    I know, Donnie hasn't been accused nor indicted yet, but no ne can deny we're witnessing history in the making with the last two years of almost daily scandals concerning him or his administration.

    There are a lot of intelligent people on this forum so I decide to ask them, and the Trump fans (just kidding guys) what you believe the proper penalty should be for a person who dealt with his country's foremost adversary for his own gain?


    For the Pro Trump fans, just imagine Hillary or Obama was compromised by Russia and in their debt. Does anyone know the real penalty for such actions?

      That's treason, and needs to be with as such.

        I assume you left out the word "dealt' in your post?

    Let's hope, if guilty,  he doesn't get treated like Hillary has been and becomes idolized by party faithful.

      We already know the answer. Hillary was corrupt as the FBI was investigating her and now the FBI is corrupt because it's investigating Trump. I think that's a meme.

      I think a life sentence in maximum security would be good punishment.

        That wasn't what I said, or meant. But thanks for proving it's nearly impossible to crawl up into someone else's head and create thoughts for them.

          I didn't say that's what you said. Apparently something struck a nerve though. My statement is meant to reflect the general story being told by Trump's media. Apologies.

          "But Hillary"..does this more accurately reflect your personal answer? If so..emails vs treason..hmmm.

            It only struck a nerve because it reflects our refusal to listen to opposing views and attempt to understand why they are held.

          If he's shown to have knowingly helped Russia corrupt our elections, then the death penalty should be an option.  His actions--if found guilty--deserve no less for corrupting our govt and giving Russia the chance to hurt us badly.

            If he is found to have colluded with Russia, and especially if he is found to be doing Putin's bidding while President, wouldn't that be treason, for which the penalty would be death?

              That's what I thought too, Pretty. It may be another of those unsettled Constitutional arguments which soon may be addressed by the SCOTUS.

                I can't believe we're even discussing this.  It blows my mind!

              I bet there'd be a big party at your house, if that happened.

                You wouldn't celebrate a traitor being exterminated?

                No party but yes, we happen to think a lying POS shouldn't occupy the White House and if he is found to be a traitor should be brought to justice.  For the record, I oppose the death penalty.  Let him rot in prison.

                  I too oppose the death penalty in most instances, but a person who betrays his country for his own gain deserves to be made an example of. Some of his children--and at least one in-law-can occupy a jail cell in his stead.


                  I don't hate Trump, but he's like other vermin in that they must be exterminated before they multiply.

                  For the record, I think the whole thing is bs but if he is guilty of treason, I say the death penalty is the least we can do.

                    That's a possibility LTL, but this is simply a hypothetical now, but does pertain to future similar instances.

            I agree. Though I think Trump is older, and likely close enough to death, that serving in a REAL prison would be the greater punishment. He'd have to check in protective custody to avoid some very bad things, but the guards can always look the other way.

      In the eyes of the law, Donald Trump has already committed enough atrocious felony crimes to warrant conviction and the penalty of capital punishment, for example using our national airwaves to ask Russia to commit espionage against the USA and his willingness to accept said stolen property from the foreign spies, but i think life imprisonment would be more suitable:

      A life sentence in a border prison with a beautiful big picture window giving him a perfect view to watch all those brown people easily leaping over his useless concrete wall: Then, a humiliating public shower with Bubba and the big bad inmates:
