It takes two things to make a vote tally. One is a machine that records and tallies a vote properly. We are told that the machines were not hackable, or not hacked. Seeing as the GOP seems to stop at nothing, including voter suppression, I have my doubts about that. But even if we accept that as a 100% fact, there is still another essential part of the vote process equation that is hackable – and that is the actual voter’s will. Fake news, hacks – all affect a person’s perception of a candidate.
This season, it seems that the media made all claims fair game, false, sensational, and true – as they sought higher ratings, and got them. That may be deemed all well and good as free speech, as long as the news and claims come from the US and its citizens. But what if the news and claims come from a foreign entity?
For that circumstance, it is not free speech! There is the Espionage Act which was created in 1918 and is still on the books. The act makes it a serious crime for foreign entities (countries, corporations and non-US citizens) to do or plan harm to the US. Further, any US citizen who works with a foreign entity to do plan to do harm to the US, is also guilty of espionage. And that makes Donald Trump guilty of espionage by his own words alone.
When he said on July 27th, “Russia, if you are listening, I hope you find the 30,000 emails” this was an invitation to hack the electoral process and the minds of our voters. The fact that the Russians did hack, only makes the crime worse. But even if they did not, an invitation to hack is itself a crime – and it should be, right?
If we don’t insist on that this was a crime, are we not saying it is ok if this happens again? That’s why Trump downplays the hack., of course. And if we deem this a crime, as we should and as it is, then Donald Trump is either guilty of espionage or at the least, suspected in complicity in an international espionage scam to win the presidency. We now also have proof the DT’s son Eric, net with the Russians 4 weeks before the election. We have plenty of probable cause here. It’s not just the Russians that should be investigated. We need to investigate the person that appears to have benefited here in the US.
The fact the Trump did not hack himself is not important. If someone hires a hit man to murder a spouse to collect insurance, we indict the both the murderer and the hirer, right?
Trump should be allowed to get away with this. To use his line, what have we got to lose by indicting him in his home state NY, for crimes against the electoral process? What is the worst that can really happen? It’s going to be terribly bad for Americans and the Democratic Party anyway. I don’t think it could be worse. And we may even find that the GOP starts wanting Trump to go too. They get Pence/Ryan. We are all better off. They may just breathe a sigh of relief. They should.
If we indict Trump under the Espionage Act, we get discovery by a prosecuting attorney – including access to his taxes for trails to Russia, which have been there or 30 years, since his casino cash business days. He was a known tax evader. Putin has dirt on him if he put funds in Russia. He must be Putin’s patsy now. He is essentially, unwittingly blackmailed by the dirt of his past. I believe that if we get access to his taxes, he will ask to step down as long as he does not have to show his taxes. His draft dodger mentality still applies.
And then our nightmare is over. We’d get Pence I guess. We might have to surrender that. What really should happen if a criminal runs for president and we find out before he takes office? It’s a good question.
If it’s Pence/Ryan, the GOP will likely soon botch everything, like they always do, owing to their greed and general lack of care they have for average Americans. We’ll storm back in 2018 with Bernie or someone new (not Hillary, let’s be smart) at the helm.
This is easy folks. We have enough actual and circumstantial evidence to make an indictment; his own words, his son’s meetings, his cabinet picks. With an indictment, we can subpoena his tax and phone records too, and then it’s really done. Whoever does this will be heralded as the man or woman who saved America. Even most of his own supporters don’t like what they are hearing right now.
This must happen this week. Plenty of time. He won this in the last week, and he still can lose it, mainly because he is a sick man, and has been a criminal on many levels, for over 30 years.
There are plenty of high ranking Democrats with DA’s, including Schumer and Loretta Lynch, that can make this happen this week. The public is used to surprises. Let’s have one more. Let’s stand up for what is right. We have the law on our side. What are we waiting for? Wake up Democrats! You are about to lose everything we have worked for 150 years. Indict Donald Trump for complicity in espionage today.
Finally, for those who say that the hack did not affect the election’s results – I think they are way off base or just afraid to say what they really think. Yes, they did not hack the machines. But if they affected the mind’s of voters, and that we have plenty of evidence of, then yes – the Russians affected our election’s results. This is the way Putin is taking over the world today. He’s doing it everywhere. The only way to make sure that he does not continue to do this in the USA is not “sanctions”. Too wussy and does nothing to undo his victory. We have to indict the man he put in. Get it? Putin / put in. That’s what he is doing everywhere. Not here please.
