Assuming there's enough proof, could Dems use RICO to take down GOP Senators

Who are complicit in this entire money laundering/obstruction of justice fiasco with Trump, his cabinet, and all the rest of the GOP, prior to the Senate impeachment trial?

Otherwise, it seems to allow them to cast judgment on the guilt or innocence of Trump when they are complicit in the same crime. That would be a major miscarriage of justice, a blight on our democracy, an affront on justice and the rule of law. To me, an impeachment that ends in Trump's acquittal based on the votes of co-conspirators in the crimes he is accused of cannot be allowed to advance. Surely the Dems in power see the same thing and feel the same way.

I can imagine a scenario where one Congressperson is brought to justice by his or her colleagues, but what if the cancer is so pervasive that it would ensnare a dozen or dozens of them? Could such a sweep be successfully tackled by the Dems, and prior to the Senate hearing at that?

Not asking this as a Democrat. Asking this as an American.

Why is Trump allowed to testify by tweet?

He is using an electronic media to give voice to his mendacious disinformation DURING AN IMPEACHMENT HEARING aimed directly at him!

The American people shouldn't hear a peep from him regarding his guilt or innocence, or the witnesses' credibility, or anything else even tangentially related to this hearing unless he is under oath and being interrogated by Congress. We govern there.

So come on, Donald. Whatever you have to say, say it in the People's House.

Popcorn time! Mueller's sentencing recommendations in Manafort's DC case are expected TODAY

Per Rachel, this report will be narrative in nature and may turn out to be a bombshell in advance of the expected full Mueller report.

Since Mueller seems to be telling his story through his court pleadings, we may soon be privy to some extraordinary information. Something tells me Trump is about to have a very bad weekend.

If Manafort or Stone was pardoned and then compelled to testify

What would prevent them from continuing to lie under oath to protect Trump? A perjury count? Isn't the max sentence 5 years for that? Compared to the prison time they're facing, that would seem to be a sweetheart deal they'd make with Putin/Trump in advance of a pardon.
