Watergate Prosecutor Says Georgia Case Could Send Trump to Prison

A prosecutor who worked on the Watergate case against President Richard Nixon says that the investigation in Georgia against Donald Trump has the potential to put the 45th president behind bars.

According to The Hill:

“I think that’s enough. If you’re asking me which of the cases right now, which one is going to send Donald Trump to prison, that’s the case,” Nick Akerman told MSNBC on Sunday, referring to a January 2021 call between Trump and Georgia’s secretary of state.

“If I had to put my money on one prosecution that’s going to go forward here that would send Donald Trump to jail, it’s Georgia,” Akerman, a former prosecutor with the Watergate Special Prosecution Force under Archibald Cox and Leon Jaworski, said. “No question about it.”

Fulton County in Georgia has convened a special grand jury to investigate Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in the state. The case focuses on a call between Trump and Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger where the president pushed to “find” 11,780 votes to overturn Biden’s victory in the Peach State.

In Georgia, the investigative panel began hearing from witnesses this month, including Raffensperger. The special grand jury will ultimately recommend whether county prosecutors should prosecute Trump criminally for election interference.

However, Akerman, whose work probing an illegal break-in at the Democratic National Committee’s headquarters in 1972 substantiated ties to Nixon’s reelection campaign and led to the former president’s resignation, admitted the Nixon case occurred in a vastly different political climate than Trump’s.

Akerman also said the tape-recorded evidence of the phone call between Trump and Raffensperger gives prosecutors an extremely strong case.

“What’s significant with those tapes is — when you put it into the context of all the evidence the Jan. 6 committee has uncovered, you put that together — Donald Trump has zero defense in Georgia,” he added.

Well, the Republicans thought Hillary would go to jail for Benghazi. She didn’t. Now the Democrats want Trump to go to jail for nothing. I am so tired of the double standard.

If the Republicans had anything on Hillary Clinton, she would have been prosecuted by Trump’s Justice Department. Trump’s problems are the result of Republicans who are now testifying against Trump. Trump tried to overthrow the duly elected government of the United States. That’s treason.

Nick Akerman is right. Trump clearly committed a crime by asking Georgia’s Secretary of State to find enough votes to swing Georgia to Trump.

These idiot; un-American dems just can’t get over D. Trump.
Although he did more to lift America back up out of the decline we have experienced since the Clinton/Bush days.(In actuality it goes back much further) And this is why so many repubs are against him as well; because he showed America the true face of both parties, that they both (RINO’s and dems) have been pushing us toward a one world government.
At the same time they are happy to “forget” all the evil the dems and their corrupt admins. have released on us; especially the infringement on all of our basic rights.

Sounds very much like an extremely biased opinion to me. Especially since we now know, thanks to a guilty plea, and other findings, the election was rigged. Trump was right. If the illegally cast votes could be overturned and the other bad behavior of the election officials is verifed via a special investigation, such as 2000 Mules, once all the garbage votes were kicked out, Trump had a landslide win. “Finding” the needed votes would simply mean counting ONLY the real, actual, legal votes. Yes, indeed, charge and prosecute. Then turn all of your “evidence” over to the Trump legal team. Just what we all want to see.

I love that scenario about Trump going to jail over a phone call. Where’s the case against Hillary Clinton creating a falsehood about Russian influence over the 2016 election? So, her attorney got off with a jury of Clinton supporters. That’s on John Durham’s ineffective prosecution; failure to change venue and completely vettte the jury members.

“Watergate” was a “break in”.

Trump’s call offers no prosecutorial evidence of a crime, whatsoever!

Watergate was a crime

Jan 6 Committee came up with nothing! There was no criminal behavior on the part of Pres Trump… whatsoever!

“The Hill” is simply spewing Leftist propaganda. Bad form, Hill!

SO, explain how Hilliary CLINTON is not under indictment already for her involvement in CRIMINAL activity with a foreigner to give false information in attempt to stop the election and indict and impeach Trump based upon lies? Explain how Hillary Clinton is not in prison for having thousands of Classified files on a personal server that was accessed by her MAID? Explain how it is ONLY republicans and conservatives who are attacked by people like this man Ackerman?
This is POLITICAL not about the law at all. Until we see the dems behind bars and prosecuted there can be NO FURTHER prosecution.

I believe if Trump goes to jail and all the crooked Democrats remain free that would lead to the beginning of a revolution.
