The norms of ethical conduct do not much matter in Washington anymore and the White House has been emboldened by it. Unfortunately the people perpetrating this are also the people who control investigation into it.

The fox is strolling the henhouse folks.:eek:

Indeed.
If President Obama's Chief of Staff had done this Republicans in Congress would have been calling for his head.

As long as it wasn't an ORDER, doesn't seem illegal. Since he didn't have authority to give an order, it wasn't.

Seriously?

Is there ANY ethical line you will find unacceptable, or can Trump indeed shoot someone on 5th Ave?

You obviously don't care about pussy grabbing, lying, corruption of government or removing citizens rights....perhaps when YOUR healthcare gets chopped you might react but, probably not.

the tactic of the left and their propaganda machine is to drum beat anti-trump rhetoric every night decrying trump as a bad, bad, man, until they turn the public against him.

They did it with Bush and after a while it actually worked, people started to think, "hey maybe he isn't smart...maybe he did know there were no WMDs...maybe it is about the oil...maybe he does eat babies"

The problem for the left is that many people have woken up and now realize the press is bias and not trustworthy (Though fools that hate trump will always eat whatever their fed).

people who adamantly hate trump live in a world of circular reasoning. any story comes back to "he is a bad, bad, man" and any good comes back to "was forced on him" or "it was really due to Obama".

I don't get passionate about it. I'm ok supporting Trump and am ok if others don't. that's a blessing of utilizing intellect to think instead of relying solely on emotion.
