Are we about to hear a lot more about...

Fusion GPS?
The bank for opposition research firm Fusion GPS handed over financial records on Friday, after a Federal judge struck down the firm's attempt to conceal the records from the House Intelligence Committee the previous day.

One would think this country is a bastion of fascism the way the sore loser left has been depicting things since the election.

This position might make you feel good now, but it’s not going to do you any good in the long run.

All the hoopla is about this little detail, mostly being pushed on right wing sites:

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/ ... on-gps.php

Ol' Lindsay Graham was out on Meet the Press this morning obviously angry and shilling for an investigation of Christopher Steele. So, is something rotten at Fusion GPS, even though a Republican started the original investigation, or are all these connections to the Dems and Obama's DOJ just coincidences that played no part in the final product, the Steele Dossier?

Wherever it exists in government or elsewhere, corruption must be purged and punished. That goes for the democrats too. Nobody should be above the law.

I don't see you calling for the purging or punishing of Donald J. Trump.

If he does anything illegal, I do... Obama and the Clintons shouldn't get a pass simply because they're democrats.

So you're advocating for political prosecutions along the lines of what Imperialist and Communist nations like to do, prosecuting your political enemies, especially those you defeated in an election?

Trump is already exploring that area. How Soviet of him.

So how far is too far?
