Maybe now we'll find out if Trump gave himself a secret pardon post-insurrection, prior leaving WH. LaMouffette Mar 2021 #12
Do secret pardon apply to civil actions? infullview Mar 2021 #14
Is it a civil suit? I hope so! I don't think a pardon would apply, but I'm not a lawyer. LaMouffette Mar 2021 #19
Yes, it is a civil suit filed by a private individual. It is not an indictment. 33taw Mar 2021 #20

I wouldn't be surprised if Sicknick's family comes at him with a wrongful death suit.

Trump sues people at the drop of a hat (or the loss of an election). I can't wait to witness the avalanche of civil suits that will now rain down upon him.

But I'm waiting for the day he is served, cuffed, and frog marched out of any place he is hiding.
Because you know, when it gets bad, he will go into hiding.

15. Trump's process server's thoughts... words
Wed Mar 3, 2021, 01:56 PM
Mar 2021

Server: "Are you Donald J Trump?"
Trump: "Yes, I am Donald J Trump."
Server: Hands Trump a #10 Envelope. Says, "You've been served." (Immediately turns to leave. His job is done.)
Trump: Opens #10, (or has caddy/lawyer/Guilliani-styled character do it for him.)
Trump: "I've been served."
Server:
(In thoughtful retrospective mode, cause this if frigging awesome.)

Server: Nobody gonna believe this

It's my memory and what a great one to have.


America is jealous of that single process server's claim to fame.

Individually.
I don't know if that's possible, but hell man: what a fucked up bunch of wimp-assed traitors the Republicans are.
Next time someone tells me their Republican, I'm shaking my head and walking away. Terrible people!!!

Do they still serve people like I've seen on TV shows a million times? (ie: a process server who must sneak up on them, or catch them in an unguarded moment?)

I have tried and tried to imagine Trump being served a subpoena while residing at Mar a Lago but for the life of me I couldn't see how in the world that could happen at his resort-fortress.

It never occurred to me there was a way to formally serve notice of a lawsuit through registered mail. I'm not sure if that has equal value as a subpoena or not. But hell, it's better than a freaking poke in the eye.
