You need to understand these affidavits are largely just random citizens giving their opinion. Random couple who has nothing to do with any part of an election, and no evidence to support their claim, says they feel like the election was stolen.

That's it. That's an affidavit. Do not confuse an affidavit with evidence.
Yeah but it feels truthy, so ya know.....

Raise your hand if....

You watched the Hyper-Chicken's wife talk about Hugo Chavez plotting to steal the 2020 election, using Dominion voting machines.

Raise your hand if...

You saw it and thought, gee golly, that woman is smart sounding and she will prove Trump won.

Look around you. Are you and a group of your friends the only ones holding your hands up?

Congratulations, you're one more moron ruining 'Murica.

But... if you truly believe Trump won, how can anyone decide you are wrong?

Dont these folks know that when you speak from the heart, that is all that matters?
Personally, I love when the **** your feelings crowd starts talking about speaking from the heart.
It gives me the douche-chills, every time.

Looks like Trump’s legal team just got smacked over pretty hard in Michigan for their frivolous fraudulent election lawsuit.


Looks like they will have to pay all the legal bills of the opposition, and are ordered to take continuing education classes (18 hrs worth!) on basic lawyering, because the judge determined them to be totally incompetent. Too bad he didnt order some ethics courses too. The opinion is also being forwarded to the bar in Michigan for consideration to sanction the attorneys.

Trump only hires the best people, you know!
Now, let's be fair. Trump didn't hire Sydney. She latched onto him. Bad judgement on her part. She should be disbarred for her incompetence and dishonesty.

Just for kicks, imagine a legal system in which the lawyer representing a client split the sentence/award 50%/50% if the trial went to a jury verdict.

Interesting no?

Regards, stay safe 'n well.

Your link says:
"
have received federal sanctions from a judge in Michigan and could face a host of other disciplinary measures.
"
Seems like this might be some more wishful thinking by the people who don't want the truth ...

They must have just over looked the 7,500 Affidavits that were sent to Michigan detailing the Voter Fraud (by Michigan Citizens) ...
Did anyone watch the MI Senate hearings ?
Funny how you actually read the link, but it didn’t take.

But Rudy was hired by him

Crooked lawyers abusing the legal system with baseless claims to promote political propaganda should all be fined court costs and then disbarred.

Actually, the Trumpy lawyers' problem is that the judge didn't overlook anything. She took the whole thing very seriously. Very, very seriously.

She went through every claim in the original suit, and then she went through every claim they mounted to defend themselves against charges of incompetence & bad lawyering. And she crushed every single one — with barely restrained fury, but also with meticulous precision.

A few examples:
1) The Michigan lawsuit sought to have the election results set aside & Trump 'declared' the winner by the judge. Why? Because absentee ballots were counted that lacked postmarks!!! An ominous claim!!! Except Michigan voters can deliver their ballots in person. No postmark required.
2) Another ominous claim: Michigan voters who requested absentee ballots then voted in person!!! Except Michigan law specifically allows voters who request an absentee ballot to come to the polls in person on election day and vote.

This is so vital: These 9 attorneys attempted to gas-light and lie right to the judge.

In their disciplinary hearing — after the suit was dismissed — Parker asked the lawyers about the specific instances of claims in the suit that were not violations of law. The lawyers either acknowledged they were wrong, claimed not to know the relevant law, or shrugged.

Read the judge's decision for yourself. The bottom of p. 55 through p. 58 is especially entertaining.

Conspiracy theories are self perpetuating. There is practically nothing that can't be dismissed by either widening the scope of the conspiracy or the idiocy of those supposedly being fooled by the conspiracy.

Either they were incompetent enough to think they had a case, or they were competent and knew the case was a farce but filed in bad faith. They should be disbarred for either incompetence of dishonesty. Either way, they can't be trusted by any court or any client.

Exactly. Which makes it incumbent upon their states to revoke their law licenses.

The judge made that expressly clear, even specifying which jurisdictions needed to take action and ensured they received official notice:

I am sure that is where she got it from. However, one major difference is that she wasn't on an 'entertainment' program, but she was filing lawsuits in court.

Not that I think that it should be allowed even in the entertainment business. I strongly disapprove of that defense, period.

Most of the people in trump loser world think they are one in the same. They put as much emphasis on tabloid gossip as they do on real new.

Man, the Kraken gets owned every single time. I suspect this is the first time it gets its law license revoked though.

The one defense she had for all this was what I considered really really stupid

That's just a smokescreen to throw off the Deep State hounds. No way would Powell sincerely imply that anyone believing the Big Lie was an idiot.
