It's Time to Retire the Word "Collusion" When Describing Trump's Machinations

It soft-pedals his actual crimes. It would be more accurate to describe his maneuvers as conspiracy.

1. I was thinking along the same lines.

As much as he admitted he would conspire with a foreign nation on political opponent dirt..."See what you can get for me on____________. Then get back with me."

That would constitute conspiracy.

2. Is it a conspiracy if he is doing it all in the open now?

3. Technically, a Conspiracy Doesn't Require Being Hidden

Although, granted, many are.

4. K&R the shortened version is "Obstruction" which isn't retired...

The entire felony is named "Obstruction of Justice."

5. How long before it becomes "Crimes against humanity?"

As a matter of fact, as far as we know, "Crimes against humanity" may have already been committed at our southern border. Does anyone really think that Trump would hesitate to do that, or give a rat's ass?

6. I Think "Crimes Against Humanity" Are Already a Given

We have concentration camps and all their attendant abuses right here at home.
