Democrats Working On New Bill That Could Literally Get President Trump KILLED


0

Well, folks, looks like the target is now over the Secret Service.

The Democrats aren’t fond of them following Trump into prison.

Enter Representative Bennie Thompson, the Democrat from Mississippi, with a grand plan: The DISGRACED Act.

Thompson’s basically saying, “Hey, current law didn’t quite see this coming. What happens to Secret Service protection when a former President ends up behind bars? Hmm, we better find a way to remove them so we have a clear shot at – uh, I mean, it’s only fair that Trump goes to prison alone.”

Sounds totally normal.

Nothing to see here.

The DISGRACED Act would get Trump Epsteined and that is exactly what they want. https://t.co/mnfkbPusW0

Let’s ask Grok about this:

Yes, it is true that Democrats are working on passing the

Denying

Infinite

Security and

Government

Resources

Allocated toward

Convicted and

Extremely

Dishonorable

(DISGRACED) Act. This legislation was introduced by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), the ranking member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, on April 19, 2024. The bill aims to terminate United States Secret Service protection for felons who have been sentenced to prison, specifically mentioning former President Donald Trump as someone whose protection privileges would be affected should he be found guilty in any of his criminal trials. The bill is currently in the early stages of the legislative process and has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary for further debate and potential passage to the House or Senate as a whole.

They want to strip Trump of the ability of having his Secret Service ‘bodyguard’ protection.

Yahoo News reports:

President Trump was found guilty on felony charges Thursday, raising potential challenges for the Secret Service responsible for protecting him just as a top Democrat is seeking to yank that protection from him.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the ranking Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee, introduced the Denying Infinite Security and Government Resources Allocated toward Convicted and Extremely Dishonorable (DISGRACED) Former Protectees Act.

“Unfortunately, current law doesn’t anticipate how Secret Service protection would impact the felony prison sentence of a protectee — even a former President,” Thompson said in a statement. “It is regrettable that it has come to this, but this previously unthought-of scenario could become our reality.”

Trump was found guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree in New York v. Trump. The charges were related to alleged payments made ahead of the 2016 presidential election to silence pornographic performer Stormy Daniels about an alleged 2006 extramarital sexual encounter with Trump. Trump denied all charges and any affair with Daniels.

But the conviction raises the possibility the presumed 2024 Republican nominee could end up being bars. That unprecedented development would raise a number of additional questions, including how his Secret Service protection would adapt.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, the agency said the outcome of the case “has no bearing on the manner in which the United States Secret Service carries out its protective mission.”

“Our security measures will proceed unchanged,” Anthony Guglielmi, chief of communications for the Secret Service, said.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has previously said the city’s Department of Corrections and the Rikers Island prison in New York are “ready” to receive Trump.

Asked if Trump would be housed by himself or with the general population, a Department of Corrections spokesman said last month, “The Department would find appropriate housing for him if he winds up in our custody.”

The New York Times reported that there had been conversations involving the Secret Service and other law enforcement about how to move and protect Trump if he were briefly jailed for contempt, but the challenge of a longer prison sentence has yet to be addressed.

This could be in part because, even though the sentencing is in July, a series of lengthy Trump appeals that could rise to the Supreme Court would likely follow.

A.T. Smith, a former deputy director at the agency, said that while the territory may be uncharted, the Secret Service would not allow the mission to be compromised.

“They’ll rise to the occasion. They will work with the counterparts that may become necessary depending upon the judge’s decision … in order to accomplish their mission, which is the protection of the former president,” he told The Telegraph.

One potential impediment to that protection could come from Thompson and the Democrats, who introduced a bill in the House to strip Secret Service protection from convicted felons sentenced to prison.
