No problems here. Let's go back to the Clinton Foundation and the emails. Right Mr. MM?

Paul, can we get your analysis? I'm very eager to hear it. As a law prof that doesn't teach tax, I'm jonesing big time for some solid legal analysis here. How big a deal is this? Could Trump be personally liable? Is there plausible federal criminal liability? State criminal liability? Thanks in advance ....

Publius Nadler,

Congress should investigate both foundations. How's that? Unlike you, I have no partisan axe to grind. I don't know what they'll find with Trump, but with Clinton, I'm already satisfied based on the evidence made public by Wikileaks that influence peddling took place vis-a-vis the Haitian earthquake fiasco...
