Pennsylvania Court Considers Throwing Out Articles of Impeachment Against George Soros-Funded DA Larry Krasner
On December 29, 2022 Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner went before a four-judge Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court panel to halt impeachment proceedings that were launched against him on November 16. The Pennsylvania State House, which was previously under stronger control by Republicans (113-88) initially launched these proceedings. Now, Republicans only hold a much narrower advantage (101-99) in the House.
Per a report by the Associated Press, one of the four judges, Ellen Ceisler declared that “It seems to me that these impeachment proceedings are based on disagreement with public policy and an elected official’s discretion. I think that this proceeding could set terrible precedent in the future.”
Joshua Young of The Post Millennial noted that the “judicial quartet’s makeup is half Republican and half Democrat, with Ceisler counting as one of the latter.”
According to the articles of impeachment against Krasner, the Philadelphia DA engaged in “misbehavior in office in nature of violation of victims rights,” and “misbehavior in office in the nature of violence of the constitution of Pennsylvania by usurpation of the legislative function.”
On December 29, Krasner contended that there was no substance behind such assertions. In addition, he declared that the GOP-controlled state general assembly does not have the authority to remove him from office.
Krasner is notorious for his progressive, soft-on crime policies such as no cash bail and not prosecuting offenders engaged in non-violent gun and drug possession crimes. The Philadelphia DA is part of a network of soft-on crime prosecutors — George Gascon in Los Angeles, Kim Foxx in Chicago, and Kim Gardner in St. Louis — who are funded by leftist oligarch George Soros. These prosecutors are contributing to the “Gothamification” of American cities where criminals run loose and terrorize people with virtual impunity.
Judge Patricia McCullough, a Republican judge on the panel, declared, “The problem is you’re asking the court to intervene and that is going to set another huge precedent for the people of this commonwealth if the court can usurp its separation of powers principle and stick its hand into a process that the Supreme Court says belongs to the General Assembly. And that’s really the issue.”
A trial is slated to take place on January 18 in the Pennsylvania Senate.
DAs like Krasner must face political pressure. While Pennsylvania Republicans may not get their way here, they’re thinking the right way. Elected officials like Krasner do not respond to persuasion.
They ultimately must be relieved of the burden of holding higher office. Republican-controlled legislative bodies and governor’s mansions must make it a point to punish these prosecutors before America’s cities turn into veritable favelas.
