    Trump's lawyers are laying the groundwork for a brazen new legal strategy in the Russia probe

    Trump's lawyers are laying the groundwork for a brazen new legal strategy in the Russia probe
    • President Donald Trump's defense team is arguing that Trump cannot be charged with collusion or obstruction of justice — the central threads of the special counsel's Russia investigation.
    • Two of Trump's key defense lawyers, John Dowd and Jay Sekulow, have said in recent days that collusion is not a crime and that Trump as president cannot be guilty of obstruction because he "has every right to express his view of any case."
    • Legal experts have pushed back on the claims, saying that Trump's lawyers are ignoring the crux of the obstruction case and that he could be found guilty of crimes resulting from collusion.
    Just how dumb can these people get? The treasonous fat senile old orange clown is now claiming that he is above the law. You 'Conservatives' fine with that?

    Not only is he saying he's above the law (actually, it was his lawyer that said that), but he's also got his lawyer taking the fall for his tweet about the Russia thing, and now has been saying that the Entertainment Tonight tape wasn't him.

    Yep, when caught, deny, deny, deny......................and if you can manage it, get other people to take the blame for you.

    Wonder how much his lawyer is getting paid to be thrown under the bus?

    Dershowitz is out there saying that the President cannot be charged with obstruction of justice. AND he's been saying that right from the beginning this shit started.Ditto collusion.

    What law states that collusion is illegal?

    No American is above the law. When that is abrogated, we no longer have a nation of laws, and are well on our way to a dictatorship.

    Interestingly enough, Jeff Sessions said the exact opposite and that presidents can be charged with obstruction of justice because of Clinton and his scandal with Monica.

    Sessions argued in Clinton impeachment that presidents can obstruct justice
