We Have A Constitutional Crisis: ‘Traitor’ Kevin McCarthy And MAGA Fascists To Interfere in Ongoing Criminal investigation

Update to Donald Trump Incites His MAGA Thugs To Riot (Again) When He Is Arrested In New York.

We are officially in a constitutional crisis due to MAGA Fascsists obstructing justice to protect their “Dear Leader” from prosecution.

“Traitor” Kevin McCarthy, who led 147 Republican lawmakers who still objected to the election results even after the Capitol attack, giving aid and comfort to the violent MAGA insurrectionists, has ordered a probe of district attorney investigating Trump:

House Speaker “Traitor” Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Saturday announced a congressional investigation into the local prosecutors reportedly preparing to indict former President Trump.

Intimidation of law enforcement, and interference in an ongoing criminal investigation. The GQP is an ongoing crime spree.

Trump said in a Truth Social post on Saturday he expects to be arrested on Tuesday as part of a Manhattan District Attorney investigation into hush money payments he allegedly made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

[Trump’s lap dog] McCarthy accused Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg of “an outrageous abuse of power” and of “pursu[ing] political vengeance against President Trump” in a tweet posted Saturday morning.

“I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions,” McCarthy said.

Subvert our democracy“? Motherfucker, you and your MAGA Fascists have been subverting our democracy since the November 2020 election. Each and every one of you criminals needs to be prosecuted for your roles in the January 6 insurrection, and your efforts to impede and obstruct justice for your crimes ever since.

Leading GQP [MAGA Fascists] in the House, including Reps. Chip Roy (R-Texas) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), signaled support for the probe.

“[McCarthy] is right, and I fully support his call for an investigation,” tweeted Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.). “No federal dollars should be used to prop up this radical, Soros-backed [MAGA Fascist anti-semitism] activist attorney or his gross political attacks.”

Intimidation of law enforcement, and interference in an ongoing criminal investigation is the very definition of a “gross political attack,” you traitorous POS.

The new probe would fit into a network of investigations House Republicans are pursuing against other government bodies who they’ve accused of “weaponizing” federal resources to target conservatives [MAGA insurrectionists].

Spokespeople for the House Oversight Committee and the Judiciary Committee, which have led most of the probes, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Democratic lawmakers quickly accused McCarthy of his own abuse of power by using the federal government to crack down on local law enforcement.

Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D-V.I.), the ranking member of the Judiciary’s “weaponization” subcommittee, said McCarthy is trying to “weaponize Congress to interfere in the rule of law and use committees to re-elect the twice impeached former president.

“Speaker of the House of Representatives who has no idea what evidence the state DA has in support of grand jury indictment seeks to ‘weaponize’ the federal government to undermine the rule of law for political purposes,” tweeted Rep. Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.), another member of the panel.

  1. Coup Plotter co-conspirator, insurrectionist “Gym” Jordan (R-OH), “11 House Republicans attended a White House meeting with Trump to strategize about overturning the election results on January 6. Six of them later asked for pardons.”, https://www.businessinsider.com/house-republicans-white-house-meeting-december-21-2020-election-2022-7

    Is now openly declaring that he intends to interfere in an ongoing criminal investigation and to obstruct justice, “Jim Jordan waging ‘purely political attack’: Demands Bragg testify before Congress over expected Trump indictment”, https://www.rawstory.com/jim-jordan-waging-purely-political-demands-bragg-testify-before-congress-over-expected-trump-indictment/

    In an unprecedented move House Republican Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan is demanding Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg testify before Congress over his expected indictment of Donald Trump. Bragg, officially the New York County District Attorney, is an elected official whose office was created under the New York State Constitution and does not answer to Congress.

    In Jordan’s letter, he writes to Bragg: “In light of the serious consequences of your actions, we expect that you will testify about what plainly appears to be a politically motivated prosecutorial decision,” according to a Fox Corp. article. The website also says it was signed by two other Republicans: House Oversight Committee Chair Jim Comer and House Committee on Administration Chair Brian Steil. None have any oversight authority on the Office of the Manhattan District Attorney.

    “Jordan warned Bragg that if news reports of a possible Trump indictment are accurate, Bragg’s actions ‘will erode confidence in the evenhanded application of justice and unalterably interfere in the court of the 2024 presidential election,'” Fox adds.

    “The legal theory underlying your reported prosecution appears to be tenuous and untested,” Jordan wrote. He also attacked former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who has testified extensively in the case before the grand jury.

    [Jordan falsely describes Trump’s hush money payment to adult film actress and director Stormy Daniels as “some alleged bookkeeping error.”]

    Professor of law and former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance quickly blasted Jordan’s move, saying: “what jurisdiction does Congress have over a DA elected by Manhattanites? Sure, Jordan will talk about fed’l funding, but this is a purely political attack on local gov’t.”

    Earlier Monday, reacting to Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s remarks, Vance said: “It’s not up to House Republicans to review Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s conduct. It’s up to Manhattan voters. If Trump is indicted, a jury will decide whether there’s sufficient evidence to convict. The GOP continues to undercut our democratic institutions to serve Trump.”

    According to former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson who testified publicly and privately before the U.S. House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack, Jordan discussed pardons with the White House for Republican Members of Congress, although she says he did not ask for one himself. Jordan also defied a subpoena from the January 6 Select Committee.

    -This POS traitor needs to be indicted and prosecuted along with the other 10 congressional Coup Plotter co-conspirators behind the January 6 insurrection. No more delays or fucking around at the DOJ. Just do it!

    • “Republicans are ‘obstructing justice’ and ‘becoming accessories’ to Trump’s ‘crimes’: ex-prosecutor”, https://www.rawstory.com/republicans-are-obstructing-justice-and-becoming-accessories-to-trumps-crimes-ex-prosecutor-2659624769/

      At least two former federal prosecutors are blasting [congressional Republicans], with one saying it is “illegal” to interfere with an ongoing criminal investigation, and another warning Republicans are engaging in obstruction of justice and are becoming “accessories after the fact.”

      [On] Monday, a former federal prosecutor for 30 years, Glenn Kirschner, issued a warning for Republicans.

      In a very real sense, congressional Republicans who use their power & their office to thwart criminal prosecutions of Donald Trump are becoming accessories after the fact to Trump’s crimes. They are obstructing justice. And we can expect [it] to continue if it goes unaddressed.”

      Kirschner was responding to this tweet from noted Harvard professor of law (retired) Laurence Tribe: “House Republicans are gathered at a luxury resort near Disney World where House Judiciary Chair JIM JORDAN (R-Ohio) & senior GOP leaders are preparing to demand testimony from members of Manhattan DA’s Office amid reports of an imminent Trump indictment.”

      Monday afternoon Jordan and his colleagues did just that, sending a letter to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, demanding he hand over communications and testify before Congress to explain his prosecution of Trump.

      “Was the Manhattan DA’s office in communication with DOJ about their investigation of President Trump?” Jordan tweeted. “Was the Manhattan DA’s office using federal funds to investigate President Trump? Alvin Bragg owes our committee answers.”

      In response, U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), an attorney and former military prosecutor with the U.S. Air Force Judge Advocate General’s Corps, called Jordan’s actions “illegal.”

      “Dear @Jim_Jordan,” Lieu tweeted. “Local prosecutors, including DA Bragg, owe you nothing. In fact, it is illegal for you and @JudiciaryGOP to interfere in an ongoing criminal investigation, or a criminal trial (if there is one).”

  2. I will reiterate what I have said many times before. The Party of Trump is a criminal enterprise led by a third-rate mafia “Don” Trump. They are all accomplices, coconspirators and accessories who aid and abet his criminality and corruption. There is not a patriot among them. They put fealty to their “Dear Leader” above all else, including loyalty to their country and our national security, and their oaths of office to defend the Constitution. They reject the rule of law and are amoral. It is a betrayal of the faith of the American people in our constitutional government. They must all be held accountable.

    HuffPost reports, “Some Trump Rivals Rally To His Side As Possible Charges Loom”, https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-rivals-rally-to-his-side-as-possible-charges-loom_n_6416180ce4b01ea5cd8e7e8a

    Top Republicans, including some of Donald Trump’s potential rivals for the GOP’s 2024 presidential nomination, rushed to his defense Saturday after Trump said he is bracing for possible arrest.

    Among those coming to Trump’s side were House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who said he would direct relevant GOP-led House committees “to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions.” McCarthy has not endorsed Trump’s White House campaign, but Trump helped McCarthy secure the speakership after a contentious, multiple rounds of voting.

    [A]ny potential violence spurred by Trump’s comments could change the tenor of reaction. But on Saturday, several of Trump’s declared and potential rivals were quick to blast the district attorney’s investigation.

    “Well, like many Americans, I’m just, I’m taken aback,” said former Vice President [and Trump enabler] Mike Pence, who is widely expected to enter the race in the coming weeks and has been escalating his criticism of Trump.

    In an interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News, he said the inquiry “reeks of the kind of political prosecution that we endured back in the days of the Russia hoax and the whole impeachment over a phone call. And the one thing I know is, I know that former President Trump can take care of himself.”

    Pence had been noncommittal when asked Thursday if Trump should drop out if he is indicted. “I think it’s a free country. Everybody can make their own decisions,” he said.

    [N]ew York Rep. Elise Stefanik, the third-ranking House Republican and an early Trump endorser, said action by the district attorney would be “unAmerican.”

    “Knowing they cannot beat President Trump at the ballot box, the Radial Left will now follow the lead of Socialist dictators and reportedly arrest President Trump, the leading Republican candidate for President of the United States,” she said in a statement, echoing Trump’s language.

    Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance, who won his race in 2022 with Trump’s endorsement, said he had been asked by multiple reporters if an indictment would lead him to rescind support for Trump.

    “The answer is: hell no. A politically motivated prosecution makes the argument for Trump stronger,” he tweeted. “We simply don’t have a real country if justice depends on politics.”

    [S]en. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a longtime [Trump sycophant] said “The prosecutor in New York has done more to help Donald Trump get elected,” Graham said Saturday at the Vision ’24 conference in North Charleston, South Carolina. “They’re doing this because they’re afraid of Donald Trump.

    Representatives for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, another potential candidate who is seen as Trump’s most serious rival, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
