Misprision of Felony and the Trump Whitehouse

Traitor - Demotivational Poster

Many people in the Trump Whitehouse may also be guilty of treason. Failure to report a crime is called misprision of felony. Look it up. Anyone in the Trump administration who knows of criminal activity by Trump or his administration and fails to report it to law enforcement is guilty of a crime and should be arrested and tried for TREASON!

This offense, however, requires active concealment of a known felony rather than merely failing to report it. ... The Federal misprision of felony statute is usually only used in prosecutions against defendants who have a special duty to report a crime, such as a government official.

18 U.S. Code § 4 - Misprision of felony

Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 684Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(G), Sept. 13, 1994108 Stat. 2147.)

Nixon was a lot less evil than Trump as was his administration. Nixon did not try to sell out to a foreign government. Nixon broke some laws but he was still a loyal American. 

In the aftermath of Richard Nixon’s resignation, Watergate continued to claim victims.
The final toll included:

  • one presidential resignation
  • one vice-presidential resignation – although Agnew’s crimes were unrelated to Watergate
  • 40 government officials indicted or jailed
  • H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman (White House staff), resigned 30 April 1973, subsequently jailed
  • John Dean (White House legal counsel), sacked 30 April 1973, subsequently jailed
  • John Mitchell, Attorney-General and Chairman of the Committee to Re-elect the President (CREEP), jailed
  • Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy (ex-White House staff), planned the Watergate break-in, both jailed
  • Charles Colson, special counsel to the President, jailed
  • James McCord (Security Director of CREEP), jailed
