2. Wow! Trump could be charged with manslaughter & murder 2. No PPE when he knew how

serious C-19 is & gave shipments to China! This is so messed up (like the bounties on our troops). It's no wonder he might not be sleeping well these days...

5. A president will never get charged over something like this,

any more than he'd be charged for murder due to, say, sending troops to war using intelligence known to be skewed. The consequences of presidential policy decisions, flawed as they may be proven to be, aren't considered criminally prosecutable.

3. depraved-heart murder

also known as negligent homicide and depraved indifference manslaughter.

In United States law, depraved-heart murder, also known as depraved-indifference murder, is a type of murder where an individual acts with a "depraved indifference" to human life and where such act results in a death, despite that individual not explicitly intending to kill. In a depraved-heart murder, defendants commit an act even though they know their act runs an unusually high risk of causing death or serious bodily harm to a person. If the risk of death or bodily harm is great enough, ignoring it demonstrates a "depraved indifference" to human life and the resulting death is considered to have been committed with malice aforethought.[1][2] In some states, depraved-heart killings constitute second-degree murder,[3] while in others, the act would be charged with varying degrees of manslaughter[4] or third-degree murder.

4. So, will the House begin impeachment proceedings right away and perhaps force a resignation?

Pence knew what Trump knew, he is guilty of withholding crucial information from Americans that caused the deaths of many as well.
Will the House Dems wait until after the election? Perhaps wait until new members of Congress are sworn in so that both House and Senate will be a Blue majority?
Is Trump's plane fueled and waiting on a nearby tarmac to take him and his family to Moscow?

6. I could see him as USAG

Next year. Something tells me he's got everything ready to go as soon as it's legal to proceed.
