Many enjoy a juicy scandal. News media can use them at attract viewers. Right now we have three scandals that are intertwined. There are real differences in their importance and the attention they attracted.
The Russia collusion scandal has had multiple investigations for over a year. So far the only evidence is a phony dossier bought and paid for by Democrats. It’s time to bring it to a conclusion.
There has been misconduct in in the Obamacare Justice Department and FBI. Some senior officials put politics over justice. The investigation of Hillary Clinton was clearly rigged. There was even discussion of an “insurance policy” to prevent Donald Trump from winning the election. This should be thoroughly investigated and appreciate charges filed.
The most serious scandal has been mishandled by both parties. Our democracy has been under attack by Russia. The leaking of DNC and Clinton campaign emails is just one aspect of their effort. They were involved in the primaries, have organized demonstrations and manipulated social media. The Obama administration was aware
of what was happening but chose to do nothing. Once Clinton lost the election, they imposed some weak sanctions. The Trump administration has done nothing. Everyone should be outraged at a foreign power interfering with our democracy.
It is time to focus on real misconduct instead of playing a game of gotcha.
