As the 2020 election continues to loom on the horizon, there are no shortage of democrats going out of their way to disparage Donald Trump.
This tactic was inevitable in the same way that President Trump’s nomination for reelection is inevitable. (Sorry, Bill Weld and Justin Amash). We saw this coming from miles away, and with Joe Biden’s campaign framing the primaries as essentially decided, it was only a matter of time before the rest of the field began their own assaults on the White House.
This political war has been wholly exhausting for the American people, yet there is no end in sight.
Much of the longevity of this argument can be attributed to the release of the Mueller report – a document that many democrats have declared a “roadmap to impeachment”. The only problem is that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been egregiously stubborn in her opposition to the idea, irking the younger, more progressive base of the party.
On the campaign trail, however, a new roadmap is appearing; one that would see President Trump prosecuted after he leaves office. Leading the charge on this new from is Kamala Harris, insisting that the Department of Justice will simply have no choice in the matter.
California Sen. Kamala Harris says that if she’s elected president, her administration’s Department of Justice would likely pursue criminal obstruction of justice charges against a former President Donald Trump.
“I believe that they would have no choice and that they should, yes,” Harris told theNPR Politics Podcast, pointing to the 10 instances of possible obstruction that former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report detailed without making a determination as to whether the episodes amounted to criminal conduct.
“There has to be accountability,” Harris added. “I mean look, people might, you know, question why I became a prosecutor. Well, I’ll tell you one of the reasons — I believe there should be accountability. Everyone should be held accountable, and the president is not above the law.”
Harris went on to enforce the democratically-held belief that Robert Mueller chose not to prosecute the President based solely on legal precedent.
Attorney General Bill Barr has refuted that claim on several occasions.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
