If they have clear evidence Trump colluded with Russia to hurt Hillary what are the chances for Jail


Or if he was making business deals with Russia for favors? This all seems pretty serious to me.

4. Working to help an enemy of the US seems more serious than spying on the opposing party


but I am no law expert.

7. Nixon was the cause of 30,000 more lives lost

by extending the Vietnam war 5 years, he went to the N Vietnamese to say he would give them a better deal than LBJ, we know how that went

9. Nixon sent envoys to Viet Cong leadership

during the 1968 campaign promising them that he would negotiate an end to the war suitable to them if they refused to agree to end the war with then President Johnson. The delay in the war end caused over 20,000 American deaths.

2. Nobody knows, but based on the Dems

muted response to Bush's lies, I'd say small chance.

5. If he is going to jail for sure (treason, etc.)

...then Pense should resign, Trump should name Hillary as VP, and then Trump resigns, and Hillary pardons Trump.

Simple, huh?

6. Is treason still punishable by the firing squad? Or could he choose lethal injection?

Still too early to ascertain what laws, if any, were broken

Punishment is dependent on the crime.

I don't think treason is on the table as I'm uncertain whether Russia would be considered an enemy, which forms the basis of a charge of treason.

But the idea of offering Trump a cigarette before blindfolding him and firing away is oddly appealing.

8. Zero-he will be pardoned and we will, "Move on for the good of the country".

That's how these guys roll. What will be interesting is the Democrat's response if it plays out this way.
