    As president of the United States, Donald Trump enjoyed unique protection from legal action, be it criminal or civil.
    Now, after losing the 2020 presidential election, Mr Trump will soon become a private citizen again.
    That means he will lose his presidential privileges, putting him in the crosshairs of litigators and prosecutors.
    “Once he is out of office, the atmosphere will change,” Daniel R Alonso, a former US federal and New York state prosecutor, told the BBC. “He will no longer have the reality or the threat of presidential power to thwart investigations.”
    A wide-ranging criminal investigation in New York is the most serious legal concern for Mr Trump and his real-estate company, the Trump Organization.
    On top of that, there is an array of lawsuits ranging from allegations of fraud by a family member to sexual harassment by an advice columnist.
    A legal storm is brewing. Here, we consider how the six biggest legal battles may develop.

    1) The hush-money allegations

    Except this isn’t Trump – it’s the State of Texas. Have you read the case they are making? It’s about the Constitution.

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is an old Republican pal of Trump and is being deployed to keep Trump’s ‘protestations’ in the public eye.  It’s an old trick.

    Paxton is claiming that officials in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin unlawfully changed voting laws because of the pandemic and contends that Texas voters were ‘harmed’ by those states’ alleged ‘violations of equal-protection laws’ – which is, at best, hypocritical because Texas has always strongly defended the Rights of every State to run its own elections.

    If the Supreme Court has any sense it will toss it out as a ‘frivolous law suit’.

    When the georgia gov (Kemp.) asked for the signatures to be matched in the audit ,next day I think his daughter’s boyfriend aged 20 was killed in a car EXPLOSION that was heard over a mile away. This is how these people operate. They will do anything for power. They are sic ,and I for one will be glad to see it all exposed and defeated .We live in a world where highly comprimised people have the levers of power.

    I agree the Supreme Court is unlikely to allow the Texas claim that the four States changes to mail in ballot procedures breached their own and Federal election laws. But if it does, Alabama and Louisiana say they are likely to join in.

    Yup – Trump and Paxton clearly have a history of fixing problems for each other:

    As for Alabama and Louisiana joining in – let them wheel in all the ‘Evidence’ and we’ll see what happens.  If their evidence is solid then there will be an investigation: If their evidence proves to be yet another load of ‘He said-She said’ allegations it will have to get tossed.

    Doubt they’d be offering any evidence. Just joining Texas in alleging their electorate have been harmed by the four States illegal election processes.

    The Supreme Court has just thrown out the Republican bid to overturn the Pennsylvania result with a single sentence ruling: “The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied.”

    That was yesterday. Apparently waiting a year to complain that a legal change to electoral procedure was unconstitutional was seen as opportunistic.  No surprise there…

    the single sentance ruling by the supreme court is damning in itself.

    they usually have 2 opinions on the evidence that are quite lengthy, the one that they give as thier verdict and the other side the disenting view if the court is split.

    simply issuing a statement that the suit is denied is almost saying stop wasting our time.

    which is stark considering he nominated 3 of them.

    So, 17 states have joined the Texas action and the MSM can no longer ignore what’s going on.

    All 50 states and the District of Columbia have now certified their results confirming Biden will be president.

    Remember the Supreme Court only has duristiction over Federal cases it does not get involved in State cases.

    Now 19 states including Arizona.

    Regardless of how anyone feels about the US election results, this challenge to the voting systems in place in the four swing States that came out for Biden is unprecedented and the success or otherwise of it will have world-reaching effect.

    Doesn’t anyone else think it strange that it’s not headline news?  Doesn’t anyone else think it strange it doesn’t even get a mention on the BBC?

    I don’t think it’s strange wigwam, there have been soooo many cases before this one that it is not, at this point, news worthy. If it gets traction then it will get “air time”. It just magnifies the MANY problems there is with the American political system.

    What the “orange one” and the Republican Party are doing is splitting an already volitile country all for their own ends.

    But surely that’s what politicians do?

    Biden’s going to have a tough time if Georgia sends back Republican senators on January 5th.  A Republican controlled senate will be going all out to implicate Biden in the corruption surrounding Hunter et al being laid bare by the FBI investigation into his taxes..

    I think there are always red lines wigwam and fabricating reasons for losing an election must be one of them. If there is voter fraud or any other illigal activities going on the proof should be brought in front of a judge.

    Control of the senate is a must if Biden wants to get anything done during his, almost certain one term.

    The investigation into his sons tax affairs should be a non political affair. If he has broken the law he should tried as an American citizen not Biden’s son.

    The whole Biden family are implicated in his son(s) affairs. Hard to keep him and his grift separate.

    If that’s the case they should all be prosecuted.

    Wigwam depending on how this all works out we could be looking at civil unrest in the USA and all because Trump is a narcissist. The world revolves around himself and the problem is there are many who believe everything he says. Its almost cult like.

    Evidence, evidence evidence, if there was wrong doing let’s see the evidence without evidence its all bull sh\£.
