Trump claims absolute immunity. GOP roles over for him.

"Imagine Trump is going to be worse for this nation than you can imagine." Cc, November 2016
It's coming true with a vengeance, and it ain't over yet.

 

Donald Trump’s lawyers argue the former president has “absolute immunity” from legal charges related to the Capitol invasion, a defense Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe calls “a remarkable claim.” Prof. Tribe says Donald Trump answers to the American public, and that “one of the ways you answer to the people is by being held accountable for the damages that you do when you aim an angry mob at members of Congress.”

Trump Claims Immunity Against Jan. 6 Lawsuit Because His Efforts To Overturn Election Were Part Of His Presidential Duties

By Alison Durkee, May 25, 2021

Former President Donald Trump argued in a court filing late Monday that he cannot be sued by Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) for his alleged role in inciting the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol building because he was conducting official presidential business, in a continuation of past claims that the presidency rendered him “immune” from legal liability —which legal experts have partially rejected when it comes to criminal charges.

Swalwell is suing Trump and allies including Donald Trump Jr. and Rudy Giuliani over the Jan. 6 riot, alleging they violated the Ku Klux Klan Act through their claims of election fraud and attempts to block Congress from certifying the election results, particularly at a rally Trump spoke at that took place immediately before the Capitol was attacked.

I have a bad feeling that as long as his cronies and followers stay in office and maintain even a little power, the dotard will escape prosecution, unless the Dems get a backbone very soon and find a way to go after him and put him and his cronies, as well as some followers, in prison. I’m beginning to doubt the dems will get a backbone and everyone in Congress is hoping the U.S. citizens will forget what happened January 6.
