Felony Murder Doctrine
Definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary

A rule that allows a killing that occurs in the course of a dangerous felony, even an accidental death, to be charged against the felon as first-degree murder. A felon can be guilty of murder during the course of the dangerous felony even if the felon is not the killer, as might happen when a robber kills a clerk -- the driver of the getaway car, as well as the robber, may be charged with first-degree murder. The rule extends to unusual circumstances, such as the killing of one of two bank robbers by a bank security officer (the surviving robber may be charged with murder).

We've seen something like this before.

With Nunes honor, Trump treats Medal of Freedom like a party favor

Source: MSNBC

The White House's written statement explaining why Nunes is receiving the nation's highest civilian honor is unintentionally amusing: it argues that the Republican congressman earned the medal because he uncovered evidence of the Obama administration spying on the Trump campaign (that didn't happen in reality), found proof of "illegitimate" unmaskings (that also didn't happen in reality), "thwarted" a plot to take down an American president (this is utterly bananas), proved something nefarious about the "persecution" of disgraced former White House National Security Advisor Michael Flynn (who wasn't persecuted), "pursued" the "Russia Hoax" (which obviously wasn't a hoax), and "uncovered the greatest scandal in American history," which the document didn't actually identify.

Perhaps most importantly, the president's statement added that Nunes deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom because the Republican lawmaker "had the fortitude to take on the media, the FBI, the Intelligence Community, the Democrat Party, foreign spies, and the full power of the Deep State."

Or put another way, Trump is celebrating Nunes for "taking on" his own country's governmental institutions that Trump ostensibly helps lead.
