22. She needs a champion
She needs a champion in the senate and/or in the press who will work on her (and our) behalf with the vigor, insistence, and dogged determination that matches the drumbeat of hate produced by Dobbs or Gibson every day.

Problem is...let's say that every single voter in America becomes aware of the issue. What then? Sibel is so toxic that the courts, the FBI, congress, the press, and the executive branch all appear have stiff-armed her for 4 years. What kind of pressure would cause them to abandon this self-protection they feel is needed? Is there any amount of public pressure that can over-turn a system-wide bunker mentality?

She needs one person in the right place (Waxman) doing the right thing....but I fear that those types of people aren't put in positions of power in the first place.
