Hot Take: And that’s a big piece of the much bigger conversation that needs to take place via a full accounting for the level of corruption within the State Department, Justice Department and FBI under the Obama administration. Until there’s actually evidence that we’re all equal under the law, there’s no reason to have confidence generally in any of those institutions because there’s publicly enough information available to show criminal behavior within all of them and yet no one’s been held accountable for anything and in fact one co-conspirator, Rod Rosenstein, is still effectively running the Justice Department because Happy Gilmore recused himself from working.
