HURT: Meet Preet — Obama’s hatchet man against filmmakers
Question of the Day
Even the Russians seemed to admire the brazenness of Mr. Bharara’s retribution.
Perhaps these are all just coincidences. a Schumer protege often mentioned as a potential Holder successor just always happens to be in the right place at the right time to deliver his powerful position to rain misery on the administration’s enemies or provide them shelter.
Certainly, Mr. D'Souza very well may be guilty. Same with the Russian diplomats. And perhaps the Indian attache really needed to be strip-searched.
But a filmmaker skirting campaign donation limits does not tear at the fabric of this nation of laws. Russians cheating our welfare system is not a constitutional crisis.
A constitutional crisis that tears the fabric of this nation of laws is a federal prosecutor who uses his office to advance political vendettas. Sadly, it is all too believable given Mr. Obama’s utter disregard for the constitution and his administration’s willingness to use any lever of government power to intimidate, harass and persecute political enemies.
