    Correct....so what's the problem?

    Your opinion is duly noted.
    Mine is different.

    What gives you the authority to decide what can and cannot be discussed on PH?

    He couldn't spend his weekends at one of his golf clubs, or hold rallies to get a narcissistic fix.

    More importantly...future presidents may think twice before committing crimes under the cloak of their office.

    I wasn't speaking in relation to the election interference Russia attempted. Michael Flynn, as a member of the president's campaign, may have discussed such issues as lifting the sanctions Obama placed on Russia while Obama was still president.

    As payment for Russia's help in getting Trump elected.
    That would qualify as treason in my book and for Trump not to have been involved is not believable to me.

    But if we are talking about prison, it's not your book the court will use, Diablo.

    That's possible. At this point though, we're not sure if Trump's fingerprints are on any of that. He may be able to claim plausible deniability.

    The specifics of what "Book" they will follow are unknown as of now.

    So far, Trump has not shown himself to be a very savvy legal chess player.
    My money is on Mueller.
