A Wisconsin judge representing the Trump campaign in that state calls it “a sad, sad state of affairs” that lawyers and judges are being intimidated by the left to the point where they are not accepting and hearing election fraud cases.
“We have to acknowledge that the court system has been deeply intimidated by the left, just as the lawyers have been intimidated,” James Troupis told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Dec. 16, as reported by The Epoch Times.
In hearings before state legislatures, witness after witness has described similar intimidation and ostracism of Republican poll watchers at big-city polling locations in swing states on Nov. 3, accompanying a flood of accusations of vote fraud.
As a witness during the Senate hearing, Troupis explained how he decided to represent the campaign in their challenge to election results when many lawyers were refusing. He said that he believes many law firms did not want to take election lawsuits due to fear of retaliation by the left.
“ … Virtually every major law firm in this country and in this city refused to represent the president. Not because of the lack of merit in his claims — we’ve certainly demonstrated that there’s merit — but because of the cancel culture,” Troupis said.
“Because of the environment that has been created by the left that has intimidated lawyers so that they can’t be here. They’re not here, from the giant law firms, precisely because they were ordered by their management committees and others that, ‘You cannot take those cases. The reasons you cannot take those cases is because our clients, or the Democrat party, or the incoming administration will remember that and they will hold it against you.’”
He added, “As a former judge, I was so incensed by that.”
Numerous other lawyers representing the president and his campaign have described harassment or threats after their decision to take election cases.
