Is Donald Trump facing impeachment and indictment for illegal campaign contributions?

December 9, 2018

  This might be the understatement of the year but Friday was not a good day for the President despite the spin his supporters tried to put on it. On Friday it was revealed that Donald Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, admitted that candidate Trump directed  hush money payments to be made to a couple of his alleged mistresses.

  Democrats (who did not care when Barack Obama was fined for violating campaign finance laws to the tune of nearly $2 million but watched gleefully as Dinesh D’Souza admitted to violating laws and was sent to jail) were quick to pounce on this news, claiming the President could be both indicted or impeached.

  Here is more:

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Sunday said that President Trump might “face the real prospect of jail time” after prosecutors indicated last week that he directed illegal payments during his 2016 presidential campaign.

“There’s a very real prospect that on the day Donald Trump leaves office, the Justice Department may indict him. That he may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Schiff’s comments come after federal prosecutors said in a legal filing Friday that referred to Trump as “Individual-1” that Trump during the 2016 campaign directed his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to make illegal payments to two women claiming they had affairs with Trump. It was the first time prosecutors made those accusations against Trump.

  Meanwhile, other Democrats were looking a little less into the future and were talking about impeachment, here is more on that:

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Sunday that it would “certainly” be an impeachable offense if it’s proven that President Trump directed illegal payments during his campaign.

“They would be impeachable offenses. Whether they are important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question, but certainly they’d be impeachable offenses because even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

  Representative Nadler said it would have to be determined if this impeachable offence is worthy of pursuing impeachment. That seems like an odd statement to make if he truly believes this would be an impeachable offense after the Democrats have been threatening impeachment over much less. I also do not believe the Democrats would wait for proof before moving on impeachment, we have seen that in today’s America a person is guilty until proven innocent and there is no reason to think it will be different in this case.

  If I had to bet I would say the House of Representatives is going to impeach the President, however I see no way the Republican controlled Senate will vote to remove him from office so that means the Democrats will have to wait until he is out of office and then hope “justice” is served with an indictment and conviction. And with this being the news New York has been waiting for I expect the liberal state to move on it as soon as possible.

    More ‘projection’?
    “President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for campaign reporting violations — one of the largest fees ever levied against a presidential campaign, POLITICO has learned.”
    The “projectionist” might get ‘strung up’ before they can do anything … or even after. The “yellow jacket” fad might takeover worldwide – out with the ungodly globalist.

    With no opposition party the dem’s have had and will continue to have in the foreseeable future free reign in determining right and wrong, good and bad, guilt and innocence and with the “free press” in their hip pocket broadcasting their venomous version of reality to a gullible america is a piece of cake.

      In the end they are all part of the ruling class and as the ruled we are considered their opposition and they prove it more and more every day.

    This will never end for Trump. They will do their best to insure he is not a viable candidate in 2020.

      Their def of ‘viable’ differs from ours – the lie to them is ‘truth’ and Truth repulsive to them and called ‘a lie.’

        To them truth is subjective, it brings us back to Pilate and quid est veritas.

        Ha, Mr. Latin hee hee.
        Good example, the personification of Truth stood right before him but Pilate ‘couldn’t see’ it – or ‘him’.
        I first read ‘subjective’ as ‘substance’ (need new glasses :), but it goes w/ this too: Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
        All of the world (systems) runs on ‘faith’ (and laws), and either it’s based on ‘truth’ or their ‘lies’. We’re ‘seeing’ its been more lies, and has been going on for some time.
        Jesus was the manifestation of the Law as well – and the fulfilling of it.

      That is the goal Bunkerville, if they cannot get him out of office before 2010 they will damage him to the point where he will be easily defeated. And maybe he even walks away on his own at the end of his term.
