Many are suggesting that the former comedian, turned militant, leftist activist, Rosie O’Donnell needs to be treated by federal authorities like every other American when it comes to being held accountable for her actions. O’Donnell broke the law when she offered to pay two Republican lawmakers for voting against Trump’s tax cut bill on Twitter. 

After ex-comedian Rosie O’Donnell’s meltdown on Twitter before the Senate’s big tax vote Tuesday night, President Donald Trump can reasonably direct federal authorities to lock her up — and even to “take some money out of her fat-ass pockets,” which he once infamously cited as a personal goal.

Starting a few hours before the legislation passed, O’Donnell tweeted:

Even after another Twitter user, Louise Mensch, replied that O’Donnell was irresponsibly advocating bribery, O’Donnell doubled down.

Federal law addresses O’Donnell’s actions.

18 U.S. Code § 201 criminalizes the attempted bribery of federal officials by whoever “directly or indirectly, corruptly gives, offers or promises anything of value to any public official … with intent to influence any official act.”

The penalty? For Rosie, she could spend up to 15 years in jail, suffer a lifetime ban from elective office and pay up to a cool $12 million:

The statute calls for a fine of “not more than three times the monetary equivalent of the thing of value, whichever is greater, or imprisoned for not more than fifteen years, or both, and may be disqualified from holding any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.”

In court, O’Donnell would probably argue that her attempted bribe was in jest, or perhaps a syndrome of a mental illness.

After all, her attorneys would argue, who, while seriously attempting to bribe members of the U.S. Congress would do so in such a reckless, public manner that would all but ensure a conviction? – Daily Caller

The emboldened screwball doubled down on her vile tweets calling for people to rise up against our government and “mobilize”, to call 911 and again, offered to pay US Senators millions of dollars to vote against tax cuts for working, American families.

She even asked her followers to call 911 to report a “fake” crime. There has to be a law against this:

What does Rosie mean when she calls on people to “mobilize” against our government? Isn’t that the same thing as calling for a coup? Isn’t that also considered to be illegal?

And then, she doubled down on stupid with this tweet:

Here’s how a few Twitter users responded:
