MSNBC Analyst: Use Coronavirus To Prosecute Trump For ‘Negligent Homicide’

More than 100,000 people around the world have been personally affected by the Coronavirus and subsequent travel bans, closures, curfew laws, and lockdowns have impacted millions more.

According to the latest Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) figures, more than 8,000 people have died to the COVID-19, with more than 110 of those deaths coming from inside the United States.

In a series of tweets, analyst Glenn Kirschner said blame for these deaths should rest squarely on the shoulders of U.S. President Donald J. Trump.

The analyst said he might also prosecute Trump who “may have criminal exposure for some level of negligent homicide or voluntary/involuntary manslaughter for the way he’s mishandled the Coronavirus crisis,” the Daily Caller reports.

The report adds:

He went on to tout his own career as a prosecutor, saying that he had always been “on the lookout for novel ways to apply homicide … liability in an attempt to appropriately and ethically hold accountable those who were responsible for taking the life of a fellow human being.”

Kirschner concluded by accusing Trump of “negligent/grossly negligent (and/or possibly intentional) mishandling” of the response to coronavirus and claiming that the issue was “thorny” and “nuanced” but that all possible “criminal charges will have to be investigated.”
