    The returns or receipts include all that is received from an outlay or investment; the profit is the excess (if any) of the receipts over the outlay; hence, in government, morals, etc., the profit is what is really good, helpful, useful, valuable.

Gain is what one secures beyond what he previously possessed. Benefit is anything that does one good. Emolument is profit, return, or value accruing through official position.

    Maria Butina is in the United States( court system) after an independent law enforcement process was undertaken. Maria Butina'll get a fair trial. Maria Butina has access to lawyers and Maria Butina will not be manipulated by a system that's controlled by an autocratic leader, paul Whelan is not going to have the same benefit while Paul Whelan's in Russia. Russian President Vladimir -RRB- Putin controls law enforcement in Russia. Russian President Vladimir -RRB- Putin controls the courts, and Russian President Vladimir -RRB- Putin controls propaganda. And thereby, we have to be very clear here that Paul Whelan may be brought before the courts on trumped-up charges with completely fabricated evidence and with a verdict already predetermined.
