    If Trump is convicted of crimes should he serve time in prison?

    Whether state (beyond presidential pardon power) or federal.

    If Trump is convicted for any crime...it will be by Congress [Senate] and the only punishment afforded the Senate is removal from office.

    This is true as far as it goes, but he can still be prosecuted in the normal course after such removal. (However, even upon conviction the Senate need not remove him; that is merely the most power it has to do.)

    That said, it is way too early - if the time ever comes at all - for such speculation.

    A sitting President cannot be indicted.

    If convicted, he would only be put in a country club prison - you know swimming pool, tennis court, wine with dinner, etc. What's the point?

    There is no argument that a former president can be convicted and inprisoned for crimes.
    There is some legal question about the same for a sitting President.

    This topic is asking for your opinion, not a legal argument.

    It is a very likely issue to arise....the only question is how long it will take.
    My poll is to uncover the mood of the people, not the likelihood of it happening.

    There are good legal arguments on both sides so your opinion means shit.

    Your delusions are what doesn't mean shit.
