    Run For Election Exempts You from the Law

    I mean, that's the argument right? I hear over and over the question asked....

    'Do you agree with POTUS asking a foreign government to investigate your political opponent'?

    Think about it... If Biden had not entered the race then this question, sans political opponent has merit?

    Just because a citizen decides to run for office, we are to exempt them from potential criminal activity?

    It's on Biden that he decided to run for the office of the Presidency and as such, consented to the scrutiny that comes with it

    Where does ANYONE say you should be exempt from the law because you are running for election? Oh yeah, nobody is saying that but you.

    What is being disagree upon is the concept that a sitting president cannot be indicted. YOU folks are the ones who are defending that concept.

    Right now, it's highly possible Biden is a player in a criminal investigation that could include treasonous activity.

    Nothing Trump did was illegal. That is why Schiff has slimed over to “Obstruction”, an even more nebulous and subjective argument.

    If he is convicted in a trial, then that sucks for him. What does that have to do with him not being bound by the law due to being a candidate?

    I don't really pay attention to Biden as I don't think its likely that he will be president, so not a good use of my time.

    What is being disagree upon is the concept that a sitting president cannot be indicted. YOU folks are the ones who are defending that concept.
    Article 1, Section 3 of the Constitution. It reads: “Judgment in cases of impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States: but the party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to indictment, trial, judgment and punishment, according to law.”

    As such, he must be impeached and convicted. Then he can be indicted etc.
