Under Title 18 U.S. Code Section 242, “Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any personin any State,Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States,” shall be fined and (or) imprisoned for up to one year.
The conspirators clearly didn’t deprive Donald Trump of the right to run for president but they tried very hard to do so. Under the federal conspiracy law (Title 18 U.S. Code Section 371) it is a crime to conspire to commit any other federal crime. It is a felony punishable by up to five years in jail.
The evidence shows — and should be used in court to prove — that at least the leaders of the conspiracy — Strzok, Priestap, Comey, Brennan, and probably Haspel — should all be brought to justice for their abuse of power.
Make no mistake: their abuse of power is the worst in American history. Nothing any president has done even comes close. Durham and Attorney General Barr need to throw the book at them.
