The Lawsuits Begin; Congress Failed to Impeach Trump, Now Lawmaker Sues Trump and Guiliani for Conspiracy to Incite

 
When at first you don’t succeed…

The Senate chose not to convict former President Trump in his latest impeachment trial, but that’s not stopping some lawmakers from trying to hold Trump accountable for the Capitol riot on January 6.

Representative Bennie Thompson, a Democrat who chairs the Homeland Security Committee, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday accusing former President Donald Trump and lawyer Rudolph Giuliani of conspiring to incite a violent riot.

The lawyers for Thompson said:

“The insurrection was the result of a carefully orchestrated plan by Trump, Giuliani and extremist groups like the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys, all of whom shared a common goal of employing intimidation, harassment and threats to stop the certification of the Electoral College.”

Proving incitement in a court of law requires a much higher burden of proof than it does during an impeachment trial in the Senate, so it seems unlikely that Thompson will prevail.

    You better be using your own money to pay for law suits against Trump. If not start looking for recall petitions for you. If that doesn’t work look for voters to get rid of you. If that doesn’t work, well there are other means. So get to work on your real job, serving your constituents. Pull your collective heads out of that dark smelly place you keep it.

      Enough is enough. If this goes to trial, I’m sure they’ll put old Pelosi on the stand, and the Capital police. The FBI informed them that there could be a riot and they just ignored it. She just can’t let Trump go, as she wouldn’t have anyone to badger for the next 4 years. She’s a really old deranged woman.

    I hope Trump sues the hell out of every clown who tries to sue him for something he just proved he was innocent of. These Democrats need to pay for their lies and attacks on a US President and the insurrection they have caused.

    He needs to hit the idiot with a counter suit for a couple of million- frivolous lawsuit. President Trump will win. When are they going to wake up and realize they are dealing with an extremely smart man! They are dumber than a box of rocks.

    That is a huge lie! It has been reported who the real culprit was and it was CNN. NBC PELOSI, MCCONNELL! If they know what’s best for them they had better back off! They are the ones who planned this whole thing! They started rioting before President Trump gave his speech! And this too will backfire on them!

    And that is what Democrats due instead of attending to what they were elected to do. Then again by doing this they won’t screw up our life as bad.

    This is utterly ridiculous and a total waste of taxpayer money. The democrats should have to pay the cost of the two impeachment trials back to the government out of their own pockets along with the Republican who also voted for the impeachment trials. This money for frivolous suits should not be paid by “We the People”. If our people that represent us does things like this instead of taking care of congressional business then they should not be paid their salaries while carrying out these frivolous actions that has no validity. Also for continuing to go forward in these cases they be impeached from their positions immediate. Pelosi, Schumer, Nader all should be impeached along wit Republican McConnell.

    All those US Congress person and their families should be sued for their stupid and commie actions. I think all those who file additional charges -should have to personally and re-pay Mr. Trump for the expense along with a stiff find given them by the US Government. If they loose all funds will be repaid to the US Government for their expenses. Also, all members who think they can use the Federal American funds to make these charges… If they lose –they must reimburse the federal Government and the party they made to charges against, along with the extra time the charges were press. Therefore, all expense will be paid by the person making the charges along with the political party they are in.. No expense to the American People.

    They will keep it up as long as they can, of course. Anything to try to deflect from the Beijing-owned disaster they fraudulently placed in office.

      Now you know they are gonna get an Obummer appointed judge and then they wont allow any of the real evidence to be used in Discovery. They will use the same lie they used in the other lawsuits that none of it is relevant.

    The hatred is so deeply set in these obstructionist demoncrats. They can’t stand his success because the only way they can win is by hook or by crook. And, the results of the election speak loudly of that. I think they like being losers all the timer. If they, the demoncrats, keep this up they are going to need more than barbwire fences to protect them. They are hated by 75,000,000 patriots. They made their bed and now the have to live with it. They should worry about who is behind them. So try another time to take our PRESIDENT TRUMP DOWN while mr. biden sits in the oval office until nutzy paloozi uses the 25th on him. We will give the demoncrats the same respect and cooperation they gave PRESIDENT TRUMP and his administration. We will do the same to cumallya harris–I read where they have her calling foreign dignitaries – well, she will be getting a taste of foreign cooks. They two puppets are the laughing stock of politicians.

    I take it that Bennie Thompson is black.Now Dems have to play the race card, It is high time Pelosi goes. What has she done for the past 4 yrs but wage war against Trump, even tearing up the state of the union address. for which she should have beencensored. She is a despicable human beingwho couldn’t evenbe happy for Russ Limbaugh at the SOU address. SHAME ON HER!

    Heres what I saw on video taken Jan. 6: First of all, the capitol police stood to the side as protesters entered the capitol- one of which escorted a protester up the stairs with hand on his shoulder like they were buddies! Also, I saw no Trump flags inside the capitol, only antifa flags, so when do they look toward antifa for this? Oh, they might want to ask pelosi since it was pre-planned and she knew about it but did nothing!! What a bunch of you-know-what!!

    Before all this Tokenism (Barack Marketing) we took, many or most, race very lightly; just another American as proven by neighbors and high figures in culture who don’t play a race card but act as entertainers, authors etc.

    Democrats, it could have been either Party and since they won has been both parties, play race mostly to move elite, white programs by trickling down to our lowest guts, believing rumors instantly, and me, too impulse to protect and improve our own public standing. Black people are far, far more mocked and silenced than long-before, and selectively highlighted (like childhood Highlights Magazine in intellectual height) dishonestly, when they back or shield politics.
