Marc Scaringi, an attorney who took over President Donald Trump’s feeble voter fraud lawsuit in Pennsylvania on Monday after the lawyers heading the case abandoned ship, seems to have had a whiplash-inducing change of heart as to how effective Trump’s corrupt attempts to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory via the courts will be.

Scaringi, who also hosts a radio program, told listeners on November 7 that Trump’s court fights are unlikely to work out for the President.

“In my opinion, there really are no bombshells that are about to drop that will derail a Biden presidency, including these lawsuits,” Scaringi said.

The lawyer asserted that while “some” of the cases “have merit,” ultimately they won’t deliver Trump the win he’s been digging for.

“At the end of the day, in my view, the litigation will not work,” Scaringi said. “It will not reverse this election.”

Scaringi’s comments were first flagged by MediaMatters news director John Whitehouse.

The Washington Post also reported on a post on Scaringi’s blog stating that Biden had “successfully claimed the role of the 46th president of the United States.” The post appears to have been deleted.

  1. So they’re conceding the point?

    How about you, Fatso?

  2. Message to any lawyer working for the Dump now. Get out, you’ll never get paid and your reputation will be in the toilet.

  3. “Some” of the cases “have merit”…

    Name two that do.


    That’s what I thought.

    I was about to write “it’s one thing to admit this on your radio show and quite another to admit it once you are actually the counsel” when it occurred to me how absurd it is that the attorney for POTUS has a radio show. I was also going to say that I hate to be a snob about this kind of thing but I’m won’t. It’s absurd to be pursuing such a baseless claim that you have to keep replacing your attorneys as they realize that you not only have no case, you also have no problem destroying their reputations, and you have no intention of paying the fees.
    As the news unfolds, it is also becoming much more obvious that the rigging of the election, the voter repression, and the complete abandonment of any pretense of a free and fair election did indeed occur, and it happened at the direction of Donald Trump.

  5. Let me add something that perhaps TPM should have included: At the 2016 Republican National Convention, this lawyer, Marc Scaringi, was a Trump delegate.
