A House Democrat from New Jersey ignored his party leader’s promise to work with the GOP and called for another political investigation into the Trump administration.
Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) called for a new inquiry into the president and his leadership team and vowed to prosecute them to the maximum extent allowed by law.
“Donald Trump and members of his administration have committed innumerable crimes against the United States,” he said in a statement. “Therefore, in 2021, the entire Trump administration must be fully investigated by the Department of Justice and any other relevant offices.”
Pascrell called the Trump administration a “danger” to the nation, family unity, and political transparency.
“He has endangered our national security, he ripped families apart, he poisoned the census,” he said. “He has [also] personally profited from his office; he has attacked our elections and sought to throttle democracy.”
He then attacked the president without providing verifiable evidence of wrongdoing.
“Donald Trump, along with his worst enablers, must be tried for their crimes against our nation and Constitution,” he said. “Importantly, any further abuse of the sacred pardon power to shield criminals would itself be obstruction of justice, and any self-pardons would be illegal.”
He even commended House Democrats’ failed impeachment inquiry into alleged “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress,” even though the Senate found insufficient evidence to prove wrongdoing that warranted removing the president from the Oval Office.
“He was rightly impeached by the House of Representatives; he has engaged in treachery, in treason,” he said. “He has all but given up on governing and protecting our nation, and if he had a shred of dignity, he would resign today.”
The remarks came despite Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden promising to cooperate more closely with the Republican Party to help rebuild the national economy after the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus has passed.
“More people may die if we do not coordinate,” he said, according to Reuters.
Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz previously criticized Democratic impeachment managers for making “vague” and “wrong” charges against President Trump during the House impeachment inquiry.
“I am sorry, House managers, you just picked the wrong criteria,” he said at the Senate trial, according to a video uploaded by Fox News. “You picked the most dangerous possible criteria to serve as a precedent for how we supervise and oversee future presidents.”
Dershowitz, who previously voted for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.), challenged the team led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) because “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress” are not even close to impeachable offenses.
