Letter: Trump has Committed a Crime
To the Editor:
According to Wikipedia, "The First Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees free speech, and the degree to which incitement is protected speech is determined by the imminent lawless action test introduced by the 1969 Supreme Court decision in the case Brandenburg v. Ohio. The court ruled that incitement of events in the indefinite future was protected, but encouragement of 'imminent' illegal acts was not protected."
Donald Trump has openly incited people to vote twice, which is a felony. He has incited people to commit a crime which will take place no later than the first Tuesday of November. This is incitement to an imminent illegal act. Trump has broken the law and must be prosecuted.
He should be impeached and removed from office for the commission of an impeachable offense against the Constitution and against the laws of the United States. He appears to have committed a criminal act and should be prosecuted, and at least prevented from committing more criminal acts. Wake up, people! This man is using our freedoms to destroy those very freedoms. He is a danger to our nation.
