Nancy Pelosi, et al, are going into their shopworn “faux outrage” routine over President Trump’s criticism of the overly harsh sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone, calling it an “abuse of power” that has “deeply damaged the rule of law” and “must all be investigated” (seriously, Pelosi must mumble these clichés in her sleep by now.) But they conveniently forget that in at least two interviews, President Obama publicly signaled to his FBI and DOJ that Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be charged with gross negligence in handling classified documents, and Democrats raised nary a peep about it.
Bonus fact: Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe of the House Judiciary Committee reports that former FBI lawyer Lisa Page confirmed under oath that “the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information.”
I relate this knowing full well that the left will respond to it by dismissing it as “whataboutism.” That’s a term they recently coined that means “I have no response to disprove I’m being a big fat hypocrite, so I’ll just throw this made-up word at your argument and run.”
Finally, Tony Katz at WIBC in Indianapolis has some excellent comments on this, and how the shrill hysteria over Trump’s Roger Stone comments betray a desperation by the Democrats for something, anything, to keep their broken-down “investigate/impeach” wagon rolling.
