        Dershowitz goes on about typical prosecutors but forgets -convenient that the Justice
        department policy mean he cant indict Trump.
        Its not a usual prosecutor arrangement, they get the evidence from the police and then ‘build the case’. In this situation Mueller was both evidence gatherer and prosecutor- as Congress intended. The evidence is for Congress to take up the indictment as the Constitution allows.
        Mueller as a special prosecutor acts more like the French judicial prosecutors, closest example in NZ is Serious Fraud Office who cover both areas of investigation and prosecution. The Police at the minor end of crime do the same thing, prosecuting in court

          “Mueller as a special prosecutor acts more like the French judicial prosecutors,”

          Yes. The French do not have a presumption of innocence.

            Nor does Belgium, as far as I know; it’s the Code Napoleon.

    The is so much criticism, outrage, protests at Western Governments wanting to ban the Milan or Gurkha, I wonder how many will get exercised enough to protest outside the Iranian Embassies around the world at this:

      Gurkhas are not banned anywhere; I don’t know about ‘Milans’ (Milanese ?)

      If someone walked around naked or even half-naked in the US or any other Western country, they would be unable to go to school or find work like that. All places have some sort of restrictions.
