Trump’s Russian Troubles Grow Even Worse

Attorney Jay Sekulow is one of a gaggle of attorney's paid by tax money to defend Donald Trump in the growing Russia investigation. (Nice mug shot)

It's impossible to understand- because it's hypocritical- but how is it the paranoid Republicans were ready to indict Secretary Clinton with no evidence about the horrible Benghazi attack (for which she had no direct responsibility), but they refuse to hear FBI, CIA and other intel about Donald Trump and his clandestine relationship with Russia?
Russia is holding something over Donald Trump's head and the Republicans are refusing to ask the salient question about whatever it is.  In other words, "What is Donald Trump protecting with Russia that's more valuable to him than American democracy?'

Donald Trump is in trouble.

The Russian probe isn’t going away. In fact, the investigation is growing even deeper and broader, and the stories are breaking quicker than most people can even comprehend. As one major, earth-shattering story is splashed across the headline, another tends to follow quickly on its heels.

On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that Trump was exploring the possibility of pardoning his aides, his family, and himself. 

As CNN reported, the chilling fact that the president is exploring the possibility of a self-pardon “seems directly linked to the ongoing special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the foreign power.”

The idea of a president pardoning himself has raised some really tricky legal questions, and even more really tricky legal answers. 
Attorney Marc Kasowitz - looks like a luxury Lexus rental car sales person?  One in the gaggle who are representing Donald Trump.

Can the president pardon himself? (Even the Pope cannot absolve himself of sin!)

Trump could face indictment while in office, if the charge is treason. In fact, Trump is in even bigger trouble than he (and his expensive legal team) previously thought. This following memo was found by investigative reporters from The New York Times, using the Freedom of Information Act (FIA)- data from the special investigation by Ken Starr:

“It is proper, constitutional, and legal for a federal grand jury to indict a sitting president for serious criminal acts that are not part of, and are contrary to, the president’s official duties. In this country, no one, even President Clinton, is above the law.”

Gulp! Marc Kasowitz, Jay Sekulow and Ty Cobb, et al.
Your hourly billable time x 3 must be the equivalent of at least $2,000 (two thousand) dollars an hour (minimum before expenses). This trilogy of cash is a terrible waste of tax money, especially because Donald Trump is, already, over his head in trouble. He should resign.
