I thought Horowitz was the honest broker? Wasn't his report supposed to be damning? At least the guys on Fox news, GOP strategist, and Republican lawmakers said it was.It probably is, I agree. But your side is playing games. Your side is summed up by people like Rudy arguing the President cannot commit a crime. The IG looked at the whistleblower, the AG told the IG to pound sand because it is impossible for the President to commit a crime in foreign affairs. I do not believe Durham is doing what I suggest, but the lack of professionalism by everyone will make that charge happen.
If Obama had called up a foreign leader and said, "hey, can you announce an investigation into Trump" you would have been aplopletic.
An IG found real issues with Fast and Furious, and rightfully so. Imagine your reaction if moments after that was released an investigator hired by Holder released a statement blasting the IG report. I sure bet you would not thought that person an honest broker.
I'm trying to have empathy. I'm trying to figure out what drives ordinary people to abandon logic, to abandon reason, and to ignore obvious truths- no matter how it is presented to them.
You were just accused of wearing a tin foil hat, by a man that has spent the last couple days screaming, "RESISTENCE!" " You seem to be very triggered by the idea that certain public officials are under investigation for exceeding their authority and manipulating the legal process in an effort to further the RESISTANCE!" Now, that's just great, until you remember that the FBI publicly announced opening an investigation into Clinton's emails just prior to the election, all while sitting on the fact that the Trump campaign was under investigation for Russian conspiracy efforts. If not for the FBI, there wouldn't be a President Trump.
Now back to the empathy. The only thing I can think of that ordinary people are gaining from acting in this irrational manner, is that they don't have to admit a mistake. Can anyone add to that? Am I missing something?
