When people here in this thread start chanting "lock him up, lock him up", THEN you can go on about "presumption of innocence.

What you can't do is say that congress cannot do their duty and ask for Trump's tax returns. or ask to look at a report into Russian influence on the election because "presumption of innocence"

This is EXACTLY what congress is supposed to do. Act as a branch of government. Checking the other branch. Making them accountable.

"You can't look at the results of an investigation because presumption of innocence"

"You can't look at a president's tax forms after credible accusations of fiddling the IRS (out of Trump's very mouth), because presumption of innocence"

Both of these are wrong, wrong wrong.
