These are major crimes against the US and they're offering letting him walk away ...

Doesn't make sense. If they cut a decade of prison, he would have done the deal. why did they have to go so far in letting him walk away?

shields him from prosecution within the SP's perview regarding the Russian involvement... which means he can still be charged, indicted and imprisoned for any other charges outside the Russian case. He may still end up in prison. I'm waiting for the big show come early January, I can wait a little longer for the fireworks. I just want to make sure the swearing in goes well. I put nothing past these thugs and half anticipate them creating a crisis to pre-empt the formalities.
