So.... looks like Trump Jnr is going to jail. Well, at least until his dad pardons him for Treason.

Apparently the meeting with the Russian lawyer was at 4pm on the 9th of June 2016 (according to the released emails). And then Trump Snr's first ever mention of "Hillary's 33,000 deleted emails" was at 4:40pm that same day. Just a co-incidence though I'm sure!

"Trump has asked his advisers about his power to pardon aides, family members and even himself in connection with the probe"

I'm not guilty this is a witch hunt... btw how do I pardon myself and my team?

Insane. The Greens lose two Senators because unknowingly being dual-citizens means they might be under the influence of a foreign power, yet Trump could conceivably pardon himself for Treason. If they did what they appear to have done back in the 1950's, McCarthy would have locked up the entire family as communists by now.

Very interesting Twitter thread from a lawyer and law professor with regards to Trump and his powers to be able to pardon himself (he can't) or co-conspirators (he can, in some circumstances)

There was no way Trump would be allowed to pardon himself as that's so obviously a thing that would have been anticipated when creating the power to pardon. God only knows why he even had to ask someone about that.

Ohhh, right, he was desperately hoping that was an option. :lol:

isn't "just couriously wanting to know ,not for any special reason...." what your pardoning powers are, While being investigated for possible crimes , ,kind of an admission you or someone you know may have done something wrong?? ,or even if you've done nothing wrong your sure as hell giving the impression that you have if your asking the question!
It's like every day he's potus he shows he's more and more unsuited for the job and his levels of stupidity just keeps climbing!

An hour before he sacked the mooch ,trump tweeted that there was "no chaos in the WH" :D

Turns out dear dad had a hand in juniors russian lawyer statement ,the one that was later found to be "untrue" - apparently juniors advisers advised that junior tell the truth so no one could come along later and say it's crap
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-08-02/t ... ld/8765620

sooo...possible cover up evidence and it'll be interesting what else comes up now ,I'm wondering if dear donald will even make it to the 1st anniversary of his election in november before the moves start to boot him from office.

Just so that I'm up to date on this, the President can commit any crime they want (including before they took office) and they won't be charged until they are either impeached or otherwise leave office?
Surely there is something where at least the Judiciary can say enough is enough.

heres a good explanation ,basically theres no immunity vs criminal acts but there is vs civil suits - senators and congressmen do have criminal immunity but only where the goverments in session.

Basically it's impeach first then criminal trial.

so basically trump couldn't be bothered doing reading on the deal before talking to turnbull and couldn't understand what it was even when it's explained to him ,he just hated it because obama agreed to it....
