I *love* it when people assume that those of us who've been researching the Trump-Russia case for 18 months will suddenly start mumbling incoherently to ourselves when asked what statutes are implicated by the Mueller investigation...
But, yes, it's probably wise that people stop using the term "collusion" - which is the term that Trump forced onto the narrative precisely so that people could make idiotic statements like "collusion is not a crime" - and instead use the less easily strawmanned "conspiracy".
