Donald Trump and his lawyers should pay more than $65,000 in legal fees to Milwaukee County and face additional sanctions for filing a “baseless” lawsuit trying to overturn the result of the presidential election, Wisconsin’s biggest metropolitan area told a judge.

The former president never had a valid reason to sue to toss out Wisconsin’s 3.3 million votes, a long-shot effort that would have paved the way for the state’s GOP-dominated legislature to appoint a slate of electors more favorable to Trump, the county said in a filing Thursday in federal court in Milwaukee.

“Trump never offered any legal or factual basis for his breathtaking request, and none exists,” the county, a heavily Democratic area in a swing state, said in the filing. “The relief he sought was entirely baseless and amply justifies the imposition of sanctions.”
