#3 Ill go all Herb for a moment. Where might we be today if Boosh had just cleaned house at CIA (and DoS too, but that's crazy talk, I know) the day after his inauguration? No way it would have changed 9/11 but everything after that, especially Iraq would probably have been (not saying turned out different, too many cooks and all that) quite different. The permanent parade of professional poltroons inside the Beltway is 99.99997% of the problem.

#4 As DeGaulle said (paraphrased for the PC era): "The graveyards are full of indispensable people."

Yes, very difficult to fire the people who hired you.

#6 Yeah, B. In retrospect the 2000 election looks interesting...

#7 President Trump claimed that the FBI and CIA’s spying on his campaign and early presidency was treason. Attorney General William Barr said that, legally, it wasn’t. Barr is correct.

It seems premature to say treason is off the table when the facts are not all in. Is conspiring with an ally rather than an enemy to nullify an election and duly-elected POTUS treasonous? Adam Yahiye Gadahn was charged with treason for conspiring with an enemy. IMO the ramifications of what was done in Spygate are more serious and far-reaching than the treasonous Gadahn's crimes...but then I'm not a lawyer.

#8 The Constitution carefully defines what treason is. Mostly because Americans were tired of the King calling anything he didn't like "treason".

So, no, what the deep state/Democrats did was not treason.

#9 As I recall, P2K posted a sedition definition not long ago that says it all.

#10 It certainly is sedition.

#12 Although I hope Barr gets to the bottom of this mess that was created, I vacillate between optimism and pessimism. Daylight and honesty, at some point, would be helpful to Americans in deciding for whom they should vote and who should govern. So far, we have seen little that has been done to drain the swamp and clean up the left-over corruption.

Presently, there is too much disinformation, fake news and B.S. from swamp denizens.

And Peter's Buttgag is Maltese too.

Maybe the Knights of Malta are the ones in charge

I'd prefer the Knights of Pythias. More drinking.

#15 Trump should order Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF CONGRESS, yes even republicans. Just so it's fair. It's the only way to be sure.

#16 Always thought there was a niche for a krewe of total milquetoasts...

"Before we vamoose, let us promise:
Dum vivimus, vatos, vivamus.
Go loco! Hot mamas
And vocative commas
Await, Caballeros de Domus!"
