McCarthy outlines what Cohen's claim means, and doesn't mean, for Trump:

Here's a good article on some of the inequities surrounding the Mueller investigation, in particular the difference between the soft peddling of the Clinton investigation compared to the scorched earth tactics used in the Trump-Russia one:

https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/robert-mueller-investigation-perception-inequality/

The strategy taken on the latter investigation is the normal FBI/DOJ one, but it just makes it clear how much the fix was in, in the Clinton investigation. We now know that Comey had already decided not to recommend prosecution of Clinton, despite the clear evidence, before he even interviewed her, partly because he knew the Obama DOJ wouldn't indict her and partly because he didn't want the FBI to get involved in an election campaign. The latter goal might be seen as worthy, until we realise it meant here not applying the law equally. This explains such gross law enforcement bungling as letting Clinton be represented at the interview by likely co-accused.

David, I sincerely hope this was posted before one of Modi's toadies called for the banning of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Of course, that would just be furthering the anti-Christian, Hindu nationalist policies of his BJP.

The what? Oh, confession. While I personally think it is an abominable practice, especially when enforced on helpless children, and it certainly has been exploited many, many times as an avenue to sexual abuse, I agree with the Times of India. The proposed ban is silly, unworkable and also a grave infringement of civil liberties. Shouldn't think it is going to get anywhere or is anything to worry about, unlike say President Trump or the Marxist anti-Semite currently heading the Labour Party, the nominal topics of this thread.

Just to be clear, the above was not intended to cause offence, it is just my private opinion which I am more than prepared to defend in any discussion that might ensue. It also was not intended to reprove off-topic digression, which I am frequently guilty of myself and rarely object to. Any offence caused to Corbynites on the other hand was intentional, though alas is unlikely to happen since why would any of them be reading this? Corbyn incidentally is increasingly being publicly named as an anti-Semite, indeed a senior Labour MP, Margaret Hodge, is currently undergoing disciplinary proceedings for calling Corbyn an 'anti-Semitic racist' in a private conversation in the Commons chamber which rapidly deteriorated into a full-volume public row.

And today Jewish organisations have made the same public accusation that Corbyn is personally an anti-Semite. This was following the issue of another of his insincere, inadequate apologies, the release of which was carefully timed for Friday afternoon, thus preventing observant Jews from making any response until Saturday evening at the earliest. They have, however, been making up for lost time. And until we see disciplinary proceedings against Labour figures, like many of those around Corbyn for example, for committing anti-Semitic acts, as opposed to those who object to anti-Semitic acts, the accusation against the Dear Leader himself will stand.
