      I think Democrats are too scared to push the issue of investigations because they're worried that doing so would cause their party's numbers or the President's numbers approval numbers down.  The first concern of Congress should be doing what's right in the name of the law, not doing what they think is best based on their scope of the political winds.

        is the problem.  That's the problem.  

        Although to have the American people discover just how complicit they are/were would certainly make their approval numbers go down.
