Trump’s use of his office to attempt to overturn his electoral defeat has many constitutional lawyers calling for his prosecution

Recommended Posts

How likely is it that Trump will face criminal prosecution after leaving office?

In the final days of his presidency, Donald Trump may have exposed himself to a criminal prosecution after he leaves the White House.

First he repeatedly pressured a state official to “find” enough votes to overturn his defeat in Georgia in the 2020 election. Then he incited a violent pro-Trump mob Wednesday to storm and ransack the U.S. Capitol in an unsuccessful attempt to prevent Congress’ counting of electoral votes confirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. Five people died in the rioting, including one Capitol Police officer.

Even after repeatedly pushing the limits of presidential power and surviving an impeachment, his last-ditch bid to hold on to power through intimidation and insurrection has dramatically increased the odds he will face a criminal investigation and possibly the first-ever prosecution of an ex-president.

Legal experts say only a criminal prosecution could hold Trump fully accountable for his actions.

Until this month, many lawyers who were highly critical of Trump were nevertheless opposed to prosecuting him for actions he had taken up to that point in his tenure, such as allegations he obstructed justice in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. They feared such charges would be seen by many as partisan and politically divisive.

But Trump’s use of his office to attempt to overturn his electoral defeat crossed the line for many.

“We have a long history, developed most recently from the aftermath of the Nixon administration, of keeping politics separate from federal law enforcement and not using the power of the federal government to investigate and punish one’s political opponents. That norm needs to be taken seriously,” said Elizabeth Wydra, president of the Constitutional Accountability Center, a progressive legal group in Washington.

“But Trump’s lawlessness is so blatant, and so threatening to our constitutional democracy, that letting him escape accountability could be even worse for the country.”

LOL.  Good luck with that wet dream/fantasy.  Not happening, but be sure to waste plenty of time, effort and money on it.  Please do.

There we go. Meat is a full blown Leftist now, judge him by the articles he posts and not what he says he is.

You may have a point.  I thought it was mainly just the TDS.

These people are so frightened by the mere existence of Trump that it is downright comical and disturbing.

My question is - If they were so confident Biden won then why does Trump need to be removed immediately and why didn't they consent to forensic auditing of the election?

Because they said there was no evidence.

Don't you know that what they say goes. :classic_biggrin:

Major unanswered questions.  They don't like to go there at all.

No answer to that question?? That's what the rioters were chanting as they stormed the US Capitol
