Feb 10

and have been for years. From the beginning all I heard was how tough and fair and honest and forthright and what a great prosecutor he is. Sorry I don't see it all I see is a wishy washy don't hurt any ones feelings put off till tomorrow what should have been done yesterday. Between him Comey and Barr have put the Democratic party back decades not to mention federal law enforcement. If he had any stones he would resign.
