I wasn't quite that cynical about it; for about a nanosecond.
A draft complaint against the New York Times has appeared on the Trump campaign website concerning a Max Frankel op-ed. https://t.co/WtWS22lcfv pic.twitter.com/8y5YpKmPNJ— southpaw (@nycsouthpaw) February 26, 2020
It’ll be interesting to see if this gets filed in this form. A number of statements included are misrepresentations of the facts. For instance, the brief op-ed is not a story and the Mueller report did not include a finding that “there was no conspiracy.” pic.twitter.com/6xaTj5qbKH— southpaw (@nycsouthpaw) February 26, 2020
A clown suit and a waste of the court's time, IOW. But it will be another basis for fundraising, and the court will dismiss it at some point, without holding the plaintiff (The President) accountable. Because that's a very high bar to clear, and while the court hates having its time wasted, it hates even more appearing to be barring plaintiffs from seeking relief in a court of law.
So there are reasons penalties for frivolous suits seldom happen. But it's frustrating, nonetheless.
