My take on the GOP and law enforcement

If I understand the GOP's interrogation of Strzok today, FBI employees and by extension law enforcement in general who participate in the election or campaign processes automatically lose their capacity to objectively conduct criminal investigatations.

If that is true, how do we interpret endorsements sought by politicians from various law enforcement groups and officials? I just wonder how many inquisitors have or are doing so this election cycle.

May need to remind them of the hypocrisy

Reminds me of an old aphorism:

American women expect more of their husbands than English women expect of their butlers.

Seems like how the pubes look at law enforcement. Well, only in their direction.

and they'll fabricate bias out of whole cloth in order to pretend to be the victim anyway.

if someone in the fbi investigating hillary ever sent a text that was approving of donnie, does anyone think for one minute that republicans would say there was a problem with the investigation due to bias? hell no.

Lying, ignorance, and cruelty being among the other tenets they embrace.
