Life is not binary, it is possible to chase multiple offenses at the same time

Americans suck at complicated thinking. Americans want everything to be black and white, right or wrong, this or not, but it doesn't work that way.  This leads to stupid memes like this one, which presents the idea that it has to be "one or the other, but can't be both."  Wrong. It can be both, and it can be even more complicated than that.  Welcome to the world of grown-ups.

The Primaries got investigated already - it may have been immoral and unethical - but it was legal - that horse sailed, get over it. With the caveat that lessons need to be learned, so it doesn't happen again.

The same goes for GOP suppression of voting - Trump spent all summer bitching the election was "rigged" against him, and then flip-flopped the instant it looked like he'd have an Electoral College win. Voter suppression still needs to be investigated, along with gerrymandering and other bullshit. Again, a lot of this is "legal," but immoral, unethical and total bullshit, by any rational standard.

The Russian connection is illegal and needs to be investigated. Amazing, though, how the New Fuhrer President is doing everything he can to shutdown the investigations - and suppress the due process, and suppress the rule of law.  Even Republican lawmakers want it investigated.

Yes, I found a meme, and I hacked it up. Let me know if the yellow color (the color of piss, but really just a halfway decent contrast) works, or if you have suggestions for a better color choice.
