Trump's Attorneys Might Face Sanctions For Frivolous Lawsuit In opposition to Hillary Clinton

This lawsuit is so bad that it may be dumber than the Kraken lawsuits. The attorneys in the Kraken cases are being sanctioned and disbarred. I suspect that a similar fate awaits the idiots who filed this lawsuit.

Trump discovered a few legal professionals prepared to file a RICO lawsuit in opposition to Hillary Clinton, and people legal professionals could possibly be headed for hassle.

Trump’s RICO lawsuit accuses Clinton of, “Performing in live performance, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile overseas sovereignty,”

In different phrases, Donald Trump claims that he was framed,

This all won’t be an issue for Trump’s legal professionals if it wasn’t for the 966-page report issued by the Senate Intelligence Committee that undermines all of his claims.

Targeting trans Texans again, Ken Paxton investigating pharmaceuticals over puberty blockers

Ken really wants to punish and harass the parents of trans children by denying these children needed care

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is investigating two pharmaceutical companies — Endo Pharmaceuticals and AbbVie Inc. — for allegedly advertising puberty blockers to children and their parents to treat gender dysphoria rather than the other medical conditions they are approved to treat.

Paxton opened the investigation in December and filed civil investigative demands with the two companies on Thursday.

This is the latest move in an ongoing effort by Paxton and Gov. Greg Abbott to limit access to gender-affirming medical care for transgender teens in Texas.

Gender-affirming care is a treatment model to address gender dysphoria, the distress a person feels when their gender identity does not match the sex they were assigned at birth. Young people often focus on social transition — dressing a certain way or using different pronouns — but can be prescribed puberty blockers or hormone therapy in consultation with a doctor.

Attorney General Ken Paxton asks Texas Supreme Court to let investigations into transgender families

Ken is counting on the Texas supreme court which is composed of all republicans. Ken really wants to punish and harass any parent of a trans child who is trying to do what is best for such child

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has asked the state Supreme Court to intervene to allow child abuse investigations into parents of transgender children. His request comes just days after a Texas appeals court reinstated a temporary injunction blocking the state's child welfare agency from investigating parents solely because they provide gender-affirming care to their children.

The Texas 3rd Court of Appeals issued the order as part of a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union and Lambda Legal on behalf of the parents of a transgender teenager who were being investigated by child welfare workers.

“Having reviewed the record, we conclude that reinstating the temporary injunction is necessary to maintain the status quo and preserve the rights of all parties,” three appellate justices wrote.

Paxton has asked the state Supreme Court to overturn that injunction, claiming in a petition filed Monday that the injunction "prevents the State from fulfilling its duty to protect Texas children."

DOJ sues Galveston County, alleging redrawn commissioner precincts dilute Black, Hispanic voting

Galveston County is a very conservative part of Texas where "born on the Island" means that you are white and from an old family in the county. This gerrymander is so bad that it is clearly a racial gerrymander

The Department of Justice on Thursday sued Galveston County over its new redistricting map, accusing Republican county officials of violating the Voting Rights Act last year when they carved up their Commissioners Court precincts into four majority-white districts.

The redrawn map dismantles the precinct represented by Commissioner Stephen Holmes, the only Democrat and minority member of the court, all but ensuring his defeat in 2024 if the map remains intact.

Under the new layout, Republicans are poised to gain a 5-0 majority on the governing body for Galveston County, where 38 percent of voters cast their ballots for Democrat Joe Biden.

In a 25-page complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Justice Department officials alleged that Galveston County’s freshly drawn boundaries dilute the voting strength of Black and Hispanic voters, denying them “an equal opportunity to participate in the political process.” The lawsuit accuses the county of violating Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, which broadly bars racially discriminatory voting practices, including those that minimize the voting strength of racial minority groups.
