The Left wants to destroy American freedoms in order to take unjustifiable revenge on Trump.
The crime they’re accusing Trump of is utterly preposterous.
Democrats are scheming to put Donald Trump in jail for this serious crime.
MSNBC legal analyst Barbara McQuade put forward the idea on Monday’s “Deadline” that former President Donald Trump could be charged with manslaughter for his role in the January 6 Capitol riot.
Discussing Liz Cheney’s comments about Trump, Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “Let me ask you, I think what they’re saying is that even if you were that deluded, quote, ‘You may not send an armed mob to the Capitol or sit for 87 minutes and refuse to stop the attack. You may not send out a tweet that incites further violence.’ It sounds like around the violence. She’s looking at what the committee talks about as dereliction of duty. Is that a specific crime you can charge someone with, Barbara?”
McQuade replied, “It’s not a federal offense, but there actually is an interesting legal theory here for manslaughter, which Federal law defines as a death that occurs on federal property when a person acts with a recklessness mindset or even gross negligence. And so Donald Trump, unlike most ordinary citizens, has not only a duty not to do something bad, but an affirmative duty to take action to protect people. I think you could possibly put together a theory based on the facts that Liz Cheney just described to make Donald Trump responsible for the deaths that occurred that day.”
The idea of charging Trump with manslaughter is insane on many different levels.
Two Trump supporters died of heart attacks, one of a drug overdose, Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes and the unarmed Ashli Babbitt died after being shot in the shoulder by a Capitol Police officer.
U.S. Capitol Police said an internal investigation also cleared the officer who shot Babbitt of any wrongdoing.
The Justice Department found, “Specifically, the investigation revealed no evidence to establish that, at the time the officer fired a single shot at Ms. Babbitt, the officer did not reasonably believe that it was necessary to do so in self-defense or in defense of the Members of Congress and others evacuating the House Chamber. Acknowledging the tragic loss of life and offering condolences to Ms. Babbitt’s family, the U.S. Attorney’s Office and U.S. Department of Justice have therefore closed the investigation into this matter.”
Is McQuade going to try and claim that the officer who shot Babbitt acted correctly but that Trump should be charged for manslaughter for her death or does she think that Trump should be held responsible for the stress that triggered the heart attacks?
If Trump was held responsible for causing heart attacks freedom of speech would be dead but Democrats are so obsessed with gaining temporary power that they’re willing to sacrifice fundamental American ideals in order to silence their political opponents.
