Roger Stone walked yesterday, after Donald Trump commuted his sentence, setting a precedent that obstruction of justice, witness tampering and lying to Congress are no big deals, if you’ve got the right connections in the White House. No, getting convicted of seven felonies is the same as a parking ticket, if you’re cronies with the right crooked elected official. We might have known that before, but we never saw it so blatantly demonstrated as we did Friday night.

Trump vowed to drain the swamp, but he didn’t say he intended to do it by pardoning it. Remember Trump’s infamous post-impeachment clemency spree when he pardoned a slew of white-collar criminals convicted of corruption, gambling fraud and racketeering? My favorite among those was former Illinois governor, and Celebrity Apprentice guest Rod Blogojevich, who tried to sell Barack Obama’s senate seat.

The message that Donald Trump sent last night was crystal clear. Corruption and abuse of power is nooo problemo — if and when you’re connected. If you’re a working class black man, you can be executed in the street on suspicion of passing a counterfeit $20 bill, but if you’re an old rich white guy, with the right friends, you can be convicted of multiple felonies, threaten a judge, and still walk.

In all events, one lone Republican actually came out in opposition to this most recent demolition derby of the rule of law and that was Mitt Romney.

And Jim Jordan joined Lindsey Graham in ginning up the conspiracy theories.

Not to belittle Romney’s tweet, at least it is better than the crickets we hear from the rest of his party, but maybe he better get more proactive with his colleagues since the constitution is in flames, Putin is paying the Taliban to kill American soldiers, and the number of coronavirus cases is skyrocketing.

But here is the tweet you really need to see. Curiously, Lindsey Graham has not deleted it.

Before Lindsey Graham became a traitor to America, he was a prophet.

All the comments I’ve seen are “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

Several things we know about jimmie, he knew athletes were being sexually assaulted at Ohio st, & did Nothing. Wait, no, actually he lied, despite some of the many victims coming out to testify They told him directly. Guess he’s more like the shop owner in Pulp Fiction, who kidnapped Bruce & Vin, then called the rapist in so he could watch. I believe someone mentioned something about “a generation of vipers” a couple thousand years ago. All I hear out of mouth is hissssssss.

Which is why I always encourage everyone to refer to him as ‘Gym’ Jordan, so that he will always be remembered for his sole memorable life achievement.

Lindsay Graham is a toady. A sidekick. Nothing more. ALWAYS has been. That 2016 tweet? While it ain’t much I’d bet all I have he didn’t think up that statement, but rather got it from his then master John McCain and got permission to run with it. He got all his “bravery” from McCain and was probably terrified when McCain got sick because he knew he’d be without his “shield” so it’s no surprise he’d promised and do whatever it took to get on Trump’s good side. New on my list of weird fantasies is CINDY McCain publicly stepping up… Read more »
