M. Middlebrooks of the Southern District of Florida, had thrown out the case in September, and in a scathing 19-page ruling , he accused Mr. Trump’s lawyers of abusing the legal system by suing for political purposes in a case that he portrayed as full of misinformation. “Every claim was frivolous, most barred by settled, well-established existing law,” he said.

______________________

In the racketeering case, Judge Middlebrooks, who was appointed by President Bill Clinton, wrote, Mr. Trump put forward “political grievances masquerading as legal claims.” He added, “The courts are not intended for performative litigation for purposes of fund-raising and political statements.”

______________________

In filing the lawsuit in March, Mr. Trump named 31 people and organizations as defendants. The case amounted to yet another venue for Mr. Trump to air his grievances and conspiracy theories about the Russia investigation.

Mr. Dolan was the subject of pro-Trump conspiracy theories after John Durham, the Trump-era special counsel investigating the Russia investigation, mentioned him in an indictment of Igor Danchenko, a Russia analyst who gathered many of the claims in the so-called Steele dossier. (Mr. Danchenko was acquitted last month.)

_______________________



But Mr. Trump pressed on. After Judge Middlebrooks dismissed the lawsuit and Mr. Dolan asked for sanctions, the Trump team claimed that “nearly all” of the allegations the lawsuit had made against him came from the Danchenko indictment.

That, Judge Middlebrooks wrote, “is simply not so,” saying Mr. Trump had instead “cherry-picked portions which supported his narrative while ignoring those that undermined or contradicted it.”

Trump, Lawyer Hit With $937,989 Sanctions in Clinton Case

    • Florida judge says Trump suit was blatant abuse of the courts

    • Ex-president argued Clinton, Democrats conspired against him





By

January 19, 2023, 9:24 PM EST Updated on January 19, 2023, 10:51 PM EST



Former President Donald Trump and one of his top lawyers were ordered by a judge to pay a total of almost $1 million in legal fees and costs to Hillary Clinton, her 2016 campaign and more than a dozen political operatives who he alleged ran a vast conspiracy to damage his reputation.

The suit is part of a long pattern of abuse of the courts by Trump and his lawyers and “should never have been brought,” US District Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks said in a ruling Thursday in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Its inadequacy as a legal claim was evident from the start,” the judge said. “No reasonable lawyer would have filed it. Intended for a political purpose, none of the counts of the amended complaint stated a cognizable legal claim.”

Trump, his lead attorney, Alina Habba, and her law firm were held jointly liable for $937,989. The sanctions were issued on behalf of 18 defendants who submitted a joint motion accusing Trump of knowingly filing a suit with bogus and unbelievable claims to dishonestly advance a political narrative.

The ruling is the latest legal setback for Trump, who was not deterred by his failed lawsuits challenging the result of the 2020 presidential election. Earlier this month, his lawyers barely escaped sanctions over their failed arguments against New York Attorney General Letitia James’s civil fraud suit against him and his company, which goes to trial in October. And a suit Trump filed against James in Florida was dismissed last month by Middlebrooks, who said that case had “all the telltale signs of being both vexatious and frivolous.”

Habba didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

The ruling came hours after Habba appeared in New York state court to argue against dismissal of a $100 million lawsuit Trump filed against his niece Mary Trump and the New York Times over its award-winning 2018 story on the former president’s taxes. The judge overseeing that case Thursday repeatedly suggested the damages sought by Trump could be viewed as intimidation.

Middlebrooks, an appointee of former President Bill Clinton, said in his ruling in Trump’s Florida suit against Clinton that filing such lawsuits “undermines the rule of law, portrays judges as partisans, and diverts resources from those who have suffered actual legal harm.”

The judge rejected any notion that Trump’s lawyers were the only ones at fault.

Mr. Trump is a prolific and sophisticated litigant who is repeatedly using the courts to seek revenge on political adversaries,” the judge said. “He is the mastermind of strategic abuse of the judicial process, and h e cannot be seen as a litigant blindly following the advice of a lawyer.”

Trump’s suit repeated many of his grievances over the FBI’s 2016 investigation into whether his presidential campaign was colluding with Russia to influence the election that year, alleging the entire probe was the result of a Democratic-led conspiracy to undermine his presidency and tarnish his reputation. Along with Clinton, he named former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta, British intelligence ex-agent Christopher Steele and many others.

The judge blasted Trump’s lawyers for stacking the lawsuit with details from criminal complaints against former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann and Russian business analyst Igor Danchenko, who were charged by the US Justice Department special counsel investigating the FBI’s handling of the Trump-Russia probe. The allegations against both men were seized upon by Trump and his allies as evidence that Democrats and their Justice Department allies conspired to undermine Trump starting in 2015. While many faults in the FBI probe were uncovered, both cases ended in acquittal.

“A criminal indictment should be no more than the starting point for a lawyer’s good faith pre-filing investigation,” the judge wrote. “The danger of overreliance has been demonstrated here, in light of the acquittals of Mr. Sussmann and Mr. Danchenko.”

Middlebrooks dismissed Trump’s suit in September, calling it a “manifesto.” The judge in November ordered Habba and another lawyer to pay $50,000 to the court and $16,274 in legal fees and costs to one of the defendants, Democratic political operative Charles Dolan, who was involved in Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and filed his own motion for sanctions.

The case is Trump v. Clinton, 22-cv-14102, US District Court, Southern District of Florida.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2023-01-20/trump-lawyers-ordered-to-pay-almost-1-million-court-sanctions





Trump will likely continue to be litigious.  He fucking loves lawsuits that he usually loses.  He also often fails to pay his lawyers.  In the case cited his attorneys will have to pay the court almost a million dollars.  I wonder if he will have to rely on Public Defenders to handle his upcoming criminal cases?  Or maybe lawyers will demand payment in advance to represent him.

Remember when he sued a comedian for five million dollars over a fucking joke?

Here was the meme I posted when Trump dropped the lawsuit:

Afterwards, in a  speech to supporters , Trump touted how many different demographic groups he won in Nevada, declaring that "We won the evangelicals. We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated," before exclaiming "I love the poorly educated!"  [Emphasis mine.]

The "I love the poorly educated!" statement included his lawyers.

What the fuck is wrong with the lawyers that take him on? Why aren't they doing their best to protect him from his own undoing? Any ethical lawyer would take a look at the facts and tell him the truth ... there are no merits to his frivolous lawsuits. At least some lawyers have recently insisted on having multimillion dollar retainers upfront. He's notorious for not paying contractors and lawyers. 

When lawyers try to help Donald Trump with his problems, they often end up with problems of their own.

Sixteen different lawyers have been sanctioned over failed lawsuits brought on the former president's behalf. Their attempts include litigation seeking to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and pushing a conspiracy theory blaming the Russia investigation on a smattering of Democratic party operatives.

The risks of working as a lawyer for Trump, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen previously told Insider , comes from the mogul's refusal to take a loss.

"For Donald, the only option is victory at any cost," Cohen, who was disbarred following a criminal conviction based on actions he took on Trump's behalf, told Insider. "This even includes having counsel act in ways detrimental to their reputation and career."

Trump's lawyers keep getting slammed for filing conspiratorial lawsuits. Here are the 16 sanctioned so far

Alina Habba
Michael T. Madaio
Peter Ticktin
Jamie Alan Sasson
Rudy Giuliani
Sidney Powell
Lin Wood
Emily Newman
Gregory Rohl

Good luck.  Even with the Fed raising rates, bank rates probably won't keep up with inflation. 

I am just not a fan of stocks.

Use a discount broker and pay no fees.  Do your own research.  Start at Dividend.com (for example).

Look at stocks that pay high dividends.  I own MRCC stock (Monroe Capital Corp.).  It is paying a 12.2% dividend.  There are lots of stocks that pay high dividends.

Be careful.  Stocks can be iffy.  For instance Ladder Capital Corp. (LADR) pays an 8.4% dividend.  However, it has loaned millions to Trump which he may default on.  Dig deep on any company before you invest

I've worked decades each at two international law firms. Neither did criminal or family law (other than estate/probate). Everyone deserves right to counsel (including disgusting unethical and unconscionable people) however, and there are some wonderfully ethical people who do fantastic work while not crossing any boundaries on behalf of a client. That includes telling a potential client they haven't a leg to stand on and letting them know they may be responsible for defendants' legal fees.

How could Ghouliani be so confused about 9/11/2001?

Did he forget it happened on DuhBya's watch?

Remember how GW immediately responded?

He later LIED and said he saw the first building getting hit on a TV in the school's office.  Butt the video of the first building getting hit was not aired until 9/12.

Someone piss in your cornflakes this morning, Mr. Grumpypants?

Are you talking about the Thomas that has a wife that is a conspiracy theorist and election denier? That Thomas? 

Several of the country’s most respected legal scholars say that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas must immediately recuse himself from any cases relating to the 2020 election and its aftermath, now that it has been revealed that his wife, Virginia (Ginni) Thomas, colluded extensively with a top White House adviser about overturning Joe Biden’s victory over then President Donald Trump. On March 24th, the Washington Post and CBS News revealed that they had obtained copies of twenty-nine text messages between Ginni Thomas and Mark Meadows, the Trump White House chief of staff, in which she militated relentlessly for invalidating the results of the Presidential election, which she described as an “obvious fraud.” It was necessary, she told Meadows, to “release the Kraken and save us from the left taking America down.” Ginni Thomas’s texts to Meadows also refer to conversations that she’d had with “Jared”—possibly Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who also served as a senior adviser to the Administration. (“Just forwarded to yr gmail an email I sent Jared this am.”) Stephen Gillers, a law professor at N.Y.U. and a prominent judicial ethicist, described the revelations as “a game changer.” In the past, he explained, he had supported the notion that a Justice and his spouse could pursue their interests in autonomous spheres. “For that reason, I was prepared to, and did tolerate a great deal of Ginni’s political activism,” he said. But “Ginni has now crossed a line.” In an e-mail reacting to the texts, Gillers concluded, “Clarence Thomas cannot sit on any matter involving the election, the invasion of the Capitol, or the work of the January 6 Committee.”

BREAKING NOISE:

One of the impacts of the decision to  hit Trump & his lawyer with $937,989 in sanctions In the Clinton case has just emerged:

Trump Drops BS Lawsuit Against New York Attorney General Letitia James

RETREAT!

In November 2022, Trump filed a lawsuit against N.Y. Attorney General Letitia James alleging “intimidation” for investigating him.

Jose Pagliery

Political Investigations Reporter

Just one day after former President Donald Trump was fined nearly $1 million for filing stupid lawsuits, he is in full retreat mode.

On Friday, Trump withdrew his mind-boggling lawsuit in Florida against New York Attorney General Letitia James, a ploy that was widely regarded by legal scholars as a bald-faced delay tactic.

The filing, made in Palm Beach County court , was curt—it merely stated that Trump “hereby voluntarily dismisses his claims in this action.” There was no explanation given.

But the cryptic move comes as Trump’s legal woes are mounting: judges have increasingly taken tougher stances against him for misusing the nation's court system to slow down legitimate law enforcement efforts against him.

Earlier this month, New York State Supreme Court Justice Arthur F. Engoron reprimanded Trump for wasting the court’s time with what he deemed “frivolous” legal maneuvers—and the judge threatened his lawyer, Alina Habba, with sanctions.

Then, on Thursday night, U.S. District Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks took the remarkable step of slapping Habba and Trump with a $937,989 fine for their “frivolous” lawsuit against his 2016 presidential rival, Hillary Clinton.
