Judge Dismisses Case and the DNC Weeps
Judge Dismisses Case and the DNC Weeps
Let’s face it. The last few months haven’t been good ones for the Democrats. The Mueller Report didn’t deliver as expected. There is dissension in the ranks as AOC and company attempt their coup against Pelosi’s rule. Most of all, Trump is still in office. Yesterday, buried by the coverage of the latest debate, came word that the judge had tossed the Dem’s lawsuit “arguing that the Russian government, President Trump’s campaign and WikiLeaks carried out a conspiracy to influence the 2016 U.S. election.”
The screams you heard early yesterday evening wasn’t excitement in anticipation of the Democratic debate. No, it was the gnashing of teeth and cries of outrage from certain New York politicians upon learning U. S. District Judge John Koeltl dismissed the suit. How it must rankle those Dems to know a fellow New Yorker took a legal stance that doesn’t fit their narrative.
To start, Koeltl ruled he couldn’t hear the complaint against Russia, citing the doctrine of sovereign immunity.
The remedies for hostile actions by foreign governments are state actions, including sanctions imposed by the executive and legislative branches of government,” Koeltl’s written opinion said.
If that wasn’t enough of a blow, Koeltl decided the First Amendment–you know, that pesky amendment the Dems would dearly love to curtail even further so we can’t criticized them, can’t freely gather in public places and can’t counter their propaganda–protected WikiLeaks and the Trump campaign.
How the Dems and mainstream media must have whinged and whined to have Koeltl cite the Pentagon Papers and the decision the New York Times and Washington Post were “constitutionally protected” when they published the secret documents. Damn but that history repeating itself can be inconvenient at times, can’t it?
If all that wasn’t bad enough, at least in the eyes of the DNC, this has to take the cake.
In sum, the DNC does not allege any facts to show plausibly that any of the defendants, other than the Russian Federation, had any role in hacking the DNC’s computers or stealing its information — it attributes that conduct only to the Russian federation. And the DNC does not dispute that the documents were of public importance. Therefore, the First Amendment protects the publication of those stolen documents,” Koeltl wrote.
Poor DNC. Mueller failed them. Now Judge Koeltl failed them.
Of course, the DNC’s early reaction to the ruling does everything it can to cast blame on the justice system instead of where it belongs, with their own IT and cyber security specialists. According to spokesperson Adrienne Watson, all the ruling does is raise “serious concerns about our protections from foreign election interference and the theft of private property to advance the interests of our enemies.”
Let’s forget about the fact the district court wasn’t the proper venue for the suit against Russia. Let’s forget about judicial precedence. Of course, the DNC and its supporters are willing to forget just about anything if it helps them get rid of Trump.
The irony of the ruling is that Koeltl is a Clinton appointee. Not only did he rule in favor of the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks based on the First Amendment, he also tossed the argument that the Dem’s fund-raising related records were not trade secrets. Therefore, they didn’t qualify for special protection.
DNC, you’re out!
But don’t think this means the Dems in the House of Representatives will finally accept the findings of the Mueller Report. They will continue the fight to drive Trump from office simply because they can’t get over the fact Hillary Clinton isn’t sitting in the Oval Office as president. What they don’t get (and here’s hoping they don’t find a clue) is their actions are driving folks who have been sitting on the fence into the Trump camp.
After all, how much time and money have they spent trying to prove he stole the election? How much of their “work time” has focused on that and not on the business of doing what is best for their constituents? They have forgotten they are there to represent the residents of their respective districts, not to grind their political ax and act like schoolyard bullies.
Or, perhaps more appropriately, spoiled brats. The next thing you know, AOC and company will throw themselves down in the aisle of the House chamber, kicking their feet and holding their collective breath until they turn blue.
Of course, Trump isn’t being the most gracious of winners, not that I blame him. It didn’t take him long to hit up Twitter with his response.
….vindication & exoneration from the Russian, WikiLeaks and every other form of HOAX perpetrated by the DNC, Radical Democrats and others. This is really big “stuff” especially coming from a highly respected judge who was appointed by President Clinton. The Witch Hunt Ends!

So cry those tears of frustration, Dems. If this was a baseball game, you didn’t just strike out, you whiffed at each pitch, missing it by a mile. Now grow up, admit you underestimated Trump in 2016 and you didn’t have a clue what voters cared about. Perhaps if you stopped trying to force us into universal health care and quit coming up with ways to make our country less secure, all the while reaching even deeper into our pockets to support your pet projects, you might learn something.
Nah, who am I kidding? They won’t stop and listen any more than they will stop trying to find some way to warp the Mueller findings to fit their approved narrative. And all the while, the country suffers and our security is lowered because they won’t do their jobs.
The scales of justice tried to balance out and found you wanting, Dems. Lady Justice may be blind but she isn’t dumb. Go home and get your proverbial house in order before you try yet again to remake ours.
