Trump Should be Indicted, Arrested and Prosecuted

Trump Should be Indicted, Arrested and Prosecuted for Obstruction of Justice, Insurrection, Sedition, Treason and an attempted coup to overthrow the United States Government

 

The Mueller Report which was released in April of 2019 established that Trump Obstructed Justice on at least 10 occasions. Within one month of taking office, the Merrick Garland DOJ should have filed charges against Trump for Obstruction of Justice and arrested him for those offenses.

 

Trump should be Indicted For Insurrection. Veteran House Counsel Says It’s Time To Act

After the indictment of former Trump White House aide Peter Navarro, the Jan. 6 committee’s probe is intensifying as its first prime time hearing looms. After 1,000 interviews, the hearings aim to highlight the committee’s strongest evidence. MSNBC’s Ari Melber is joined by former federal prosecutor John Flannery to discuss the significance of the public hearings and Donald Trump’s potential criminal culpability.

 

Will Trump Finally Be Held Liable for the Insurrection?

From the Mueller probe to two impeachment hearings, Donald Trump’s behavior has been publicly exposed time and time again. And to liberals’ dismay, he’s managed to avoid accountability every time. This week, the congressional Jan. 6 panel will hold its first live televised hearings on the insurrection. Could this time be different? Daniel Goldman, lead counsel in the first Trump impeachment, joins Mehdi to discuss.

 

 

Nixon’s Attorney General John Mitchell was Arrested & Convicted for the very same offense of Obstruction of Justice in 1977 and served 19 months in Prison. There’s no excuse for Merrick Garland’s DOJ failing to hold Trump accountable as well.

White House ethics attorney Richard Painter and Claire Finkelstein, a law professor at the University of Pennsylvania listed the following as potential crimes Trump committed;

(1) Obstructing justice as identified in the Mueller investigation.
(2) Bribing and/or extorting Ukraine with military aid to investigate his political opponent Joe Biden and conduct another investigation undermining the Mueller investigation.
(3) Coercing cabinet members and other federal employees to engage in partisan political activity in violation of the criminal political coercion provisions of the Hatch Act.
(4) Soliciting election fraud in a phone call to the Georgia Secretary of State in November 2020.
(5) Criminal sedition in authorizing preparation of the unsigned draft Executive Order dated December 16, 2020 pursuant to which President Trump would have ordered the Secretary of Defense to seize voting machines in certain states to look for evidence of election fraud.
(6) Inciting insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

These alleged politically-related crimes are over and above the financial crimes being investigated by the Manhattan DA, who has already indicted the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer.

In addition to the above crimes, numerous sources recently revealed that Trump destroyed & removed top secret documents from the White House, violating the Presidential Records Act.

The Department of Justice MUST charge, arrest and prosecute Trump for crimes he committed or it will prove there’s unequal Justice in the United States where some are above the law.

Trump inarguably committed multiple crimes. If Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Department of Justice fails to charge Trump, a de facto precedent will be set.

DOJ Must Prosecute Trump Or Else Nothing Matters Anymore

Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe has written a new op-ed calling for the US Department of Justice to prosecute Donald Trump. If this doesn’t happen, Tribe argues, the rule of law in the United States is effectively meaningless. He isn’t wrong, and the DOJ has an obligation to make sure that Trump is held accountable for his most egregious offenses

Description from YouTube; Andrew Weissmann, former lead prosecutor for Special Counsel Robert Mueller, talks about why it’s important that Donald Trump, as a citizen after he leaves office, face accountability for crimes he may have committed before he was elected as well as potential crimes while in office, like obstructing the special counsel’s investigation.

 

The number of crimes and offenses Trump committed while in office boggles the mind. Here’s just a few…

 

Trump is so LAWLESS and CORRUPT that according to reports, he tried to pressure the Department of Justice to declare the 2020 election was corrupted so he could stay in office AGAINST the will of the people.

 

Trump is so LAWLESS and CORRUPT that he pressured Georgia’s Republican secretary of state to “find more votes” to shift the count in his favor

 

Trump engaged in Sedition, Insurrection and Treason by inciting violence, chaos and rioting in Washington, DC to stop the certification of Joe Biden and overturn the election to make himself an UN-elected Dictator. Rioters stormed the House & Senate chambers, wrecking havoc, destruction and deaths at the United States Capital.

Trump blatantly violated the Constitution by spending funds not appropriated by Congress, accepting gifts from foreign governments, and using the power of his office to pressure at least one foreign government to do him political favors;

 

Trump obstructed justice, politicized the Department of Justice, used federal agents to provoke confrontations on our streets, and blocked congressional oversight over his administration.

Biden Admin MUST Prosecute Trump Administration Lawbreakers

Jesse discusses journalists and public intellectuals who think it is a good idea to forgive and forget the fascist collaborators of Donald Trump in the spirit of “taking the high road” or “for the good of the nation.”

The Biden administration MUST Prosecute Trump Administration Lawbreakers and their enablers. No “Let’s let bygones be bygones” or “It’s time to move on”!

 

Former Federal Prosecutor Glenn Kirschner explains how Failure to Prosecute could be a CRIME in  itself… violation of 18 U.S. Code § 3 “Accessory after the fact”.

“Whoever, knowing that an offense against the United States has been committed, receives, relieves, comforts or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment, is an accessory after the fact”.

 

 

 

 

We cannot repeat the mistakes of the Obama administration’s failure to hold accountable and Prosecute George W. Bush and those in his administration.

Per an article from Amnesty International, here’s a list of War Crimes which George W. Bush has yet to be held accountable;

amnesty.org/download/Documents/28000/amr510972011en.pdf

1. Acts of torture (and, it may be noted, other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment and enforced disappearance) were committed against detainees held in a secret detention and interrogation program operated by the USA’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) between 2002 and 2009.

2. The CIA established this secret program under the authorization of then-President George W. Bush.

3. Since leaving office, former President George W. Bush has said that he authorized the use of a number of “enhanced interrogation techniques” against detainees held in the secret CIA program. The former President specifically admitted to authorizing the “water-boarding” of identified individuals, whose subjection to this torture technique has been confirmed.

4. Additionally, torture and other ill-treatment, and secret detention, by US forces occurred outside the confines of the CIA-run secret detention program, including against detainees held in military custody at the US Naval Base at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba, and in the context of armed conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

5. George W. Bush was Commander in Chief of all US armed forces at the relevant times.

6. The Administration of George W. Bush acted on the basis that he was essentially unrestrained by international or US law in determining the USA’s response to the attacks in the USA on 11 September 2001. Among other things, President Bush decided that the protections of the Geneva Conventions of 1949, including their common article 3, would not be applied to Taleban or al-Qa’ida detainees.

7. George W. Bush, as Commander in Chief at the relevant times, if he did not directly order or authorize such crimes, at least knew, or had reason to know, that US forces were about to commit or were committing such crimes and did not take all necessary and reasonable measures in his power as Commander in Chief and President to prevent their commission or, if the crimes had already been committed, ensure that all those who were alleged to be responsible for these crimes were brought to justice.

8. The USA has failed to conduct investigations capable of reaching former President George W. Bush, and all indications are that it will not do so, at least in the near future.

9. The facts summarized above, which are matters of public record, are sufficient to give rise to a mandatory obligation under international law for any state that is party to the UN Convention against Torture, should former US President George W. Bush enter that state’s territory, to:
* launch a criminal investigation;
* arrest former President Bush or otherwise secure his presence during that investigation; and
* submit the case to its competent authorities for the purposes of prosecution if it does not extradite him to another state demonstrably able and willing to do so.

10. While there is some debate whether states that are not parties to the UN Convention against Torture have essentially the same obligations under customary international law, it is clear that such states have the power to exercise jurisdiction in such circumstances and, in Amnesty International’s submission, should do so.

11. Further, as some of the torture and other cruel inhuman or degrading treatment of detainees occurred in the context of armed conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, states to which former US President George W. Bush travels also have obligations under the 1949 Geneva Conventions and/or under customary international humanitarian law, essentially the same as those under the UN Convention against Torture.
