What exactly does "most likely not legal" mean?

It means it's still legal though, right? Perhaps not entirely ethical, and it may take an exact and particular interpretation of the law as written to come to that conclusion, but it is still "legal", right?

Most Likely Not Legal - you need to copyright that phrase, because with Hillary winning next week, there is going to be a lot of that shit going on for the next 4 years!

For example, Hillary's use of a private email server for Secretary of State communication was "most likely not legal" - would that be an appropriate use of your new phrase?

Oh, and by the way, if the Times is going to be writing any articles about taxes, they need to interview more than just Lee A. Sheppard, or at least attribute more than one line to her. Like, how about Christopher Bergin or Joseph Thorndike, also at Tax Analysts. Limiting it to just a one-liner from Sheppard is like writing an article about great directors in Hollywood's history, and then never even talking to Spielberg, Cameron, or Scorsese.

Re:Clinton. PEople need to get 'against policy' and 'not legal' straight, the crossover is just silly at this point.

First line of action - coming after tax lawyers in Ohio.

Is this news if it's exactly the same as what was said weeks ago?

Isn't Trump audited by the IRS every year anyway? They haven't taken him to court for failure to pay taxes, so isn't it just common sense to assume he hasn't done anything illegal?

Unless *gasp* you don't trust the government agencies?

It means it possibly contravenes exisiting laws but only because nobodies taken it to a court of law it is still legal.
