Weissman wants Trump prosecuted

BreitbartAndrew Weissmann, an MSNBC contributor and top deputy to former special counsel Robert Mueller, is calling on former Vice President Joe Biden to prosecute President Donald Trump, assuming he will be inaugurated in January.

Weissmann, in an op-ed for the New York Times that the next Department of Justice “should investigate Mr. Trump and, if warranted, prosecute him for potential federal crimes.”

“Mr. Trump’s criminal exposure is clear,” he said, adding that there is “ample evidence to support a charge that Mr. Trump obstructed justice,” in the Mueller probe, which cleared the president of any criminal wrongdoing between himself and the Russian government during his White House transition.

This represents not only a completely baseless accusation, but a dangerous line in the sand. Not because he's suggesting prosecuting someone for what they did as President; that's disturbing enough. But because he's suggesting prosecuting Trump for effectively nothing at all. Remember, Weissman had his chance to convince Mueller to bring obstruction of justice charges. He failed. He had his chance to convince Barr and Rosenstein, and he failed. He wrote a report to convince the public, and he failed. And now he wants to criminally prosecute someone for vigorously defending themselves within the public sphere.

He's not the only one either. Other Leftists have started filing bar complaints against anyone who agrees to represent Trump. And others have called for enemy lists and even reeducation camps.
