    Letís see, the Benghazi attack took a few hours to occur and the GOP says ten investigations over six years is not enough.

    But discovering the depth of the presidents financial conflicts and Russian influence in the electoral process should be over by now.

    Whay kind of priorities do they have?

    Their priorities are to destroy the US Constitution, loot the Treasury, and cede control of the US to Solntsevskaya Bratva.

    The chronic Anti-American Red from the small island in the middle of nowhere wants us to hurry up and drop this important, nay, Critical, investigation of Gangsters, Traitors, Bushwhackers, and Moral Deviants!
    Is anyone else as shocked as I am?

    Yes, I started it asking the simple question "When is the 2017-present Special Counsel investigation, going to result in criminal charges being levied against Mr Trump?". I never implied that the investigation should be stopped.

    Having just returned from an extended 'vacation' from the Forum, I trust you have also fully recovered from your health issues.

    Sadly you still carry on with your incorrect derogatory description of me.

    The 'Fake News'/information (apart from the 'small island') that you continue to
    push and repeat about me personally, hopefully does not impact your health in shocking you with the stress of doing so.

    One hopes that you may have had and used the time to consider your actions to make a change to avoid a reoccurrence of your enforced absence.

    Hint: Attacking people results in one being banned - but I suspect that you know this!


    Trust your continued personal offensive onslaughts will end to allow you a long presence on the forum.

    As to onzabrag, I did not challenge his typing, I gave onzabrag the benefit of the doubt on a potential typo. Perhaps you overlooked that post in your haste to criticize me.

    May you have an enjoyable day.

    Charging a sitting president with a crime presents interesting and unresolved constitutional issues.

    The courts allowed a civil suit to go forward against President Clinton, but two things are different now:

    The current president is not a budget balancing Democrat and the court is more emphatically ideological; and

    There's a world of difference between adjusting a civil suit's schedule to the needs of the presidency and dealing with the distraction a criminal trial would cause a golfing president.

    In general, the remedy for a president committing crimes is impeachment. A former president can absolutely be indicted and tried in a competent criminal court after impeachment. But can the impeachment process be short circuited by a criminal trial? Almost certainly not for crimes that could be impeachable offences. The constitution gives a time sequence for that.

    But what about crimes not necessarily impeachable but criminal non-the-less? What about crimes that are not impeachable committed before the presidency? Or during?

    For example, the complex mess we are learning about Trump's long standing relationship with Putin and his oligarchs included Trump's failing businesses being rescued by the cash flow from Russian criminal money laundering. This is a different matter from Trump's presidential campaign being rescued by Russian monies and hacking. Those are clearly impeachable crimes if probable cause is found by the House voting a bill of impeachment.

    It is not proven yet whether Trump was a participant with criminal liability or just a fortunate dupe in either the old money laundering or the election manipulations. But if Trump was a participant in those crimes, can he be criminally prosecuted under federal and/or state law while sitting as president? Neither 'yes' nor 'no' is explicit in our constitution.

    Good faith arguments can be made either way.

    Read your posts about me again.

    Banning is the result of one's own actions.

    But you know that.

    Be guided accordingly.

    You just can't help yourself, can you? You probably park by the train tracks and encourage the old guy with the walker to go ahead and try to make it across before the train comes, "C'mon, Pilgrim. Let's see a little hustle. Those train whistles always sound closer in the dark. You can make it!"
    I don't care to know what the tough do when the going gets tough.

    Well said, I hope Glen pays attention to what you said and what is being said for his benefit.

    I am trying to warn Glen not to repeat his actions which got him banned.

    But while he may be a brother forumite, I am not my brother's keeper,

    Loss of interest in the investigation generally, given that it would have been rather interesting to see how such and inditement would carried out on a sitting President.

    If you review the post to which I think you are referring - in which you consider i am nitpicking - , you will see I was making a friendly alert/warning regarding using the Moderator's name and (was it the President name?) in the same sentence.


    Nevertheless I have never said I was perfect.

    Plus, I have you chaps to remind me that I am not.



    PS is this song about you?

    The Special Counsel doesnít have the authority to indict the President. The only thing the investigation has accomplished is to prove how inept hiliaryís campaign was. With Obamaís administration covering up her criminality; spying on, setting up, and entrapping Trumpís campaign: she still lost. And the only real crimes exposed have been by FBI, DOJ, and administration personnel.
