Some GOP Congress Members Could Face 15 Years and Disqualification From Office

Revelations about Republican Members of Congress, seeking Presidential Pardons, for their Roles in Trump's attempted Coup, could Disqualify them from Office and Jail time, according to a Top Legal Scholar.

Ambassador Norm Eisen, who served as Co-counsel for the House Judiciary Committee during Trump's first impeachment, shared his thoughts on Twitter following the hearing.

"Congressmen helping Trump on & before 1/6 & then demanding pardons. Makes me think of 18 USC 201: A public official who corruptly seeks anything of value in return for an official act or colluding in fraud shall be imprisoned for up to 15 years & disqualified from office," Eisen wrote.

Here's the List:

Andy Biggs (R-AZ, 5th District)

Mo Brooks (R-AL, 5th District)

Matt Gaetz (R-FL, 1st District)

Louie Gohmert (R-TX, 1st District)

Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA, 14th District)

Scott Perry (R-PA, 10th District )

And they may Not be the Only People with Legal Liability under the Statue.

Law Prof. Jennifer Taub, Author of the Book, Big Dirty Money: Making White Collar Criminals Pay, wrote that it may also apply to Jeffrey Clark.

"I just heard what sounds like bribery of a public official under 18 USC 201 -- when Jeff Clark allegedly said he would not take Rosen's job as Acting AG if Rosen and the Acting DAG would sign the lie-filled letter to be sent to Georgia," she wrote.
