“Sen. Patrick Leahy says he regrets calling for Sen. Al Franken to resign instead of waiting for an ethics investigation.”His reason is a sudden conversion to the rule of law.
‘The Burlington Free Press reports the Vermont Democrat released a statement Monday, saying he has "stood for due process" throughout his career, and that he regrets "not doing that this time." He says the Ethics Committee "should have been allowed to investigate and make its recommendation."’I wonder if his conversion extends to Roy Moore.
I wonder how many other Democrats will suddenly become converts to due process. What they forgot is that “due process” can become the refuge of the scoundrel as much as the innocent. For the criminals in congress you refer it to a committee. Keep in mind that when you want nothing to get done you refer it to committee. Every chairman of the board knows that.
