    It's okay to spy on them, use illegal wiretaps, threaten them off the record on numerous occasions ether over the phone or in person, yet this is the only instance of intimidation that matters to Democrats.

    In 2012 Clinton and Obama confident and carpetbagger mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel actually assaulted reporter Michael Hastings and nobody on the right or the left thought iit was a big deal in the rough and tumble world of politics. All of a sudden the lefties are outraged about some hurtful words spoken by a republican. A couple of years ago Va. democrat congressman Jim Moran who had a long history of anger problems assaulted a Black child. Lefties snickered when the statute of limitations prevented Clinton form being prosecuted for rape. Is it a double standard when it comes to republicans or is the sissie left faking it?

    My thoughts exactly. This Grimm character appears to be a grandstander, pulling a gun on someone in a bar and now intimidating this very frail-looking reporter.

    I hope this incident isn't swept under the crony carpet.

    It might appear that no one thought the Emanuel/Hastings incident was no big deal but Hastings was known by Emanuel's staff to be a relapsed drug (methamphetamine) addict, so Hastings was not willing to risk having that publicized.

    (Excerpt)

    The late journalist Michael Hastings had traces of drugs in his system when he died, the Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday.

    Hastings was killed in a car crash in Los Angeles in June. He was 33.

    The coroners who examined him found "traces of amphetamine in his system, consistent with possible intake of methamphetamine many hours before death, as well as marijuana," the Times wrote. "Neither were considered a factor in the crash, according to toxicology reports."

    The ultimate verdict: Hastings' death was an accident.

    The coroner said Hastings' family had been attempting to get him to go to detox at the time of his death, and that he had relapsed into drugs a month before he died, after 14 years of sobriety.

    Were it not for that unavoidably damaging revelation Emanuel could have been charged with a felony.

    No that is the way it works. He to goon camera and discuss one thing, The little turd blind sides him and then goes all Michael Moore after the guy walks away.
