The depth of corruption of this administration and the "liberal fascists" who call themselves Democrats is just unbelievable. If this were a Republican administration, the Dan Rather wanna-be's in the media would have had these scandals on the front page every day.

Mr. Russell: With what part of the U.S. Attorney's analysis do you take issue? Specifically?

Given that the USAttorney has decided not to prosecute, this would seem an appropriate time for the House Reform Committee to grant immunity to LLerner. Let's see if they do.

I agree with Publius. Contempt of Congress was a stretch. Maybe she concealed evidence, but that's a completely different question.

DNC Troll (aka "Publius Novus"): Not one word of it. All you do here with your non-stop defenses of Democrat corruption is remind us that for liberals in general and Democrats in particular, lying - up to and including felony perjury - is one of the chief sacraments of the Liberal Fascist Church. As was so comprehensively demonstrated in 1998 during Bill Clinton's impeachment proceedings. On the day the House voted out two articles of impeachment for Clinton's felonies - Obstruction of Justice and Perjury, the entire leadership of the Democratic Party went to the lawn of the White House and literaly toasted Clinton with champagne for committing those felonies. That was followed by every single Democrat in the Senate putting their party ahead of their country and voting to keep that lying felon in office. Every. Single. Democrat.

Mr. Russell: Just as I thought. There is nothing specific in Mr. Machen's opinion letter with which you disagree. You just don't like Democrats. Or liberals. Or progressives. Or Bill Clinton. That's your right of course. But it isn't very persuasive.
