Thank you for alerting us to this potential for further illegal politicking against Hillary Clinton. It seems that these neo-cons never sleep. I am exhausted just trying to watch my own back, nevermind that of the US Constitution.

Arrrggghhh.

The Bush history all the way badk to Grampa Bush, has had one connection or another with the "dark side" and it would not surprise me in the least if some attempt to dig it up and throw it out on them, did not happen - and my gut feeling tells me they are also aware of it and they have learned how to play rough with the boys in the white house and i think they will be ready...It blows my mind what this family has gotten away with and Georg Jr is a disgrace to all that is holy in a Christians life...!!!
