Trump should be stripped of presidency because Mueller filing shows he ‘procured it by fraud’: ex-US Attorney

Published

on

Americans should consider stripping Donald Trump of the office of the presidency after he “procured the presidency by fraud” a former US Attorney explained on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Saturday.

Former U.S. Attorneys Joyce Vance and Barbara McQuade joined guest host Jonathan Capehart to dissect a week of bombshell news from special counsel Robert Mueller and federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.

“I think one of the most important takeaways here actually is an extra-legal takeaway,” Vance explained. “It’s the notion — that as American citizens — a candidate lied to us during the campaign.”

“That has legal implications for the Mueller investigation, but the bottom line here is that all the time that Trump during the campaign was telling us he had no dealings in Russia, no business in Russia, he was actually sitting on top of a deal that was designed to bring in hundreds of millions of dollars according to filings that we’ve seen this week.”

“This is really shocking,” Vance added.

“This is a significant matter,” McQuade agreed.

“This is not just a regulatory offense when you talk about campaign finance violations. It could be that President Trump procured the presidency by fraud,” she noted.

“Democracy is all about giving full information to voters so they can cast a ballot for the candidate of their choice,” she reminded. “And by lying and covering up about his past on the eve of the election and violating the laws designed to create transparency, they say that President Trump clouded the process for the American voters.”

McQuade offered an analogy of how to think about the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency.

“When immigrants procure their citizenship by fraud, we strip them of their citizenship. When a president procures his presidency by fraud, should we consider doing the same?” she asked.

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."
