  • Robert Hur vs Letitia James

    So, many liberals complain that Robert Hur is a Republican operative/partisan/MAGA because he said Biden had poor memory. This crime seems to be beyond the pale, and how DARE he let his partisanship influence his official actions.

    Meanwhile, Letitia James, campaigned on going after Trump in her election, she called him an illegitimate president, and since the latest verdict repeatedly taunts him with interest via twitter. She also targeted him for actual legal action, an act with far more concrete consequences than anything in Hur's reports. From liberals, her obvious and performative partisanship isn't mentioned, her taunts are celebrated, etc. Instead, it seems that her partisanship is seen as a good thing.

    Anyone have any explanation for this obvious double standard?

    His parents should have called him Benjamin. Then he would have been Ben Hur!

      Hur made the case that old Joe had willfully retained and shared classified information, so if he declined to recommend prosecution for these crimes he would certainly have to provide the reason. Don't understand what the problem was.

      I guess he was supposed to have just declared that "no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case."

        Nobody whatsoever would be the least bit surprised if old Joe confuses the two.

            If liberals didn't have double standards, they wouldn't have any standards at all.

              Trump has a long history of baseless personal attacks against judges, prosecutors, courtroom staff, and even election workers. If it were anyone else I wouldn't say this, but for him, meh. Sure, she's wrong to go after him like that, but it's just deserts.

                It's a genie. And the liberals have let it out the bottle.

                    One can always rationalize two wrongs making a right, eh professor?

                      I'm not saying it's right. I'm saying he's got no room for complaint.

                        Legally, he absolutely does. This is a political vendetta using the courts as a weapon.

                          I'll wager that Biden can still recognise his former wife!

                              I understand Trump used the C word to her lawyer. Such a chivalrous soul!
