    Mueller purposefully picking a state to try these guys with a democratic governor, just to avoid a pardon, would result in a mistrial and his whole investigation being tossed more than likely.

    If trump pardons the Russiagate suspects, that is a sign he is innocent.

    You see when he PARDONS THEM they lose their Right invoke the 5th amendment. (They have been pardoned of the crime so they cannot incriminate themselves) But if they lie they can be charged with perjury..

    I can see the meltdown when dems/liberals finally realize that the real Russian conspiracy lies within their own party. Do we have screaming in the streets to look forward to?

    If you receive immunity or a pardon. The 5th amendment right when testifying in court is off the table. YOU CANNOT BE CHARGED with the crime.

    Even Blissful idiots know that.

    you just proved you don't give a shit about the facts.. but you chose remain ignorant due to your partisan mindset.

    No one but fringe right wingers see what you see. There will be no indictments of Democrats and there will continue to be ongoing indictments of Trump Administration flunkies, stooges, sycophants and lickspittles.

    But then again what Manafort was indicted on was his work while he was working for HILLARY.
