      Nixon was pardoned by the next president not himself. It just doesnt look good if a president or former president sits in jail, in that sense they can get away with almost anything

      Where is the evidence that such a thing exists or existed?
      The "Russian Dossier" used in obtaining the FISA warrant to surveil the Trump Campaign and Presidency...

      It was originated by a Trump opponent in the primary, then enhanced on Hillary's dime for opposition research during the Presidential campaign, then injected into the campaign by Comey's briefing the president on it followed by leaking, then used to surveil Trump...

      Plus the transfer through Hillary's hands of American Uranium to Putin...

      For starters...

      Regardless, the Dems were incensed by it. Why so? Because they wanted Nixon not only to be removed from office (which had already been accomplished) but imprisoned as well.

      No disagreeing politician is to ever go unpunished...

      I am seriously persuaded that had Trump lost,
      his fortune would be in Government hands
      and he would be in jail under Hillary's regime...

      They are a vicious lot...

      "How DARE you...!!!"

      But Trump dared...

      Could be. The more that comes to light, the wider and deeper the scheming is shown to have been. First, we knew that the Clinton campaign was involved in some skullduggery, then that the FBI broke the law and has become an arm of one of the political parties, then that they had sought out foreign agents in order to fabricate allegations against the Republican candidate for president so that the FISA court could be deceived into allowing snooping on the Trump campaign, then that it wasnt just electronic eavesdropping but the planting of an actual spy, and now we know that it all led right up to the former president personally. Whats next in this series of escalations?

      The Russian Dossier was not the source of the investigation. The Dossier merely confirmed what Mueller already knew to be fact. So your argument that Hillary was involved is moot.

      This right here. Trump's successor might be able to pardon him, but Trump himself is still subject to the checks and balances provided by the Constitution. The Legislative, Executive and Judicial branches of government are meant to mutually limit each others' power.

      I guess this is no longer news since the summit is happening now. The media is waiting for Trump to make a tiny mistake so they can jump on it and make it into a huge ordeal that it really isn't. The media is so drama driven.
