The ever-expanding list of Republicans mired in scandal, just in the past year.
If the Democratic party did this much crap over a 10 year period it would be another 10 years before I'd even consider voting for anyone in the party again...

Is it bad that I looked at the numerous links in this post, briefly considered delving into them, sighed, and thought, "If it's good enough for him (OP) it's good enough for me?"

and when he get indicted, you'll say "it not for leak, just lying about leak, and he not be convicted."  when he get convicted, you'll say "he innocent, but plead guilty anyway to spare his family/country/party/president."

and you'll still be numbnuts, numbnuts.
