Arrest Chuck Schemer now! It is totally against the law to threaten government officials and Presidents. This threat happened three days ago and the head of the Democratic Party in the Senate is still free. Why hasn’t this criminal been arrested? I grew up knowing Joe Bonanno because he moved to a ranch next door to us years ago.
He is no longer alive to assure everyone, this is exactly how the Mafia threatens people. True, Chuckie didn’t say Trump will swim with the fishes. But every word, gesture and sneering face communicated that something really horrible will happen to Trump if he challenges the corrupt, ugly mess that is the CIA and the other spook agencies, all 16 of which are run by Obama, a war criminal.
Threatening government officials of the United States is a serious crime under federal law. Threatening the President of the United States is a Class E felony under 18 U.S.C. § 871, punishable by up to 5 years of imprisonment, that is investigated by the United States Secret Service.
Threatening other officials is a Class C or D felony, usually carrying maximum penalties of 5 or 10 years under 18 U.S.C. § 875, 18 U.S.C. § 876 and other statutes, that is investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
When national boundaries are transcended by such a threat, it is considered a terrorist threat. When a threat is made against a judge, it can be considered obstruction of justice. Threatening federal officials’ family members is also a federal crime; in enacting the law, the Committee on the Judiciary stated that “Clearly it is a proper Federal function to respond to terrorists and other criminals who seek to influence the making of Federal policies and interfere with the administration of justice by attacking close relatives of those entrusted with these tasks.”
There are three elements of the offense of making an illegal threat: (i) there must be a transmission in interstate commerce; (ii) there must be a communication containing the threat; (iii) and the threat must be a threat to injure the person of another. Threats can also sometimes be punished under the statutes criminalizing assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain United States Government officers or employees or assassinating, kidnapping, and assaulting government officials of the United States.
Chuck Schemer (I think I’ll keep this name for him since autocorrect insists this is his real name!) emerges as Trump’s newest punching bag, according to Reuters which no longer has real news all the time but goofy stories like this one. Chuck is the new ‘minority leader’ in Congress after US voters turned against the Democrats across the board except in California and parts of NY/NJ tristate region.
President-elect Donald Trump, who insulted rivals during his 2016 campaign with nicknames such as “Crooked Hillary” and “Little Marco,” has a new nemesis: U.S. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, a man he derides as a “clown.”
The rhetorical banter that erupted between the two New Yorkers this week centered on a fight over Republican plans to dismantle Obamacare, an effort that Trump has put at the top of his domestic agenda.
Zero Hedge noticed that what Chuckie did is very illegal. But no one can do anything, we have 16 agencies that are supposed to be protecting us yet Congress and the White House is filled with and run by a gang of criminals who openly break national and international laws.
They don’t protect our borders, for example! They let mobs of violent criminals roam the streets, attacking citizens at eating places, businesses, malls, parks, streets and in their homes while lecturing us that all this is due to past sins and we should live with ravaging mobs stealing and killing us all.
That is certainly treason. But the Chuckie episode is quite specific: he really did threaten the President and did this on national TV and hoped he would force Trump to change his promises to voters and his policies so that Chuckie and his buddies can continue to break other laws. Namely, Chuckie wanted the people who enforce the laws to break the laws.
He was calling for an insurrection as well as doing Mafia talk that all moviegoers know is a threat to murder Trump for this is how it is portrayed in the movies all the time.
