    My favourite though is that TrumpCo's dealings, if they're dug into and there is proof of Russian money laundering...falls under RICO

    The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes which they ordered others to do or assisted them in doing, closing a perceived loophole that allowed a person who instructed someone else to, for example, murder, to be exempt from the trial because they did not actually commit the crime personally.[1]
    The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude larger than is required to produce it.

    So collusion was just the pretext to look into everything in search of some crime?

    Huh.

    Well yes, when there appears to be a conspiracy to commit a crime, it's usually pretty smart to see if the crime was actually committed.
