Excuse me, but …

If we can believe anything Cornell Law tells us, then an agreement between two or more people to commit an illegal act, along with an intent to achieve the agreement’s goal is a conspiracy.  Conspiracy to violate the law is a felony.  Most U.S. jurisdictions also require an overt act toward furthering the agreement.  An overt act is a statutory requirement, not a constitutional one, as outlined in Whitfield v. United States, 453 U.S. 209 (2005).  The illegal act is the conspiracy’s “target offense.”

Conspiracy generally carries a penalty on its own.  In addition, conspiracies allow for derivative liability where conspirators can also be punished for the illegal acts carried out by other members, even if they were not directly involved.  Thus, where one or more members of the conspiracy committed illegal acts to further the conspiracy’s goals, all members of the conspiracy may be held accountable for those acts.

Where no one has actually committed a criminal act, the punishment varies.  Some conspiracy statutes assign the same punishment for conspiracy as for the target offense.  Others impose lesser penalties.  Conspiracy applies to both civil and criminal offenses. For example, one may conspire to commit murder, armed robbery, or fraud.

In particular … 18 U.S.C. § 371 provides that:

If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. If, however, the offense, the commission of which is the object of the conspiracy, is a misdemeanor only, the punishment for such conspiracy shall not exceed the maximum punishment provided for such misdemeanor.

Seeking Justice

So, now we should be curious about Catholic Nun Norma Pimentel, who heads the Catholic Charities Rio Grande Valley (CCRGV) as the individual who CONSPIRES with the Biden Administration to purchase airfare for illegal aliens departing Brownsville, McAllen, Laredo airports for various points northward throughout the United States, in contravention of federal law, and who then submits claims for reimbursement from the public treasury for the payment of these illegal acts.  Why hasn’t federal or Texas authorities arrested Sister Norma and charged her with conspiracy and fraud against the United States?

Note: It is highly doubtful that anyone could charge Joe Biden with conspiracy to defraud the United States; high-ranking politicians are always protected from such charges.  However, the individual who set aside $5 million to reimburse CCRGV for their airfare costs could be charged since the set aside is an overt act of a conspiracy. OR do we still have one set of laws for Democrats and another set of laws for everyone else?  I suspect this is true, complicated by the fact that every law enforcement officer (police, prosecutor) (federal, state, county) in the Rio Grande Valley is Hispanic.  Will any of these people arrest a Hispanic Nun?

Well, not yet … not yet.

  1. In a perfect world this Nun, Hispanic or not would be prosecuted. I highly doubt anyone will pay for this injustice. No one paid for the lies they told regarding the Russian Collusion. When are lies against, proven lies against a sitting president acceptable regarding Trump? They still want his head.

    RICO was set up to prosecute crimes against the mafia. I am just saying here, too bad we could not prove the racketeering going on in our government with the mafia – who just may be the people facilitating these nighttime flights and the government, or some person in the government with Biden’s knowledge knows and is funding this sherrod. If, and that would be a huge if, and if others in the government would stop being wimps and tell the truth I suspect that those involved, not limited to Biden and Harris could be prosecuted under RICO.

    What a glorious day that would be for Americans, but it would only happen Mustang in a perfect world. I will dream on!

    1. Selective prosecution is one reason so many Americans no longer trust their government. No one likes the double standard, but that’s what the Democrats/communists offer us today. Rules for them, and rules for everyone else. It is simply un-American.

    1. Biden’s executive decision to ignore federal law makes him part of a conspiracy to violate the law. Elizabeth is probably better versed on this than I am, but THAT would seem to be an IMPEACHABLE offense. Where is the GOP?

  2. Yes, it is an impeachable offense, Mustang. Furthermore, when Obama pulled his stunt with Libya where was the GOP then? They had the majority. Some have speculated that the GOP is waiting for mid-term elections, but I still doubt they will do the people’s business or call Biden and others to account. This is why so many first-time congressmen/women leave after their first term. The swamp won’t let them do a thing.
