WED, 18 NOV, 2020-theGBJournal-U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. Tuesday called for the widespread investigation and prosecution of members of the outgoing Trump Administration.
Pascrell Jr represents the 9th District of New Jersey in the U.S. House of Representatives.
He said U.S President Donald Trump and members of his administration have committed innumerable crimes against the United States.
Pascrell Jr. suggests that Trump ‘’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 reason. 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 office.’’
According to the congressman, ‘’Donald Trump along with his enablers must be tried for their crimes against our nation and Constitution. 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.’’
Several U.S news report has suggested that Donald Trump is mulling self-pardon before his exit from the White House in January 2021.
‘’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.’’
