You're from the United Kingdom, keep your warped views of justice to yourself. 5 years is insanity. I voted for Trump, yet her minor disruption at best deserved nothing more than removal from the venue and telling her to go home. 1 year in jail would be laughable. Disorderly conduct is the most corrupt charge there is you can get it for anything. Literally piss off the cop and you will get a DC charge, it's over broad in interpretation and should be repealed.

For the last time there is NO punishment yet. The 1 year in prison / fine is the max she can receive. How about we wait to see the sentence first?


For the last time...sentencing is decided by the judge...The bringing of charges and active prosecution, DOJ Attorney and all was decided by the Department of Justice that Jeff Sessions was ridiculously appointed to.

Code Pink, The Tea Party and every other right and left wing organization protested and disrupted public proceedings of the Obama Administration at every turn, yet he never had them arrested and charged.

This was offensive to the spirit of democracy. That is not a left or right conclusion.


when did the Tea Party ever disrupt an Obama or other democrat event?
their protests/gatherings were stand-alone, usually outside or independent of government functions.
Code Pink concentrated on protesting the military and Republican events. Of course Obama &tc didn't prosecute them.

The respect for government process is dead and ignorant in this country.These people don't seem to understand 10,s of millions of people voted for Trump by law with no cheating and He won.
Some of these people will look back at these years regretting the hatred they have for republicans.They don't seem to understand politics at all in this country.
She was never sentenced yet,have patience people and stop listening to 24/7 news spinning propaganda all day.

She was in the very back of the room and the microphone from the very front of the room picked it up. It was a disruption and she broke the law.


Like I said she needed to be spoken to (quietly) for that sound in case she was doing it on purpose or did it again. I was no louder than a cough or sneeze and personally, I believe her that it was a spontaneous accident and she did not mean to disrupt the proceedings.
I have been in many courts and have seen people warned for noise even constant coughing that they will need to leave IF they continue.

What trump supporters and Hillary supporters don't understand is half the country disagrees with them. More than half think Trump is a bad president.

So why when presidents are elected to they ignore tell 50 percent of the population that didn't vote for them. If a president won by a large majority I would understand but the last several presidents have had half the public disagree.

So every president in a long while screws half the population.

In reality they would probably just be told to leave.
Persistence in the offence would definitely result in contempt charges.
I didn't see it. Did she disrupt continually or just once?

So you're what my american friends call snowflakes? Ok then.


Perhaps. I don't know who your "American friends" are, nor how they define "snowflake"?

I...as an actual American..define it as overly sensitive, pathetically thin skinned people who can not tolerate the slightest criticism or challenge and fabricate embarrassingly false "alternative facts" to shield their fragile ego from reality. They lash out on twitter whenever they fear they have been exposed for the fraud they are.

"Snowflakes" to me look like this..



But you are welcome to your own definition..

You could keep giving examples all day long, and it would still be irrelevant.
Just because someone else gets away with breaking the law, doesn't mean the next person will.

Sotomyer confirmation
Four Protesters Arrested During Sotomayor Hearing

Updated 7:30 p.m.Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation hearings began as many historic happenings do in Congress — with protests and arrests.Capitol Police had arrested four protesters by Monday afternoon. Two anti-abortion activists, Robert M. James and Andrew R. Beacham disrupted the hearing with yells of “Abortion is murder!—James, 48, was arrested shortly before 11 a.m. after he interrupted Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) opening statement. Beacham, 27, yelled similar anti-abortion sentiments at about 1 p.m. and was promptly escorted out of the room and arrested.


Also -

After James’ outburst Monday morning, Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) made it clear that anyone who interrupted the hearing would be escorted out.“There will be no outbursts allowed in the committee either for or against the nominee,— he said, later adding: “This is a hearing of the United States Senate. We will have order, we will have decorum.—



Brennan Confirmation
3 Brennan Confirmation Hearing Protesters Sentenced to 100 Hours of Community Service



Three people who protested at CIA Director John Brennan's Feb. 7 confirmation hearing were sentenced Tuesday to perform 100 hours of community service.

Fifteen activists were arrested by U.S. Capitol Police during the course of the hearing, CODEPINK coordinator Alli McCracken told U.S. News. McCracken was among the 15, but opted not to go to trial.

"These three people were passionate enough to take it to the next level," McCracken said, "to highlight their opposition to drones."

A jury in Washington, D.C., found each of the three guilty Monday of disrupting Congress, a misdemeanor. Judge Patricia Broderick sentenced the three – David Barrows, Toby Blome and Joan Nicholson – on Tuesday to 90 days in jail, a punishment suspended with one year of unsupervised probation in its place.


also -

"We're going to halt the hearing, I'm going to ask that the room be cleared and that the CODEPINK associates not be permitted to come back in," an irritated Sen. Dianne Feinstein said, bringing an end to the protest. "[We've] done this five times now, and five times are enough."



John Kerry
Why protesters Code Pink stay out of jail
The protestors were arrested and removed from the hearing room.


So all the examples you gave thus far have the protestors being arrested so what is your issue with the latest protestors being arrested? Interrupting Congressional hearings is no more acceptable now than it was under Obama or even Bush.

Arresting and removing protestors from confirmation hearings is not the issue..


Prosecuting them is.


All the examples above were not PROSECUTED.

Actually they were prosecuted.. next time read the info provided before making false claims.

I see only 3 of the 15 code pink activists that protested were prosecuted?

With suspended 90 day sentences?
