I know a certain former President who will soon face charges for tax and insurance fraud - and won't be so lucky to get house arrest...

I wonder if there's room at Rikers Island for the Golden Trump statue?

2 suspended years and 1 of house arrest, I am not sure we can call that jail term ...

Although it may not look like much, I'm glad that the prosecution of former presidents is a thing because it's one step in the right direction. For rule of law to thrive, the system must not be shy at prosecuting former leaders.

That being said, I agree with lincolnman about a certain someone who should face the law.
