Pro-Trump Attorneys Facing The End Of Their Legal Careers For Lying In Election Lawsuits

Two attorneys who repeatedly signed on to lawsuits claiming fake election fraud in the 2020 election in an effort to overturn the will of the voters could soon be looking for new careers, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Sidney Powell and Lin Wood are facing disbarment and the loss of their license to practice law following a complaint by attorneys for the city of Detroit who requested a formal reprimand against the two pro-Trump lawyers and a referral for disbarment and significant financial penalties.

“Lawyers can’t just say stuff,” said Tyler Maulsby, an expert on legal ethics and professional responsibility. “By signing your name to this pleading, you are saying you have concluded, based on your legal training, that there is some basis you can prove in discovery.”

Powell and Wood eagerly sued the state of Michigan on behalf of a small number of voters in the state, alleging that state election officials had manipulated software used to calculate ballots. They claimed the software had been made in foreign countries. The suit was rejected in federal court.

“The extent of the factual and legal errors in this complaint would warrant sanctions under any circumstances,” wrote Detroit’s lawyer, David Fink, to U.S. District Judge Linda V. Parker, “but here the court’s processes are being perverted to undermine our democracy and to upset the peaceful transfer of power.”

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has indicated she may also seek severe sanctions against lawyers who filed bogus election suits against the Wolverine State.

How sweet it would be to see all of these harebrained attorneys who wanted to steal an election from the voters unable to make a buck in the legal field. Maybe they can get gigs spinning conspiracy theories on Fox News.
