Is plead guilty the same as convicted

This is why the US government has a 95% conviction rate. This extreme rate is not about skill and justice, but is about having a larger army, who can play dirty for years, motivated by swamp career boosting. Many of these accused of anything will take a plea deal, instead going into debt, and still get railroaded in the end. The same corrupt swamp system of justice can also have all the data needed for a speedy conviction, like with Hillary, but hardly spend a dime. Hillary's plea deal was when elected I will not railroad you.
