    "High crimes and misdemeanors "   senate hearings congressional hearing , house sessions ,
    I don't care what the offences , how serious the offense  , or how long they remain in the courts of the media or courts of law , NO ONE  ever goes to jail and are hardly accountable to those offenses even IF THEY ARE actually indicted .

    Are there different standards , one for' you and I"  and another altogether for" them "?

      Remember the good ol' days (you know, last fall). when Trumpeters believed Trump would appoint a special prosecutor (because, you know, he said he would) to finally put Hillary in jail? Oh, the memories....Who could forget the lovely RNC crowd chanting "Lock her up! Lock her up!" Who was that honorable man who led those glorious cheers? Flynn, was it? Whatever happened to that exemplary leader....?

          I wasn't aware that you are clairvoyant. The investigation has barely begun. Perhaps you will be right. We will see.

      I found this list of politicians who were convicted of crimes.  Wikileaks isn't exactly accurate always, but it gives a larger picture of acting presidents' actions.  D's out number the R's in convictions, although I did not telly the numbers.  Big shock there!  wink wink

    Unlike the NEW - left ,  I would still rather ideological neutrality in these offices of government , lets the truths lead where they may , the lies fall where they stand , and the truth stand alone .

    I think the truth of the matter is that both parties know no crimes had been committed and the actions declared most heinous would not, had the average citizen done them, result in any jail time.

    All any of this is is grandstanding in an attempt to sway public opinion from any particular person or party. It's a waste of taxpayer money and an insult to those of us who wish government would do what we pay it to do.

      I agree there is grandstanding from both political parties to score points and discredit the other party.  If I understand you correctly, I cannot agree with this:  "....both parties know no crimes had been committed and the actions declared most heinous would not, had the average citizen done them, result in any jail time." Are you saying, for example, that Republicans proceeded with an investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server knowing no crime had been committed?

      Either I am misunderstanding your remarks, or this seems to contradict your previous statements on Clinton.
