Both political parties love a good scandal; provided that it happens to the other party. Democrats feasted on Watergate and Republicans made the most of Bill Clinton’s extracurricular activities.
Waiting for a scandal isn’t good enough anymore. Now parties create them by making them up or dredging up the past. The most egregious example is the Texas district attorney who has indicted a number of prominent Republicans. The supposed collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign has been investigated for nearly a year now. The only evidence so far is the phony dossier that the Democrats bought and paid for. The indictments this week had absolutely nothing to do with the campaign.
Presumably the Republicans are investigating Hillary Clinton as payback. There is some questionable behavior on her part. However, using government resources to punish a past foe is a waste of money. It is also stupid politically. She is yesterday’s news and going after her won’t get the GOP a single vote next year or in 2020.
I was a lifelong Democrat but am now totally disgusted with both parties. I believe there are millions of people that feel the same way. So far we haven’t found someone to speak for us but eventually we will be heard.
