what, why not? He did the damage, now his value is diminishing.. Russia did its "you can come here, we protect you from USA", and now the stick gets old.. time to swap him.. question is: do the US (speak: Trump admin) want him that bad? If so, for what? Trump has no interest in bringing him to justice, unless there's something to be gained from it
