Johnson Pushes Bill to Support Trump After Guilty Verdict

Johnson Pushes Bill to Support Trump After Guilty Verdict

Quote

House Republican leaders are whipping votes on a bill aimed at showing allegiance to former President Trump after his historic conviction — but it’s unclear if they can secure the needed support.

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) is under pressure from GOP hardliners to schedule a vote on the measure as part of a full-court press to defend Trump, so any difficulty locking down votes could once again put him in their crosshairs.

The bill would allow current or former presidents to move state-level charges against them into federal court. It’s in direct response to Trump’s conviction last week in New York.  

Johnson wants to codify making former POTUS above the law. 🤮

Do you attack the legitimacy of the Federal courts now?!

Do you know how to read?

Giving former POTUS special privileges means "above the law" which applies to everyone else.

Along the same lines as Trump's claimed "total immunity" for crimes committed in office.

That's not above the law. Lots of people have special privileges when it comes to venue.  All they're talking about is moving it away from partisan courts and into a federal court which is inevitably going to be slightly less partisan as a rule. I mean let's face it, if trump had been tried anywhere else in the entire country he would have been innocent.

Considering that now political opponents are fair game targets for democrats having the ability to force a change of venue helps disrupt their anti-democratic methods of coming up with fake charges to throw at political opponents by rigging where the trial is heard

No, those "special privileges" were to move any criminal cases to the Federal courts. How is that above the law? 

Do you question the legitimacy of the federal justice system now?!

democrats are the ones who think they're above the law. Johnson knows it, I know it, and so do all you braindead heathens. 

That is inaccurate. Democrats do not believe they are above the law. Democrats believe they ARE the law.

Yeah, you're right. Doesn't that just make you want to go 2nd Amendment on their asses?

You sound just as lDIOTIC as Trump when both of you start claiming to define what everyone "knows." 

No one (sane) believes Trump nor YOU.

OPINION doesn't become fact just cause you claim "everyone knows it." LMAO

No CHANGE to the law would be necessary if he wasn't seeking special privileges. Duh

You and TRUTH fight each other at every turn. 

For every puny, stupid assed, "fact" that you present, there's a truckload of deceit behind it. 

You're the very definition of "tell a little truth to get a massive lie past someone". lol

No, roboshill, you're the biggest scumbag liar on this forum - by FAR.

You claim that he would be above the law because of them. 

How?

Again, it is moving things to the federal courts. Are you now questioning the federal justice system?!

The argument isn't that this would be some kind of special privilege, it is that you claimed he would be above the law. 

I fully explained this in the post you just responded to already.

You're weak roboshill, and nobody buys what you're peddling. 

Find a spot where you feel climate change is the most intense and have a good cry. 

You know, like these ldiots. ;)

No, you nitwit, it’s an attempt to create a law which would apply to no person in all of American history, past or present, except Donald Trump.

Actually...Dweebles...Trump has a rather commanding lead in the polls so...ya...lots of people believe Trump. Enough in fact, to put him back in the Whitehouse.

No, not just Donald Trump. Spend more time focusing on your ignorance or integrity and less name-calling. 

To my point, this doesn't make anyone above the law. Do you not grasp that simple concept?

Can you name one single person in U.S. history, living or dead, who this law would apply to… besides Donald Trump? How hard is that.

Biden has not been charged in any state court, so this law does not affect him. It only affects the convicted felon. 
 

A better approach is simply don’t commit crime, and don’t vote for criminals.

So why did you vote for Biden?
