Former President Donald Trump isn't immune from being held accountable 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.

More: The decision to allow the January 6 lawsuits against Trump to proceed was unanimous among the three judges on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Greg Katsas concurred with the decision, and Judge Judith Rogers concurred in part.

The decision allows three lawsuits against Trump from Capitol police officers and members of Congress who are seeking recovery from emotional distress and physical injury from the attack to move forward.

The complaints largely rely on a federal law prohibiting individuals from conspiring to prevent someone from holding federal office.

Given how long this decision took, I really thought this was going the other way.

By the way, it was a 3-0 decision including the Trump appointed Judge.

Snidely (Whiplash) Trump: Curses, foiled again!


They'll have to get in line. Letitia James, the State of New York and the IRS are after every dime he owns. And that's before the penalty has been announced. Then comes the mortgage holders and various law firms and contractors Trump has stiffed over the years.

I wish the Capitol Police officers luck and I hope they get a bundle. But they'll have to hurry. Trump is about to turn into that proverbial turnip.

His office will be a phone booth and he'll be panhandling for cab fare before this is over.

Of course, his son-in-law might slip him a few bucks. Jared might even make Trump a silent, unofficial, no paper trail, income tax free partner in his new $2 Billion investment fund that he got from Saudi Arabia.

That might work . . . until it doesn't.

I'm just saying, that Trump might not be completely destitute ~ or down to his last coupon for a McDonalds cheeseburger.

Well, one has to admit that, as Putin's buddy, out to make America look weak and corrupt and confused, Trump is the greatest. It could be that there will be a time, say in less than a year, that he will win the Presidency and be in jail. Russian money sure got what they paid for.
Thanks Republican Party.
