Imagine a Democrat president that used the Office of the President to ask a foreign leader to investigate a political adversary that was a Republican that may be running against the Democrat president in the next election. The Republicans would be up in arms yet few possess the intellectual honesty to admit that. In the end the Senate will judge the President as innocent which will set a precedence making it OK for future Presidents to have those who threaten their political futures investigated. This is a step towards becoming a banana republic and it is tough for me to accept that because Republicans are slaves to their tribal nature that they are going to place party over country. Yet that is exactly what they are going to do. And yes, if roles were reversed the Democrats would act exactly as the Republicans currently are as they are also slaves to their own tribal nature. Presidents should not be allowed to investigate their political opponents. It is unethical. Investigations should be done through the DOJ with no involvement of the Executive Branch. It pains me that I have to point out what should be obvious to all.
