The downside of course is that liberals, Democrats ans the press will be calling for criminal investigations of Republicans forever. We’re going down that road anyway.
If Lerner and Rice are actually convicted of crimes, I’ll eat my hat. It’s a very long shot. But if I’m correct about the level of corruption, Nixon was an amateur. A couple of break-ins. A slush fund. A failed attempt to get the CIA to get the FBI to back off. These are minor compared to the crimes under the Obama administration.
If you use the apparatus of government to gain an advantage over political rivals, using the tax code, federal spy agencies or even the post office to do your dirty work…you deserve to be locked up.
