We Need To Talk About Trump’s Crimes

I have been blogging about Donald J. Trump for over four years now. In all that time I don’t recall discussing the crimes he has committed. A poll from last Spring showed that two-thirds of the people surveyed believed that Donald Trump had committed crimes before taking office, and nearly half of them think he has committed crimes since he became President. We cannot ignore this issue any longer. We need to talk about Trump’s crimes.

Does anybody know of any crimes Trump has committed?

Anybody?

Bueller?

Mueller?

Okay, finally! Jonathan Chait in the back row – whaddaya got?

Donald Trump is being impeached for using his office to pressure foreign countries to investigate his political rivals. It is not clear Trump understands that, because he simply continues committing this offense in broad daylight.

In remarks to reporters today, Trump was asked what he wants Ukraine to do about the Bidens. He replied, “If they were honest about it, they would start a major investigation into the Bidens.” While elaborating on his answer, he added that he would also suggest China launch an investigation of the Biden family.

Of course, the idea that any American citizens should be subject to the Chinese justice system is absurd. The only possible way Trump could desire such an investigation would be if he believes China would fix the outcome in order to win his favor. For that matter, Joe Biden’s actions in Ukraine under the Obama administration had gained bipartisan support at the time, as CNN finds, so there is simply no legitimate basis for an investigation of him. Trump wants a cooked investigation with a predetermined outcome to help him politically.

In one of his two private conversations with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump explicitly suggested his counterpart investigate Biden. “There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great,” he says. “Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it …”

(Incidentally, the Washington Post assembles numerous clues — ranging from odd markings, unusual use of ellipses, and a word count that fails to match up to the call’s allotted time, all of which strongly suggest the official White House “transcript” is heavily abridged. Still, even the publicly released text shows Trump explicitly asking Zelensky to investigate Biden.)

In public, Trump has framed his demand slightly less directly. When asked if he told Ukraine to investigate Biden, he responded by invoking “corruption.”

The “corruption” code is utterly transparent. Now he is dispensing with even that bare fig leaf and openly committing impeachable offenses on the White House lawn, and expanding the list to a second country while he’s at it. He even throws in a threat that China would be under “scrutiny” in the absence of such an investigation, as if nepotistic business deals would be a scandal or illegal in China:

Mmmkay, uh, Jonathan? You haven’t alleged any crimes here. No, pressuring foreign governments is not a crime. That’s called “diplomacy.” And there is a basis to investigate. If Don Trump Jr. was making $50K a month to sit on the board of Directors of Burisma, you know damn well you would be screaming for an investigation. And by the way, when Americans go to other countries, they make themselves subject to the laws of those countries.

Okay, who’s next? Chris Hayes, right in front.

Oops, my bad. Rachel Maddow, right here in front. Sorry about that, but I can’t tell you two apart. One of you should wear a dress so we can tell the difference. What? No, sweetie, that wasn’t sexist. Make him wear the dress, I don’t give a fuck. Do you have something on Trump?

Trump cheated on his taxes? Well, that how they got Capone. So what is your evidence? You don’t have any evidence because Trump won’t release his tax returns? He doesn’t have to release his tax returns. No, his refusal to release them does not prove he is guilty of anything. You got anything else, sweetie?

Okay, okay, take a chill pill. You’re right, I should not have called you sweetie. I apologize and promise I won’t ever do it again. Now, do you got anything else, bitch? I didn’t think so. Next? Don Lemon, go for it.

I’m gonna stop you right there. Trump is not a racist. No, that’s just your opinion, but even if it was true, it’s not illegal to be a racist. Well maybe it should be but it’s not. If we made racism illegal it would be a crime to hate white people too. No, no, no, Trump did not say that Nazis were good people. Read the fucking transcript. The UNEDITED transcript.

Okay, Jim Acosta, it’s your turn.

I’m sorry that your butt hurts, Jim, but it is not a crime to call you fake news. Defamation is a civil tort, but keep in mind that truth is a defense to libel and slander claims.

Meghan, you’re up.

Well, I’m sure you loved your daddy and think he was a really great guy, but there are millions of Americans who think he was a scumbag. I’m one of them, and I voted for him. How many of the people you work with can truthfully say that? How many of them were talking trash about your daddy in 2008? Hmmm?

Siddown Rosie, I didn’t invite you.

I got one last thing before I kick you all out. If you want to accuse Trump of a crime, you need to identify the statute or code you think he violated, and show EVIDENCE to show how he violated it. No hearsay, no speculation, no rumors. Build a case and present it. But until you have a case you need to STFU. Now GTFO and GFYS.

      when useful fools are no longer useful there is no need for them. the dem useful fools are losing their usefulness

    • Constance says:

      I’m not convinced, Dems are just trying to make it look like Antifa aren’t Democrat shock troops. There is a big difference between spreading litter and doing a little graffiti around the edges of an empty building and assaulting, yelling, doxing and throwing urine on conservative people.

    A little about Columbus Day, proclaimed a National Holiday in 1937 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

    Enjoy your holiday everyone.

    Sounds exciting, but it still won’t get me to watch.

  11. Dora says:

    He sounds like a mad man!

  12. Somebody says:

    Trump’s crime is beating Hillary, it was her turn damnit! He has since proceeded to interrupt the gravy trains AND he’s stopping the exporting of our jobs and wealth overseas, add to that he’s attempting to stop the flood of illegals. He’s also made us energy independent. Can’t you see how many pots he has stirred? My God are you blind? Orange man bad and he said grab them by the pussy!

    • Jentc says:

      And boom there it is and that is exactly why they’re mad they’re mad because the gravy train has stopped the easy road is not on no longer easy and the truth is being exposed. He wasn’t supposed to win their arrogance made them blind to the fact that we’re tired sick and tired of the same old shenanigans. This country is on the precipice and if you can’t see what’s looming ahead you are effing blind. It appears though that the old fable about the emperor’s clothes is true and most humans would rather be right than correct and they would rather walk into a burning pit of Hell then admit that they’ve been lazy and silly and stupid and stupid and stupid. The only people that hate Trump are the bad people and the people who whose arrogance makes them blind to the truth. All of these people are a threat to America and her way of life. It is us who should be attacking not antifa and soon it might be. Wake up America wake up before it is too late

      Anthony Brian Logan

      Fake news. I was there. Nobody saw this video except for a handful of people, mostly the New York Times and their mole at the event. It did not get played on the main stage and we literally had a panel at the event CONDEMNING political violence.

      Sadly, I was a Joe supporter in 2004 before that hawtie John Edwards jumped in. I remember Joe did a LGBT rally, only 6 showed up. Cspan covered it for 2 hours. I felt bad for him, and Cspan.

      • michelina says:

        john Edwards was my first choice, not Hillary, also———I thought he was a decent man, but unfortunately his small brain got the best of him——what a loser he turned out to be, just leave or get divorced, don’t disgrace yourself and your family DICK head, (yeah that’s the SMALL brain I was referring to—Dick HEAD)

    they kicked Gaetz out of the hearing.
    NO REPUBLICANS NEED ATTEND? Isn’t that like the old NO IRISH NEED APPLY HELP WANTED SIGNS?

    • lateblum says:

      I thought they said republicans were not permitted to attend these meetings/inquisitions. Did I misunderstand?

      • Somebody says:

        When Volker testified Jordan, Zeldin, Gaetz, Meadows and one other guy that didn’t talk took turns sitting in so the republicans at least knew what was going on. Thank goodness for this small group, they appear to be POTUS’s only defenders in Congress.

        Following Volker’s testimony Schiff released some, but not all texts, to put POTUS in the worst possible light. Volker was specifically asked about the texts and refuted Schiff’s narrative.

        The republicans held a press conference and each of them spread out for interviews including the Sunday shows to counter the democrat narrative. That eventually also led to Volker releasing his written opening statement countering the democrats.

        Clearly that small group was effective, hence being banned by Schiff. It was one sided before, only democrats and democrat lawyers asking questions. The republicans could only observe, but even that little bit of “fairness” was just too much for these totalitarian jackasses.

        • lateblum says:

          Thanks, Somebody. I have been so sick since getting my flu shot last week on
          Sunday, that I haven’t really kept current on anything. I can hardly concentrate due to all the symptoms I’ve been having. Here’s a real life warning… if you don’t feel well, Don’t get the flu shot until you’re feeling better. It’s been horrid.
