Court Rules Donald Trump Can Be Sued for the J6 Breach

A court ruled that Donald Trump is not immune from January 6 lawsuits, despite being President at the time.

On December 1, a federal appeals court ruled that former president Donald Trump is not immune to claims over the breach of the United States Capitol on January 6th, 2021. The court decided that President Trump has not demonstrated presidential immunity from litigation relating to his activities leading up to and on January 6th, 2018.

The decision was primarily based on the judgment that President Trump’s reelection campaign was not an official presidential fact and did not come under presidential protections.

“While presidents are often exercising official responsibilities when they speak on matters of public concern, that is not always the case. When a sitting president running for re-election speaks in a campaign ad or in accepting his political party’s nomination at the party convention, he typically speaks on matters of public concern. Yet he does so in an unofficial, private capacity as office-seeker, not an official capacity as office-holder. And actions taken in an unofficial capacity cannot qualify for official-act immunity,” US Circuit Judge Sri Srinivasan wrote in the ruling.

Judge Gregory Katsas, a Trump appointee, concurred, while Judge Judith Rogers, a Clinton appointee, concurred in part.

The Left promised to sue Donald Trump into bankruptcy, and that’s what they’re trying to do.  They also want to keep him from campaigning. He can be sued by any crackpot leftist now. He will appeal, but decisions out of the Supreme Court can sometimes be disappointing.

This makes him fair game.  His speech was a typical stump speech where he told them to “fight like Hell “and “march peacefully and patriotically.”

The Leftists who want to sue plan to claim that what he did before that [questioning the election] caused J6.

The Left analyzes every word he says from the most negative viewpoint possible.

Scumbag jurists. Only a DC Appeals Ct would ignore facts to continue the political persecution of Trump. Tyranny is here. Fight Back Americans. Take USA back.

The 2020 “election” was over. He had not yet announced his 2024 campaign. Trump was reacting to the massive vote fraud, federal crimes and election rigging in his official capacity when he gave his speech. The FBI riot at the capitol had already started before Trump finished his speech.
This is another “democratic” party court.

We have already now been shown is was a 100% phony setup (as if we didn’t already know) — people were killed by these people who were so thirsty to make this an insurrection. People were beaten by the cops — that was very hard for me to watch them beating, beating, beating that innocent woman. Did she die? Are people still in the gulag? This is a real horror movie still playing out. My heart breaks for all the innocent people in DC that day that have had their lives and their families’ lives ruined.
