No one seems to have mentioned this one.

However, on Twitter people are asking

"So when Trumps lawyer said that the "crimes were well past the statute of limitations" what does it mean?"

Palmer sums up the flap in this report:

Donald Trump's lawyers unwittingly admit to his financial crimes by talking about statute of limitations - Palmer Report

Apparently Maddow first caught the gaff made by a Trump attorney who apparently confessed Trump has committed crimes but they are past the statue of limitations.

Is this why Trump is so worried about Mueller digging too deeply?

Not if he lied or covered them up while on the campaign?

Congressional impeachments aren't bound by statute of limitations.

"In general, federal crimes have a five-year deadline for investigations, so financial wrongdoing in the 2000s would would be time-barred, Georgetown’s O’Sullivan notes. “But if a conspiracy of some sort is charged, the statute of limitations does not run until the last overt act taken to further the conspiracy takes place.”

And a Republican House and Senate will neither impeach or remove him from office, especially because every bit of this is political in nature and not substantive.

The nonsense you buy into has been so amusing. Please don't change.

The Statute of Limitations for Frauds doesn't start until the fraud is discovered.
