What should disturb any regular Joe (on either side of the ideological divide) is that a weaponized FBI or other formally trusted LE agencies can easily ruin their lives if this could happen to the nominee of a major political party that became potus.

Worse, even if only 25% of what is alleged is true, heads should roll with many a person being perp walked to jail (if if they are not convicted).
Without that, few will ever trust government prosecution of the average citizen, and most will lose faith in our governments ability to fairly enforce the laws against the ruling class.

We Americans have always been against the idea of a royal aristocracy, because those people were always above the law, and could literally get away with murder.
But when you have political dynasties like the Bush's & Clinton's that are perceptually if not literally above the law, how is it much different than bloodline power?

VERY SMALL maybe 1% of the media leans right. Yet CNN, NBC, MSNBC, COMCAST, ABC, CBS, PBS, AP, Reuters, New York Times, Washpo, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and all the rest, are Far Left Democrat.

Sorry, but I can't treat seriously anyone who thinks even agencies like AP and Reuters are far left, or anyone who classifies the Washington Post with Twitter.

Sounds like your issue because they ARE that. Self deception by definition can't be perceived by the sufferer.



They love you for it.

So a book by Andrew McCarthy claiming a conspiracy against poor defenseless Donald Trump? Color me unconvinced. Meanwhile

Hillary Ruins the Plan

There really was a collusion plot. It really did target our election system. It absolutely sought to usurp our capacity for self-determination...
The collusion delusion is over.

Time to move on.

Ever since Obama and Hillary had the meeting right after he was elected in 2008 I knew there was a plan to install Hillary. That is why she didn't run against Obama and why she didn't work too hard in the election. She was promised the position.

No,

Plan A was to get (install) Hillary Clinton as president. This required exonerating her from well-founded allegations of her felonious and politically disqualifying actions.

Plan B was the insurance policy: an investigation that Donald Trump, in the highly unlikely event he was elected, would be powerless to shut down.
