Dems Trying To Deliver Final Blow To Trump…

Two key House Democ­rats will roll out leg­is­la­tion Thurs­day that would revoke a life­time pen­sion and oth­er tax­pay­er-fund­ed perks from for­mer pres­i­dents who are con­vict­ed of felonies dur­ing or after office.

Rep. Sean Patrick Mal­oney (D‑N.Y.), who leads the Democ­rats’ cam­paign arm, and Pro­gres­sive Cau­cus Chair Prami­la Jaya­pal (D‑Wash.) have authored the Restor­ing and Enforc­ing Account­abil­i­ty of Pres­i­dents (REAP) Act. It would reform the For­mer Pres­i­dents Act of 1958 by strip­ping past pres­i­dents con­vict­ed of a felony of their $219,200 annu­al pen­sion; office space; and a bud­get to pay for staff.

The leg­is­la­tion does not impact life­time Secret Ser­vice pro­tec­tion for con­vict­ed pres­i­dents. It will for­mal­ly be intro­duced on Thurs­day, when Mal­oney and Jaya­pal will begin gath­er­ing co-sponsors.
