jcblass - I hate to break it to all of you, but nothing substantial is going to happen from the Durham investigation. Not because there hasn't been any criminality, but simply because traditional Republicans, and their ilk, don't have the stomach for an all out political street fight such indictments might require. They are just too weak and "respect the frame work of democracy." They are not going to do anything drastic that could, in anyway, shake the foundation, cause doubt, or change the status quo. They are "conservatives" for a reason. They like "gradual change over a long period of time." That's their philosophy and it seeps into all parts of their life. Even criminal investigations.
All this changes when Democrats take over. Every major cabinet member in the Trump administration will have every detail of their life examined by independent investigators. No one will come out unscathed. This is what radicals do, this is the core of their philosophy and it seeps into all parts of their life. Even criminal investigations.
Durham will probably announce “criminal wrong doing” by a handful of outlier people and that’s it. All of you people that think Mueller, Clapper, Brennan, Obama, Rice, etc are going to be seriously investigated or indicted will be sorely disappointing.
On the other hand, all of team Trump better lawyer up, because the Democrats will come for them, with or without merit. If there is no merit, they will make it up. They fight to win. The Republicans, outside of Trump and a few allies, are all pussies.
Not sure those generalizations are applicable. The GOP was pretty rabid for Benghazi investigations. Both sides are rabid if they smell blood or really want to push their agenda.
Just different sides of the same coin
You are out of your mind if you think the right is in any way comparable to the left. If the left was in power right now, and it was days before an election, there would be leaks and aggressive action by the justice department.
The Republicans don’t want to do anything with the Durham because there is an election. They don’t want to be seen as politicizing the investigation. Republicans actually care about the optics of these things, whereas the Democrats would go scorched earth if given such a clear hand at doing damage.
The Democrats will politicize anything, the Republicans are worried about optics and “the integrity of the investigation” simply because they don’t want to be that different side of the same coin. This is why the Democrats behaved how they did regarding Trump, and now after three years the Republicans have done nothing with Obamagate/Spygate…one nobody lawyer pled to some bullshit.
And Benghazi should have been investigated, it was current news, however, it was over and done with in a couple news cycles and had zero impact on the election. Again, if roles were reversed and Trump did the same thing, there would be article of impeachment already filed…
The Republicans are not even in the same stratosphere when it comes to political street fights. Too nice, which is why they lose.
