    I wouldn't believe it if I wasn't watching it happen.
    The motive of the left is suspect imo since some of the transgressions have reportedly been widely known about. Democrats are setting themselves up for a major wedge issue and Republicans are so focused on the political power struggle that everything else is secondary.
    An argument for due process could be made but not by Republican lawmakers that went after the Clintons & Weener with no regard for due process.

    It really is sad that this is where we are politically. We desperately need a viable 3rd party.

    As a libertarian, I love seeing the two parties make fools of themselves.

    We need two healthy parties. Nothing good can come from celebrating the degradation of our political process.

    Republicans are trying to have their cake and eat it too. I see them on USMB running victory laps as if one of their own wasn't very recently caught having gay sex in his office, and another isn't being accused of trying to fuck a 14 year old girl when he was in his 30s. :dunno:

    Deviant behavior has no party. There will be others like those accused/admitted. The difference is how we as a people hold them accountable despite politics.

    This isn't about proof lol. It's about perception.
    I realize that concept may be beyond the grasp of some but trust me, perception>everything else when it comes to politics.

    Until you want to accuse the Clintons of murder and the Democrats of running a pedophile ring out of a pizza shop. Then you can make any batshit statement you want without proof.

    That dozens of liberals and Dem's have been exposed as serial women abusers over the past few months may have had something to do with Dem's resigning. This is not an apples to apples comparison.

    It matters absolutely not about what motives you, or others, perceive in your minds. That boils down to partisanship.

    Besides, hasn't it always been said, especially for Trump supporters and apologists, that "we cannot know a person's heart" aka motives.

    The fact remains that the Democrats did it, and they have high ground here on this issue.

    Glad to see you being at least somewhat honest on this matter though.

    Kudos.
