High Crimes and Felonies, sent to the White House today …


Dear Mr. Trump:

Acting as a Grand Jury, with millions of fellow Americans serving as co-Grand Jurors, I do hereby accuse you of the following High Crime and Felonies:

1. The Hate Crime of pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accords, an act of hate toward all inhabitants of the Earth, present and future, human and non-human

2. The Hate Crime of depriving 23 million of your fellow citizens of health care coverage, an act of hate against the poor and underprivileged, so that you and your rich cronies can pay fewer dollars in taxes

3. The Hate Crime of lying to the American electorate in promising to bring back jobs, an act of hate against the gullible and all the others who trusted you were honest

The penalty for such offenses includes going down in history as the worst president this country has ever had, bar none. Because your crimes threaten to end history altogether, you may sadly never endure the full infamy that your crimes merit. It will therefore be your own descendants who suffer from destruction of their world’s climate, from the consequences of your uncaring about other people, and from an awakening of understanding among those who mistakenly put their trust in you.

Very truly yours,

Bruce J. Berger
