Ah yes, the trusty ol’ “Well, He/She Started It!!!” argument. It’s an awesome argument - if your freakin’ 9 years old …
Your guys’ heads would be exploding if the Intel community leaked that President Clinton and/or her top security advisor may be compromised by the Russians. You’d be absolutely apoplectic, please don’t say that you wouldn’t. Hell, you still want HRC investigated for her involvement in Vince Foster’s death.
And you would give less than a shit about the source or the legality of the leak as long as it implicated Clinton.
Here’s the thing. I’d be just as concerned if it was President Clinton too.
The issue isn’t political - it isn’t about left vs right, Lib vs Con, Pub vs Dem.
This is about our national security and the integrity of American democracy.
