Rick Santorum and GOP Logic

Last night, Rick Santorum was on CNN, you know- the fake news network that everyone keeps running to for interviews.

Anyway, Santorum made the argument that we have all heard from Republicans over and over again concerning indictments and arrests close to the mid-terms elections.

For one, I’ll start with the obvious one- were Republicans complaining when it was announced by Former FBI Director James Comey that the investigation into Hillary Clinton was being reopened? No, of course not.

But, just the mere words of “reopening” sounded like they had something and that very announcement resulted in Clinton losing the election.

But, there is a difference between Clinton and every other pending example.

This week’s news leaves no doubt what is a dark cloud, maybe a hurricane that blew through the White House, starting with the guilty plea of Michael Cohen who implicated President Trump in campaign finance violations.

 

Within minutes, the jury returned guilty verdicts on eight counts against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

A few weeks ago, it was Republican Representative Chris Collins from New York that was indicted, along with members of his family for insider trading, and just yesterday, Republican Representative from California, Duncan Hunter and his wife were indicted on financial fraud as well.

What Clinton fails to have in common with the above is simple- it was an investigation. With Republicans, we have one guilty plea, one convicted by a jury and two more indicted.

Santorum’s argument is twofold- one, he dances around the accusation that this is politically motivated. Mind you, there are plenty of Republican prosecutors and judges, so this makes no sense but, it is the new rallying cry of Republicans.

Have you noticed before President Trump, when someone got indicted and convicted, they were just a criminal? Now, they are victims of the scary deep state Kabbalah that rules a secret society.

Santorum’s other argument is that indictments so close to elections will affect the elections. My question, what’s the other option?

Indict someone after, get them convicted, and then start the election process all over again at tax payer expense? Not to mention that someone that was convicted, should have everything they did before subject to scrutiny and being reversed. But, it gets better.

If you accept Santorum’s argument, aren’t you affecting the outcome of a campaign by doing nothing? If I see someone break in your home and do nothing, aren’t I affecting the outcome of the burglary? It’s the same horse by a different name, just not to the benefit of the Republicans.

Of course, it’s just modern-day politics, especially with statements that this is politically motivated, you know, like this is a third-world banana republic. Yet, President Trump supporters keep falling for it hook, line, and sinker.

While President Trump is more in your face, Santorum is more subtle, but read between the lines, he’s yelling witch hunt, too, so is the rest of the GOP.
