The news today is not good for Trump....
A triple whammy...
Cohen pleads guilty
Manfort found guilty
Special Counsel to the President cooperating.

This begs the question of, "can he be arrested"?
All these witnesses are now cooperating.
With all this evidence, can someone go into Trumps office and arrest him?
Handcuffed, booked, read his rights, mug shots and bail set.

Its not like the president is "immune" from commiting a crime.
He can't go out and shoot someone, and not be accountable, right?

These are "Dark times" in America.
and the brightest China has been.

No. The Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel, which provides legal advice and guidance to executive branch agencies, has held that a sitting president cannot be indicted.

I read that, but that would that mean he is "immune" for committing a crime?
He can't just go into the streets and shoot someone.
There must be a limits to such rights.

He can be impeached and removed from office.
That would be fun to watch.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
