One big question after the stunning dual convictions of President Trump’s former campaign boss and former attorney — the latter of whom said Trump directed him to do something illegal — is whether Trump himself will face consequences.
Legally, the answer is: Probably not. There’s a decades-old Justice Department guideline saying sitting presidents can’t be indicted, and there’s no indication that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III wants to challenge that.


That leaves the option that Trump will face political consequences after his former attorney alleged that Trump broke the law. Voters will get a chance to weigh in on all of this in November’s midterm elections, which will determine control of Congress, but for now any action or lack thereof is up to the current Republican-controlled Congress to decide.

Analysis: What will Congress realistically do now that Trump has been implicated in a crime?

He didn't break any laws period. Just because some prosecutor says he did doesn't mean anything. They aren't a judge nor a jury they are a state advocate. End of story.

this assumes that trump did use campaign funds to make the payments, and that is the assumption of the prosecutor in the case. i suspect that financial records will vindicate trump and sho thee payments were made from his personal accounts, not campaign accounts.


but even if they were made from the campaign accounts, it is a civil matter not a criminal one.

Trump was not implicated in a crime. The basis of this whole thread is just a flat out lie.

The party of ROT & CORRUPTION won't do squat unless (which is highly unlikely) Republican voters demand they get off their butts and "PUT COUNTRY FIRST"!
