Explosive New Book Tell Why Trump Has Not Been Indicted
By: The Hutchinson Report
She contended that he could be prosecuted immediately on two federal laws---conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of an official proceeding. She noted, "It's not a far-fetched legal theory," she explained. "The ideal is that, if you use fraud to obstruct some lawful operation of government, it is a crime."
In Indicted -The Case for and Against Prosecuting Trump Hutchinson tells why McQuade's contention that Trump can, and by implication, will be prosecuted had not happened more than a year after she laid out the case against Trump.
Hutchinson observes, "A pack of legal experts again cited federal statutes that prohibited a private citizen, which Trump now was, from taking classified government documents. The other two federal statutes Trump was suspected of having broken – 18 USC Section 2071 and 18 USC Section 1519 – criminalize the concealment, removal, and destruction of government records, regardless of classification level.
In Indicted, Hutchinson says "There were three separate times, three separate alleged violations of federal laws, and a small army of legal experts, former federal prosecutors, and even former White House Trump aides and officials that claimed Trump broke numerous laws. Yet, there was not a single hint from the DOJ, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, and President Biden that an indictment was being considered.
In Indicted: The Case for and Against Prosecuting Trump Hutchinson assesses the repeated calls made for Trump's prosecution on multiple offenses. He asks and answers two questions: if the evidence as many prosecutors' claim was so overwhelming, why was Trump not prosecuted? The second question was: Can Trump be successfully prosecuted?
Hutchinson details how and why prosecuting Trump is not just about enforcing the law, but politics. Before during and after his White House tenure, Trump was repeatedly accused of breaking and skirting the law, but no prosecution resulted. Again, politics is the explanation. It can't be separated from the thorny issue of prosecuting Trump. Hutchinson makes a challenging and compelling case that indeed one man, Trump, is and has been above the law. He asks-will that continue to be the case?
