The legal experts are weighing in, and all agree that Donald Trump is indictment bound. Yeah, we’ve heard it before, right? These experts give compelling reasons why we should listen to them this time. First is the pending case against Trump in Georgia as published by RawStory.
Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman told RawStory that he “has no doubt” that the case in Georgia will be “ironclad.” Akerman believes that Trump will not only be indicted but that he will be convicted. Talking with Katie Phang of MSNBC, Akerman called the evidence in Georgia “overwhelming” all because Trump couldn’t keep his nose out of the 2020 election and called Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, imploring him to “find” enough votes to give Trump the victory in Georgia. Akerman believes that the phone call is enough to “send Donald Trump to prison.” Akerman elaborated: “If you are asking which of the cases right now, which one is going to send Donald Trump to prison, that is the case. There is a really neat three-year felony in Georgia that Donald Trump has violated.” Not only that, but Raffensperger’s office taped the conversation, and that tape speaks for itself and cannot be refuted. Trump blatantly asked the secretary of state to violate the law by “finding” additional votes. He didn’t ask him to do a recount, an audit, or any other legal means by which votes may be thrown out, but he wanted him to “find” votes. This is like JJ on Good Times who used to “find” things instead of admitting to stealing them. This evidence, when taken together with what the House Select Committee has revealed, is painting an ugly picture for Donald Trump.
Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor, also appeared with Katie Phang. Kirschner believes that the committee has found enough evidence for Trump to be charged with treason. Kirschner uses the reasoning that Trump “declared war on the U.S.” in his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Kirschner points to specific actions by Donald Trump that point to treason. He gave orders to the Proud Boys to “stand down and stand by,” which was a clear directive. He predicted that his rally on the day of the insurrection would “be wild.” Kirschner explained: “He deployed them, and he gave the order: ‘Go to the Capitol, fight like hell or you won’t have a country anymore.'” Of course, he claimed that he meant nothing specific by those words, but those words were just as deadly as shouting “fire” in a crowded theater, which as we all know is against the law. What Trump did should be considered as such, as it did no less damage. People were injured and some killed, including one of the rioters, and the blame belongs to Donald Trump. He can deny and obfuscate all he wants, but that changes nothing. He set everything in motion that day, he carried out his plans despite numerous warnings, and the worst that could have happened did. He bears the blame, and he should be charged accordingly.
