Donald Trump “can be sued in civil lawsuits related to the January 6, 2021, US Capitol riot in a long-awaited, consequential decision from the federal appeals court in Washington, DC. . . . The decision arises out of lawsuits brought by Capitol Police officers and Democrats in Congress.”
Yes—the door is now open for a potential floodgate of civil suits brought by those who put their lives on the line to protect our Capitol against January 6 defendants, and Donald. Each case carries the possibility of potentially hefty punitive damages.
But that’s not all. While the media has focused on the Court’s decision itself, this may also spell trouble for Donald’s CRIMINAL case too:
According to legal expert Joe Gallina, “While this was a civil case, today’s significant decision could actually provide clues as to how Judge Chutkan will rule on Trump’s criminal immunity claims as well.”
“While federal civil decisions typically do not have a direct binding effect on federal criminal cases,” he continued, “the set of circumstances both courts are weighing are the same. Over the years the courts have applied vast immunity to presidents, but here we have a particularly historic decision with weight that sets the stage for the upcoming decision on his immunity in his criminal case.”
“And,” Gallina concluded, “the decision here was unanimous.”
UPDATE FROM MOMENTS AGO:
Our legal expert was right:
Per NBC News:
Judge Chutkan “has denied two of former President Donald Trump's motions to dismiss the federal election interference case against him.
U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, who is overseeing the case, ruled against the first motion by saying that presidents do not have absolute immunity from criminal prosecution for acts that fall within their official responsibilities unless first impeached and convicted in the Senate.”
What happens now?
Donald will almost certainly appeal the civil decision because he knows that running out the clock is always his best strategy. The court in his civil case also left open the possibility for Donald to make more persuasive arguments about why his actions on January 6 should be considered official presidential acts, rather than illegal and unconstitutional efforts to remain in power.
In the meantime, we can celebrate the fact that the rule of law is holding up, and the process for holding Donald accountable for January 6 is still unfolding as it should—if slowly.
Thank you for reading this far!
I am going to be honest with you—calling out my family’s despicable, anti-American, and potentially criminal activity takes a toll. But I won’t stand by and watch Donald destroy our Democracy.
