Default Lawyers for Trump seek to punish Stormy Daniels

LOS ANGELES — Lawyers for President Donald Trump asked a court Monday for nearly $800,000 in lawyers’ fees and penalties from porn actress Stormy Daniels for a failed defamation lawsuit against him.

Attorney Charles Harder defended ringing up a nearly $390,000 legal bill for the president and asked for an equal amount in sanctions as a deterrent against a “repeat filer of frivolous defamation cases.”

So you don't think there should be a penalty for filing a case that fails? Regardless of who it is.... let's say you. Someone sues you, you spend money defending yourself against a frivolous lawsuit. Are you going to just eat that cost? Or because it's Trump, you have no problem applying the law unequally..... ??

Please explain why Trump shouldn't recover damages and expenses from a frivolous lawsuit? Oh wait, it's an attack on Trump so anything goes.

Daniels reneged on a six figure hush money agreement, Then didn't hush.

Then filed a frivolous lawsuit. The requested compensation is too low.

Salty gives me the impression that Obama could walk into a store, shoot everyone there and be blameless in her mind.

Trump could see Obama walk into a store, shoot everyone and she would find a way to blame Trump.

I'm just happy to see Stormy, who now plays the victim, be held accountable for her attempt to embarrass the President and profit from gong public with her allegations. And her sleazy attorney should get the same.

Next, I'd like to see Professor Christine Ford toasted on the same legal rack.

“Allegations”? Wait, are there people who don’t believe that Trump slept with her and paid her off to keep quiet?

Yeah he probably did, or was at least close enough to her that the story could have some meat to it.

But the point is that she excepted the money for whatever reason it was given, and then broke the agreement, and filed suit and lost.

None of which matters to me. She’s not the president. I do care about the president breaking campaign finance laws by paying off his mistresses.

"Breaking campaign laws" (for which Trump hasn't been been found guilty of) isn't even a misdemeanor...It's a fine...

From 2013...

Obama 2008 campaign fined $375,000

Quote:
President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for campaign reporting violations — one of the largest fees ever levied against a presidential campaign, POLITICO has learned.
Hmmmm...Don't remember the outrage and demands from the Left on impeachment...

But when its Obama, it's "different"...
