Trump Could Face Five Years In Prison For Death Threat Against Hillary Clinton



Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump blatantly encouraged individuals attending a campaign rally in Wilmington, N.C. to commit violence against Hillary Clinton, and now he may find himself heading towards a prison cell – as such a despicable comment might be construed as a felony.

During Trump’s speech, where words dribbled past his jiggly orange chin, he lamented on with one of his favorite lies about Hillary Clinton; that she is attempting to take guns away from American citizens. According to the faux billionaire, “Hillary wants to essentially abolish the Second Amendment. And by the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

While Trump’s crowds are typically like wild rabid unspayed animals fighting over bits of bloody meat, a hush fell over those who could not believe their favorite potential fascist had just suggested they shoot Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s campaign immediately began performing damage control. Trump’s spokesman Jason Miller lied through his teeth when he said, “It’s called the power of unification – 2nd Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power. And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won’t be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump.”

However, when one threatens a public figure in such a blatant way, there is no unringing that bell, despite whatever contortions the Trump campaign attempts to spin. Donald Trump committed a felony and should be arrested immediately. Under 18 U.S. Code § 879 – Threats against former Presidents and certain other persons:

(a)Whoever knowingly and willfully threatens to kill, kidnap, or inflict bodily harm upon—

(3) a major candidate for the office of President or Vice President, or a member of the immediate family of such candidate; or

(4) a person protected by the Secret Service under section 3056(a)(6); shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.

4. Blatant? Or just obtuse?

Trump talks so much shit, and this statement can also be interpreted as just more half-witted gobbledygook.

Good luck indicting him on that. Although I would be happy.

6. This should happen. No one should be permitted to set a fire as he consistently does. It's

not enough to condemn his words. He should be arrested today.
