Try not to be obtuse, Brown. First of all, Larry Craig did NOT have to “reimburse” the treasury the money he used in his own defense because THE TREASURY DIDN’T PAY FOR HIS DEFENSE.
That may or may not be true, I really don’t know, but the fact remains that Craig had to repay the US Treasury, but I realized that I read the total amount he was to pay, I assumed all of it was to be remanded to the US Treasury. Turns out, only $197k of it was returned to the Treasury the other $45k was a civil penalty.
From the following:
United States Court of Appeals
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT
Argued October 7, 2015, Decided March 4, 2016
Nobody has come up with any CRIME that President Trump might have committed, let alone a conviction. This whole witch-hunt is a search FOR a crime…not for evidence of a crime they already know about.
Obstruction is a crime and it’s pretty obvious to those who are paying attention that Trump is obstructing, he admitted it. Establishing a motive is the reason for the investigation.
Now I try to be fair, and in all honesty, I think Muller’s investigation is sweeping pretty wide. My suspicion is that once he started looking into Trump’s dealings it was like cleaning a dirty spot on a car, once you start, you have to clean it all. Once they got to looking, my guess (and it’s just a guess) is that there was a LOT of there, there. Hence the reason Muller is renting a warehouse (A WAREHOUSE!!) to store evidence…lol
Same thing happened during Watergate. There were some instances where incidents were uncovered having nothing to do with the original investigation that was eventually prosecuted.
We’ll all find out when the results are made public.
