But if I were Mueller and had him dead to rights, i would offer him a get out of jail card.

In exchange, I would ask for a full throated videotaped admission of guilt with resignation. Such admission would need to include enough information to make it clear that he duped his supporters and the whole thing was a scam.

This would take the air out most of the resistance that you mention. The hard core conspiracy theorists would find a way to believe what they want and would still act out. But those loons are in a constant state of low-level revolution anyway.

I know this seems to kind but by reasons are all practical.

Let's say we did try to send him to jail. Do you honestly think he will ever spend a day in prison? The trial would be a circus beyond anything imagined by OJ on crack. Even the basic logistics of trying to seat a jury would be impossible since no one would pass the most basic questions of jury selection. Meanwhile, we will have the worst of both worlds. Trump (still President) on a rampage AND his supporters going crazy.

I would pass on the whole circus for a solid confession that would undermine the vast majority of his support.
