Team Sporty and Jammer.- I've said many times that I'm all for bringing justice to all the wrong doers, regardless of which side they're on. Where I get frustrated is the unequal application of justice. There's no proof of Trump-Russia collusion, yet we have a team of clearly biased prosecutors, with obvious conflicts of interest investigating everything they can find under the sun, most of which has nothing to do with with Trump-Russia collusion. Conversely we know that the Clinton campaign paid to have Russians provide dirt for the dossier and people seem to shrug, as if that's not a clear & proven example of Clinton-Russia collusion.
- I think most all "conservatives" agree Paul Manafort is a scumbag & I've not really heard anyone complain about him being charged. I think kicking in his door at 5:00am and holding he and his wife at gunpoint was disgusting, but I have no doubt that Manafort failed to register under FARA & I don't doubt for a second he hid some of that money he earned from the IRS. My issue here again, is the unequal application of the law. i.e. Since 1966 the DOJ has only brought charges under FARA 15 times. In the entire history of FARA there's only been one conviction. Failing to file under FARA is the DC equivalent of jaywalking. The standard operating procedure is to tell the individual to register retroactively and it's over. Manafort though got a different kind of justice.
- Conversely, look at the denial from the left about what is going on in the DOJ/FBI/NSA/FISA court. It's already been decided by the NSA, FBI & FISA court that the FBI was illegally submitting FISA applications and that they broke the law by letting private parties access the FISA database. A dozen high ranking FBI/DOJ/FISA judges have been fired, demoted, recused or suddenly resigned and yet we continue to see the absolute denial of any wrongdoing. Andrew McCabe is a perfect example. The FBI recommended immediate dismissal, so Sessions did. Instead of admitting that it must be pretty ugly for the FBI to recommend this type of immediate dismissal of a 23 year FBI exec, they've twisted this into some blood lust by Trump.
