7. It's a new world of corruption and ...

... partisan politics this asshole has has wrought in our government and institutions, and we have to stop applying the standards from the past. Meuller and Rosenstein are career professionals from the previous era. They can separate their personal politics from their job. Iím not so sure all of the new guys can or are even inclined to do that. Just imagine if Steven Miller had obtained a law degree in his spare time between klan rallies in college (entirely possible - you can get a law degree in night school). If he had been appointed to an AG position, do you think there is anything he wouldnít do to push his twisted agenda and that of Trump? I donít know if there is a Miller among Trumpís appointees, but can you be sure thereís not?

Iím not picking at you, and Iím sorry for jumping into this conversation between you and another poster. I genuinely wish I could say I agree with you that institutions like the DOJ and FBI are above reproach. They should be, and Iím inclined to think most of them still are. But Trump is on a mission to undermine them for that very reason, and I am kind of cynical about what Iíve seen this last year and a half. I never say never anymore when it comes to how low they are willing to go.
