    Or what? Is that supposed to be a threat? Seems to me that if a Republican is warning you not to investigate something then it definitely needs investigating.

      I think he’s implying that exposing the corruption will bring to light corrupt Democrats as well.

      Which is such a fucking typical conservative concept, as though the party should defend the corruption within by ignoring corruption everywhere. Jokes on you, motherfucker, because we want to expose and eliminate corruption among Democrats and Republicans.

        This. Democrats are not in a cult. Punish everyone who is doing crimes.

          Democrats are not on a cult.

          “Vote Blue No Matter Who” *is textbook cultish behavior and has lead to some truly awful candidacies.

          The post-Obama turn from casual social liberalism to BlueAnon party jingoism has been absolutely miserable for intra-party Democratic politics. The influx of Bill Kristol / Michael Bloomberg / Lincoln Project anti-Trump Republicans is a poison pill that’s going to do the same damage to the Dems that it did to the GOP under Bush.

          I’m already seeing all the toxicity and nastiness in local Dem organizing meetings that I remember my parents complaining about as liberal Republicans during the 2000-era turn.

            There’s a big difference between “always vote for the Democrat” and “always vote for Trump”.

            The only reason I voted blue last time around was because my third-party vote wasn’t anti-Trump enough in 2016. And I will continue voting blue until Republicans understand what Americans truly want from their politicians, and act accordingly. I will probably be voting blue for the rest of my life, but will be pleasantly surprised if there comes a time when I don’t have to.

              There’s a big difference between “always vote for the Democrat” and “always vote for Trump”.

              A big chunk of the Trump electorate has been increasingly radicalized Republicans. Folks who genuinely believe Democrats are Satanic. The Trump movement works by tapping into this cohort and feeding on their intense anxiety.

              Democrats are getting a similar treatment, particularly as old GOP staffers change parties.

              I will continue voting blue until Republicans understand what Americans truly want from their politicians

              Doggedly putting up candidates like Kristen Sinema, Eric Adams, and Dianne Feinstein to high office won’t compel Republicans to change.

              One routinely sides with her conservative friends and calls it bipartisan, another feeds off blue lives matter jingoism and fuels the hysteria, and the third is too senile to present any kind of strategic opposition even presuming her politics don’t suck.

              There’s no future for progressive politics in a party that can win as Republican Lite.

        And the republicans will find something minor and insignificant about a democrat and make a massive deal about it as though they are equivalent issues.

        Like Biden’s classified document issue compared to Trumps. Then they say, “See? Both sides are basically the same”.

        Tbf, some Democrats don’t want it exposed, nor will resign when they are exposed. Some will run to their yacht to hide from angry constituents and not face intraparty opposition.

      “You won’t like me if I get… uncivil” is the most Senate threat in the book.

      Nevermind that we’ve got sitting Senators who have body-slammed journalists in recent memory.
