🚨🚨Kari Lake: Signature Verification Going to Trial; Order is a Problem - Judge Limiting Scope/Changing Complaint

That title is the best way I can explain what is happening in the Lake case right now.

On Friday, there was a hearing on the Defendants Motion to Dismiss on the……
The judge denied the reconsideration - and denied the motion to dismiss the signature verification claims. However, in his order, he makes a series of statements that appear to contradict each other and also misrepresent Lake’s complaint. For example:

Here he seems to…… Image
Then, he goes on to order that @KariLake prove an absolutely impossible (and incorrect) fact set at trial— something they have never argued or placed in a complaint in anyway, and is again, nearly an IMPOSSIBLE legal standard… It’s insanity, TBH.

The judge is completely…… ImageImage
👆This should read *any way- not anyway.
This judge is stating that to succeed, Lake has to prove that Maricopa County’s higher level signature reviewers conducted NO signature verification or curing, and in doing so systematically failed to materially comply with the law. This is in addition to the requirement that she…… Image
First, Lake never narrowed her complaint to just “Level 2 and 3” verification. Second, as far as I know, she never claimed that there was NO action taken to comport with statue by Maricopa, only that they didn’t do it consistently and that their lack of attention to procedure……
They request oral argument. That would have to be today. The trial is supposed to start….. tomorrow. Image
Here the argument begins— the complaint in the Lake case pleads violations at all levels of signature verification— not just 2 and 3. Maricopa spent a lot of time insulting their level 1 signature verification team because THEY are the ones who signed sworn affidavits that the…… Image
Another contentious point came at the end of the hearing on Friday, when Maricopa attempted to thwart Lakes expert witnesses. That is complicated to explain, but it is why Lake’s team is doing what they do here— talking about how continuing analysis they have done doesn’t “add”…… Image
This is part of the declaration being used as proof of the claims Lake is making- there just isn’t any way that they could have followed procedure (even at level 1) There were 274,319 instances where there evaluation of a signature was made in less than or equal to TWO SECONDS…… ImageImage
Here Lake corrects the judge using the complaint— again clarifying that ALL levels of signature verification experienced failures of process- not just 2 and 3, and that their complaint (or their oral argument the other day, which I listened to) does NOT limit them to just 2 and…… ImageImage
Additionally, Maricopa withheld evidence needed for the expert, and is now claiming that Lake waited too long to include that evidence, thereby prejudicing them for trial— when in actuality THEY MAINTAIN the evidence, so couldn’t be prejudiced by it… Maricopa is playing games..…… ImageImage
And now we wait…

To summarize, this judge changed it up - and appears to be again inventing election law out of whole cloth (h/t Adam) by requiring that Lake prove that Level 2 and 3 verifiers did not follow ANY signature matching procedures. I’ll stop there. It’s patently…… Image

🚨🚨THREAD: Flynn response to governments motion to change venue from FL to DC

If you click below you can get up to speed so far. @GenFlynn is suing the US Government for malicious prosecution and abuse of process. The government filed a motion to move the case from the middle……
General Flynn is represented by @JGreaves1787 of the Binnall Law Group. @jbinnall Image
Plaintiff argues that the motion to transfer is a “transparent attempt” to “forum shop” - the government thinks they will be able to win if they hear the case in DC. This would be prejudicial to the Plaintiff, who has the right to choose venue, because the entire case is based on…… Image

🚨🚨MEGA THREAD: Missouri v. Biden

Many of you have heard me discuss this case in detail, as I have been reporting on it diligently for the past year. However, some of you are unsure of why it is important, or what it all means. This thread will serve as a summary to this point,……
Missouri v. Biden was filed on May 5, 2022. Since it was initially filed, it has taken quite a trip through the court system. The complaint has been amended 3 times, with the most recent amendment being to transform the case into a class suit - this due to the overwhelming……

From Durhams “report.” People refused to cooperate. So they just give up? This was a criminal investigation. Image
This report is terrible so far. I started out very hopeful that Durham would do something. Once the first “indictment” rolled around I had completely changed that assessment. People were angry with me for saying it - but it needed to be said. Image
There are two standards of justice - one for those of us lowly peons - and republicans - and those who aren’t. We get destroyed and held captive. They get coddled and protected. If this section was meant to make anyone “feel” better, it did nothing. Image

🚨🚨THREAD: New Filing in @KariLake election integrity case

RECAP: There is a hearing on Friday to determine how the new action on the signature verification will go forward. This is being filed as a separate motion for relief from judgement.

Get popcorn, coffee, whatever.…… Image
New evidence shows Maricopa falsely certified that it passed L&A testing, and then secretly tested all of the tabulators on three different days. It also shows they KNEW that 260 of the tabulators WOULD FAIL on Election Day. Image
New evidence also shows that Director of Elections Scott Jarrett gave FALSE TESTIMONY at trial concerning the BOD printers failures that caused the tabulators to malfunction. Image

🚨THREAD: The USG doesn’t want the Flynn case to be heard in Florida. This will be a thread of their legal argument for doing so. For the full motion, see:…
They start with precedent; in short, the Plaintiff’s choice of venue shouldn’t be disturbed unless the defendant (in this case the government) can show that it is clearly outweighed by other consideration, and that it the Plaintiff’s choice of venue is granted less weight when…… Image
The choice to grant the motion to change venue will come at the sole discretion of the judge.

As the filing states, first the court has to find that the Plaintiff could have originally brought this action in DC, and then, whether transferring the case there would serve the…… Image
