    It may be too soon to ask the question...but you have to wonder, if these allegations about the Obama administration and its staff are true, can President Obama be charged after the fact, with high crimes and misdemeaner?

    We now have a slew of Obama officials under scrutiny...
    James Comey
    Andrew McCabe
    James Clapper
    John Brennan
    Samantha Powers
    Susan Rice
    Valerie Jarrett
    Ben Rhodes
    Hillary Clinton...

    What goes around comes around.

      Jacklee . If this DOESN'T happen at least at the "hands on" level of activist conspirists ,  then there is no such thing as justice in America anymore . I think we all know there is enough "insulation by ignorance" to protect  the top tiers but somebody had better be held accountable or we should all be extremely angered .

    You can't impeach an ex president, I don't think, for obvious reasons. I would assume, if laws were broken, one could be indicted. But, do we really want to go down that road? Another round of endless congressional hearings? Partisan attempts to push us into charges filed? Don't we have better things to worry about?

    The past is over. We can either solve the problems of the present or just let ourselves be mired in the hopes of vengeance.

      My gut reaction is the same - "It's over.  Done and gone - drop it and lets move on".

      On the other hand, we don't say that about a murder, a rape, a hit-and-run or any other crime.  Why should that one be any different?

        Probably because those crimes are cut and dry. With a sitting president and these types of crimes, there is room for lawyers to infinitely argue so many points.

        In the end, what we would get is something like the Hillary email saga. Yes, but, I don't know, did it, but let's just don't prosecute. The country will simply be divided,yet again, for no gain.
