Some days we just don’t know where to begin.  This is one of those days.  The President of the United States openly called for an investigation of his former political opponent, Hillary Clinton.  Let that sink in for a moment.  If the grotesqueness of that doesn’t bother you, then we need to explain the rules.  The Department of Justice is a part of the executive branch, but it has long been independent of public influence from the White House.  Outside pressure from the boss is no way to conduct the legal affairs of the United States.  Pressure from the bully in chief is not exactly equal justice.  Here’s a great opinion piece from The Washington Post.
