Legal experts are calling for the arrest and prosecution of Donald Trump after the New York Times reported Friday afternoon that the former president demanded Justice Department officials simply claim the 2020 presidential election was “corrupt” and then “leave the rest to him” as he desperately tried to stay in power.

The bombshell report from the Times’ Katie Benner is based upon contemporaneous notes from Richard P. Donoghue taken during a phone call on Dec. 27 as Trump pushed acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen to intercede on his behalf in a futile effort to remain as president.

Quoting Trump, Donoghue reportedly wrote, “Just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me.”

Reacting to the report, commenters on Twitter — including some Constitutional law experts — called the president’s unprecedented request a smoking gun that should lead to his prosecution. You can see some of their comments below:
