Here’s the problem – despite this being I direct violation of 18 U.S. Code § 879 (Threats against former Presidents and certain other persons), absolutely nothing will happen or be done about what Trump suggested.

On the other hand, if a regular civilian stood up and suggested the same thing, or posted it on FB, or wrote an op-Ed suggesting it, they would have the secret service knocking on their door within hours.

This is what is wrong – technically, any regular citizen could also file these charges, and they will be dismissed, if it even came to a hearing.

That is why someone like Trump (or Alex Jones, or any other crazy politician) gets away with these statements, because they know nothing will happen to them.

This is beyond.
