MSNBC Analyst Urges Charging Trump With ‘Manslaughter’ for Deaths on January 6

If you can get Donald Trump tried by a D.C. jury, anything might be possible—even though charging and convicting Trump of “manslaughter” in respect of January 6th seems like an enormous stretch.

Barbara McQuade on Thursday suggested that Trump be charged with manslaughter. Morning Joe. McQuade, an MSNBC legal analyst, was an Obama-appointed U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan. 


“Under federal law,Manslaughter can be brought against anyone who causes a death or unintentionally occurs on federal property. A president has an affirmative obligation to act. his failureYou can call the National Guard to make an emergency call, or even to view a video of yourself, To tweet That they need to stop could be the kind omission This could be worth Slaughter.”

You can’t tweet first-degree failure: Danno!  This isn’t legal analysis. This is liberal bloodlust for Trump.

Barb McQuade doesn’t only push this get-Trump angle at MSNBC. This is what she promotes on on Twitter., which she pushed on Stephanie Miller’s leftist radio show under the headline, “Trump Should be Charged w/ Multiple Counts for Manslaughter.”

Who got Joe Scarborough, though? 

We saw him angrily attacking Attorney General Merrick Galrland yesterdayHe screamed at Trump to “throw in prison” his Secret Service “lackeys”, in which he was accused of deleting text messages from the J6 period. 

Scarborough made a sudden mea culpa today for his harsh criticisms of GarlandAccording to Scarborough, DoJ investigations are slow and should not be done in a hurry. Scarborough claimed his sudden change of mind was due to reading an article from Lawfare entitled Ben Wittes defending the Department of Justice’s deliberate approach. 

Another strange twist is that of all the federal investigations Scarborough could have cited as proving that they take long to complete, the one he selected was into Andrew Gillum’s activities [although Scarborough was too refined to identify his fellow liberal by name.]  After a multi-year investigation, Gillum was indicted on 21 counts of soliciting improper campaign donations and offering political favors in return for financial support.

Gillum was the Democrat nominee for Florida Governor in 2018. Gillum’s opponent in the race was Ron DeSantis, a liberal Public Enemy #2. Ron DeSantis is the liberal Public Enemy #2 [need we say who’s #1?]Two days ago we were able to capture this image. Morning Joe DeSantis as “an exemplary company”Evil genius!” 

You’re more curious than you realize!

Barbara McQuade, MSNBC’s legal analyst, suggested that Donald Trump be indicted for manslaughter. This was partly sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline (maker of Shingrix and Liberty Mutual) as well as Angi.

Morning Joe
6:21 am EDT  

MIKA BRZEZINSKI : [Washington]Post claims that the committee will emphasize a crucial point. Trump is alleged to have done nothing but to watch the violence and he also enjoyed it. . .  Joining us now, former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade. Barbara McQuade, a former U.S. Attorney is joining us now to discuss the Secret Service situation. First, tell us what you think we will see tonight and what you have seen thus far.

What does it all mean?

BARBARA MCQUADE (Yes, so tonight), I believe his three-hours of inaction will be very crucial to this case. His inaction could be considered a crime, unlike many of us, who are not required to intervene when there is a crime. 

Mika could be held liable if someone died as a result of his failure to exercise due diligence when he knew violence was taking place at Capitol. 

It seems like they are looking for things like obstruction of an official proceeding and conspiracy to defraud United States. HoweverThis could lead to evidence that can even be used as evidence against manslaughter. Under federal law,A death on federal property can result in a charge of manslaughter. A president has an affirmative obligation to act. His failure to summon the National Guard or to go on camera, To tweet That they need to stop could be the kind omission Could amount to manslaughter.


JOE SCARBOROUGH : I have to say that,Yesterday I was harshly critical of the Attorney general. Before I even saw the tape, Ben Wittes had written an article about Lawfare. By the end, I was disgusted at the way the Attorney General conducted a federal probe. . . Ben Wittes proved right yesterday. People like me shouldn’t criticize the Attorney general too soon. Federal investigations can be long and laborious., and given the gravity of the possible prosecution  of a former president,  the, the pros of DoJ and the FBI need to move with great caution, I agree with him, even while they’re pursuing justice

…. I will admit that it is very simple for me and for the other commentators. It’s also very easy to criticize Merrick Galrland or federal prosecutors on Twitter. Again, Jonathan Lemire can reiterate this and Barbara, I’m certain, will. Federal investigations sometimes take quite a while. 

Jonathan was the Democratic candidate for Governor in Florida. He almost defeated Ron DeSantis who was recently indicted in federal investigations. It took me five years, I’m not sure how long, for the investigation to complete its course. People are asking what is going on with other investigations into politicians. It is taking so much time. Federal investigations can be long and laborious. They are determined to get it right. 

Merrick Garland would move too fast to indict a former president, which I understand.
