However, as stated in the original filings in the Michigan lawsuit, the lawyers introduced conspiracy theories involving Venezuela and China being tied to the supposed election interference.

“Abuse of the judicial system

The attorneys are mandated to remit $132,693.75 to the city of Detroit and an additional $19,639.75 in legal expenses to the state of Michigan. The legal represtentation for the state was by a group called the Lawyers for the City of Detroit, and they will be compensated from the total amount owed to the city.

Judge Parker’s Decision

The Judge stated ‘lawsuit was based on “speculation, conjecture, and unwarranted suspicion.”

Furthermore the judge Parker’s 2021 verdict added, “It is one thing to take on the charge of vindicating rights associated with an allegedly fraudulent election,” but “It is another to take on the charge of deceiving a federal court and the American people into believing that rights were infringed, without regard to whether any laws or rights were in fact violated. This is what happened here.”

Democrats Are To Blame

The lawyers claimed in the appeal that Democrats were trying to “marginalize political opponents and destroy their counsel.”

Even though the appellate court reduced the sum owed by the lawyers, it still affirmed the ruling made by US District Judge Linda Parker for the Eastern District of Michigan. Even with the SCOTUS’ denial, this ruling remains mostly intact.

“Release the Kraken

While on Fox In 2020, Powell suggested that there was voter fraud in large numbers that was allegdly “organized and conducted with the help of Silicon Valley people, the big tech companies, the social media companies, and even the media companies.”

She also stated “I’m going to release the Kraken,” which eventually became a source of mockery against election deniers.

Additional Challenges

The “Kraken” lawyer Powell, was sued by Election technology firm Dominion Voting Systems for claiming the company had fixed the election leaning it to President Biden’s advantage.

The company also sued Rudy Guilliani for the exact same amount.

According to reports SCOTUS will most likely side with Trump.

The Supreme Court Has More Decisions Related To Trump

One of the most important questions that has come up with Trump’s defense is the claim of presidential immunity. The lawyers that represented Trump’s put forth arguments that suggested he should be “immune” from the criminal prosecution in the charges alleging that he tried to overturn the 2020 elections.

This case, initiated by special couple Jack Smith and presided over by Judge Chutkan, is on hold pending the decision of SCOTUS’s.

The Case In Georgia Is In Trouble

Fani Willis,district attorney who was responsible for bringing forth the charges against Trump and 18 co-defendants, was made to reject “salacious” claims that both her and top prosecutor Nathan Wade profited from their romantic involvement.

One co-defendant alleged that Willis brought Wade on, claiming the two were already involved in an affair. Alleging the two used taxpayers’ money to go on luxurious vacations.

No Trial Date Set For The Case

Despite Willis believing that the trial could be wrapped up before the election, it doesn’t look like optics were in her favor.

Recent events brought to light regarding Willis’ personal life could postpone or even disqualify her completely from the case. However, the case is still viewed as being very strong, and if Trump were found to be guilty on the charges brought against him in Georgia, no current president would be able to pardon him because of state laws.
