Judge Says Trump Likely Broke Law During 2020 Election

White House [Public Domain]

This story is breaking and will be updated as more information becomes available.

A federal judge says that former President Trump likely broke the law by trying to obstruct Congress from confirming Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election.

Judge David Carter wrote in a court ruling that had Trump’s plan with John Eastman had succeeded it would have “permanently ended the peaceful transition of power, undermining American democracy and the Constitution.”

CNBC reports:

“If the country does not commit to investigating and pursuing accountability for those responsible, the Court fears January 6 will repeat itself,” Carter wrote in the ruling in U.S. District Court for the Central District in California.

The judge’s stinging comments came in a decision that ordered Eastman to disclose 101 documents to the select House committee that is investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and events leading up to it.

Carter wrote that 10 other documents should not be turned over to the committee, finding that they are privileged.

Eastman wrote a memo that had detailed how Vice President Mike Pence could reject the certification of Biden’s election win by a joint session on Congress on Jan. 6, 2021.

Eastman, among other Trump allies, spoke at a rally taking place at the same time as the certification process and urged Pence to reject the results. Soon after a mob of protestors marched to the Capitol where some broke into the building.

Where was this judge when BLM activist and terrorists were ruling the street. This judge needs to be replaced as his political leanings are definitely showing.

This Judge should be impeached and removed, since he is not following the law but instead the leftist hack line.

Then please explain, my Judge, how one might remedy a crooked election. Please explain what the Founders talked about in this regard; please explain why this very remedy is prescribed into the NATION’S LAW.
This judge should be removed from the bench – he refuses to uphold the nation’s Foundational Laws.

Pence should’ve rejected these bogus results because that demented troll did not win this election,Trump did!! The only law that was broken was him certifying a lie!!! We the people will have the real president reinstated this year and his name is DONALD J TRUMP and those imposters will be exposed for the liars and deceivers they are!! And that vile old hag Pelosi and McConnell will be exposed for their crimes on Jan 6th!!!

Pence was convinced and pushed around by his own “Chief of Staff” to not reject the vote and send them back to the states for review. Pence bent under pressure.

Let’s review – the Dems push Russia, Russia, Russia lies for years spending hundreds of thousands of our money, use Covid to change voting laws illegally to use dropboxes, ballot harvesting, no ID all to cheat, call Biden Laptop Russian disinformation, allow Zuckerberg to buy election, push Great Reset, etc., and We The People are suppose to be OK with all this? Dems knew and are now using Jan 6! Don’t believe anything Dems say – they have done nothing to earn it. Dems hate USA and just want power!

Yeah, right, now we get a federal judge, obviously claiming to be non-partisan, looking once again to blame Trump for what the FBI started. So, there was Donald Trump, wearing a Roman toga, and a Napoleon hat, waving a Nazi flag, hollering, “Yes, yes! Run into the Capitol building, break a bunch of windows, and scare Michael Byrd so bad he shoots that little unarmed lady over there in the corner!.”

Looks like this judge needs to read the Constitution. Challenging election results is well within the law. Maybe this judge needs to be removed since he seems to work against the Constitution.

Why does a Clinton appointed judge from California get to rule on a federal election in which many of us believe was stolen?? President Trump had a RIGHT to demand an investigation. Everybody knows California is different. They do not have the best interest of the country in mind.

So the judges fears that Trump may have broke 1 law? What about all of the criminal laws Joe Biden has committed for decades without even a slap on the wrist? Biden is president now and has stolen more money from taxpayers than Nixon would have ever dreamed! Also the Demo RAT Party was trying to impeach Trump for what the Demo RAT Party was doing AKA RUSSIAN Collusion Biden took $3 Million from the wife of the Governor of the capital city of RUSSIA while Hillary Clinton was selling Uranium/Plutonium to RUSSIA to help them build their Nuclear Stockpile!

President Trump didn’t try to get the traitor Pence to overturn the election~~ he asked him to send the results back to the States for further verification. This judge is another Barry Hussein asskisser.

Biden could not draw flies to his “rally’s”. Biden hid in his basement and rarely held anything close to a rally. Trump filled stadiums and overflowing crowds no matter where he went. People loved Trump while most people could not stand the sight of Biden. He could not speak coherently back then. People knew that we were in great times when Trump ran the country with property and ISIS gone. Why in the hell should anyone believe that a man with a pea brain won the election? “Come on man”

I fully believe that Pres. Trump was trying to put America first and cut through all the political BS we are entangled in. The net result was then being stabbed in the back multiple times, not only by the dem’s, but also many in the Republican party. All of which significantly rocked the political boat and contributed to the re-election failure.

Ref. the discrediting of the electoral result, gosh, I wonder why he has tried to do so? Talk about a rigged scam job! As has been stated by many others before …, hopefully all the folks who purely voted against Trump, did not vote, or did vote for O’Biden, are happy … they sure got what they wanted.

Did you see Biden’s campaign turn outs? Very few supporters turned out for Biden’s campaign trail. The most popular president does not have low voter turn outs. It was the ballot counters that got the votes in the swing states not the voters. Yes something smells fishy maybe Pelosi smell.

This judge is so full of BS, he likely cannot think straight! Anyone who thinks Jan 6 was even an attempted insurrection is dumber than the Biden administration!
What rot, it is just like the book of Hosea in the Bible, God describes exactly what is happening today with the muleheaded dum dums! He also describes their demise, have you read the love letter from God ie: Bible? I suggest you get wisdom from his word!!
