Today a judge has denied an emergency motion to stop the President Trump campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday.
The denial came after local lawyers asked the state court to block the event unless campaign organizers agreed to adhere to social distancing recommendations to limit the spread of COVID-19.
One of the attorneys on the lawsuit trying to block the rally, Paul Demuro, said that despite the emergency motion being denied –the case will head to the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
“The lawsuit is still intact and moving forward,” DeMuro remarked to CNN. “We will continue to fight in the Oklahoma Supreme Court.”
Citing Tulsa health department statistics showing that the highest new coronavirus case count occurred this Monday, the lawyers are suing the parent company of the Bank of Oklahoma Center, the venue slated to host the rally, alleging “despite this alarming uptick in COVID-19 infections in Tulsa County, ASM Global plans to bring tens of thousands of people into an enclosed arena in downtown Tulsa for a political rally on June 20, 2020 … without putting precautions in place to prevent the spread of the virus.”
“As currently planned, the Rally will endanger not only the health of the guests in attendance, but the entire Tulsa community and any community to which the guests may afterward travel. If ASM Global moves forward with the Rally without adequate review, planning, training, protective equipment, and safeguards, cases of COVID-19—and the unavoidable attendant deaths—will rise,” the petition states.
The Trump campaign declined to comment on the lawsuit.
Earlier in the week the Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale posted on social media that over one million tickets have been requested for the Tulsa event.
SCOTUS Denies House Dems, Hands Trump Another Victory in Battle Against Fake Russia Probe
Democrats in the House of Representatives had their request to see previously unreleased documents from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into wither there was collaboration between Russia and the Trump administration denied Wednesday by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Originally in 2019 the House Democrats requested the sealed documentations from the Mueller probe, which includes grand jury testimony, as they prepared for the impeachment hearings and proceedings against President Trump. The Democrats have suggested that the grand jury materials could reveal new misconduct that could potentially form the basis of new articles of impeachment.In March of this year the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit agreed with the the Democrat lead House Judiciary Committee and called for the release of the documents.
In response to the demand both the White House and the Department of Justice asked the Supreme Court to block access to the documentation.
In a brief to the Supreme Court, Solicitor General Noel Francisco alleged that the Democrat majority Congress had no need to see the documents since President Trump had already been impeached and acquitted. Francisco also noted that no indication had been provided by the House Judiciary Committee or the House of Representatives that another impeachment would be happening in the future.
The high court’s action will keep the documents out of congressional hands at least until the case is resolved, which is not likely to happen before 2021. The delay is a victory for President Trump, who also is mounting a court fight against congressional efforts to obtain his banking and other financial records. Those cases are expected to be decided in the coming days or weeks.
