Recently at a rally, Donald Trump told the crowd
Apparently, he is now considering making good on that promise, after a supporter attacked a protester. This case raised the question in my mind, is it typically legal in the US to specifically request someone to commit a crime and offer to help pay their legal fees if they do? IANAL, but this seems like something that could fall under conspiracy or make one an accomplice to the crime. Given that I’ve not heard anything about Trump getting in trouble for it, it seems that it might be legal though. Legal-minded Dopers, what do you think?
