Bombshell report reveals Trump could be indicted under seal without his knowledge

Published

on

Berkeley, California attorney Alexander Stern, released a bombshell report on Friday that suggests President Donald Trump may be under a sealed indictment without even knowing.

The report gathered eight leading criminal law professors across the country. The Department of Justice has argued that indicting President Trump could distract him from his presidential duties, but Stern said a sealed indictment could take away that concern.

“The Department of Justice says prosecuting a sitting president can impermissibly distract him. However, indictments under seal, remove this fear,” Stern wrote in the report.

A sealed indictment could start the process under the radar, thus eliminating the potential distractions that a public indictment would create. If a sealed indictment takes place, President Trump would not face any consequences until after he leaves office.

“It just sets the process in motion formally. It empowers the courts to have authority over Mr.Trump, so that perhaps if Mr. Mueller is fired or otherwise leaves his post, the judicial branch will have jurisdiction and they are not beholden to Mr. Trump,” Stern told Raw Story.

A sealed indictment would remove the statute of limitation concern.

The University of Alabama School of Law’s Prof. Jenny Carroll, said:“One possibility would be that the indictment if sealed [could solve] the sol [statute of limitations] problem and the matter does [not] proceed until after the President leaves office.”

Stern noted that indicting a sitting president has never been investigated to this extent and called the Mueller probe the “investigation of the century.”

“No, absolutely not, on the flip side, we have never had a president like Donald Trump before,” Stern concluded.

2020 Election

Here’s how Trump hopes to recreate his 2016 presidential win — and how Democrats can send him packing

Published

on

Writing for CNN on Saturday, election forecaster Harry Enten explained how President Donald Trump's recent, racist behavior lies in his desire to recreate the same electoral conditions that gave him a victory in 2016 in the presidential election next year.

"The Trump strategy is pretty simple: 1. Drive up the unfavorable ratings of his Democratic rival as he did in 2016 in order to compensate for his own low ratings. 2. Bank on an electoral college/popular vote split as he did in 2016. 3. Use a campaign of racial resentment to drive up turnout even more among groups favorable toward the President," wrote Enten. As he noted, Democrats have excellent odds to flip back Michigan and Pennsylvania, but they will have to work harder to win back any of the other states Trump flipped from the 2012 Obama camp — in particular Wisconsin, which was the closest state after those two.

Conservative suggests Trump’s racist rhetoric will incite worse than ‘send her back’ chants: ‘One shudders to wonder’

Published

on

In a column for the Washington Post, conservative Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Kathleen Parker said the refusal by Republican lawmakers and the evangelical community to condemn Donald Trump's racist rhetoric is paving the way for something far worse than mere "send her back" chants.

Under a headline that bluntly states, "Those who don’t condemn Trump’s racism are complicit in his bigotry," Parker gets right to her opinion of the president, writing, "Going out on a limb here: President Trump is a racist. And a sexist. And a xenophobic nationalist. Among other things. Not to name call or anything."
