Swalwell: When Trump Is Out of Office, ‘America Needs a Presidential Crimes Commission’

Rep. Eric Swalwell is making it clear what he thinks should happen once President Donald Trump leaves office.

“I don’t say this lightly: when we escape this Trump hell, America needs a Presidential Crimes Commission,” Swalwell wrote on Twitter Friday evening.

The Democratic lawmaker continued, “It should be made up of independent prosecutors who look at those who enabled a corrupt president,” citing, “Example 1: Sabotaging the mail to win an election.”

See his post below:

Swalwell’s remarks regarding the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) come after Trump said this week during an interview, “[Democrats] want $25 billion for the post office. Now, they need that money in order to have the post office work so it could take all of these millions and millions of ballots.”

Trump added, “Now, in the meantime, they aren’t getting there. By the way, those are just two items. But if they don’t get those two items, that means you can’t have universal mail-in voting, because they’re not equipped to have it.”

The president has made it clear that he believes if there is universal mail-in voting in the upcoming presidential election, then there will be “the greatest fraud in the history of elections.”

His remarks regarding voting and the USPS has drawn criticism from several Democrats, including former President Barack Obama.

“What we’ve never seen before is a president say, ‘I’m going to try to actively kneecap the postal service to encourage voting, and I will be explicit about the reason I’m doing it,'” Obama said during a podcast this week, adding, “That’s sort of unheard of, right?”

Additionally, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) urged Trump to “immediately cease his assault on the postal service, make clear that he will allow the 2020 election to proceed without his sabotage tactics,” as IJR reported.

A congressional aide indicated on Friday that the U.S. Postal Service’s internal watchdog will be investigating the postal service’s woes, and will also be looking into whether there are any conflicts of interest that involve the new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, as IJR also reported.

On Friday, the USPS also warned 46 states that it cannot promise all ballots will be delivered in time to be counted ahead of the election in November.

  1. Where was this homo when Ohomo was doing his best to destroy the country? Ohomo still needs to hang for treason.

  2. “He set us back 100 years in race relations.” Confused Boob The Projectionist

    Yeah, for his unforgivable crime of being born black.

    1. The real projectionist here is you and your communist/fascist party confuction. The truth has ALWAYS eluded you and ALL your comrades because it doesn’t get you the power and control you desire. obutticus did set us back 100 years in race relations and that is a fact you communist drone.

  3. What we really have here is the Democrats kneecapping the election process by promoting mail-in ballots and making sure there are no security measures in place. Why wait for Trump to leave office? Obama and Hillary and Joe the Boob have committed enough crimes to go ahead now. We can call that person a special prosecutor, sound familiar?

  4. Oh, I think there should be plenty of investigation. We need to find out what crap Donald and his pals have been up to. But, short of actual bribery or aiding foreign enemies, I don’t think there should be prosecutions of Donald, Mike, Betsey, Wilbur, etc.

    1. Hey dickbert we should start with obutticus and all his minions first. He basically ignored the Constitution and every black boy could have been his son. He set us back 100 years in race relations. Then tere is always biden’s son and all the deals with china that gave them our manufacturing.

  5. A certain Derpbert doesn’t want administrations investigated for criminal acts.

    While this may serve his needs, how does it serve precedent or justice?

    Most administrations have higher priorities (one would hope) yet there’s always hope that they will reach back far enough to obtain justice.

  6. Julia certainly does have mouth on her. No lady that’s for sure. Afraid she is going to be hospitalized after November.

    1. Never assume someone’s gender nowadays.

      “Julia” might be an unemployed, middle-aged guy who’s fondling himself with one hand and typing with another.

  7. trump is a dirty rotten bastard! he thinks he is meticulously planning this, well this jerk is going to lose by a landslide come nov

    1. You are right, biden and the Jamican/Indian are going to lose by a least 50-60 electorial votes.

  8. I think it would be dereliction of duty if he does not. Trump supporters can drag up all the past they want, but never, never has there been as blatant disregard of the Constitution as there has been over the last 4 years. Anyone that does not see that is a traitor to this Country. Period!
    We are governed by laws and adherence to the greatest political document ever written.
    Can anyone, except the 1%, say this Country is better off than it was 4 years ago?

    1. Floyd the boy lies again. You had it right but not the right regime. obutticus the nero wannabe disregarded the Constitution every time he open his mouth and with his pen and phone signed almost all his legislation into law by himself without the approval of congress.

  9. Swill Well had better watch for what he wishes. His name may come up and then the squirming shall begin.

  10. No swalwell we need a congressional and senate crime commision to prosicute crooks lime you

  12. Gee Swallow, why wait until AFTER Trump leaves office? There’s this thing called Obamagate and the first flunky has plead guilty. Hopefully not the last.

  13. Hmm. Maybe Swallow was farting when he came up with this. It means what he thinks with was working. Gut feelings, right Eric?

  14. Swalwell- the guy who reminds me of a little boy with snots under his nose. But then again there are more Dems that have that look besides him.

  15. I’d rather not see America get into the mold of each administration taking the past administration into criminal court. Even one as corrupt as Trump’s.
