I don't think things are as bad as the Malicious Media makes out. And the left has been pushing this Russian nonsense since Trump secured the nomination, so the reluctance to prosecute due to political sensitivity doesn't float. If there was evidence, there would have been a prosecution of someone.

Obama always cared about appearances. Investigations at that level also take a long time. You have to remember that they thought Hillary had it in the bag. Giving the appearance that they were using prosecution to stifle a political opponent would have been dangerous. Media rumormongering and selective leaks are par for the course for both parties, but directly prosecuting opponents is still a bridge seldom crossed.

Plus, always remember that Comey was on Trump's side until Trump got elected and started demanding oaths of loyalty and interfered in investigations.

Comey has been on the Clintons side for years. He acted not to help Trump, but to keep Hillary from being prosecuted.

Honestly Owain had a point on this topic, and it isn't like Democrats don't gerrymander when they are able, to the same degree. And I really wouldn't call the GOP conservatives, especially Trump - that does a disservice to conservatives.

Sure, you could get into "no true Scotsman" arguments, but really, Trump is about as conservative - in the traditional USA sense - as Mussolini.

On a side note, I've been playing as Trump.... er... Mussolini in Heart of Iron IV, having picked it and the expansion up a couple days ago during a Steam sale. Really cool game.
