House Dem Proposes Commission To Investigate Trump After He Leaves Office

Democrats are giddy over their prospects of retaking the White House in November but even if the unthinkable happens, the persecution of President Trump will continue.
In another sign of how fascistic that the current incarnation of what was once a sane albeit wrongheaded political party, one of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's top House lieutenants is calling for the creation of a new commission to investigate Trump after he leaves office.
This brainstorm comes courtesy of California Rep. Eric Swalwell who on Friday tweeted that "America needs a Presidential Crimes Commission" that will be established solely to pursue Trump while ignoring the criminality of Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
Not only Swalwell's idea a harrowing glimpse into the mind of an authoritarian leftist but it should also conjure images of the old Soviet Union under the murderous dictator Joseph Stalin who seems to be an inspirational figure to today's Democrats.
A House Democrat on Friday proposed the creation of a Presidential Crimes Commission, a panel that would investigate allegations against President Trump and his administration after he leaves office.
"I don’t say this lightly: when we escape this Trump hell, America needs a Presidential Crimes Commission. It should be made up of independent prosecutors who look at those who enabled a corrupt president. Example 1: Sabotaging the mail to win an election. #SaveThePostOffice," U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., tweeted.
Swalwell’s tweet follows a recent statement by President Trump that he would actively prevent Democrats from being able to fund the U.S. Postal Service in order to prevent mail-in voting.
The Postal Service further announced Friday that voters in 46 states were at risk of being unable to receive their mail-in ballots in time for the Nov. 3 presidential election – largely because of funding issues.
The Postal Service sent letters to 46 states and the District of Columbia, warning that state deadlines for requesting, receiving and returning mail-in ballots may not realistic for the Postal Service to meet.
Tens of millions of Americans are expected submit their votes by mail-in ballot, not only because it is customary for many, but increasingly because of concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. Individuals most at risk, for example, such as the elderly or those with pre-existing medical conditions, may prefer a mail-in ballot rather than travel to an in-person polling station.
The letters to the states explicitly warn that even if voters meet the state deadlines, their votes may not be counted because of potential mishaps or logistical issues at the Postal Service.
Swalwell's tweet comes as his party and the media are cultivating their latest conspiracy theory that Trump's opposition to their plot to steal the election through vote by mail is actually the president's own plan to "sabotage" the mail despite a plethora of recent stories detailing the USPS's inability to carry out a national mail-in vote effort.
The rabidly totalitarian Swalwell has also called for the prosecution of law-abiding citizens who didn't surrender their guns after a confiscation order was given.
The following is excerpted from Swalwell’s 2018 USA Today op-ed entitled “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters: Ex-prosecutor in Congress”:
Reinstating the federal assault weapons ban that was in effect from 1994 to 2004 would prohibit manufacture and sales, but it would not affect weapons already possessed. This would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.
Instead, we should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons. The ban would not apply to law enforcement agencies or shooting clubs.
There’s something new and different about the surviving Parkland high schoolers’ demands. They dismiss the moral equivalence we’ve made for far too long regarding the Second Amendment. I’ve been guilty of it myself, telling constituents and reporters that “we can protect the Second Amendment and protect lives.”
The Parkland teens have taught us there is no right more important than every student’s right to come home after class. The right to live is supreme over any other.
More proof than inside every liberal that there is a fascist screaming to get out.
