  1. Yeah, funny how it happens on Fri night. This is an issue Biden should zero in on. The corruption of the Trump Clown Show compared to the lack of scandals in the Obama era. The same IG machine was in place, hired and installed long ago. No charges in eight years. 

  2. The moral wing of the Republican party is down to one person, and I bet Trump wishes he could fire him too.  Romney went on record calling the IG firings as a "threat to accountable democracy".  

    I often wonder if other Republicans are even in favor of accountability or democracy.  They have demonstrated, in general, a high tolerance for corruption and a malevolent dictatorship while they hypocritically wrap themselves in the Flag. What a spineless batch the rest of them have sunk to.
