Congressman Jamie Raskin raised the possibility that President Trump could be indicted on fraud and bribery charges after he leaves office.
Raskin, who plotted the impeachment of Donald Trump even before his inauguration, alluded to that possibility while testifying at Tuesday’s House Rules Committee impeachment meeting.
He countered Republican arguments that neither of the two articles of impeachment actually included crimes such as fraud or the poll-tested phrase ‘bribery.’
Raskin (D-Bad Hair) explained those arguing that the articles of impeachment are invalid because they don’t include any real ‘crimes’ amounts to an argument of “heads I win, tails you lose.”
The Democrat proceeded to fantasize about indictments sprouting from these weakly-sourced articles.
“Lots of the conduct that we plead in our specific articles alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress themselves could become part of criminal indictments later on,” argued Raskin.

Raskin’s Been Trying to Impeach Since Inauguration
raskin’s words might appear to be the ramblings of an unwell man to most people, but he should be taken quite seriously as the fringe extremists continue to take over the Democrat party.
He’s been calling for impeachment from the onset.
In fact, prior to President Trump’s inauguration day, Raskin had impeachment on the brain.
“I just know that if I’m going to vote to impeach the man at some point, I would like to be able to look him in the eye on Inauguration Day,” he said when asked if he planned on attending the event.
Raskin has also been a strong proponent of invoking the 25th Amendment as a means to remove the President from office.

Raskin’s comments are just another in a long line of evidence that the resistance party has no intention of stopping the perpetual harassment of this President.
Last week, Rep. Karen Bass told TMZ founder Harvey Levin that her Democrat colleagues would be open to impeaching President Trump again should he win reelection in 2020.
“Would you be inclined to take a second bite at the apple and reintroduce the exact same impeachment articles and then send it through again a second [time] if you have a Democratic Senate on your side?” Levin asked Bass.
“Yes, but I don’t think it would be exactly the same and here’s why,” she replied. “Because even though we are impeaching him now, there’s still a number of court cases, there’s a ton of information that could come forward.”
Worse, lawyers for House Democrats told a federal court on Monday that lawmakers are still seeking grand jury materials connected to Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian collusion.
“The committee has continued and will continue [its impeachment] investigations consistent with its own prior statements respecting their importance and purposes,” House General Counsel Douglas Letter wrote.
The investigations will continue. They plan to impeach again if Trump wins. They want to see indictments when he leaves the White House.
The Presidential harassment is never going to end unless the American people return the House of Representatives to the Republican party in 2020.
