During an interview with CNN television host Wolf Blizter, Representative Joaquin Castro dropped a bomb on the American public with limited fanfare before hand.
He did not blink, he did not flinch, these words were spoken by an angry and confident man.

Mr’s Castro’s opinion is informed, he has been granted access to classified information that the general public does not have access too, and he is clearly miffed that House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes compromised the integrity of the investigation when he illegally briefed the White House without first consorting with his colleagues.
Or anyone else for that matter.
Given the serious nature of the alleged high crimes committed by Trump staffers during the election campaign, prison time has always been a possibility if the FBI can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Trump team was complicit in an international conspiracy to defraud the United States of America.
What exactly happened, and who is guilty of what will be determined in the months and weeks ahead, but Rep Castro statement should be a wake up call to everyone.
When Richard Nixon violated elections laws, and essentially committed perjury, even the most stringent sentencing guidelines would have put him in minimum security prison at the very worst.
This is much different, this is much more hostile, and dangerous to the American public than Watergate was.
There is nothing obscure about working hand in hand with Vladimir Putin and his agents, stealing the Presidency, then insulting the integrity of the entire country by pointing fingers at everyone as the scandal emerges.
This was an insurgency carried out at the behest of the Russian Federation, and they almost got away with it.
Castro’s not bluffing, the American system will see everyone go to jail if the situation calls for it, and that includes the President himself.
