Letter: Where is the Republican outrage now?

The latest scandal was actually a crime and far worse than the “Hillary email scandal,” yet where is the Republican Party’s outrage?

Let’s go back in time to the “Hillary Clinton Email Scandal” that had every Republican’s/Trumplican’s hair on fire. The Department of Justice’s OIG reviewed the matter (during Trump’s tenure) and released their report on June 14, 2018. They concluded that the FBI's and DOJ's handling of Clinton's investigation was proper, finding no evidence of political bias and lending support for the decision to not prosecute Clinton. In spite of this, the country was pelted ad nauseum with “lock her up!” chants at rallies, etc. Fast forward to the aftermath of the Trump disaster/criminal history that never seems to end, and as a nation we are witnessing alleged criminal acts that have never been committed by a sitting or former president before.

The latest scandal was actually a crime and far worse than the “Hillary email scandal,” yet where is the Republican Party’s outrage? There is no doubt, in my honest opinion (and by so many other respected legal pundits), that Trump has committed several serious crimes involving several serious felony statutes (many people are saying this). Sad, sad days for our country. I wonder if any Trump sycophants/Republican members of Congress ever ask themselves if our Founding Fathers would be proud of Trump, his conduct or his sycophants? Without a spine or conscience, I guess it’s easy for them to pass on those thoughts and look the other way. Lock him up!
