Truth, Justice, and the American Way (Part 1b Andy v. Robert)

 

(Continued from “Truth, Justice, and the American Way – Part 1a Andy v. Robert“)

If Republicans are not careful, Obama’s most enduring legacy may be a perversion of federal power to ensure that no GOP, present or future, can be assured safety from prosecution or persecution (see protests against Trump staff or the legal fees and testimony under oath many experienced). Democrats started using the law and federal power against Americans they considered opponents during the Obama administration…improperly surveilling specific reporters like Rosen and Attkisson, using IRS to target conservatives to name a couple of examples. As the Obama era wound to a close, things like having key members of the FBI/DOJ upper echelon go rogue, or changing the rules to allow several agencies to receive classified information must have been a piece of cake.
