    In light of the above, I find the notion that a POTUS cannot conduct the business of governing while also defending against a criminal investigation is pure poppycock. All the POTUS needs to do is actually devote his days to working -- actually reading and consuming detailed briefings and becoming excellently well-informed on public policy matters -- rather than sleeping late, watching television, focusing on miscellaneous matters that are beneath the office of the POTUS and tweeting all day long (because one learns not when one does the talking), and jaunting away on the weekends to play golf with entertainment celebrities.



    Note:
    1. Amid the Watergate investigation, Nixon also underwent an IRS investigation that resulted in his having to pay over $450K (~$2.3M in today's dollars) in back taxes and penalties. (See also: "JCT Investigation of Nixon’s Tax Returns")
    I find it amusing that you have debunked the notion that a president cannot conduct presidential duties while under investigation and you provide a substantial quantity of supporting evidence and the best the Trumpsters can come up with is "leftists need to grow up."
    That sucking sound you hear is the revolving door installed in the West Wing. Trump continues to hire the best people. Be careful, that door is about to start spinning faster than the rotors on Marine One.

    Clinton was investigated for whitewater and since there was nothing there to impeach him with they ended up impeaching him for lying about a blowjob. Big difference.

    Ken Starr, having nothing to pin on Clinton with Whitewater, decided to simply embarrass POTUS by asking about the Lewinsky affair. Why else would Starr ask about something that was not a crime? The stunning fact that Clinton chose to lie about it under oath was a gift of immense proportions.

    Clinton was impeached for lying about something that was embarrassing, not criminal.

    That is why it is imperative that Trump never, ever be put under oath.

    Still to afraid to dare to address the pints I make, but are reduced to being the "FONT POLICE".

    I don't blame you; much SAFER for you, to avoid the public pimp-slapping that would lead to.

    That is a serious weakness, Idio'.


    "POSTING POLICE" is a **** job...but good that you recognize your limitations.

    The only reason trump hasn't lied to congress is because he won't talk to them. His henchmen though lied and got caught but folks like you don't seem to care cause trump is a republican. Sad. Trump has told americans over a thousand lies, documented. The right really shouldn't claim they are righteous folks in favor of the rule of law.
