An Insanity Plea for Trump? Professor Tribe says, 'Yes'. [View all]

https://www.rawstory.com/trump-s-legal-team-should-have-him-plead-insanity-harvard-law-professor/

'Trump's legal team should have him plead insanity: Harvard law professor'

'Constitutional law expert Lawrence Tribe tweeted this Sunday that Donald Trump's legal team should get him to plead insanity if he goes to trial.'

I don't see Trump agreeing to this but, hey, could happen (my words). What do you think?
