Apropos of nothing in particular, one of the most disastrous mistakes of the Italian left during the Berlusconi years was waiting for the justice system to disqualify him from political office or, better still, jail him.
7. If you are promoting a "no indictments: therefore nothing to see here" standard, you are undercutting the left's ability to criticize what is by any reasonable measure an extraordinarily corrupt administration - even by the ordinary standards of US politics.
6. That makes it hard to indict people for doing bad shit - whether with Russians, whether with Saudis, whether with ... take your pick. People like e.g. Tom Barrack are equal opportunity sleazes. But that also means that the standard that Glenn is applying here is a bad one.
5. Put differently, the problem with the United States approach to democracy is _how much_ is legal - how much everyday corruption, sweetheart deals, tacit collusion, bribes-that-aren't-quite-overtly-bribes and so on are part of the system of everyday politics.

An (off-duty) NYPD cop shot & wounded an unarmed man in Brooklyn early today & the lies from the cops have already begun. https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2018/08/02/off-duty-nypd-officer-wounds-man-brooklyn/ … #CopsLie
An NYPD cop shot a man in an argument over a woman, tried to plant a boxcutter him, lied about it, & the media repeated his lies as facts... until video was found. The cop is now being charged but only for planting the blade. Check this thread to see how the story progressed:
Local politics at its worst: a community board member resists a Department of Transportation approved redesign of uptown Amsterdam Avenue (a speeding nightmare). The mayor is absent and people are getting killed by cars.
