One of the troubling things that we’ve seen over the past five years has been the uneven application of the law.
The whole foundation of our country is based upon the rule of law. But we seem to see more cases now where, if you have the magical “D” after your name, there is little consequence for your actions. But if they don’t like you politically, watch out.
The supreme example of that is Donald Trump. We’ve seen for the past five years numerous investigations in search of a crime. That isn’t supposed to be the way this works.
