One Democrat went on national TV to threaten Trump with jail time
Democrats are finally getting their chance to fight back against Trump.
Pelosi said that impeaching Trump was not on the top of her agenda.
But that was proven to be a lie after one Democrat made this threat to put Trump in jail.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) will take over the House Judiciary Committee next month and plans to launch several legal attacks against the administration.
He went on CBS’s “Face the Nation” show to threaten President Trump with the prospect of jail time.
Fox News reports:
The top Democrat expected to lead the House Judiciary Committee next month claimed on Sunday that if President Trump broke campaign finance laws by arranging hush-money payments to mistresses, he would have committed “impeachable offenses … in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office.”
The House Judiciary Committee initiates impeachment proceedings before they head to a full floor vote.
Meanwhile, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that “there’s a very real prospect that on the day Donald Trump leaves office, the Justice Department may indict him. … he may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time.”
But legal experts were split on the significance of the plea for Trump, because campaign finance laws are notoriously murky, and Cohen’s plea does not necessarily indicate that prosecutors could have successfully prosecuted a campaign finance case against Cohen or Trump.
Democrats are salivating at the opportunity to kick President Trump out of the White House.
And throwing him in jail would be the icing on the cake.
The Democrats will have a majority in the House, but that does not mean everyone would vote for impeachment.
The grounds for impeachment are weak at best.
Campaign finance laws do not indicate a cut and dry violation of the law.
Democrats from Nancy Pelosi to Adam Schiff and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will do everything in their power to take him down.
But their attempts are just be more theatrics to block Trump’s America First agenda.
