Ohio lawmaker says she'll press crimes against humanity charge against Trump over hydroxychloroquine

From The Hill

Ohio state Rep. Tavia Galonski (D) said that she will make a “referral for crimes against humanity” over President Trump’s promotion of the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the novel coronavirus, despite its unproven benefits and lack of long-term Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.

“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow,” Galonski tweeted late Sunday.

4. Press charges?

Where?
The International Criminal Court?
The US is not a signatory to the ICC, so just where is she going to press charges at?

7. Very true.

Crimes against Humanity are the purview of the ICC, of which the US is not a signatory, so just where is this Rep. going to go to press charges?

I suspect she didn't think this through because she is so enraged that it overcame her common sense.

The Mango Menace has a bad habit of doing that to people.

6. She and many others should. It's just as bad as a crook pushes his snake oil medication onto...

unsuspecting people, and promises a cure, etc. Just like Jim Bakker did ... all in a blatant attempt to deceive others and promise the moon for a fake cure.

8. But just where is she going to press Crimes against Humanity charges?

And she can't press charges, only Federal, State or Local DA's can do that.

The Hague has no authority to press charges against a US president, the US is not a signatory to the ICC.

9. The Hague

I'm sure that the powers that be will find somewhere to file such crimes against humanity. It'll be done somehow, I am not to analyze where and what and how and all that, that's an attorney's job, not mine.

10. The ICC is the Hague and, again, the US is not a signatory,

they have no jurisdiction over the US at all and I highly doubt any US District Attorney will entertain any such charge.

I'm not saying it's a bad idea, but it just ain't going to happen, especially at the Hague.
