IMHO, anyone in public office should be hold to a higher standard. They are supposed to be better than average Joe. Why else would we want them in public office?

I would state with relative confidence that the GOP and various Trump defenders around these parts passionately shared that view right up until about 5 seconds after Trump was sworn into office.

1. Collusion is not a tryable offense. Maybe treason but with nothing definite. Off the table! Under the criminal code what could a person charge the POTUS under.

2. Obstruction of Justice. That was thrown out due to finding of the IG office. Comey was fired for cause...insubordination. So that throws that charge out the window.

What are you trying to charge POTUS with? :D

Conspiracy to illegally aid a hostile foreign government in a cyber attack on US election is.

No. No it was not. Where the hell do you get your news.... oh wait, nevermind. We all know.

Alan Dershowitz is where I got my legal info from. An ultral liberal Constitutional Scholar...Harvard Law Professor.

Peace and love...a good hippie mantra as well as a good christian sentiment.

You mean the regular Fox News guest personality who makes a living pandering to that audience.

But I doubt even he said the obstruction charge had been "thrown out". Although maybe he is that far gone... show us. Where did he say it?

Great, they tend to keep transcripts of their shows.

Go find it and show us where he said it. I know you have issues with sourcing anything you ever claim but try real real hard and see if you can do it this time.

Why? You wanted an answer to where did I get the information but I really understand what your trying to do. Your saying I get all my information from Fox news so you can ignore it. FYI: I have to listen to CNN all day at work! Thank God, I have a door to my office! :D

To make sure Dershowitz actually said what you think he said. Hearing what you want to hear is a common problem so it's good to provide transcripts to verify what was actually said versus what was heard and repeated.
