Sunday, a racist black Democrat and former impeachment manager proposed a long-term solution for dealing with former President Donald Trump. Everyone should pay close attention, as the Democratic Party will operate in this manner in the future.
Stacey Plaskett, a non-voting Democratic congressional delegate from the Virgin Islands who served as House manager during Trump’s second impeachment, was a guest on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show” when a momentary lapse of the tongue raised grave concerns.
The ranking member of the House Judiciary Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government discussed the federal indictment against the president for possessing classified materials.
Plaskett argued to host Jonathan Capehart, leaning toward the fallacy of “guilty until proven innocent,” that “having Trump not only have the codes but also the classified information for Americans and being able to share it with anyone who comes through at his resort should be terrifying to all Americans.”
She responded without hesitation, “And he needs to be shot — stopped.”
In response to the remark, many individuals questioned the lack of corporate media outrage over such a blatant “incitement to violence” and whether or not the U.S. Secret Service would visit her home for endangering the life of a former president.

Obviously, this was not Plaskett’s only controversial remark during the MSNBC interview; she also had a few things to say about Republican-led initiatives to reign in potential federal government power excesses, particularly a weaponized Justice Department.
The delegate criticized the GOP’s evidence-based claims of a two-tiered justice system by accusing them of attempting to operate “above the law,” despite serving on the subcommittee in charge of those investigations.
“We know that this is a reckless man, who believes that he is above the law, that the rules do not apply to him — and that’s the thing that I’m concerned about with many of my colleagues in the GOP — that they believe that there is a two-tiered system. But the two-tiered system is not to punish them more,” she argued. “It’s to — they want it to allow them to get away with more than everyday Americans.”
This was the same member who had previously demanded the arrest of journalist Matt Taibbi for mistakenly referring to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) instead of the Center for Internet Security (CIS) in sworn testimony. CONTINUE READING…
