  1. Think of what politics would be like now if he had received his just punishment… as it is, he’s an example that the politicians use to justify their getting away with everything without punishment.

    1. “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.” It’s bad enough that we allow our presidents to think they are above the law while in office.
