A federal judge just handed President Trump a huge win. Look, the left has engaged in smear after smear because they are still furious Trump won.

They have conducted one political hit job after another political hit job, all out of fear and jealousy, because they have failed the American people.

Bill Barr is doing his best to keep the left’s overreach in check, but the election in 2020 will ultimately decide. From The Washington Examiner:

A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit from a former Trump campaign staffer who accused President Trump of kissing her against her will and the campaign of engaging in wage discrimination against women and African American employees.

In February, former staffer Alva Johnson claimed that during a campaign stop in Florida in August 2016, Trump “forcibly kissed” her outside of one of his rallies.

In the lawsuit Johnson, who is African American, also alleged that she was paid less than her colleagues.

But on Friday, U.S. District Court Judge William Jung, a Trump appointee, scrapped the lawsuit in its present form, saying that it was too political in nature. Jung said he would give Johnson 30 days to refile the suit.

“As currently stated, the Complaint presents a political lawsuit, not a tort and wages lawsuit,” Jung said in the order.

“Plaintiff will receive a fair day in court, but the Court will try a tort and wages dispute—not a political one. If Plaintiff wishes to make a political statement or bring a claim for political purposes, this is not the forum.”

Jung wrote that the part of the lawsuit dealing with the alleged kiss was too muddled and brought in extraneous information.

“Though this simple battery appears to have lasted perhaps 10-15 seconds, Plaintiff has spent 29 pages and 115 paragraphs in the Complaint setting it forth.

Many of these allegations describe 19 unrelated incidents involving women upon whom Defendant Trump allegedly committed nonconsensual acts, over the past four decades with differing circumstances,” Jung concluded.

Johnson claimed then-Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and Karen Giorno, director of the Florida campaign, witnessed the alleged kiss, but both women denied seeing Trump kiss her.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called the accusation “absurd on its face.”

“This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eye witness accounts,” Sanders said in a February statement.
