    More than in Denial.

    More than Dangerous.

    The Criminal Law definition of Willfull Blindness:

    "Deliberate avoidance of knowledge of a crime, especially by failing to make a reasonable inquiry into suspected wrongdoing despite being aware that it is highly probable.

    A person acts with willfull blindness, for example, by deliberately refusing to look inside an unmarked package after being paid by a known drug dealer to deliver it.  Willfull blindness creates an inference of knowledge of the crime in question."
    (Black's Law Dictionary, 7th Edition)

    Sound familar?  Just substitute emails, known child predator and refusing to investigate serious allegations of misconduct and you have the Foley case.

    The crux is that covering up the (inferred) knowledge of a crime is a crime and the Republican leadership in Congress are criminals.

    "Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is." -Governor George W Bush (R-TX)
