Hunter Who? Desperate Democrats Accuse Trump Jr. of Treason, Demand Imprisonment – Opinion

As Joe Biden and his crackhead son Hunter move closer and closer to the consequences of their own nefarious deeds, desperate Democrats have dusted off Donald Trump Jr. and accused him of treason related to the January 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol, demanding he be imprisoned for his “crimes.”

Incidentally, it has amused the hell out of me for five years or more how both sides toss around the word “treason” at the drop of a politically expedient hat. Trump Jr. may be relieved. Lin Wood, a Wing-nut Lawyer, predicted that Vice President Mike Pence would face treason charges and be executed by firing squad. So it seems like Jr. will get away relatively easily. His “treasonous actions.” </sarcasm>

As reported by Newsweek, “legal experts” are calling for Trump Jr. to face criminal proceedings after newly revealed text messages obtained by the January 6 House committee show he sought to prevent certification of the 2020 election and install his father to a second term. (Nonsense.)

While votes for the 2020 election were being counted, Trump Jr. texted then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows laying out a strategy to keep President Donald Trump in power by throwing out election results of key swing states, CNN (Who knew?) reported Friday.

The disclosed texts shed further light on recent revelations of Trump and his inner circle’s efforts to block the certification of the 2020 election.

“It’s very simple,” Trump Jr. texted Meadows on November 5, the text reads, according to CNN. “We have multiple paths We control them all.”

In a statement to CNN, Trump Jr.’s lawyer Alan S. Futerfas explained:

Don received many messages after the election from both supporters and other people. The date indicates that this message probably came from another source and was sent to Don.

Futerfas’ supposition about the November 5 text message tracks almost exactly with the strategy suggested by Trump allies at the time. Trump Jr. allegedly also made specific reference to filing lawsuits and advocating recounts to prevent certain swing states from certifying their results, noted CNN, as well as “having a handful of Republican statehouses put forward slates of ‘Trump electors.’”

Back to those “legal experts.”

Newsweek conveniently quoted various people, none of whom were driven by the Democrat narrative at all </sarcasm>, including University of Minnesota Law School Professor Richard Painter, former chief ethics lawyer for former President George W. Bush, who said on Twitter:

It was an attempt to putsch. He should be in jail!

Because all respected attorneys gleefully refer to prison as “the slammer!”

Glenn Kirschner is next, a former U.S. Army prosecutions officer and current NBC News/MSNBC legal analysis.

The “Subject” line of Don Jr.’s email might as well have been, “I’m a member of my father’s criminal conspiracy to overturn the election.” How long do we have to endure this open, treasonous criminality by Trump and company before someone gets indicted?

Whoa, counselor — jump to a predisposed verdict without a trial, much?

It would not be a professional, objective legal opinion complete without Ted Lieu (Democratic Representative) tweeting.

It sure seems like an illegal conspiracy.

Yes, I do know that a conspiracy in legal terms is already illegal. The word illegal does not need to be used. But I wanted to say illegal again to emphasize how illegal Donald Trump Jr.’s actions appear to be).

Rep. Lieu has not yet said if Hunter Biden is also believed to have compromised national security.

Let’s get to the bottom.

All that any of the above suggests is that Team Trump, in many instances, planned to use the law and courts — legally — to their advantage, if possible, which is exactly what the Democrats do, ad nauseam.

Apart from the Nov. 5 text message, all of the above are not applicable. Neue news.

And while it’s true that more than 60 unsuccessful lawsuits were filed in key states in the weeks following the election, none of which convinced the courts — many were decisions by Republican-appointed judges, some of whom appointed by Trump himself — that claims about a “stolen election” were justified, the Democrats and their allies (as is exactly the case with Donald Trump and HisAllies) are not planning to look ahead to 2024, and instead will be looking at the future sans 2020. They may have different reasons.

These are factual facts. Skewer the messenger if that’s your thing; it comes with the territory.
