Nov 28 set for Trump's trial

His lawyer wanted it set for AFTER the inauguration but the judge said NO. So we could have for the first time one of two jail birds for prez elected. If you are indicted or convicted of a felony can you be swore in as President of the USA? Is there a provision for this? Interesting legal question IMO.

Also, something else I read in the paper today…for the first time a Muslim elected Mayor of London. That is interesting.

While the Trump University mess and Clinton's email mess will undoubtedly be discussed A LOT during the campaign, neither is likely to lead to much legally. With respect to Trump University, that is a civil suit, not a criminal case, so there's no threat of him being convicted of a felony with respect to that. It's possible that Clinton could be convicted of a crime - though it's important to keep in mind that she hasn't even been charged with criminal acts - but that is not looking all that likely.

Clinton will be cleared but that won't stop Trump from continuing with his "she's a criminal" stories, and his fans will lap it up.

As for the Muslim mayor of London; that's phenomenal from a cultural standpoint. He has a humble background and now has the "largest personal mandate of any politician in UK history" and has ended 8 years of conservative control of the city. Go Labour!

It's a sad state of affairs in this country that we are so scraping the barrel for great leaders that we are likely to have to choose from either of them if wanting to keep within the two main parties. I'd love to see both of them thrown in the hoosegow.

Well, back in 2000, we elected a POTUS/VP ticket of two guys with DUIs.
