    This is one reason I have zero sympathy even if there was abuse of the FISA court to go after Trump.The mere fact that Republicans are perfectly fine with those powers being used to go after us has disqualified them from sympathy. And the fact that both parties willingly made it easier to abuse the system while the Russia thing was going on would be laughable if it werenít so sad.

    Iíve said it before on here.

    If people in power think itís cool to abuse their power when we are the victims but get all twisted when itís used against them, then, plainly, fuck them.

    Of course the answer is to not abuse it against anybody, but come on. January, 2018, Trump signed the bipartisan, FISA, section 702 extension which actually loosened restrictions.

    If Trump had taken a principled stance and demanded reforms to the process based upon what he and some others believe happened to him, Iíd be right behind him.

    But no, he complains out of one side of his mouth about him, then out of the other side decided to continue the abuses against everyone else and, oh, make it even easier to do.

    Fuck that noise. Itís bullshit.

    Take a little time and consider that.

    Pelosi considers the matter too serious to be left to the voters. You can smear as much lipstick on Pelosi and her statement as you wish but the underlying contempt of the American voter, the electoral process, and the Constitution are still on display for all to see. For instance, this from Laurence Tribe who has not found a Democrat heís unwilling to fluff:

    It is absolute bullshit to be upset that FISA snooping was used against you while at the same time signing into law an extension that makes it easier to spy on people without a warrant.

    There was even an amendment to stop abuses by the FBI and NSAís abuse of the system. Rejected by both parties.

    Trump threatened to veto any version that curtailed abuse.

    Iím astonished you canít see its bullshit for Trump to be upset at how the system may have been used against him, but while it is all going on threaten to veto due to an amendment to stop that stuff and instead makes it easier to abuse the system and spy on regular folk.

    I’m astonished too. I’m astonished you still don’t get where we have been coming from regardless of how many times we explain it.

    That’s ok. Agree to disagree.

    So you hate that it happened to Trump. But it doesnít bother you in the slightest that he refused to curb those abuses and made it easier to abuse it?

    Yeah, he should have vetoed it.

    There's a lot of things he should be doing. Here's the problem - he can't unilaterally piss off the entire Republican Party or else his ass is out of office.

    You're anger is misdirected - it should be aimed at the Republicans that backed this bipartisan bullshit.

    Finally whether you like him or not you should be up in arms about this shit being used as a political weapon against his campaign. That's a dangerous precedent to set and you can be angry about Trump signing this crap and still recognize it should never be used as a political weapon to try to sabotage a candidate.

    Trump made the call.

    He didn't think it through beforehand.

    It wasn't perfect.

    He's going to be impeached in the House, then they are going to put Joe Biden on trial in the Senate.

    There's your summary.
