Hoist by their own pseudo-scandal


This is a point that really hasn’t been made enough:

Republicans spent two years they spent pretending to care about Hillary’s compliance with information security best practices, and were able to sucker/coopt enough of the media to ride this snipe hunt right into the White House. But rather than just drop it once it achieved its intended purpose, they began to convince themselves of their own bullshit and made the mishandling of classified documents a much more serious criminal offense.

And now, since Trump is actually the extraordinarily corrupt figure they tried to convince themselves that Clinton was, they are having to argue that even investigating violations of the law they themselves created is completely improper. I myself don’t think that making the improper handling of classified material a felony makes much sense, but wasn’t some Democrat Party conspiracy. It was Republicans who put their god in the jam he now finds himself in.
