He does not deserve this. Cronyism is common everyday in Washington.

So if one person gets away with murder, then murder must fine and dandy?

He committed crimes and got prosecuted. You don't agree like others, because he is a democrat.

Murder goes on all the time in Washington too. Should we ignore it because some get away with it?

So nothing should be done about it just because it's common? Maybe if it wasn't so ignored, it wouldn't happen as much. Hopefully this will send a message and will be a first step towards stopping this sort of behavior.
