Trump’s Punishment? Democrats Want The Death Penalty

A number of serious charges, including one that could result in the death sentence being imposed, are included in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s indictment of former President Trump this week for his part in the effort to contest the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

18 U.S.C. 241, “Conspiracy Against Rights,” carries a maximum 10-year jail sentence. However, it also states that the perpetrator may be executed if the conduct listed by this clause cause death:

In any State, Commonwealth, Territory, Possession, or District, if two or more people conspire to injure, threaten, oppress, or intimidate any person in their free exercise as well as enjoyment of any privilege or right secured to him through the Constitution or the laws of the United States, or because he has so exercised such right or privilege; or,

“If two or more people go undercover on the street or on someone else’s property with the goal to restrict or impede their ability to freely exercise or enjoy any legally granted right or privilege,”

“They shall be fined or imprisoned not over ten years, or both; and if death results from acts done in violation, or if such acts include attempted kidnapping, sexual abuse or an attempt to sexual abuse, or an attempt to murder, they shall be fined or imprisoned for life or sentenced to death.”

The Capitol incident on January 6 resulted in the death of one person, Ashli Babbitt, a rioter who was shot by a police officer, according to Smith this week. Smith said that Trump’s allegations regarding the election were the cause of the riot. The unconnected deaths of other demonstrators and Capitol Police officers, however, have been attributed by Democrats to Trump.

Democrats along with some of Trump’s Republican rivals have also attempted to pin the blame on him for what they claim were attempts by a number of the rioters to abduct Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as well as then-Vice President Mike Pence. Smith may make a similar defense.

The following other offenses against Trump are also included in the January 6 indictment and carry harsh jail sentences as punishments:

The maximum sentence under 18 U.S.C. 371, Conspiracy to Defraud the United States, represents five years in prison, however, penalties may be reduced if the conspiracy involved committing a misdemeanor; in such instance, the sentence may not exceed the maximum for that offense.

Conspiracy to Obstruct an Official Proceeding is punishable under 18 U.S.C. 1512(k), a law that was originally intended to penalize witness tampering. It carries a possible 20-year prison sentence for anybody who “influences, obstructs, or impedes any official proceeding.”

Obstruction on and Attempt to Obstruct any Official Proceeding is also punishable by up to 20 years in jail under 18 U.S.C. 1512(c).

If the penalties are handed down consecutively and Trump is found guilty on all four offenses and faces the maximum non-lethal punishment, he could spend 55 years behind bars. That increases Trump’s maximum federal jail sentence to 515 years, or more than half a millennium, when the 460 years in prison that Smith is pursuing in the “documents” case in federal court in Miami is added to it.

  1. They’re not looking for death penalty. But, a woman did lose her life due to his causing Jan 6 to happen. Since he’s gotten away all these years without any punishment, and, his current age, maybe he needs the death penalty to see that nobody is ever above the law. Especially him. It wouldn’t hurt my feelings a bit if they put him to death. He’s a criminal who’s been free too long. A woman died and he has never been held accountable in his rotten life. Let’s start now! But I know he’ll get away with everything as he always has. So, why bother?? He should die for Ashley Rabbit losing her life.

    1. Th Clintons are still alive and well and more than 1 died at their feet! How in the world you can assess the life of Ashli (not Ashley) Babbitt (not Rabbit) at the hands of DJT is beyond all common sense and rule of Law. I would wholeheartedly suggest counseling for you or better yet, study the US Constitution. Additionally, a prayer that God heal your broken soul.

      1. no one said a thing when an airplane (flight 126) went down in the Florida everglades. A man making speeches about then, POTUS Bill Clinton, missed his flight by 10 or 15 minutes. Everybody that was on board died. The reason it went down? oxygen generators. There are nearly 200 others that have mysteriously died that were connected to the Clintons. not one arrest. (Waco? Ruby Ridge?) (Oklahoma City?)

      2. I think that the death penalty is a fantastic idea. Perhaps using the electric chair. Mr Trump could sit in sleepy joes LAP! BUT, the chair should be tested first by Clinton, Obuma and several other DeMonRats. Hey Maryann, maybe
        you can pull the switch each time, since you are such a bloodthirsty person. Hey its partytime, Hunter can bring hookers, cocaine and some Ukraine buddies. Lets boogie on down. Atire requested everyone atending this GALA in orange jumpsuits Great comments by Timothy, Dr.Anolg and MANY others

    2. You are just crazy. Ashley Babbit was killed by an Capitol Police officer. He is the one that should be in prison. Pelosi should be there also. It was she that refused President Trump’s offer of National Guard troops to keep the peace. You stupid left wing morons are so infected with TDS that stupid comments like yours keep coming out.

      1. Thank you for pointing that out.
        When will these Republicans start prosecuting??? American Patriots are getting tired of waiting!!!

      2. I follow you & your thoughts about January 6.. There are several names I would insert Pelosi, Biden. and the policeman who shot Ashley Babbitt….No, he was sent to a faraway place & is enjoying his reward…Dems actually kept hidden the name of the officer….

    3. With all DEMOCRATS doing the talking, it is all about politics and POWER. ALL other Presidents have kept recrds and put them in Libraries, but Donald John Trump had all of his STOLEN by a nutjob FBI raid on his home in Florida while he was not there! All of this HULL-A-BOO isPresidential Interference by a sitting graveling incoherant illegal President. There are many MILLIONS of American Citizens who believe this!TRUMP is T-Totally innocent of all charges, THE DUMBOCRATS HAVE BEEN AFTER HIM SINCE HE SWITCHED FROM DEMOCAT TO REPUBLICAN, LOOK IT UP! The Master LAW professors all say,that the DEMOCRATS have pulled up vague laws from the 1800’s, twisted them to fit todays narative to persecute trump. ALL OF THIS IS TO KEEP TRUMP OFF THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, BECAUSE THEY KNOW TRUMP WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT!!

    4. Ashley Babbit was MURDERED by that capitol Police Lieutenant, and it was then COVERED UP by the DemoncRATS. There was absolutely NO REASON for him to use deadly force. She never posed any threat of bodily harm to that coward. In fact if you supporters of murderers bothered to look at, study and try” to understand the video of the shooting” you’d see he was NEVER PUT IN A POSITION to fear for his life from her. From his “Hidey Hole” in the hallway he stepped out of you could now see, if one paid ATTENTION, that there were officers at the end of that hallway beginning to move in his direction and NO ONE ELSE. If the COWARD wanted to run there was NO ONE to stop him.
      Instead of holding him responsible for his actions they “Awarded” him some sort of “GOLD MEDAL” and he never had to make ANY statements to investigators to justify his actions. Instead they vilified Babbit

  2. I am sick of all the negativity about Donald Trump. Biden is such a loser that the Democrats can’t do anything except try to demonize Trump. It’s disgusting and I am tired of it!

  3. The ridiculous demonization of Donald Trump is beyond ludicrous! Trump was an excellent President and a patriot. How he has invoked such hatred from the Democrats is amazing–they have thrown everything but the kitchen sink to keep him from running for office again. It is an embarrassment to watch the Democrats with their hair on fire in a frantic attempt to avoid Trump. They would rather support the completely immoral individual currently in office, who supports open borders, sanctuary cities filled with homeless and drug ridden persons, and who argues against fossil fuels, gas stoves, incandescent light bulbs, etc., while the world laughs at us and China prepares for our demise. The list of faux pas by Biden and his criminal activities make him a laughing stock. When elected, he spoke of unifying our country, but all he has done is to divide it. He refers to MAGA republicans as a danger to our democracy. That is divisive and beyond ridiculous. He needs to resign as soon as possible as he is incapable of representing the USA.

      1. have ya’ll ever heard about the rap sheets of our federal gov’t. They can’t even get a credit card in their name, failed businesses, bankruptcies that WE had to bail out? no one is above the law? they are

    1. He stands in their way to turn OUR COUNTRY to the newest third world country on the planet that they can control!

  4. It’s hard to see that these people have become infected with the killer desires just so they can rule over anyone who disagrees with them. There will come a time when they will understand they were doing wrong.

  5. The Capital Police Officer that cold bloodedly Murdered Ashli Babbit, his name is Michael Byrd a big ass black racisr bastard that has yet to be Arrested and prosecuted for murdering an unarmed white veteran woman named Ashli Babbit! He has been identified and his picture is all over the internet! Michael Byrd should be arrested and prosecuted for Murder in the First Degree! Then executed along with ‘Nasty Nancy Pelosi! Nasty Nancy Pelosi with her cohorts planned the January 6th Riots proof is that Nasty Nancy was no where near the capital and she refused the National Guard that was offered! Plus Nasty Nancy’s daughter’s fake docu drama has been Photoshopped & cropped to fit the Woke narrative and The Woke Agenda! Nasty Nancy Pelosi as speaker ordered the capital police to shoot to kill and they did just that and more than one person has lost their lives at Nasty Nancy Pelosi’s hands! The Bitch has Innocent Americans blood on her hands! She is guilty of Conspiracy to Commit Murder and Crimes Against Humanity! I’m not a Trump supporter or fan but this HATE Obsession that she & the woke millennial’s have has got to stop
