Are there no responsible Republicans left?
On the one hand, we have Richard Clarke, a well-regarded, credible, 30-year government veteran basically charging the current White House with dereliction of duty and basic incompetence in defending the American people. His account is corroborated not only by events and witnesses, but by the White House's own documents and statements. The White House responds, not by refuting the charges, but with a character assassination attempt amounting to the worst abuse of power since Nixon.
What's more, the White House has had to retract several of its criticisms of Clarke as they've been proven untrue. Numerous other criticisms are inconsistent and self-contradictory.
And what do we have from the Senate Majority Leader? Do we have calls for investigations? Cries for impeachment proceedings? Attempts to safeguard the American people?
Not at all.
