united states. george herman is at capitol hill for the senate view on the question which now is being some sort ofher immunity might be offered to the president against prosecution for any wrongdoing in the white house during his administration. george? betweenegal discussion mike kelly with some interest. up here, i guess you would have to say it is not viewed so much as a legal question as it is as a political question. i think the members of the senate i talked to were more concerned with what they would call the particle political realities of the situation. some of them feel, for example, that if there were a sense of a congress resolution that the president should be granted prosecutors,t especially federal prosecutors under president gerald ford -- most federal prosecutors would not prosecute, not because -- because of the practical politics of the situation. some members of the senate see the question of immunity as part of what my colleague called plea-bargaining. i do not know if you could call it resignation plea-bargaining. they have been doing political old-fashioned body

his resignation. george her man is at capitol hill for the senate view on the question which now is being asked on whether some sort of immunity might be offered to the president against prosecution for any wrong doing in the white house during his administration. george? >> the legal discussion between my colleagues with some interest because up here i guess you would have to say it's not viewed so much as a legal question as it is as a political question. i think the members of the senate that i've talked to are more concerned with what they would call a practical political reality of the situation. some of them feel, for example, that if they were a sense of congress resolution, that the president should be granted immunity, that most probably most prosecutors, he is sfeshlly federal prosecutors under president gerald ford, most federal prosecutors would not prosecute not because -- but because of the practical politics of the situation. some of the members of the senate see the question of immunity as i guess what my colleagues call plea bargaining. it's pretty clear they've bee
