    Who did Obama pardon?

    An accusation aimed at Kavanaugh deserves an investigation. You prefer to dismiss it...as you do any accusation aimed at Trump.

    Decades? Stretching the truth, aren't you? You want to pretend that the administration was right to tell the press that she worked for the CIA. They weren't...and she had been working overseas within a year or so of being outed. The fact is that the administration didn't care and didn't check. There was no reason to blow her cover except to teach Wilson a lesson...criticize us and see what happens.

    It's nice of you to admit it was blown before all this, now if you could just come to grips with BDS and admit that it was the State Department who gave Novak her name there would be hope for you..............

    I am sure Plame because she was undercover drove from her mansion in suburban DC to Langley in Groucho Marx glasses and a fedora. I am sure her husband (who has no credibility) was also part of the ruse by introducing her at socialite parties as his "spy wife".

    A 36 year old accusation (maybe, did Ford ever decide when this happened?) with no evidence and no corroborating witnesses would not get an investigation anywhere in this country. It is a political hit job that the Democrats sat on for 6 weeks and used it as a nuclear option. Scumbags.

    The Russian collusion investigation is another smear job by your lovable cohorts and should be dismissed.

    Justice died in 2000, Bush v Gore. It was reburied in 2016 and remains a relic of the past.

    Four different members of the Bush Administration (and that would include the State Dept), told 6 different reporters that Plame worked for the CIA. Novak was the only one to publish an article blowing her cover.

    The allegation that Wilson introduced her as his spy wife is false.

    Oscar Lopez Rivera was not in jail for a bombing. He was in jail from 1981 to 2017. He was not pardoned. , López Rivera was arrested on May 29, 1981 and tried by the United States government for seditious conspiracy, use of force to commit robbery, interstate transportation of firearms, and conspiracy to transport explosives with intent to destroy government property.

    I tend to think sending Susan MacDougal to jail for 18 months for contempt when she was being rolled by the Starr investigation might have been a critical wound...

    Well, the horrible secret is that we have never meted out justice fairly, we only lost the mythology that it was meted out fairly. This is what is at stake here. Are future generations going to believe in the mythology of justice or are they going to see it truthfully? Mythology plays a role in any society, it binds it together. When the stories and myths about societies are no longer believed, that society will crumble from within. We may be at that point right now. None of us believe we are a democracy anymore. That is obvious. But we used to believe it did we not? Half of us think the government is incompetent, the other half wants to make it better. Who wins? More than half of us think evolution is wrong, how does that form a foundation for the future? No, we are on the cusp of a generational change as us boomers die off and our kids take over. Let us hope the last gasps of the boomer generation are "honey, do the right thing, we tried and failed."
