Response to Hortensis (Reply #49)

50. Totally agree. But I guess my only point is the opinion

of our side, based on lack of legitimate action ( not fascist techniques) that builds up and creates a feeling in people that we over analyze consequences and hem and haw so much and people aren't ultimately held to account.

This may not be true here at DU, but it is among many Dems who speak out in other forums.

I Immediately think of a relatively low priority event as an example. Corey Lewandowski was "allowed" to honor a subpoena on Mueller findings. Yes, he showed up, but stonewalled. Nadler threatened to hold him in contempt. But nothing was done ( correct me if I missed it). IOW, for whatever reason, he got away with it. Small episodes like this build up over time. It gives many Dems the impression that we don't always do as much as we could to hold people accountable within legitimate avenues. I don't think "we didn't pursue it because it would have taken forever" holds up over time as well as the actual act of holding him in contempt would, in this example.

Hoping this all becomes moot now that trump is gone.
