There is no Sanctuary Clause in our nation's constitution.
elony” appears exactly twice, both times capitalized, in our consitution
. Its second appearance is in Article IV, Section 2, Clause 2
("Rendition Clause"). Its first is in Article I, Section 6, Clause 1
, which says
- The Senators and Representatives.... shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same....
Felony usually means any federal, state, or local offense punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year. The United States Code sections dealing with bribery, graft, and conflicts of interest (Title 18, Part I, Chapter 11), make willful commissions of bribery such a felony.
For example, when a Culturally Corrupt Demobriberat Congressman admits on videotape to willfully "keep[ing] secret what the government contends was his corrupt role in getting his children a cut of [his] communications company's deal for work in Africa" — a deal he willfully planned to secure with his $100,000 bribe of a high-ranking, foreign government official (e.g., Nigeria's vice president) — a deal undoubtedly requiring coordination with or assistance of federal agencies that administer the African Growth Opportunity Act — it's a felony:
- Section 203. Compensation to Members of Congress, officers, and others in matters affecting the Government
(a) Whoever, otherwise than as provided by law for the proper discharge of official duties, directly or indirectly demands, seeks, receives, accepts, or agrees to receive or accept any compensation for any representational services, as agent or attorney or otherwise, rendered or to be rendered either personally or by another at a time when such person is a Member of Congress [or] Member of Congress Elect... in relation to any proceeding, application, request for a ruling or other determination, contract, claim,... or other particular matter in which the United States is a party or has a direct and substantial interest, before any department [or] agency... or knowingly gives, promises, or offers any compensation for any such representational services rendered or to be rendered at a time when the person to whom the compensation is given, promised, or offered, is or was such a Member [or] Member Elect... shall be subject to the penalties set forth in section 216 of this title.
Section 216. Penalties and injunctions
(a) The punishment for an offense under section 203, 204, 205, 207, 208, or 209 of this title is the following: (1) Whoever engages in the conduct constituting the offense shall be imprisoned for not more than one year or fined in the amount set forth in this title, or both. (2) Whoever willfully engages in the conduct constituting the offense shall be imprisoned for not more than five years or fined in the amount set forth in this title, or both.
There is no privilege from arrest, indictment, subpoena, investigation, or other prosecutorial process for any person in our country, including Demobriberat Congressmen, when appropriate authorities have sworn under oath there is probable cause to arrest, indict, subpoena, investigate, or otherwise prosecute such person. As FindLaw.com notes,
- Privilege From Arrest clause is practically obsolete. It applies only to arrests in civil suits, which were still common in this country at the time the Constitution was adopted. It does not apply to service of process in either civil or criminal cases. Nor does it apply to arrest in any criminal case. The phrase "treason, felony or breach of the peace" is interpreted to withdraw all criminal offenses from the operation of the privilege.
San Fran Nan, with her Team Malfeasors, PAC to the Federal Law Violators,
and Center for Taxpayer Bilking by the Common Crook
, instead of babbling about checks and balances
which amount to sanctuary for a criminal suspect or trying to offer him a mere slap on the wrist
, would do well to read up on these provisions and statutes.
