It could be a campaign-finance-law violation. After all, opposition research is a ‘thing of value.’ There could be a conspiracy to defraud the United States by impeding the legitimate functions of the Federal Election Commission. Plus, Trump said his campaign had nothing to do with Russia. He lied to the public.” “Lying to the public is not a crime.” This is the sort of banter that went on all day Tuesday, following revelation of the devastating e-mail exchange between Donald Trump Jr. and Rob Goldstone. Plainly, both sides of the political aisle are badly misinformed about the Constitution’s take on executive misconduct. When president’s behavior is at issue, it is the Constitution, not the criminal law, that is paramount…. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/449401/trump-jr-emails-high-crimes-misdemeanors “President Donald Trump on Wednesday sought to refute allegations that the Russian government tried to help his presidential campaign and damage that of Hillary Clinton, arguing that his policies run counter to the Kremlin’s interests. “There are many things that I do that are the exact opposite” of what Russian President Vladimir Putin would want, Mr. Trump said in a television interview. “So what I keep hearing about that he [Mr. Putin] would have rather had Trump, I think—probably not.” https://www.wsj.com/articles/morning-after-email-release-trump-declares-sons-innocence-attacks-news-media-1499861198
