The DOJ is fighting hard to protect its kingdom. The corrupt DOJ realizes that if Donald Trump is elected as presiden5t again, their days as SS of the Democratic Party is numbered. Right now they have it their own way as they target those who committed no crimes on J6, including Enrique Tarrio who wasn’t even in Washington on that day. On the other hand, their agents work around the clock to protect the Biden Crime Family even as illegal acts continue to pile up.
They now insist that President Trump can be sued for telling his supporters to march patriotically and peacefully to the Capitol. Gee, the nerve of some people. These are the same scum who refused to bring charges against members of antifa and BLM while they attacked innocent people and burned down cities, including federal buildings and police stations. The left defines crimes as anything Trump does and peaceful protests as riots when less than a thousand buildings are burned down.
Attorneys for the DOJ Civil Division filed a court brief in response to the D.C. U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on President Trump’s claim of immunity when giving a speech, something that has never been challenged against any president ever before. The DOJ says that Trump can be sued for his comments that did not include a call for riots or insurrection. But, who can blame them? He has beaten them back on every attempt to frame him, they could possibly think of and they have gotten their butts kicked so hard they have to unbutton their shirts to use the bathroom.
Government lawyers wrote:
“Speaking to the public on matters of public concern is a traditional function of the Presidency, and the outer perimeter of the President’s Office includes a vast realm of such speech.”
“But that traditional function is one of public communication. It does not include incitement of imminent private violence.”
Two Capitol Police officers and 11 Democrats have sued Trump in an attempt to hold him liable for the events of January 6, 2021, when a crowd of people entered the U.S. Capitol, disrupting lawmakers who were meeting to certify President Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory. The plaintiffs include Reps. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Eric Swalwell (D-CA), and Maxine Waters (D-CA).
Looming large over the litigation is Trump’s speech at a rally on the White House Ellipse before the Capitol breach. Trump urged people to “fight like hell” over allegations of election fraud. And he remarked on supporters marching to the U.S. Capitol “to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
Trump’s lawyers argued their client was protected by his “ironclad presidential immunity as it relates to speechmaking.” But U.S. District Court Judge Judge Amit Mehta ruled in February of last year that the lawsuits, which were consolidated into one case, could move forward as Trump’s message to supporters was “the essence of civil conspiracy.” Trump’s legal team sought relief from the appellate court, which led to an invitation to the DOJ to weigh in on the question of presidential immunity.
DOJ lawyers wrote in their Thursday filing that the judge concluded the plaintiffs’ complaints “plausibly” allege that Trump’s speech at a rally on the White House Ellipse during which he encouraged supporters to march to the U.S. Capitol “precipitated” the violence that followed.
“The United States expresses no view on that conclusion, or on the truth of the allegations in plaintiffs’ complaints,” the government lawyers added. “But in the United States’ view, such incitement of imminent private violence would not be within the outer perimeter of the Office of the President of the United States.”
