Democrat Hypocrisy On Executive Privilege Recalls Different “Gunwalker” Reaction

David Codrea: What’s going on is obvious. After spending almost two years and millions of dollars, the once much-touted Mueller investigation came up empty, with no evidence of Russian collusion, the ostensible reason for the investigation in the first place, and no criminal charges for the president on obstruction of justice.

Our expectation was that there’d be a few thousand or so, and we’d spend ...
