Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Members of the elite don't "go after" each other.  Look how Nixon, Bush, Clinton, and Bush were able to break the law and then walk away from consequences.

Some things need to change. The USA is not the Roman Republic and neither were Nixon, Reagan or the Bushes Caesar. The US Senate is not (yet) the Roman Senate. I understand the fear of setting a precedent that one faction attacks the other faction when they get in power. That game was played with lawsuits in the Roman Senate. We do not want a similar dynamic in the USA. But neither can we let lawbreaking become the norm out of fear of partisan reprisal. It is a dilemma we must grasp by the horns and hope to vault over.
