Hirono Wants to Prosecute Trump After He Leaves Office

On MSNBC’s Live today, Sen. Mazie Hirono said Pres. Trump should be prosecuted after he leaves office.

Asked if the Dept. of Justice should prosecute Trump after the presidency, Hirono replied, “I certainly think that we—you know, when I look at the 800 or so former prosecutors who say there’s enough in the Mueller report to indict the president were it not for the fact that he’s a sitting president, I would say that is grounds for those kinds of further actions.

“In addition, the other investigations that are going on regarding the president’s activities in his organizations should also continue, including the state of New York, the prosecutors in the Southern District of New York, all of those kinds of activities should go on, so yes, he needs to be held accountable,” she added.
