OMG: Judge in Covington Suit Makes It Official That The Politico-Media Class Has Greater Rights Than The Plebians, Ruling That Elizabeth Warren Cannot be Sued for Slandering a Child Because of "Sovereign Immunity"

This is huge.

Slandering children is part of Warren's official governmental duties, we are now informed.

Anything necessary to protect the Ruling Class from the dirty commoners.

A Kentucky judge has dropped presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D.-Mass., from a libel lawsuit filed by eight Covington Catholic High School students on grounds of sovereign immunity.


Only Warren and Rep. Deborah Haaland, D.-N.M., were dismissed from the suit. "Sovereign immunity 'extends to agencies of the United States' or 'federal officers [acting] in their official capacities,'" the decision by District Judge William O. Bertelsman read.

Sovereign immunity is the doctrine that the U.S. government or those acting on its behalf may not be sued without its consent.

The Fake Indian Elizabeth Warren had slanderously lied, claiming that the Lying Indian (who falsely claimed to be a "Vietnam Veteran" in his numerous media appearances over the years) had "endured hateful taunts."

He had not. It was the Covington kids who endured hateful racial taunts from the Black Israelites that the Lying Indian joined.

Commenting on Twitter -- about a controversy which the Senate was not investigating, about which the Senate was considering no legislation -- is now part of Warren's (or any government leftist's) "official duties," we are being told, and they have the right to slander Dirty Filthy Commoner Children without fear of lawsuit when the whim takes them.

Tim Pool makes a good point -- why has this doctrine never yet been used to excuse Trump from lawsuit?

By the way: Warren is claiming the federal government's sovereign immunity. But a sovereign may consent to be sued.

Why doesn't Trump just so decree it? I think he can withdraw Warren's alleged "sovereign immunity," though I am nowhere close to knowing that for a fact.

And we're still waiting for the judge to rule on media figures' immunity -- like Ana Navarro.

Given that this guy willfully misread the basic black-letter law on defamation to toss this suit the first time, does anyone doubt he'll likewise soon find that Ana Navarro has a special Media People Are Special dispensation to defame children and implicitly direct antifa violence towards them?
