Donald Trump breaks laws like the yous and mes crack eggs, open mail, i.e., we don’t think about it. We just do it. Today he really outdid himself. He sent out both his batshit manifesto declaring the “old Republican Party is gone FOREVER” and he’s come up with something better, the “Working People’s [sic] Party.” I guess spelling and grammar are not necessary to a fascist takeover.
But before that epistle from Hell was launched into the ethernet, policy and piffle personified, Trump-a-thustra spake thusly.
HIs “envoy ambassador?” An envoy is a “representative or messenger, especially on a diplomatic mission.” An ambassador is “an accredited diplomat sent by a country as its official representative to a foreign country.” Grenell went over there to do diplomacy on the order of what country? Trumpistan? It sure as hell wasn’t the United States of America. Our elected government did squat to send Grenell over there.
And guess what, there are laws against this kind of thing. PoliticusUSA”
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
Donald Trump Is Actively Undermining US Foreign Policy And Needs To Be Arrested
Trump is not a government official. He does not get to have envoy ambassadors. He is not authorized to represent or negotiate for the United States government.
Donald Trump has gone from being a delusional loser who thinks that he really won to being a coup plotter who tried to overthrow the United States government and is now running a shadow government that is undermining US foreign policy.
Trump won’t stop until he is dead or locked up, so he needs to be arrested for his seditious activities.
Trump doesn’t just get to send “envoy ambassadors.” Not to represent the United States, he doesn’t, because he has zero authority to do anything on behalf of the United States. I suppose it can be argued that as a private citizen if he wanted to send a colleague to convey his thoughts as a former head of state to a country he once had diplomatic relations with, that’s probably okay. But “envoy ambassador” and this pompous posturing is not.
I hope the Biden administration throws the book at him. Poor Merrick Garland. He’s doing the work of five men, coming into his job post Trump. It never stops. It’s like dark and snow in the Antarctic, it just doesn’t let up for a minute.
