Former FBI Agent: Arrest Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf for Obstruction of Justice

The Right Side

How desperate are the Democrats? I have to believe the word is “extremely”!

When you are willing to violate federal immigration laws and violate Obstruction of Justice laws (Title 18 Sec 1505 USC), not for the purpose of protecting US citizens, not to protect a relative, not to protect “illegal” immigrants, but to protect and aid “criminal” illegal aliens, just to secure “re-election” votes, that’s the “deplorable” Hillary liked to use!

I don’t care what any Obama appointee, Deputy AG, or Assistant US Attorney says, there is probable cause to issue an arrest warrant for the arrest of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, for Obstruction of Justice, for alerting criminal, illegal aliens that the “law” is coming.

If just one of those 800 who eluded arrest, harms a lawman or a citizen, it’s on Libby’s shoulders!

Some federal prosecutors, who resist authorizing the filing of a warrant for a multitude of reasons, often claim, “There’s no likelihood of a conviction”. I would say, “That’s not for you to decide, it’s up to the jury”!

There is PC to indict now and if one of the 800 who eluded capture is willing to testify that the reason he ran is because of Libby’s warning, the chance of conviction just skyrocketed, and I’d bet anything I could find one who would cooperate in return for “consideration” for his/her cooperation.

Should Libby be arrested?

Arrest Libby for putting ICE and Border Patrol Agents at risk! Let the rest of the Sanctuary Cities understand there is no such legal entity as a Sanctuary City!

Make sure agents ask every illegal they arrest if they ran because of the warning Libby gave them!

Since there is no such thing legally as a Sanctuary City, why in the world would Democrat elected officials welcome lawbreakers into their jurisdictions? For one reason only… Votes?!

They are so desperate they would put their own family at risk by welcoming rapists, drug dealers, murderers, gang members here illegally… just for votes! Now that is desperate!

So desperate, that one candidate even “bought” the Democrat National Committee for herself to assure nomination as president and she still lost! Go figure!

And, since the Democrats seem to be very concerned about interference in our election process, I’m sure they will support a Federal Voter ID Card with a chip! How about it Republicans? How about a voter ID card for this year midterms?

I believe Republicans win in the states with voter ID every time! Honest elections are not supported by Democrats today.

They’re far too desperate.

  • Well-said, Mr. DiLaura. I have been sounding the alarm for quite some time about the brazen disregard that Governor Brown and all of his Democrat partners in crime have been showing for President Trump’s orders to comply with Federal Immigration Laws. It is a violation of Federal Law to harbor and protect illegal immigrants, and Oakland Mayor Schaaf went one further by publicly announcing her intentions to warn the illegals about the impending ICE raids. She put the safety of the American citizens at risk to push a political agenda – and I agree with you; they thought they could establish a new electorate since the old one got hip to their misdoings. Disgraceful behavior for government officials who are paid to make decisions in the best interest of America, and in the best interest of American citizens.

    Federal Immigration and Nationality Act Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii)

    Any person who encourages or induces an alien to reside; knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact, that such residence is in violation of law, shall be punished as provided – for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs fined under title 18 . . . imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.

    Section 274 Felonies under the Federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):
    A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government)
    commits a Federal Felony when she or he knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions. It is also a felony to encourage or induce an alien to come to or reside in the U.S., knowing or recklessly disregarding the fact that the alien’s entry or residence is in violation of the law. This crime applies to any person, rather than just employers of illegal aliens.


    ‘Harboring’ means any conduct that tends to substantially facilitate an alien to remain in the United States illegally. The penalty for “Felony Harboring” is a fine and imprisonment for up to five years. Where the crime causes serious bodily injury or places the life of any person in jeopardy, the penalty is a fine and up to twenty years’ imprisonment. If the criminal “Smuggling” or “Harboring” results in the death of any person, the penalty can include life imprisonment. Convictions for aiding, abetting, or conspiracy to commit alien smuggling or harboring, carry the same penalties. Courts can impose consecutive prison sentences for each alien smuggled or harbored.
