CNN has a nifty piece out about the legal reckoning awaiting Donald Trump, should he lose the election.

Buried in the article (which is worth a read) is this nugget:

Some have suggested a formal apparatus for investigating Trump after he leaves office. Rep. Eric Swalwell, a California Democrat, has floated the creation of a

“Presidential Crimes Commission,” made up of independent prosecutors who can examine “those who enabled a corrupt president,” as he put it in an August tweet. “Example 1: Sabotaging the mail to win an election.”

Swalwell tweeted about this in mid-August.

Nobody knew how much worse it could get in two short months.

You know, like Trump calling on the USAG to “arrest and sentence” Biden and Obama.

Here is more about Swalwell, in a Newsweek piece from August

Rep. Eric Swalwell has called for the creation of a presidential crimes commission to be set up after President Donald Trump leaves office, taking aim in particular at the president’s reluctance to fund the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) amid concerns over the delivery of mail-in ballots.

The Californian Democrat, who is a prominent critic of Trump and who played a key role in the president’s impeachment, accused the commander in chief of “sabotaging” the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to win the election in November.

“I don’t say this lightly: when we escape this Trump hell, America needs a Presidential Crimes Commission. It should be made up of independent prosecutors who look at those who enabled a corrupt president,” he tweeted.

“Example 1: Sabotaging the mail to win an election. #SaveThePostOffice,” he added.

[…]

Former president Barack Obama has accused Trump of trying to “actively kneecap the Postal Service” to encourage voting, which he described as “sort of unheard of.”

[Obama] later tweeted that the postal service….

“can’t be collateral damage for an administration more concerned with suppressing the vote than suppressing a virus.

A “Presidential Crimes Commission.”

I like the sound of that.

President Biden………………..make it so.

I hope he gets fried for all the awful things he’s done. The postal service, the way he treated Governors trying to do the right thing. Jared and his bs too. Hatch act violations galore, the money, campaign, and our tax dollars. Pay to play, many businesses got those loans, pocketed the money. Lying about Coronavirus, oh and threatening to steal an election. Calling for violence if he loses. I’m so sick of him. There’s enough to keep someone busy for years investigating his crap.

“In the criminal justice system, corruption at the highest levels of government is considered especially heinous. In the United States of America, the investigators who prosecute these felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Presidential Crimes Commission. These are their stories.”

That would be my dream job to lead that commission. The joy and excitement it would bring would be immeasurable.😇

Even better than the International Criminal Court because a PCC would certainly have jurisdiction in the U.S. and not rely on extradition processes. In addition, a PCC could hand tRump and his sycophants over to the ICC should they outlive their sentences here.
