Shot across the bow of Agent Orange?

 

 

"These charges are a reminder that this is a nation of laws and that everybody stands equal before the bar of justice," said Geoffrey Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, at a press briefing. "Congressman Collins, who by virtue of his office helps to write the laws of this nation, acted as if the law didn't apply to him. The charges today demonstrate once again that no matter what the crime or who committed it, we stand committed in the pursuit of justice without fear or favor."

Well, that was nasty. But typical for you.

These guys are not above the law, so if he did it he needs to pay the price.

For you to say that I’m nasty after your responses to me in a prior thread, is beyond laughable and untrue btw. But for you to lie is no big deal.

You're the one lying. I have backed up every statement I've made here.

To suggest that he might pardon the guy is neither "nasty" nor overreaching, based on his erratic behavior and mercurial temperament up to this point.
