  •  That means looking backwards, or something. nt (7+ / 0-)

    I want to see Snowden get a fair trial, an impartial jury, and the same sentence James Clapper gets for lying to Congress.

    •  There's a bipartisan agreement.... (0+ / 0-)

      ....to not look into serious government wrongdoing. Minor scandals, sure. Nontroveries, as well, happens all the time. But when the government says they're "not interested in looking backwards" that means it IS something serious. These people are not fools. They know damn well that if they create a precedent for investigating the true misdeeds of their predecessors, they'll be the next group of people who get investigated. So nothing happens.
