The charges against the President will likely come in state court, where the POTUS has no pardon power.
What makes you think that? Mueller doesn't have state jurisdiction. So he would have to hand off info to a state where the crimes were committed, and then they would have to do their own investigation to substantiate everything. I am curious how many people actually go to jail for failure to pay state taxes instead of federal.

It's what they have done with others like Manafort, Flynn, Papadopolous, and Cohen, isn't it? I am actually not certain which of those are state vs federal trials, but I know that at least some of them are state level.

As far as I know, none of them have been charged with state crimes. Cohen plead guilty to federal crimes for campaign finances. Manafort was found guilty of federal tax crimes. Flynn and Papa plead guilty to federal crimes (lying to the FBI).

If he's against putting the common citizen before corporations and their billionaire CEO's, then yeah, he's a traitor in my eyes.

On a side note.

A government photographer told investigators that he intentionally cropped photos of President Donald Trump's inauguration to remove empty space and make the audience look larger, according to newly released documents.

Another humorous side note. Trumps walk of fame star keeps getting vandalized. It’s been destroyed several times. It’s been destroyed by sledge hammer. One guy built a simulated Mexican wall around it. Today they put simulated jail bars over it.

I love it. I hope eventually they'll just yank the thing out and take his star away.

They don’t do that. There are child molesters and rapists who still have their stars.

And I don’t think vandalism as a form of political protest is likely to change a lot of minds, or make a positive contribution to the rapidly deteriorating political culture in this country.

It didn’t change my mind and it only pisses off Trump supporters but, it did put a smile on my face.
