Within minutes of the mass shootings last weekend, Democrats were blaming President Trump’s rhetoric for the shootings. Saying that their antics were disgusting doesn’t suffice. When Joaquin Castro outed his own constituents, he insisted repeatedly that “No one was targeted or harassed in my post.” I said then that he lied through his teeth. Now, I’ve got verification in the form of this article:

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) workers are facing a rapidly escalating series of threats, including protesters menacing their children and shots being fired at their offices, amid a rising tide of anti-ICE rhetoric from the left fueled by congressional Democrats, media voices and presidential hopefuls.

Other than FNC, nobody else in the media is covering this. Unfortunately, the Democrats’ threats don’t stop there:

Footage published Tuesday by Breitbart News shows protesters in Florida from groups such as Never Again Action and Black Lives Matter Alliance of Broward County threatening workers and former employees of the GEO Group, a private contractor used by ICE.

One protester threatened the family of GEO Group’s former general counsel, John Bulfin. “We know where all your children live throughout the country … John Bulfin you have kids in [bleeped out], you have kids in [bleeped out],” the protester yelled. “We know everything about you and you won’t just be seeing us here.”

Joaquin Castro’s denials notwithstanding, it’s exceptionally clear that these Democrat-affiliated hate organizations won’t hesitate in threatening and intimidating political opponents.


In this video, Joe Scarborough lied when he said that Republicans insisted that the information that Rep. Castro published was secret:

That’s an outright lie. Period. Republicans repeatedly said that the information on the “San Antonio 44” would be used to harass those donors. In fact, Republicans were remarkably consistent in repeating that claim. Now, we’ve got proof that those people have gotten harassed. Additionally, we’ve got verification that Democrat-affiliated anarchist organizations are threatening and intimidating ICE agents and their families.

In the video, Castro tries absolving himself of guilt by saying that “this information was first put up by a local Indivisible group.” Here’s what Indivisible stands for:

Close your eyes for a minute and imagine this: it’s 2021. Trump lost and an inspiring progressive takes office. Democrats held the House and retook the Senate. On day one, the new Congress passes sweeping democracy reforms to roll back decades of Republican attacks on our democracy. We smash voter suppression and expand voter access, end gerrymandering, take on money in politics, admit new states, and take back the courts. In short, we unrig the rules and put democracy back in the hands of the people. Then we turn to a major progressive legislative agenda – immigration reform, climate change, health care, and more.

Let’s admit that this isn’t a centrist agenda. I’m betting that the vast majority of these items wouldn’t poll above 20%. That’s who’s supporting Joaquin Castro. That’s who’s supporting Democrats. Remember that Joaquin Castro is described as a moderate.

From what’s written, I’d argue that he’s a far left nutjob whose brother stated on national TV that he’d decriminalize illegal immigration. That’s the veiled way of saying he’s for open borders. There’s nothing moderate about these positions.

When you couple outright threats and intimidation with policies that deliver outright lawlessness and corruption, that’s something that must be rejected forcefully and immediately.

Apparently, Rep. Joaquin Castro hasn’t learned the first rule of holes. For people like Rep. Castro, the first rule of holes is simple: if you’re in one, stop digging. Immediately! Rep. Castro didn’t do that. Instead, he tried defending his indefensible actions. Rep. Castro was accused of “targeting and harassing Americans” by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Rep. Castro replied via Twitter, saying “No one was targeted or harassed in my post. You know that. All that info is routinely published. You’re trying to distract from the racism that has overtaken the GOP and the fact that President Trump spends donor money on thousands of ads about Hispanics ‘invading’ America.”

Technically, Rep. Castro is right that this information is published. He’s lying through his teeth, however, in saying that it’s “routinely” published. Having taken a trip through FEC reports once or twice before, I can state that it’s a pain in the butt. Adding what businesses these Trump max donors from San Antonio work at isn’t difficult if you have tons of time. However, it’s indisputable that it’s a labor-intensive project.

Further, saying that “no one was targeted or harassed” in Rep. Castro’s tweet is incomplete. It’s far more likely that it’ll be accurate if the tweet said ‘no one was targeted or harassed yet.’ Does Rep. Castro think that we’ve forgotten about this lunatic?

It isn’t likely that we’ll forget this incident anytime soon:

Does Rep. Castro actually think that his doxing of President Trump’s supporters won’t trigger Antifa protests against these businesses or these people’s homes? If Rep. Castro thinks that we’ll buy that BS, then he’s insulting our intelligence. Democrats have tried playing the racist/bullying/intimidation game for years. Democrats don’t have any fresh solutions but they’re well-schooled in intimidation tactics.

America is at a cultural crossroads tonight. We can reject the Resist Movement and return to being the greatest nation on this planet. Either that or we can accept Antifa’s intimidation tactics as America’s new normal. Personally, I won’t accept the Democrats’/Antifa’s intimidation tactics. Period. There’s nothing normal about the Democrats’ intimidation tactics.

What’s interesting is that Democrats are using the same tactics that they’re accusing President Trump is using. If there are thoughtful Democrats left, it’s time to reject these thugs immediately. There’s no place in politics for intimidation tactics.

Normal Americans are getting repulsed by the behavior of politicians like Robert Francis O’Rourke, Sen. Spartacus Booker and Tim Ryan in the wake of this weekend’s mass shootings. That’s in addition to Joaquin Castro essentially threatening President Trump’s San Antonio supporters.

Robert Francis O’Rourke, in his best impersonation of being a real man, called President Trump a “white nationalist.” Sen. Booker said that it was “the president who must be ‘held responsible’,” not the shooter.

Unfortunately, this is what I expect from politicians. There isn’t a solution to be found anywhere. That’s why normal Americans, defined as people who don’t see racism motivating white people’s every action, got out to the polls and elected Donald Trump as president. They were tired of politicians of both parties not solving problems. They elected the man they saw as Disruptor-in-Chief. They elected President Trump. Thank God for that.

The MSM criticized President Trump’s Inauguration Speech, calling it dark. Now, people across this nation think it’s dark but needed. Meanwhile, the leading contender to be the Democrats’ presidential nominee, Joe Biden, plans on directly linking President Trump to the el Paso shooting:

Saying that President Trump has “fanned the flames of white supremacy in this nation,” Democratic presidential primary front-runner Joe Biden on Wednesday will directly link the president to the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas. The charges by former vice president – who will make his case during a speech in Burlington, Iowa – come on the same day as Trump travels to El Paso to visit with law enforcement, first responders and victims of the shooting, which left at least 22 people dead. The president will also stop in Dayton, Ohio, site of another mass shooting this past weekend.

The suspect in the El Paso massacre allegedly wrote a white nationalist manifesto ahead of the shootings. Biden, pointing to the president’s divisive immigration rhetoric at campaign rallies and on Twitter, will ask “how far is it from Trump’s saying this ‘is an invasion’ to the shooter in El Paso declaring ‘his attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas?'”

What a blithering idiot. It’s stunning to hear the former Vice President of the United States insist that this idiot in Texas did what he did because of something President Trump said.

Normal people understand that the El Paso shooter was a disturbed person and, it turns out, a ticking time bomb waiting for detonation. This has nothing to do with President Trump.

UPDATE: Some of President Trump’s San Antonio supporters have started criticizing Rep. Joaquin Castro, (D- TX) for outing them:

One of those Trump donors even revealed he’s also been a supporter of local Democratic lawmakers—including Castro himself. Wayne Harwell, the owner of a local real estate development company whose name appeared on the list Castro shared on Monday night, told Fox News in a phone interview that he donated money to Castro’s congressional campaign. But he suggested that after Castro outed him in a bid to shame Trump supporters, he won’t be supporting Castro anymore.

Rep. Castro probably doesn’t care. He ‘stood up’ to President Trump, which keeps him in good standing with Resist activists, which is all he wants.

Let’s be blunt about this. Rep. Castro isn’t a man of integrity. Period. Rep. Castro knows that Democrat-affiliated organizations like Antifa and other domestic terrorist organizations affiliated with the Democratic Party will likely visit these contributors for the sole reason of intimidating them for the next campaign. What’s most disgusting is that Democrats have employed this tactic since Scott Walker was Wisconsin’s governor. That was the entire purpose behind the illegal John Doe investigations.

I don’t know what’s worse. Vice President Biden is promising to take law-abiding Americans’ legal firearms. Rep. Castro is issuing veiled threats to people who’ve contributed to the campaign of a politician he doesn’t approve of. On second thought, this is easy. They’re both dirtbag losers who don’t give a damn about the Constitution.

Frank Luntz was in the debate hall for both nights of the Democrats’ presidential debates. To be honest, I thought that the supposed frontrunners sounded like idiot bomb-throwers while the lower tier candidates sounded reasonable in some instances. In this situation, reasonable is a relative term. Think John Hickenlooper, John Delaney, Michael Bennet.

I wouldn’t put Joe Biden in that category. At one point, Biden said “I am the only candidate whose plan limits the insurance companies from charging unreasonable prices. We should put some of these insurance executives who oppose my plan in jail for the 9,000,000,000 opioids they sell out there.”

Notice how Biden started by saying that “insurance executives who oppose [his] plan” should get thrown in prison before catching himself and mentioning opioids. Before that, Biden said that his plan “limits the insurance companies from charging unreasonable prices.” Who determines what’s unreasonable? The government? Once the government is the arbiter of what’s too expensive, what effects will that have on insurance companies? Has Biden thought about that? I’m betting he hasn’t.

So we supposedly have a fight for the soul of the Democratic Party. Frank Luntz thinks that that fight is over:

Luntz is right. This fight is over. At the first Democrat debate, every Democrat presidential candidate raised their hands when asked if they’d decriminalize illegally entering the United States. Listen to the ferocious reaction of the audience when attacking CEOs and corporations. Notice how far left Democrats have gone with illegal immigration. Changing it from a criminal charge to a civil fine is like sending out a notice that a small fine will be imposed for illegally entering the United States. That would open the floodgates and then some. People wouldn’t need to game the asylum system. They could just pay a fine, then become a legal resident of the US. Tell me the difference between that and open borders.

The Democratic Party of Bill Clinton is dead. Based on the criticism against President Obama, I could make a strong argument that the Democratic Party of President Obama is in hospice and fading fast. I’m not certain that the Democratic Party as it exists today will exist in 15 years.

After reading Jazz Shaw’s post about Nancy Pelosi’s ‘plan’ on immigration, I find myself 8 shades of pissed off with the obstructionist Speaker. Our Constitution can’t work if both sides don’t work together. Ms. Pelosi (big surprise) isn’t interested in working together with anyone.

What she’s effectively done is started her own private government shutdown. She knows that the money budgeted for DHS is virtually dried up. Further, she knows that the money needed for supplies for detention centers is essentially gone. Now, CBP agents are bringing in supplies from home to take care of the children. The House bill is utterly neglectful of what this country needs:

There’s 934.5 million for processing facilities, food, water, sanitary items, blankets, etc. $866 million would go to “reduce reliance on influx shelters to house children.” Another $200 million is allocated to develop an “integrated, multi-agency processing center pilot program for families.”

That’s only part of it. It gets much worse. Check this BS out:

There’s another serious poison pill in the package as well. One provision would, “require the federal government to prospectively notify illegal immigrants that if they bring an unaccompanied child into the country and sponsor them, their illegal status would in no way be used against them, a source said, and that the child will be delivered to them without any reservation.”

Are you kidding me? So not only are we not fixing the loophole that’s allowing illegal aliens to grab a kid and use them as a passport to get into the country, but we’re going to advertise the loophole to all the migrants and codify it in law?

The next time a Democrat insists that they’re serious about border security, throw that information into their face. This is what people do if they hate America. Right now, there’s tons of proof that Democrats don’t like America much.

It’s time to throw Pelosi out as Speaker. She’s repeatedly proven that she isn’t interested in fixing problems. Further, she’s repeatedly proven that she wants to blow up the America that our Founding Fathers envisioned. Check this out from Pelosi’s statement on the House immigration bill:

The legislation protects families. It does not fund the Administration’s failed mass detention policy, but, instead, funds effective, humane alternatives to detention with a proven track record of success. It places strict limits on influx shelters, protects sponsors from DHS immigration enforcement based on information collected by HHS during the vetting process and creates strong oversight by Congress including to protect unaccompanied children.

In other words, the Democrats’ immigration bill will prevent DHS and HHS from collecting information on illegal immigrants during the vetting and processing processes.

The minute this bill is passed and sent to the Senate, the Senate should gut the poison pill parts of the bill and write the right bill. If Senate Democrats aren’t willing to stand up to Ms. Pelosi, they should be highlighted for defeat the next time they’re up for re-election.

Pelosi is a tyrant. She thinks that she’s the queen when it comes to controversial legislation. If Democrats won’t shut her down, then they’re utterly worthless. All of the spinmeisters’ talk about how many moderates got elected is foolish. Moderates who won’t stand up to a tyrant like Pelosi are moderates in name only. This is what a tyrant looks like:

She’s the personification of a tyrant. Here’s the definition of a tyrant:

  1. a sovereign or other ruler who uses power oppressively or unjustly.
  2. any person in a position of authority who exercises power oppressively or despotically.

She needs to be thrown out. For that matter, House Democrats need to be thrown out of office. Since regaining control of the House, Democrats haven’t done anything to make Americans’ lives better. They’ve protected criminal aliens with ferocity. They’ve insisted on not protecting our borders. Democrats that tell you that they’re pro-border security are liars. Period.

Last week, Judge Michael Toomin ruled that Kim Foxx’s ‘recusal’ in the Jussie Smollett case was “sophistry.” Then he ruled in favor of appointing a special prosecutor to examine Foxx’s office’s work in dismissing Smollett’s charges.

Judge Toomin then compared Foxx’s investigation to a ship at sea without a captain, saying that “Here the ship of State ventured from its protected harbor without the guiding hand of its captain. There was no master on the bridge to guide the ship as it floundered through uncharted waters. And it ultimately lost its bearings.”

It isn’t surprising that this investigation failed to produce justice. Consider the fact that Tina Tchen, who was once chief of staff for former first lady Michelle Obama, spoke to Foxx after Foxx’s faux recusal.

In his ruling, Judge Toomin said this:

“Curiously, public announcements that flowed from the State’s Attorney’s Office offered the rather novel view that the recusal was not actually a recusal,” Toomin wrote. “Rather, in an exercise of creative lawyering, staff opined that Foxx did not formally recuse herself in a legal sense, that the recusal was only in a colloquial sense … However, discerning members of the public have come to realize that the ‘recusal that really wasn’t’ was purely an exercise in sophistry.”

Then Judge Toomin lowered the boom:

A true recusal would have put the case under the control of a prosecutor from another county. But Foxx kept the case in the hands of her deputy the Chicago Way. That, Toomin wrote, created a “fictitious office having no legal existence.”

Since the faux recusal really just created a void in the State’s Attorney’s office, the decision to drop the charges against Smollett didn’t really happen. Double jeopardy didn’t attach because the person making the decision didn’t have the authority to make decisions.

Judge Toomin is one of the heroes in this fiasco. The other hero is retired appellate Judge Sheila O’Brien. Judge O’Brien “figured…that Foxx’s handling of the Smollett case and her office’s decision to drop the charges against him smelled like the gutters in an alley off the Chicago Way.” In an interview with John Kass of the Chicago Tribune, Judge O’Brien told him:

Thanks to Judge Toomin’s ruling, we’ll get the truth,” O’Brien told me over the phone Friday. “We’ll get the whole truth, all of it, everything and it will be under oath.” Are you happy? “Yes,” O’Brien said. “Because now we’ll have testimony under oath.”

It’s apparent that under oath is what Judge O’Brien wanted most. That eliminates political wiggle room. A Chicago lawyer can turn political wiggle room into Swiss cheese in a New York minute.

Once this fiasco legitimately makes it into the courts, political influence shrinks quickly. That’s what’s apparently happening, much to Kim Foxx’s displeasure. She’s counted on her political connections to keep her out of trouble. The judiciary has tighter controls. Spin doesn’t hold up against verifiable proof.

From this point forward, it’s clear that Mark Geragos has his work cut out for him. This isn’t a political fight anymore. It’s a legal fight, something I doubt he thought he was signing on for.

This headline says it all:

Democrats wary of handing Trump a win on infrastructure

I get it that political parties don’t like handing the other side a political victory heading into election season. What’s most disturbing is that Democrats, aka the Resistance, has been operating like this for President Trump’s presidency. Democrats have been hating on President Trump the entire time. When President Trump tried repealing and replacing the ACA, we knew that they’d put up a fight. Still, never offering a substantive alternative to the ACA was disgraceful.

When every Democrat in the House and Senate voted against the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, it was a clear act of defiance. It wasn’t about principles. It wasn’t about doing what they thought was best for the nation. It was about doing everything possible to defeat President Trump. Hatred that runs that deep and cold isn’t patriotic. It’s the worst type of partisanship imaginable.

It’s just my opinion but I can’t imagine the voters voting for a political party that’s most interested in hating rather than accomplishing. Democrats are about hating. If they’re about accomplishing, they’re worthless at accomplishing.

It’s indisputable that Democrats, especially from the AOC/Ilhan Omar/Rashid Tlaib wing of the Democrat Party, will do anything to thwart President Trump. Further, that trio of freshmen are just part of that wing of the Democrat Party. It isn’t complete if you don’t add Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Jerry Nadler and other back-bench bomb-throwers to that list.

Finally, can you picture either political party doing this 15 years ago? I can’t. That didn’t exist 15-20 years ago.

Nobody does it better than Salena Zito. This week, the ‘it’ that I’m referring to is exposing who the Loony Left is. As with all of her reporting, Ms. Zito relied on a suitable foil. (My word, not Ms. Zito’s.) This week’s villain is Pennsylvania Democrat Brian Sims.

Sims is the jackass that harassed women in front of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Philadelphia. He’s also a Pennsylvania Democrat representing part of Philadelphia.

This is how big of a jerk Sims is:

That’s behavior far beyond what a jerk does. That’s what I’d expect from a militant activist. Frankly, I’d throw him in a woodchipper if it was legal. Here’s what Ms. Zito wrote:

When Brian Sims first ran for state representative in 2012, he ran as a new pro-business voice. He was going to be a bridge-builder, brimming with commonsense ideas on pocketbook issues. Sims never met that promise.

That’s understatement. It gets worse:

Last week, Sims decided to film his own harassment of a woman outside an abortion clinic here in Philadelphia, calling her an “old white lady” and her beliefs “grotesque” to her face and to the camera. The clear plan was to incite his audience against this peaceful protester, whom he saw as clearly bigoted and evil.

The whole act opened the window for Twitter observers into a dark, dark place in American culture, a gaping divide none of us quite know how to navigate. And while Sims’ harassment was, on the one hand, shocking, it was expected. A politician abusing his power thusly to crush religious conservatives is exactly what so many of us have been bracing for.

This was no outburst in the heat of a debate. He wasn’t reacting to a stressful situation. It also wasn’t a talk show appearance that went sour, nor was it a barroom brawl. He wasn’t caught off guard at his home or his office or a campaign event.

To put it succinctly, Sims ripped his own ‘moderate’ mask off. He pretended to be a moderate while he was actually a bitter radical. This should be a lesson for naïve Republicans.

It’d be nice to think that we can get along with these types of Democrats. That isn’t a luxury we can afford at this time. Republicans should realize that the left has gotten radicalized. (Think Antifa, Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street.) Then think Bernie Sanders and AOC.

This was an emboldened, out-of-touch, arrogant elected official who woke up one day last week and made a conscious decision to go to Planned Parenthood for the express purpose of fighting and badgering.

And he chose a woman, standing by herself. And he didn’t start a dialogue. He didn’t introduce himself. He badgered her. Repeatedly. Relentlessly. Angrily. He badgered an enemy he himself described as an old lady.

If ever there was a time to just utterly defeat Democrats, it’s right now. These radicals aren’t just wrong on the issues, they’re evil. Further, let’s realize that there aren’t that many moderate Democrats. I frequently tell my friends that the definition of the moderate Democrat is a Democrat running for office in a swing district. The moderation disappears an hour after they win election.

UPDATE: Watch the entire video. Sims claims that he’s seen the “insults, the attacks, the slurs and the racism that those protesters aim at mostly young girls.” Why didn’t he videotape that? Why didn’t he post that to Youtube? I’m betting that he didn’t because it doesn’t exist.

For the first time in US history, a committee ordered the Attorney General of the United States to break the law. In voting to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt of Congress, House Democrats cited AG Barr’s unwillingness to hand over to them a totally unredacted copy of the Mueller report.

One of the reasons why AG Barr didn’t turn that type of report over to the Democrats is because grand jury testimony is confidential and can’t be turned over without a court order. Even then, there are only 5 exceptions for releasing grand jury testimony. Congressional oversight isn’t one of those exceptions.

Think about that. Democrats, led by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, have ordered the Attorney General to break the law. Talk about theater of the absurd! That’s simply stunning. Jim Jordan nails it with this statement during today’s hearing:

Today on Outnumbered OT, Rep. Tom McClintock, (R-Calif.) and a member of the House Judiciary Committee, stated something stunning. He said that only 6 lines were redacted from the 182-page report on obstruction of justice. Think about that! Just 6 lines out of almost 200 pages were redacted. This isn’t about oversight. It’s about Democrats doing whatever they can to destroy AG Barr’s reputation.

Rep. Doug Collins, the Ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, nailed it in this tweet:


This tweet from Rep. Collins is pretty revealing, too:


Today’s ‘hearing’ was mostly about Democrats showboating for the 6:00 news. This wasn’t about seeking justice.

Democrat pundits have repeatedly said that they’re capable of walking and chewing gum at the same time. I have 2 thoughts on that. It’s perhaps possible that they’re capable of walking and chewing gum simultaneously. The question is whether they’re interested in walking and chewing gum simultaneously. Next, I say perhaps because we haven’t seen proof that they can walk and chew gum simultaneously.

Finally, today’s clown show is proof that the Democrats’ priorities are totally screwed up. While Democrats were conducting this clown show, they weren’t addressing illegal immigration, which, the last I looked, is a full-blown crisis. I only know what I can prove. I can’t prove that Democrats give a damn about homeland security. I certainly can’t prove that they’ve investigated and legislated simultaneously.

It’s time to throw these idiots out in large numbers. Hate-America-first Democrats like Jerry Nadler, Ted Lieu and David Cicilline need to stripped of their authorities because they’ve created this clown show.

Let’s be clear about something. A number of Democrat committee chairs are constitutional illiterates. Either that or they’re exceptionally corrupt or both. It’s something I’ve spent a big chunk of time thinking about. Here’s what finished things off for me.

When House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings issued subpoenas for President Trump’s private financial records when he was a private citizen, President Trump’s attorneys filed a lawsuit to prevent the production of those records.

The legal complaint from Trump’s legal team reads “Chairman Cummings has ignored the constitutional limits on Congress’ power to investigate. Article I of the Constitution does not contain an ‘Investigations Clause’ or an ‘Oversight Clause.’ It gives Congress the power to enact certain legislation. Accordingly, investigations are legitimate only insofar as they further some legitimate legislative purpose.”

That’s true as far as it goes but I’d add that they didn’t mention a separation of powers conflict, too. Congress isn’t tasked with investigating private citizens before they were part of the government. That’s the jurisdiction of the executive branch. Specifically, the Department of Justice has the statutory authority to investigate private citizens. The investigations of private citizens is the responsibility of the FBI or the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The only people vested with the responsibility of convening grand juries are the DOJ attorneys, U.S. attorneys or a special counsel.

This won’t be a terribly difficult case to decide. The legislative branch has the constitutional authority to give advice and consent, pass legislation, provide legislative oversight and to ratify treaties.

House Democrats don’t have the authority to investigate the private activities of private citizens. That’s the job of the executive branch. Period. Mark Levin discussed another possible explanation with former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli on Sunday night’s Life, Liberty & Levin:

I don’t know if that’s what these Democrats are trying to do but I won’t rule it out. It’s pretty frightening when the People’s House is weaponized to torment private citizens. Though that precedent hasn’t been sent, Speaker Pelosi did say that subpoenas might be a way to negotiate with President Trump:

Apparently, Pelosi and other Democrats don’t think playing fair is required. That’s why they need to voted out of office in 2020. The bigger the landslide in the House and Senate, the better. It’s clear that Democrats don’t see limits on their investigative powers:

I suspect that they’ll be stopped cold by the Supreme Court. I can’t wait to hear about that ruling. What’s chilling is hearing E.J. Dionne say that going after a private citizen’s private financial records “is the right thing to do.”
