Update: Feb 11, 2021
- New transcript demonstrates Giuliani pressured Ukraine ‘Trump Mob Style’.
- We still need to know what Trump said in Private with Putin. Maybe the Biden administration can help us get to the truth?
- American needs to know how much damage Trump did by running the white house under foreign influence of authoritarian/dictatorships around the world: Russia, N. Korea, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Brazil, etc.
- What is impeachment for ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ based on? Impeachment for ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ = ‘Loss of Public Trust’ (see reports below source links – precedent for the founding fathers for impeachment dates back to the 14th century).
- Trump and his relatives working in the White House should be investigated for improper influence.
- Donald needs to be investigated ‘properly’ for emoluments violations.
- Louis DeJoy Should be charged with destruction of government property.
- DJT should be investigated to see if he hired DeJoy to slow down the mail and if he had any knowledge of the plan to remove the high speed mailing equipment and the mailboxes; and willful or incitement to destroy government property.
- It’s also time for a REAL investigation of Trumps Russian connections and the influence of a foreign power of the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.
Here’s what the US constitution states about convicting a president after he leaves office.
Article I, Section 3.
- “When the President of the United States is tried”
- “Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.”
In examining the statutes for murder in America it seems clear that Donald Trump caused death by willfully distracting the American public by downplaying the pandemic, while admitting he knew it was much deadlier than the flu.
But his supporters say this is just protected political speech. Let’s look at the definition of murder though, and remember that according the the US Constitution no one is above the law, not even the president.
This begs the question, could there be a class action lawsuit against Donald J. Trump for ignoring his responsibility to protect the American people by putting his own agenda before that or the people?
General code definitions of murder:
(a) Murder is the unlawful killing of a human being with malice aforethought. Every murder perpetrated by poison, lying in wait, or any other kind of willful, deliberate, malicious, and premeditated killing; or committed in the perpetration of, or attempt to perpetrate, any arson, escape, murder, kidnapping, treason, espionage, sabotage, aggravated sexual abuse or sexual abuse, child abuse, burglary, or robbery; or perpetrated as part of a pattern or practice of assault or torture against a child or children; or perpetrated from a premeditated design unlawfully and maliciously to effect the death of any human being other than him who is killed, is murder in the first degree.
Any other murder is murder in the second degree.
(b) Within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States,
Whoever is guilty of murder in the first degree shall be punished by death or by imprisonment for life;
Whoever is guilty of murder in the second degree, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life.
- Any intentional murder that is willful and premeditated with malice aforethought. Felony murder, a charge that may be filed against a defendant who is involved in a dangerous crime where a death results from the crime, is typically first-degree.
Sometimes called a crime of passion murder, is any intentional killing that involves no prior intent to kill, and which was committed under such circumstances that would “cause a reasonable person to become emotionally or mentally disturbed”. Both this and second-degree murder are committed on the spot under a spur-of-the-moment choice, but the two differ in the magnitude of the circumstances surrounding the crime. For example, a bar fight that results in death would ordinarily constitute second-degree murder. If that same bar fight stemmed from a discovery of infidelity, however, it may be voluntary manslaughter.
A killing that stems from a lack of intention to cause death but involving an intentional or negligent act leading to deaths.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The evidence is clear – Jan. 6 capital insurrection incited by Donald J. Trump.
- Trump established “malice aforethought” of the insurrection by calling the insurrectionists to Washington D.C. specifically on Jan. 6, 2021.
- §1111 “Every murder perpetrated by” “willful, deliberate, malicious, and premeditated killing; or committed in the perpetration of, or attempt to perpetrate,” “murder” “perpetrated as part of a pattern or practice of assault” “perpetrated from a premeditated design unlawfully and maliciously to effect the death of any human being other than him who is killed, is murder in the first degree.”
- The insurrectionists themselves confirmed that Donald Trump asked them to come to Washington D.C. on Jan. 6, 2021. [Update: Feb 11, 2021 – This is a similar case to the prosecutorial scenario/technique used in the prosecution of Charles Manson. Manson did not have to commit the murder to be found guilty.]
- Donald Trump, on Jan. 6, 2021 told the mob of insurrectionists “Because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong. ” AND “not going to take it any longer” AND “if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.” AND “Together, we will drain the Washington swamp and we will clean up the corruption in our nation’s capital.” AND “So we’re going to, we’re going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue.” AND “And we’re going to the Capitol” AND “We’re going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country.”
- The results as reported: 140 injuries including head injuries, brain damage, eyes gouged out, one officer lost three fingers, seven lives lost.
The evidence clearly implicates Donald J. Trump, in accordance with the predicates of §1111 for First Degree Murder in “the unlawful killing of a human being with malice aforethought”.
Considering the legal definitions of murder, is Trump guilty of any degree of murder with regard to Covid-19.
Feb 7, 2020: Trump quotes to Bob Woodward early in the pandemic:
- “It goes through the air,”
- “That’s always tougher than the touch. You don’t have to touch things. Right? But the air, you just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed.”
- “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flus.”
On the very same day: Feb 7, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “virus hopefully becomes weaker with warmer weather, and then gone.”
Feb 10, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “A lot of people think that goes away in April with the heat — as the heat comes in. Typically, that will go away in April. We’re in great shape, though. We have 12 cases — 11 cases, and many of them are in good shape now.”
NOTE: The important distinction here is Trump is supposed to be listening to America’s best experts in epidemiology, not what “people think”.
Feb 19, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “I think it’s going to work out fine,”
- “I think when we get into April, in the warmer weather, that has a very negative effect on that and that type of a virus.”
Feb 23, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “We have it very much under control in this country,”
Feb 24, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA,”
- “We are in contact with everyone and all relevant countries. CDC & World Health have been working hard and very smart. Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”
Feb 25, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “You may ask about the coronavirus, which is very well under control in our country. We have very few people with it… But the people are getting better. They’re all getting better,”
Feb 26, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “This is a flu. This is like a flu,”
- “It’s a little like a regular flu that we have flu shots for. And we’ll essentially have a flu shot for this in a fairly quick manner.”
- “The flu, in our country, kills from 25,000 people to 69,000 people a year,”
- ” And, so far, if you look at what we have with the 15 people and their recovery, one is — one is pretty sick but hopefully will recover, but the others are in great shape. But think of that: 25,000 to 69,000.”
- “And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”
CRITICAL POINT: It is at this point Donald Trump has quite clearly admitted to what amounts to murder based on the federal statutes for murder. Trump already stated that Covid-19 is “more deadly than even your strenuous flus”. This is clearly implicating that Donald Trump may be guilty of ‘First Degree Murder’, by definition. He knew it was deadly on Feb. 7, 2020. The “malice aforethought” lies in the fact that he later said he “wanted to always play it down”, which he stated on Mar 19, 2020. The code states: “or perpetrated from a premeditated design unlawfully and maliciously to effect the death of any human being other than him who is killed, is murder in the first degree.” The premeditated design is Trump “wanted to always play it down” combined with Donald’s stated knowledge that Covid-19 is “more deadly that even your strenuous flus”. According to the code “Any other murder is murder in the second degree.” And, if Trump can prove he does not understand the English language in court the evidence still implicates him in voluntary or involuntary manslaughter.
Feb 27, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “And you know what? If we were doing a bad job, we should also be criticized. But we have done an incredible job. We’re going to continue,”
- “It’s going to disappear. One day — it’s like a miracle — it will disappear.”
Feb 29, 2020: Trump says to the public:
“We’ve taken the most aggressive actions to confront the coronavirus. They are the most aggressive taken by any country. And we’re the number-one travel destination anywhere in the world, yet we have far fewer cases of the disease than even countries with much less travel or a much smaller population,”
NOTE: February 29th, this was the day, which the U.S. officially reported its first coronavirus death.
Mar 9, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “So last year 37,000 Americans died from the common Flu. It averages between 27,000 and 70,000 per year,”
- “Nothing is shut down, life & the economy go on. At this moment there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths. Think about that!”
Mar 10, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “Well, this was unexpected. This was something that came out of China, and it hit us and many other countries,”
- “And we’re prepared, and we’re doing a great job with it. And it will go away.”
Mar 12, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “I mean, think of it: The United States, because of what I did and what the administration did with China, we have 32 deaths at this point,”
- “Other countries that are smaller countries have many, many deaths.”
Mar 16, 2020: Trump says to public:
- “No, I’ve always viewed it as very serious,”
- “There was no difference yesterday from days before. I feel the tone is similar, but some people said it wasn’t.”
March 19, 2020: Trump quotes to Bob Woodward
- “It’s not just old, older. Young people too, plenty of young people.”
- “The fact is I’m a cheerleader for this country. I love our country and I don’t want people to be frightened,” “I wanted to always play it down,”
- “I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.”
Mar 24, 2020: Trump says to the public: “We lose thousands and thousands of people a year to the flu. We don’t turn the country off,” “And actually, this year we’re having a bad flu season. But we lose thousands of people a year to the flu. We never turn the country off. We lose much more than that to automobile accidents… I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter.”
Mar 31, 2020: Trump says to the public:
- “A lot of people have said, ‘Ride it out. Don’t do anything, just ride it out and think of it as the flu.’ But it’s not the flu. It’s vicious,”
- “This is not the flu,”
IMPORTANT NOTE: Now Trump, even though he knew this was deadlier than the flu, suddenly reverses course and says “it’s not the flu. It’s vicious”.
The ironic part of the story is that the forensic analysis of Trump’s campaign indicates that if he did not gaslight the public and cause all these additional deaths…in other words if he chose to be a leader (which by the way is the President of the United States job, that is to lead) and protect the public from the virus thus saving tens of thousands of lives if not hundreds of thousands, then he quite likely would have won the election.
All he had to do was tell the truth, that it’s not like a common flu, and tell Americans to wear masks, practice social distancing and wash your hands regularly. Instead he talked about how it is like the flue and how poisoning yourself could cure you, which unfortunately some Americans took seriously, and yes that caused death as well. That’s Trumps fault though.
Probably the only way Trump can prove he is not guilty of some degree of murder would be if he claimed he is simply too dumb to understand English and that he simply did not know what he was talking about when he stated Covid-19 is “more deadly than even your strenuous flus”.
He essentially would have to claim he does not understand the definition of the word ‘deadly’.
Knowing Trump, he will play it off though. He might say ‘Well, I was joking.’ Or, I just meant that it might be like the flu and might kill some people’. No matter what, we can count on Donald Trump to make excuses and divert attention away from himself and blame others. That is his MO.
Another way to get out of it if this ever went to court, and yes, a class action by those hundreds of thousands of families that have lost loved one might very well be feasible here…, if Trump maintains, and can prove in court he is completely ignorant of what knowledge is, and if Donald can prove he is so incompetent that he does not understand what ‘knowing something’ is or means, then he is might be able to slither his way out of it. Otherwise he is ABSOLUTELY guilty of some degree, or multiple degrees, of murder.
