DC is in partisanship chaos once again, but this time it’s our very justice system at the heart of it.
There is widely publicized internal fighting at the FBI and Department of Justice over whether and how far to investigate, let alone ever prosecute, emails and foundation issues from a presidential candidate.
As the FBI can only investigate, they have no jurisdiction over whether prosecutors are willing to then take the case forward.
Downtown today, there were signs that said:
This was referencing the new soundtrack of “Good News” by Ocean Park Standoff, but it could easily summarize the standoff between the FBI and Justice Department and the political parties lining up behind them.
So there is certainly the need for some good news, as a dour mood settles over the capital and the people around the nation watching this play out so awfully, where politics have gotten in between us and our candidates and doing what’s right.
From the song:
“I need some good news baby ’cause the world’s gone crazy.”
When even our law enforcement authorities can no longer function without impediment, and when there is no core impunity from political infringement and recriminations, we know even our most basic system of justice has gone awry with political dysfunction.
Yes, it’s crazy and it’s definitely not good news for the progress and righteousness of this great nation. 😉
