GOP lawmakers continue to defend Trump after prosecutors assert his involvement in criminal acts

After a sitting United States president was accused in filings on Friday of being involved in a criminal conspiracy, one might imagine that the next round of Sunday shows would be well stocked with Republicans looking to distance themselves from an overt and flagrant act of corruption. Or so we would say, if we had been all locked in an underground cave for two years only to finally peep out this morning. The real world consisted primarily of two of the usual Republican suspects, and their concern over the lawbreaking part was, ahem, muted at best. Noted corruption-fighter Sen. Rand Paul was unimpressed. According to Rand Paul, campaign finance crimes can hardly be counted as crimes at all, and as for pursuing financial deals with the heads of hostile foreign states while winking about your soon-maybe-status as Oval Office resident, why, you'd practically be stupid not to do it. And I think we have to decide in our society if -- there are thousands and thousands of rules. It's incredibly complicated, campaign finance. We have to decide whether or not really criminal penalties are the way we should approach criminal finance. Who among us can keep straight whether it is legal or illegal to, after having paid hush money to a porn actress to keep her quiet about an affair on the eve of your presidential election, elaborately structure reimbursement payments to your lawyer-fixer from your private for-profit company so as to conceal the existence of that payment. It is Too Hard. It makes our wee brains hurt to think about; perhaps it would be better to use this opportunity to retroactively legalize whatever Donald Trump has done and Move On With Our Republican Lives.

Something must be broken deep in our hearts when it comes to police violence

In the last few weeks we’ve had news a sad, tragic series of murders by police.   There was veteran EJ Bradford, who was wrongfully mistaken as a “suspect” and shot three times in the back by officers in an Alabama mall. Emantic Bradford Jr, the 21-year-old African American man who was killed by a police officer on Thanksgiving at a mall in Alabama, was shot three times from behind, according to an independent autopsy released by a civil rights attorney on Monday. His father told the Guardian the report showed his son was murdered. According to the report, Dr Roger A Mitchell observed gunshot wounds to the right side of Bradford Jr’s body, in his head, neck and lower back. The report states: “The cause of death is gunshot wound of the head. Manner of death is homicide.” […] Initially, Hoover police identified Bradford as the suspect. They later said he was not the suspect, but had “brandished” a gun. Police backed off that claim too. A week after the shooting, a suspect was arrested in Georgia. And then there was “hero” security guard Jemel Roberson, who had actually already subdued the actual suspect when police arrived—and killed the security guard. A black security guard at a bar in the Chicago suburbs was killed by the police as he apparently tried to detain a man he believed to be involved in a shooting, the authorities said Monday. [...] Witnesses told the police that a fight had broken out and someone had started shooting. After the authorities responded, a police officer shot the guard, Jemel Roberson, 26, who had a gun, Ms. Ansari said. Mr. Roberson died at the hospital. Witnesses said that people in the crowd had yelled to arriving police officers that Mr. Roberson, who was wearing gear that read “Security,” was a guard. Ms. Ansari confirmed that Mr. Roberson worked for the bar. These cases are about as clear-cut as possible. These men were absolutely, 100 percent innocent of any wrongdoing. They were safe and the situation was well in hand, until police arrived and murdered them. People should be up in arms. People should be outraged. People should be demanding a change, and they should be demanding that action be taken. Somehow, that doesn’t seem to be happening. Instead, these are being treated a “isolated incidents,” as unhappy accidents, but they aren’t. They’re part of a much larger pattern, and if there wasn’t something deeply wrong within the heart of America, we would be moving heaven and earth to dig ourselves out from under the tapestry of trauma.
