    The hypocrisy and childishness of your post.

    Your opinion is duly noted.
    Mine is different.
    That's great. Keep doing this and I'll keep calling you out about it.

    What gives you the authority to decide what can and cannot be discussed on PH?
    Nothing. I claim no such authority. I need no authority to express MY opinion, which is that this thread is bullshit, and it's part of a pattern of hypocritical bullshit of which you are frequently the author.

    We've been around about this before Devil. You keep doing this shit and I'll keep calling it shit.

    I am occasionally criticized by our right-leaning friends, "Why don't you call out bullshit on your own side?" Threads like this are proof that I do.

    As to whether we should be speculating about this, I think the time to think about it and discuss it is now.
    Any high profile wealthy person could get away with the crimes that Trump has been accused of. We have three justice systems: One of ordinary Americans, one for the rich and powerful, and one for the poor and uneducated.

    Because we let people like Nixon go.

    Nixon, though, was not yet charged by the House. Proposed articles had made it out of committee, but he resigned before they could be brought to the full House.

    OK...at least you admit your motive for these silly attacks.

    Do you also feel it necessary to resort to character attacks instead of just stating your opinion?
    Does that improve your status in their eyes?

    This "Shit" was merely asking a poll question to which you overreacted with phony righteous indignation.

    Call me out whenever you want Rass but try to do so as civilly as I respond to these snits of yours.

    In the meantime, almost twice as many agree with me than with you about Trump's fate if he is convicted.

    He may claim deniability but it is certainly not plausible.
    Plus I'm guessing Mueller will have clear evidence to destroy that claim in court.

    Edit: In DEA we always made multiple "Buys" from a dealer b4 we arrested him.
    The idea was to defeat any defense claim at trial that he only did it this one time to get money for his sick mother. LOL

    (which might buy sympathy from a jury so we had to prove that selling drugs was his normal/routine business.)

    The fact is, we just don't know.

    Nah...you just didn't actually have any news to react to so you made up crap that assumes all the stuff you wish were true (and may yet be). You really didn't have anything anti-Trump to say today, so you made up this stuff.

    Call me out whenever you want Rass but try to do so as civilly as I respond to these snits of yours.

    Have I expressed an opinion on the matter? My major point is that your thread is an example of premature emasculation.
