It’s almost like a guy who had faced near constant litigation since before most of us were born knows how to avoid legal land mines.

What's your opinion on the actual conduct he's engaged in? Seems pretty bad to me.

edit: The conduct described in the Mueller report. If you mean pre-election early life, no.

He's an erratic, media-addicted, blowhard with poor hiring habits who keeps his own counsel and may (or may not) be brilliant. He also has no real legislative or regulatory agenda, lacks an appetite for details, and seems to have no interest in learning about the government processes that have stymied his agenda (so that he can overcome or eliminate those roadblocks).

By ridding our political process of the likes of Flynn, Gates, Manafort, et al..., Meuller has done Trump, the Republican party, and the nation a great favor (and more than paid for the investigation in the process).

Declassifying the investigation docs is the axe Trump has held over the left’s head for a long time. This will not destroy the left, but it will takeout a bunch legally and whatever is left of some of the others credibility will be gone.

But what is going to come out has been available for a while from a few journalists. Now we are going to see the dirty details.

Like I said in the beginning, at the end of this whole thing a lot more Dems will end up in jail then Republicans by far. And they all will be for criminal behavior, not process crimes, except Mr Obama’s White House counsel.

Qanon called, they think you need to dial it back a bit.

I’ll stand on my track record of being correct.

We will see.

So he will attempt to use our country’s most protected intelligence in order to take out his enemies, but his tax returns are verboten.

Nice

None of this is hard to figure out. Just follow the money.

In 2008, Donald Jr. .... “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,”

Eric in 2014 ... “We don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.”
Don’t believe everything you think.
