TDS: Schumer Introducing Bill Stripping Trump Of Immunity

It won’t pass the House. It might not pass the Senate. If, by some reason it did pass and made it to Biden’s desk and he signed it the Supreme Court would kill it. It is seriously deranged how much Trump has gotten into their heads, and really, isn’t it un-Constitutional to try and pass a law that targets exactly one person? If the law is more broad, well, Chuck should remember that it would leave Biden open to prosecution

Schumer pushing bill to strip Trump of court-granted immunity

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced Monday that he and other Senate Democrats will work to advance legislation to strip former President Trump of the immunity he was granted under a recent Supreme Court ruling protecting a president’s official acts from criminal prosecution.

Schumer, invoking Congress’s powers to regulate the courts, said Democrats are working on legislation to classify Trump’s efforts to subvert the results of the 2020 election as “unofficial acts” so they do not merit immunity from criminal prosecution under the high court’s recent 6-3 decision.

“They incorrectly declared that former President Trump enjoys broad immunity from criminal prosecution for actions he took while in office. They incorrectly declared that all future presidents are entitled to a breathtaking level of immunity so long as their conduct is ostensibly carried out in their official capacity as president,” Schumer said on the Senate floor.

Schumer said the court’s conservative justices had “effectively placed a crown on Donald Trump’s head,” putting him above the law and making him “in many ways untouchable.”

“I will work with my colleagues on legislation classifying Trump’s election subversion acts as unofficial acts not subject to immunity,” he announced. “We’re doing this because we believe that in America no president should be free to overturn an election against the will of the people, no matter what the conservative justices may believe.”

Hmm, sounds like Chuck is trying to subvert Democracy! by refusing to comply with the rulings of the Judicial Branch, to use Democrat language. Regulating the courts does not allow the Senate to disregard/change a Supreme Court ruling, nor strip Constitutionally guaranteed immunity. The only way to change immunity is with an Amendment, and, you can bet if the People and States are voting on it they’ll remove immunity from Congress.

This is just straight up lawfare. And an attempt at talking points, since it will never get a vote in the House. Though, it could be interesting if the House would take the bill and change it to specifically add on that Joe Biden is no immune for his time in office, and see how Democrats vote.

    Democrats may as well just pass an amendment to the constitution that only applies to one person in all of history: Trump.

    Could the democraticals be any more blatant in their efforts to steal the 2024 election?

    It’s not about who gets the most votes but who gets the most ballots and who “counts” them.

      WASHINGTON D.C. — Republicans caused outrage and horror today among people who would never cheat in elections with the introduction of a new ‘Stop Cheating In Elections’ Bill.

      Congressional Republicans insisted that the bill would simply prevent cheating in elections and ensure that they are fair, while people who would never cheat insisted that the problematic bill targeted them.

      “I want to be clear. This bill is racist, xenophobic, transphobic, and possibly arachnophobic,” Said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “It’s not the ‘no cheating’ part that bothers us because obviously we would never, ever cheat. But it’s outrageous that Republicans would want to take measures to stop us from cheating. Which we never ever do.”

      In a statement released today, the White House blasted Congressional Republicans for trying to push through a “totally unnecessary” bill instead of much more important bills that President Biden has pledged support for, such as the “No Furry Left Behind” Bill, the “Legalize Crack and Bribery” Bill, and the “It’s Not Weird To Date Your Brother’s Widow” Bill.

      At publishing time, the Democrats were hard at work building Congressional ballot drop boxes to vote on the “Stop Cheating In Elections” Bill and told the press they were “very confident” the Bill would not pass.

    William Teach: Schumer Introducing Bill Stripping Trump Of Immunity

    It wouldn’t necessarily be unconstitutional as the Supreme Court largely left open what is an “official act”, which can be subject to statutory law.

    William Teach: If the law is more broad, well, Chuck should remember that it would leave Biden open to prosecution

    Well, duh.

    The president, like any citizen, should be “liable to prosecution and punishment in the ordinary course of law;” otherwise, instead of Mr. President, you may as well call him, His Excellency, Sacred and Inviolable, may peace be upon Him.

    • Brother John says:

      Ex post facto.

    • david7134 says:

      Z, child,
      So, you approve of the prosecution of Biden for numerous crimes including murder.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Yes! If prosecutors deem that proper, of course. They would have to get a grand jury to hand down indictments and then a conviction by a jury.

        According to the Supreme Court ruling he has immunity for any official actions.

        If the DOJ has evidence for murders or other serious crimes that happened before Biden was President he could be in trouble.

        In the US only the President is above the law.

      • Zachriel says:

        If Biden unlawfully shot someone on 5th avenue, then sure, he should be held criminally liable.

    Our Dear Mr Teach suffers from TDS: Trump Devotion Syndrome

    The RNC hurriedly released the Repubicun Platform to counter the bad press their boy is getting over his Project2025. (All CAPS is a hat tip from the RNC to Trump’s tweets).

    1. SEAL THE BORDER, AND STOP THE MIGRANT INVASION (lie; will he allow workers to enter? international flights?)
    2. CARRY OUT THE LARGEST DEPORTATION OPERATION IN AMERICAN HISTORY (lie; 15-25 million to be deported!, 10,000-15,000/day x 4 years)
    3. END INFLATION, AND MAKE AMERICA AFFORDABLE AGAIN (lie; a president does not control prices; the fed can tighten the money supply today by raising the interest rate to 20%; Congress can put limits of profits; inflation decreases during Repubicun recesses)
    5. STOP OUTSOURCING, AND TURN THE UNITED STATES INTO A MANUFACTURING SUPERPOWER (lie; he had 4 years to do this and made no difference)
    6. LARGE TAX CUTS FOR WORKERS, AND NO TAX ON TIPS! (lie; Trump tax cuts are for the wealthy)
    ARMS (its in the Constitution, so it’s his job; he has a poor record)
    GREAT IRON DOME MISSILE DEFENSE SHIELD OVER OUR ENTIRE COUNTRY — ALL MADE IN AMERICA (Trump is part of the global right-wing authoritarianism movement with Putin, Modi, Xi, Kim, Erdogan, Orban, whose objective is to defang NATO; Trump would turn Ukraine over to Putin; thanks Dumbass Don for telling the world the US cannot protect against missile attacks; how many trillions would it cost?; how will you pay for it with your tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations?)
    9. END THE WEAPONIZATION OF GOVERNMENT AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE (lie; stop committing crimes is the answer!!)
    VIOLENCE, AND LOCK UP VIOLENT OFFENDERS (lie; migrants commit fewer crimes per capita than American citizens)
    AGAIN. (big lie; jeez; where will you find the trillions for this – from the boom in the Donald economy?; you had four years)
    12. STRENGTHEN AND MODERNIZE OUR MILITARY, MAKING IT, WITHOUT QUESTION, THE STRONGEST AND MOST POWERFUL IN THE WORLD (lie; the US military is, without question, the most largest, strongest and most powerful in the world; it’s Putin running all over Asia and Europe begging for help against little Ukraine)
    13. KEEP THE U.S. DOLLAR AS THE WORLD’S RESERVE CURRENCY (the mere election of Trump and the destabilization of the Nation lessens the desirability of dollars, duh)
    CHANGES TO THE RETIREMENT AGE (big lie; Don and his dementos in the party lust for cutting SS and Medicare, not to mention the ACA, which we should be expanding)
    15. CANCEL THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE MANDATE AND CUT COSTLY AND BURDENSOME REGULATIONS (THIS they will likely do, since the ignorant right believes global warming is a hoax/scam)
    CHILDREN (THIS they will likely do, along with eliminating the Dept of Education and most federal funding of education; education of the populace is anathema to authoritarians (ask Stalin, Hitler, Mao etc)
    17. KEEP MEN OUT OF WOMEN’S SPORTS (open for debate!!)
    18. DEPORT PRO-HAMAS RADICALS AND MAKE OUR COLLEGE CAMPUSES SAFE AND PATRIOTIC AGAIN (Can the US deport citizens for their political beliefs?; even the TPC, i.e., Trump Personal Court, may object; but not to worry since Trump has plans to add 4 new justices)
    AND PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP (lie; our elections are secure; Repubicuns and MAGAts are a US minority so they need voter suppression)

    Nothing on abortion where Repubicuns much prefer a national ban, which is unpopular.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      And somehow Rimjob (aka SMF) finds something wrong with trying to build a better safer wealthier country for all its citizens.
      Imagine that!

      Bwaha! Lolgf

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      There’s nothing on abortion because abortions been decided by the Supreme Court stupid. Abortion has been left up to the states where it should have been to begin with. Abortion is not mentioned in the constitution therefore refer to amendment #10. You can’t possibly be as stupid as you’re claiming. Although as a left wing semi Nazi, racist secular religious fanatic anything’s possible with you.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Abortion Boy aka L.G.,

        The RNC didn’t mention banning abortion because they have seen how unpopular the bans are. The objective of the right is to ban ALL abortions.

        You can’t possibly be as stupid as you’re claiming. Although as a right wing fascist, racist, christian fanatic anything’s possible with you.

        from Roe v Wade in 1973:

        Inherent in the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment is a fundamental “right to privacy” that protects a pregnant woman’s choice whether to have an abortion. However, this right is balanced against the government’s interests in protecting women’s health and protecting “the potentiality of human life.”

        For nearly 50 years Supreme Courts followed Roe v Wade until the Trump Court overturned the decision, starting the free-for-all we now see. Under the original Roe states could not restrict abortion in the first trimester (12 week gestation), limited restrictions in the 2nd trimester, and absolute restriction (except for the health of the woman) in the 3rd trimester.

        Do you respect the results of referenda or amendments in individual states to allow abortions? In Florida, currently with a 6 week ban, voters will decide in November whether to enshrine a right to abortion in the state Constitution. Many women do not realize they are pregnant at 6 weeks. Will you leave Florida if the voters overturn the ban?

        93% of abortions in the US are performed by 13 weeks gestation.

        • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

          The objective of the right is to ban ALL abortions.

          please stop telling me what I think what I believe and what my objectives are. You have no idea about any of it because you’re not part of it. I know what your objectives are I know what you think and I know what you believe because you guys are on the country and you let us know.

          Do you respect the results of referenda or amendments in individual states to allow abortions?

          Why would I respect the decision to kill babies? That would be like respecting decision to kill Jews in Nazi Germany. Just because it was popular didn’t make it right nor moral.

          You don’t need to keep going over the same language time after time. You made your point. You believe in killing children I don’t basically you believe in Nazism I don’t. You want me to respect something that’s inherently more immoral and evil? You must be insane.

          You believe in a lot of immoral things that I don’t believe in. It’s all part of the makeup of the leftist party like all leftist parties communist Nazis all of you guys you always take the path of evil. That’s why every country that you create ends up with piles of bodies all over. We should be teaching women to value their children instead you’re teaching them that kill their children. We should be teaching parents and teachers to value their children instead you’re teaching them to tell their kids to have their peckers cut off. You support homos and sexual psychos but you hate Christians and Jews go figure. You just love the idea of killing hundreds of thousands of people in Russia and the Ukraine but if a cop kills a black kid in the ghetto you freak out.

          Inherent in the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment is a fundamental “right to privacy” that protects a pregnant woman’s choice whether to have an abortion. However, this right is balanced against the government’s interests in protecting women’s health and protecting “the potentiality of human life.”

          Quote opinions all you want it doesn’t make them right. Apparently the Supreme Court disagreed with its own reasoning and changed it. I’ve lived with it for how many years now you can live with it. I happen to believe that protecting the rights of an unborn American citizen is more important and protecting a woman’s choice to kill her. You always side for evil and immorality always it’s in your DNA being a Nazi/communist dog. And by the way don’t throw that protecting a woman’s health shit in with it. Any reasonable person does not intend to sacrifice the mother and is not against Women’s Health. I don’t know how you equate killing a baby with Women’s Health but for some reason you guys always do. I guess it makes you feel better lying that you’re helping somebody’s health when you’re really ending somebody’s life. Thank you for your time doctor Mengele.

          I tried to compromise with you on abortion before just to see how far you’d bend. You didn’t bend it all. I believe your final statement was you believe in abortion until birth. At that point you’re not saving a woman’s health you’re murdering a woman’s offspring and you’re encouraging her to do it too. Towards what end? For what reason? To whose benefit? Certainly not for the benefit of the child and it certainly doesn’t benefit the mother killing a baby when when the day is born. They keep telling us how much we need to import filthy disgusting dirty infected with illness foreigners to replace Americans not being born for jobs meanwhile you’ve been killing millions of them over the years.

          The only reason to do that is to erase America one American at a time

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Abortion Boy,

            I read the first bit of your diatribe.

            So you don’t support banning the “murder of babies”, yet you live in a state that permits it!! Several states do not permit any “murder of babies”.

            And you don’t believe in democratic processes even if your fellow FL citizens vote to permit abortions.

            Would you support a national ban on abortions?

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Abortion Boy,

            I read more of your bullshit. You typed: I believe your final statement was you believe in abortion until birth.

            Bullshit. As I say again and again, I agree with the findings of Roe v Wade. Abortion was permitted through the 1st trimester (where 93% of abortions are performed anyway!). Some restrictions are allowed in the 2nd trimester and the procedures can be banned in the 3rd trimester, except the state cannot choose to kill the woman. BTW dumbass, few women would carry a baby 9 mos and suddenly decide to get an abortion.

            Roe v Wade WAS the compromise. Now we have 12 red states that ban abortions for impregnated 10 yr old rape and incest victims!

            Inherent in the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment is a fundamental “right to privacy” that protects a pregnant woman’s choice whether to have an abortion. However, this right is balanced against the government’s interests in protecting women’s health and protecting “the potentiality of human life.”

      • Professor Hale says:

        It was announced just yesterday that the official position of the RNC is that Abortion is an issue for the states to decide. There is no Republican position for national abortion policy. Doesn’t matter. Democrats will still run on “Republicans want national abortion ban”, just like they ran on “Republicans ant to take away Social Security”. While I am sure some Republicans want a national ban on abortions, most do not. Most are happy with just not using federal money to subsidize the big abortion lobby and their massive corporate profits.

        Personally, I am for abortion. I think abortions for black and Hispanic people should be free, paid for by donors to planned parenthood instead of using the money to lobby the government for money, and immigrants should have mandatory abortions to continue getting benefits. At least one abortion every three months starting when they enter the country. Even if they are not pregnant. Even the men.
        BTW, Abortion is already banned in every country on the planet. Every single one. There are broad differenced for when they allow it, but every country restricts the practice. No country has the “my body, my choice” extremist policy that is championed by the Democratic party in the USA. Even under ROW V Wade, abortions were “banned”. Since then many states have become less restrictive. Democrats should be thanking Trump for making wise Supreme Court decisions that advanced the abortion “rights” for so many women. The women who have benefitted the most are the ones living in the most liberal states. So what are they still bitching about?

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          We disagree. The Republican Party will support national restrictions on abortion. They almost have to. What they have right now is a mess. They will be forced to settle on a legislative Roe v Wade. Can anyone guide us to the “massive corporate profits” gained by Big Abortion? BTW, under the permissive Roe v Wade, over 90% of abortions occurred by 13 weeks gestation.

          No doubt many conservatives would like to see fewer blacks and Hispanics and more white babies, but the reality is the opposite.

          They WILL try to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and kill Obamacare if they can.

          Of course this all depends on the new House, Senate and White House.

            What they have right now is a mess.

            Yes, a democracy, or to be correct, a constitutional republic, can be messy because people will disagree with each other.

            You, of course, want the majority to rule. You supported slavery, demonstrate hatred for Jews, had a President who ignored Nazi gassing millions…. But I digress.

            The right for an abortion is not in the Constitution, period. What is in the Constitution is the 10th Amendment..

            The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Chickenshit Lewis Man,

            Do you recognize these words?

            “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”


            No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

            Marriage is not listed in the Constitution as a right. Privacy? Contraception? Tattoos? Procreation? Travel? Hair style? Piercings? Skydiving?

            The Supreme Courts reach a consensus (even if 5-4) opinion and then search for justifications. In 1973 the Supremes found reproductive freedom as an unenumerated right as described in the 9th and 14th.

            It’s opinion bolstered with lawspeak. Much like same-sex marriage, The People will fix reproductive rights. Good laws trump the Supremes. Repubicun state politicos will work to stifle the will of the people but it will eventually catch up. States like Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, South Dakota, Florida and Kentucky (and doubtless others) will have statewide referenda and amendment votes to save women. Most blue states have laws protecting reproductive rights.

    How come you think abortion as a right is in the Constitution?

    Due process has nothing to do with privacy.

    The purpose of the BOR’s #10 is to insure that the states may adopt various laws that are not in the US Constitution. MA let’s people be forced to be vaccinated. State roads can establish speed limits. etc., etc, etc.

    The USSC merely reestablished the right of the states to have the right to govern themselves.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:


      In the Mississippi Delta, a 12 yr old girl was grabbed from her front yard and raped by a stranger. Many weeks later a trip to the ER and an ultrasound revealed the child was 10-11 weeks pregnant, at which time it was reported to police. The girl had not reported the rape to police (or her mother) at the time (as required by Mississippi law). And anyway, there are no providers in the state. The ER doctor told the mother they needed to travel to Chicago to obtain an abortion, but they didn’t have the resources for travel. The daughter is now a 13 year old mother, and a 7th grader. In poverty, in Mississippi.

      Mississippi’s abortion ban is expected to result in thousands of additional births, often to low-income, high-risk mothers. Dr. Daniel Edney, Mississippi’s top health official, tells TIME his department is “actively preparing” for roughly 4,000 additional live births this year alone.

    “But ‘glory’ doesn’t mean ‘a nice knock-down argument,’” Alice objected.

    “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”

    “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

    “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”
