Supreme Court Rejects Appeal by Trump-alligned Attorneys

Sidney Powell and Lin Wood did not have a good day with the Supreme Court, and it will have a trickle-down effect on Donald Trump.

On Wednesday, Powell and Wood, among others, lost an appeal that had been filed with the Supreme Court regarding sanctions that were placed in Michigan.

No opinion was filed with the ruling.

Pay the Money

All of the parties involved must now pay the fines levied by Michigan in their respective cases.

This means that "Powell, Wood, and the other defendants must pay a total of $132,693.75 to the city of Detroit and another $19,639.75 in legal fees to the state of Michigan," according to the Yahoo report. 

As far as Trump is concerned, this is yet another loss in their collective effort to show that the 2020 election was fraudulent and rigged for Joe Biden.

Thus far, Trump and his surrogates have lost every case on this front.

Sadly, that was not the only bad news that Trump got this week from the courts.

Donald Trump has again faced the wrath of Judge Arthur Engoron.

Before Engoron was a motion by the Trump defense team to delay payment for the massive judgment awarded to Attorney General Letitia James in the New York fraud case.

Engoron has not cut Trump any breaks to this point, and he did not start now, denying the motion.

This is a fairly significant decision for Trump because the interest in the fine accumulates every day that passes.

On a $355 million judgment, it means that Trump is getting hit for about $90,000 every day.

Trump’s attorneys argued, "The attorney general has not filed any motion on notice, nor moved to settle the proposed judgment; her unseemly rush to memorialize a 'judgment' violates all accepted practice in New York state court.”

They might as well have been talking to a wall, however, as Engoron dismissed their arguments.

Engoron, in his ruling, stated, “You have failed to explain, much less justify, any basis for a stay.”

James could not be happier, looking forward to seizing Trump’s assets if does not have that check ready for her in 30 days, which he needs to do just to file his appeal in the case.

James addressed the media, drooling over Trump Tower in New York City as one of the assets she wants to get her hands on.

She stated, "If he does not have funds to pay off the judgment, then we will seek judgment enforcement mechanisms in court, and we will ask the judge to seize his assets.

"We are prepared to make sure that the judgment is paid to New Yorkers, and yes, I look at 40 Wall Street [a Lower Manhattan Trump property] each and every day."

If Trump uses a bond, he will lose about $50 million even if he wins this case.

When you add that to the E. Jean Carroll settlement, Trump’s bank account is taking a big hit regardless of the outcome of this appeal, assuming he is able to post bond or pay the judgment in full before the clock runs out.
