(by Kimberly Strassel)

Opening words:

U.S. Attorney Robert Khuzami took a few moments in his Tuesday statement about Michael Cohen's plea deal to sing neutrality's praise: "His day of reckoning serves as a reminder that we are a nation of laws, with one set of rules that applies equally to everyone."

Noble words, and they used to mean something. But a disparity of justice is at the heart of our current crisis of faith in institutions. Americans aren't outraged that the Federal Bureau of Investigation felt obliged to investigate allegations leveled at campaigns, or that a special counsel is looking at Russian electoral interference. They are instead furious that Lady Justice seems to have it in for only one side.

The country has watched the FBI treat one presidential campaign with kid gloves, the other with informants, warrants and eavesdropping. They've seen the Justice Department resist all efforts at accountability, even as it fails to hold its own accountable. And don't get them started on the one-sided media.

In days past, when someone in

In days past, when someone in government paid $50k as hush money... it could be assumed that it was campaign funds, since few were rich enough to pay it themselves.

Now, most are millionaires... and paying that is easier. Some still found another way using a congressional fund...

How do they figure Trump used campaign money? Where is the need? He has that much in his back pocket as petty cash!

The claim is ridiculous...

Michael Cohen is back in the

Michael Cohen is back in the news. It’s bigly entertaining to see Fat Nixon squirm, him knowing that indictments are coming for Xmas.

It has been said that, given

It has been said that, given the size, complexity, inanity and stupidity of America's vast collection of good, bad and silly laws, every living American can be found guilty of some crime.
