Trump Scores Big Legal Win

Published on

A state magistrate in Pennsylvania ruled on Monday that a county election worker cannot sue former President Donald Trump for comments he made while in office that cast doubt on the integrity of the 2020 election.

James Savage, a voting machine supervisor in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, outside of Philadelphia, filed two lawsuits against Trump, claiming his November 2020 tweets about the election’s integrity defamed him, subjected him to “hatred” and death threats, and caused him to suffer two heart attacks.

Trump made the remarks during a GOP-led Pennsylvania State Senate Majority Policy Committee examination of allegations of election malfeasance in Gettysburg.

Savage alleged that Trump, his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, two Delaware County poll watchers, and others “conspired to defame him and place him in a false light by publicly and falsely claiming that he tampered with the 2020 Presidential election results,” per Breitbart.

“A Nov. 27, 2020, Trump tweet that was referenced in the suit made claims of missing USB drives and tens of thousands of votes uploaded for [Democrat Joe] Biden,” the news outlet said.

Savage’s legal complaint asserts that Trump and the other defendants in the suit “actively and maliciously disseminated the facially absurd claim that Plaintiff individually somehow changed the vote tabulation by uploading 50,000 votes for Joe Biden from suspiciously collected USB v-cards.”

“The Defendants knew that what they were describing was an absolute impossibility, namely because Mr. Savage was not trained to use the software that uploads data from the USB v-cards.”

Judge Michael Erdos of the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas ruled on Monday that Trump’s statements are covered by presidential immunity.

“Here, then-President Trump’s Gettysburg remarks and his tweet were public,” Erdos wrote, according to The Hill.

“Moreover, the topic of these statements — claims from third parties and the President himself about irregularities in the Presidential election which on their face called into question the integrity of the election and whether now-President Joseph Biden had been duly elected — was undoubtedly a matter of great public concern,” the judge continued.

“Other legal proceedings may examine the propriety of his statements and actions while he was the President and whether, as the plaintiffs in this and other cases contend, it was this conduct which served as the actual threat to our democracy,” Erdos further wrote. “But this case is not the proper place to do so. Here, Trump is entitled to Presidential immunity.” CONTINUE READING…
