Donald Trump election loss: Judge's sanctions on ex-POTUS' allies sets precedent, columnist says
To this day, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump has not accepted his defeat to Joe Biden in the 2020 elections. With the former president’s allies still trying to contest the election results, a judge in Colorado may have set a precedent against them, according to a columnist.
Mark Barabak of the Los Angeles Times praised the recent decision of a magistrate judge in Colorado on attorneys Gary D. Fielder and Ernest John Walker, lawyers who filed a lawsuit against certain states to overturn Biden’s wins in those states. Both Fielder and Walker were convinced that US President Joe Biden had stolen the election to deny Trump a second term, basing their claims on conspiracy theories from right-wing figures and media.
Judge N. Reid Neureiter dismissed the claims and ordered Fielder and Walker to pay around $190,000 to the defendants in their lawsuit. According to Barabak, this provides the precedent for punishing the former president and his allies for peddling the baseless claim of voter or election fraud.
“Here’s hoping the action by the US District Court judge sets a precedent that spreads widely through the land, as former President Trump and his enablers continue to push the ‘Big Lie’ of rampant voter fraud and seek to undermine the legitimacy of the current chief executive,” Barabak wrote.
“It’s one thing to market that mendacity to fleece donors, salve the former president’s velveteen ego, or build an audience on Fox News, OAN, or other Trumpaganda media outlets. Things are different in a court of law and must be,” Barabak continued.
In other related news, the CIA published the latest chapter in its history of presidential briefings. According to the agency, the former president did not pay much attention to national security, compared to his vice president, Mike Pence, who took part in the briefing six days a week. The report also revealed the extent of what the CIA’s agents experienced, noting the former president’s rants and other issues.
During the time of the 2020 elections, Trump’s daily intelligence briefing would only take place twice a week and lasted for 45 minutes. In most of those 45 minutes, Trump was reportedly ranting.
