Federal Judge’s Threat May Chill Future Election Lawsuits

Many big law firms dropped their representation of President Donald Trump and Trump advocates in the face of blatant intimidation after the election.

Now, it seems federal judges are getting into the act.

U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg of the District of Columbia this week threatened sanctions against a prominent attorney representing Republican voters and legislators in a lawsuit filed on Dec. 22 that raises a U.S. Constitutional challenge to the election results in the swing states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Arizona.

Judge Boasberg , who was appointed to the court in 2011 by Democratic President Barack Obama, on Monday rejected the plaintiffs’ request for a preliminary injunction to prevent the U.S. Congress from counting the electoral votes in the defendant states.

The plaintiffs’ claim the U.S. Constitution gives state legislatures the non-delegable power to conduct post-election certification of votes and electors. They argue state and local officials usurped this authority by blocking legislators requests for special legislative sessions to review voter fraud allegations in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Arizona.

Citing one of America’s founders, Alexander Hamilton, the plaintiffs argued the “wholesale delegation of legislative authority” to state officials “operates contrary to the Constitution by inviting ‘cabal, intrigue and corruption’ rather than operating to prevent the same.”

Warning Shot

The 116-page lawsuit alleges Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s gave $400 million to local and state executives through a private charity “that dictated how the recipient local government officials would manage the election.” Urban election officials used the money to promote the Democratic vote while deterring Republican oversight, the lawsuit alleges.

The lawsuit complains that GOP efforts to address alleged election improprieties have been met with intimidation. They note, for example, that Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat, announced she is criminally investigating GOP legislators who voiced election concerns.

Judge Boasberg was anything but sympathetic…

There Is More Than Enough Evidence To Warrant Investigating Election Fraud

The nation is in turmoil.

There is overwhelming evidence of widespread voter fraud in Democrat controlled swing states that may have swung the election from the rightful winner, GOP Donald Trump, to Democrat Joe Biden.

Some obvious steps would go a long way to settle doubts and suspicions and, just as importantly, would remove the shadow looming over Biden and the next four years:

  • The U.S. Department of Justice could conduct an immediate forensic audit of Dominion Voting Systems voting machines used in the election.
  • The DOJ and the FBI could conduct an intensive investigation of reports of ballot stuffing on a massive scale.

What is more important to the nation than insuring the right to vote was not compromised by malevolent actors in the United States and abroad?

Polls show that a third of Democrats and most Republicans suspect the election was stolen. What impact will their suspicions have going forward if they are ignored? It will grievously harm civic life in America for many years, and will utterly destroy respect for American laws and institutions.

The stakes couldn’t be higher.

But nothing is being done.
