President Donald Trump

WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) this week called for the widespread investigation and prosecution of members of the outgoing Trump administration.

“Donald Trump and members of his administration have committed innumerable crimes against the United States,” said Rep. Pascrell. “He has endangered our national security. He ripped families apart. He poisoned the Census. He has personally profited from his office. He has attacked our elections and sought to throttle democracy. He was rightly impeached by the House of Representatives. He has engaged in treachery, in treason. He has all but given up on governing and protecting our nation and if he had a shred of dignity he would resign today.

“Therefore, in 2021 the entire Trump administration must be fully investigated by the Department of Justice and any other relevant offices. Donald Trump along with his worst enablers must be tried for their crimes against our nation and Constitution.

Bill Pascrell, Jr.; Chairman, House Ways & Means Subcommittee on Oversight.

Importantly, any further abuse of the sacred pardon power to shield criminals would itself be obstruction of justice, and any self-pardons would be illegal.

“Failure to hold financial and political wrongdoing accountable in the past has invited greater malfeasance by bad actors. A repeat of those failures in 2021 further emboldens criminality by our national leaders and continues America down the path of lawlessness and authoritarianism. There must be accountability.”

    Trump lost fair and square. We the people said he is FIRED!!

    We the people will not let you or his base get away with trying to coup our voting system!!

    A little reminder to Republicans in government. You DO NOT WORK FOR TRUMP. You work for the people!!

    By keeping your mouths numb is only proving that you all are gutless, cowards, and fraidy cats that will bring your party down!!!

    Something funny is the Republicans keep saying FAKE NEWS, but depends on the media to try and get their messages out. (Laughable)

    The Republican party is becoming a bunch of FAKERS themselves.

    Beat them at their own game — Remember the first commandment of politics: Do unto Democrats as they have done unto us.

      Years of Benghazi without any indictments… How many wasted millions went into those political crapshoots? Yeah, you remember this point. But rest assured, now Democrats investigate people go to prison. Remember Russia, Russia, Russia? We sure got enough guilty pleas/convictions for a “nothingburger”. LOL! Buckle up, sweetheart!

      Supreme Court justices (and all judges) take an oath to the Constitution and laws. Not to political parties. You’ve seen how judges have been ruling in the past two weeks, and it proves my point.

    When it is announced Trump has won the elections liberals will be almost as mad as they were when they lost their slaves.

    Democrats are on their way to placing America under the thumb of a communistic regime run by an empty-headed Commander-in-Thief installed as its figurehead.

    Prosecutors in New York state and city are eager for Donny boy to leave the White House. Then they will show the entire Trump team just how justice works.

    Of course the Democrats will waste time and money on a lost cause instead of capitalizing on their power to do good for our country. It baffles me how people can support and follow these criminals with a blind eye.

    As much as I’d like to see it all happen, it’s up to the individual states where crimes have been committed to investigate and prosecute. None of us have an iota of an influence on that.
