Charges Against Trump ‘May’ Result in Death Penalty

One of the charges against Donald Trump may carry the death penalty.

“Conspiracy Against Rights,” 18 U.S.C § 241, was created in 1870 to combat the Ku Klux Klan and protect the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments.

According to leftists, Trump’s actions against the results of the 2020 election thwarted the ability of people to vote.

The law reads, “If death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.”

The clause is allegedly connected to Ashli Babbitt’s death due to the events of January 6.

Special Counsel Jack Smith likely believes January 6 was directly related to Trump’s claims about the 2020 presidential election.

Democrats also believe Trump’s actions resulted in the deaths of other protestors and Capitol Police officers, supposedly linking the law’s clause to Trump.

Reporting from PJ Media:

This law was clearly designed to go after Klansmen who acted to prevent free black men from exercising the right to vote during the Reconstruction era. It calls for fines or up to ten years in prison “if two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same.” It calls for the same penalties “if two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured.”
