How is the neverTrump resistance able to ignore the growing evidence of FBI/DOJ misconduct? It helps that the media continues framing criticism of the FBI as a Republican campaign to discredit these institutions solely to protect Trump.
Stepping outside the blinding tribalism of American politics allows one to see the utter corruption of both parties. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump exist on the same plane of moral depravity and political opportunism–a statement that probably sounds absurd to partisans.
But to those same partisans it doesn’t seem to matter one bit that HRC reportedly protected a lecherous campaign staffer. The Grammy spot for this two-time presidential loser is something to be cheered.
The resistance has thrown in on one side of a political civil war I want no part in. I do not believe in the ends justifying the means. I am greatly troubled that a bullshit dossier was used by their political opposition to unmask Americans in order to spy on them.
I feel it necessary to point out one can have these opinions while still opposing Trump’s presidency, which I absolutely do. Trump is as much a swamp creature as the Clintons. Those who think otherwise must embrace increasingly fantastical thinking, like the growing belief in “The Storm”, a grand conspiracy that posits some pretty ridiculous things.
Equally ridiculous, though, is the hope that corrupt institutions like the FBI can operate in a non-corrupt manner to oust a President. If that happens, and the neverTrump resistance accepts that the ends justify the means, it won’t just be a political civil war between two parties.
Does the resistance understand this?
