The GOP has shown things like Russian interference in our election, child molestation and sexual assault don’t matter to them so long as their wealthy donors get billions in tax cuts and they can’t cut any remaining benefits to the poor and sick. Only one answer - 2018.

It’s so rich for those GOP members to question Mueller’s integrity . None of them has any - they are Trump’s puppet who is himself a Putin’s puppet.

Yet expecting Muller to be fair is too much. Funny how WaPo finds what Muller does is right, funny or just sad maybe. They put liberalism over country and say see what good people we are.

The RNC has given money to a credibly accused child molester. I'm not surprised by anything they do anymore and don't understand how any decent person can identify themselves as a Republican any more.

Meanwhile, back in the real world, Democratic politicians are showing open contempt for the rule of law in "Sanctuary Cities", the Left is howling for the suppression of freedom of speech, and we routinely read speculation on how to abuse legal process to get rid of a properly elected President. But hey, if your chief worry is that it's wrong to make sure that a criminal investigation is carried out fairly and impartially, it's still a free country.

The republicans have sold the country to the best bidder just for power and money 💰. They are Traitors and fake Christians who detest the truth with vengeance. They now love pedophiles.

I think the gang rape of Al Franken by his own party, in utter disregard of the Constitution and Senate rules is the most disturbing thing I've seen out of Washington in years.

So many from the far right Evangelicals claim to be followers of Christ. Today, I direct them back to the Holy Scriptures they claim to follow. One point that is clear throughout the Old and New Testaments is that "God Hates a Lying Tongue". I suggest you go back and actually read those Scriptures. God cannot contradict the character he has revealed in Scripture. A person can know when the devil is present when you see lies. I say Trump is a pathological liar. Since taking office he has told over 1600 documented lies. I say Trump is Hitler Resurrected. A man who lied repeatedly and brought his nation to its knees. Trump is Satan Incarnate. This man was not sent by God, but, allowed to exist because of the free will God honors. That does not mean God is behind this man. He allows us to suffer the consequences of our decisions. We are headed to a deep dark chasm with this immoral and corrupt President and Republican Party.

Opinion | Why is the media mostly ignoring the Women’s March?

Perspective | Don’t call Trump a totalitarian. He’s bad enough without exaggerating.

"There’s no need to invoke the specter of Stalin or Hitler. Here in the United States, we know where democratic backsliding can lead, because, in a sense, we’ve already been there," Daniel Nexon writes.
