I will NEVER forget that they impeached Bill Clinton for a perjurious statement

In the midst of a witch hunt of a spurious nature.

Jeff Sessions lies under oath before Congress. I remember 1999. I remember Tom Delay.

"This nation sits at a crossroads. One direction points to the higher road of the rule of law. Sometimes hard, sometimes unpleasant, this path relies on truth, justice and the rigorous application of the principle that no man is above the law. Now, the other road is the path of least resistance. This is where we start making exceptions to our laws based on poll numbers and spin control. This is when we pitch the law completely overboard when the mood fits us, when we ignore the facts in order to cover up the truth.
No man is above the law, and no man is below the law. That's the principle that we all hold dear in this country."

I remember James Sensenbrenner.

"What is on trial here is the truth and the rule of law. Our failure to bring President Clinton to account for his lying under oath and preventing the courts from administering equal justice under law, will cause a cancer to be present in our society for generations. I want those parents who ask me the questions, to be able to tell their children that even if you are president of the United States, if you lie when sworn "to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth," you will face the consequences of that action, even when you don't accept the responsibility for them."

I remember Bill Frist.

"I will have no part in the creation of a constitutional double-standard to benefit the President. He is not above the law. If an ordinary citizen committed these crimes, he would go to jail."

Accordingly, Congressional Republicans should apply these brilliant ethical standards to their own. Right? Ha.

Why do Republicans always get to play Warden, even when their record proves them to be the Prisoner? How can one group hold a monopoly on moral ambivalence? The hypocrisy is so stark, it disturbs the soul.

6. For 8 years, Republicans parsed every word Obama said

to try in some fantastical way to twist it into an impeachable lie.

And here we've got a Republican in office who has a
diarrhea of lies spewing from his hateful piehole
and stubby twitter fingers every day. WTF, WTF.

7. Answer: They get away with it because WE (DEMS) don't punish them harshly enough when we can

When they control Congress, they have endless investigations and hearings over imaginary crimes and fake scandals, and when we control Congress, we're all about taking impeachment off the table and "looking ahead" despite their actual crimes. Now that Trump has the presidency, he wants fake investigations of his fake wiretap allegations. When we had the presidency, there was real evidence that suggested collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, and yet we didn't launch an investigation for fear of looking "too partisan". And so on, and so forth.

The GOP is run by career criminals and serial liars. They are rotten, sleazy, and totally corrupt. We have repeatedly failed to hold them to account when we had the chance. As long as we let them get away with it, they will.
