    Trump CAN Be Prosecuted For A Felony

    Former Bush Ethics Chief Says Trump Can Be Prosecuted For A Felony...

    According to former Bush White House ethics chief, and Democratic Senate candidate in Minnesota, Richard Painter, Donald Trump’s disclosure form lie about the payment to Stormy Daniels could and should be prosecuted as a felony.

    https://youtu.be/PdQslel-mxg

    On MSNBC’s The Beat With Ari Melber, Painter was asked, “Is it a problem if there was a failure to originally report this accurately by Donald Trump? ”

    Painter answered, “If he intentionally failed to report it. He covered it up, he lied, that’s a violation of the false statements statute, 18 United States code 1,001, that’s a criminal offense and can be prosecuted as a felony.”

    Melber followed up, “Are you saying just doing that about Stormy Daniels in this financial disclosure is actually something the DOJ could use?”

    Painter replied, “If he intentionally concealed the payment, yes, he could be prosecuted for that. This is one of many lies and crimes committed by this president. We have just seen evidence just this week of his being brought by the Chinese government. We have a very serious crisis in this country.”

    Being that Trump has spent months lying about the payment itself, it should not be difficult to prove that this was not an accidental oversight. Someone didn’t get the date wrong, It is an intentional cover-up. Trump and Michael Cohen were trying to keep the payment secret, which is why the laundered it through his law offices and potentially committed an act of fraud. Painter is correct. Trump could be prosecuted for a felony, and he should be prosecuted for a felony.

    The worst thing ever to happen to Donald Trump’s amoral criminal empire was winning the White House. Trump reached too far, and in the process to trying to get the ultimate big score has set himself and his entire operation up for their downfall.

    Indeed ... he has apparently forgotten that at some point, he will no longer be able to manipulate the DOJ and ongoing investigations.

    Richard Painter has been one of the bright lights in this dark time.
    Global warming denialists are like gravity denialists piloting a helicopter, determined to prove a point. We may not have time to actually persuade them of their mistake.

    Yes, that's probably true. One president tends to be a response to the last. Obama embodied hope, fairness, justice, lawfulness and due process, thoughtful action, a kind of cerebral intellectualism, respect for fellow citizens. Trump embodies the opposite of each trait.

    Back when Trump was running for the Office it looks like he will soon be running from, I often thought on how that an overwhelming majority of Trump's kind of supporter appeared to be seeing him as their possible revenge for what their so called Right had allowed - an "n" word in the White House.

    You well, know that had been their lament Obama's 8 years.

    And that their labels for him even now, are about that.

    But that and its condoning in all its manifestations, is what too often goes for "truth smacking" on the part of many within the so called Right - speak your vile inclinations towards anyone you perceive as different from you, and therefore less than you, and then rationalize it all with "Jesus was a truth smacker too."
