What would be "restitution" (to Americans) if the tRump regime is convicted of collusion?

As the multi-faceted investigation by Robert Mueller plows onward, let's say eventually (like many expect) the smoking guns reveal many crimes.

Putting aside tRump attempting to pardon everyone he knows, what would be the restitution for said crimes paid back to the American People? That is, would there be any such thing?

Seeing tRump's obstruction etc. landing him impeached or resigned would be satisfying, but then what? Would Neil Gorsuch step down and hand over his SCOTUS robes to Merrick Garland? Would every Executive Order from President Obama that tRump nixed be reinstated? A do-over election? Yea right (sarcasm)!

If tRump and his minions won the election illegally and by cheating, what do we get (other than not having to hear his daily bullshit and lies)?

1. Everyone needs to serve prison time

Prison is a given. Then all tRump assets should be seized and auctioned off. His presidency should be deemed illegitimate, and he should never appear in a list of US presidents (whoever is next should be 45). All congress people who aided and abetted him should be forced to resign and never be allowed to hold any kind of political office ever again. The republican party should be treated as a terrorist organization and be officially banned.

And the other things you mentioned...

2. Great suggestions!

Thanks ProundLib72

All this talk of nailing these traitors, but it does not end with their removal. We The People should have a long laundry list of paybacks. Sadly, some of the damage will be permanent.

4. All of the above plus nullifying and voiding the election from the fake

prez down to the local dog catcher (since people voted down ballot). Let Obama "fill in" while the Dems get their rightful White House and Congress back. Also re-do the tainted Gorsuch seat.

And to deter all future GOP criminals ( the criminal GOP is a more accurate term) from even thinking of doing anything similar I would like to have the guy from Pulp Fiction "get some of the homes and go medieval" on all their asses. Also, sell tickets and market it so we could all watch...the cash alone from ticket sales for the event would erase our national debt.

rethugs have been like that since before FDR. It's way past time for them to straighten up.

7. But . . .

there is a law against obstruction of justice as there are laws against money-laundering and participation in espionage.

What would I like to see personally? I want these suckers frog-marched in orange jumpsuits. I want the Republicans forever shamed for what they participated in: selling their souls and the integrity of the Nation to line their own filthy pockets.

That's what I want and even that's not enough.

11. It would be complex situation

A good start would be to cuff this impostor take him away and lock him up.invalidate his presidency and confiscate his money,send his hooker back to Russia.
Install an interim government while the whole election is redone.

12. This should be fun!

Throw the entire Trump administration in prison for life without parole. Expel all Russian diplomats and deport Melania Trump. Put his son Barron up for adoption.

Repeal all Trump's legislation and annul all his executive orders. Wipe his presidency from the history books.

Paint an official portrait of Trump. He will be dressed in a prison work uniform holding the license plate he just made. He will not be wearing Cheeto dust.

Erect a Trump Presidential Library. It will be in the visitor center of the federal prison he's in. The only things that'll be in it are Robert Mueller's findings and Trump's sentencing hearing on a continuous loop.

Install Hillary Clinton as president until 2020.

Name Stephen Reinhardt as Supreme Court Justice until he passes away, and then give the seat to Merrick Garland.

Decree the ballot of every person who voted for Trump to be invalid in its entirety.

14. Prision portrait...orange in orange!

Other than Barron not having to suffer the sins of his father, all else looks right on.

In reality, and if there is any justice in the universe - truth will be stranger than fiction and his entire regime will go down in shame and with humilation of epic proportions!

15. What would we do with Barron then?

If we deport his mom, lock up the rest of his family and sell his home, the only two choices we have are:

Choice 1: Throw his 11-year-old ass in the streets and force him to fend for himself
Choice 2: Find a nice young couple with many years experience in raising at-risk children, and bring him into their family.

Choice 1 is no choice at all. It'll lead directly to a life of crime, and we can only hope he'll get into relatively minor crimes like armed robbery and auto theft instead of the crimes his dad commits.

Choice 2 is much better.

17. Everything he did stays, unless later repealed

Order of succession applies just as it would if people left office for any other reasons.

There is no legal or Constitutional provision for any way to undo anything done by an administration retroactively, so whatever he has done is like what any other President has done and has to be undone by a later administration.
