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.

Trump withdraws from Paris Accords. Putin trolls US with "patriotic hackers".

Another Obamacare repeal attempt next week. While this isn't expected to be 100% rollback, details are kept in secret.

Georgia 6th went to GOP, this will embolden Congress to push more aggressive agenda.

Perhaps this will encourage Republicans in Congress to better represent their constituents.

Only fitting for a bill that had to be "passed in order to find out what's in it."

I in no way condone this behavior. I do, however, find it more than mildly amusing that the very same people who were willing to "jump, pole vault and parachute" over the will of the American people to pass the ACA, are now screaming about the "tactics of secrecy."

At the same time, I'm more than mildly annoyed with the people who proposed a 3 week moratorium on any vote, to allow for plenty of time for comprehension and dissection of a bill, now trying to push things through on the sly.

I am with Kaotic on appreciating irony of reversed roles and behaviors.
