What’s The Point?

So…the other day the question of what the point of the January 6th hearings might be came up. It seems the Justice Department is conducting it’s own investigations separately from the House committee and the two don’t seem to be sharing information. The Justice Department will determine if the criminal activity the Dumbass clearly engaged in warrants prosecution. Obviously, it does but this is an ex-president so he gets special handling, like it or not. Apparently, ex-presidents get to commit any crime they want to commit and they’ll get “special handling.” (Yeah, Rule of Law’s ass…)

My guess? Fourteenth Amendment. I think the House is letting the Justice Department do their thing and the House is working to prevent the traitorous trumpery from ever getting anywhere near the Oval Office again. The Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3 says: “No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

It’s going to take some ellipses to clarify how it applies to trumpery. “No person shall…hold any office…who, having previously taken an oath…to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same…

That’s why it’s so important to the GOP that people think the violent, radical terrorists who attacked the Capitol building at trump’s request and according to trump’s plan were really just on an unauthorized tour. They need to turn it to something not-so-insurrectionist or the Dumbass can’t ever hold public office again.

I’ll tell you this: He might be, should be, convicted for his crimes but I know he’s not going to jail. I HOPE, at a bare minimum, he pays a massive fine. He defrauded his followers out of $250 million. It should be at LEAST that amount. But never holding public office again would be an excellent start and I’m hoping the Dems can get at least THAT right for once…
