A Real Scandal Builds Around Trump. Congressional Hearings? Don't need 'Em.

There were something like thirty-three hearings on Hillary Clinton's nothing-burgers of scandal. Trump gets embroiled in a real scandal involving real breaking of the law, and what? Yawn.

Jason Chaffetz: We don't need to show you no stinking hearings!

At least if you're going to be hypocritical and ridiculously partisan, you might as well do it both ways.

Investigate Clinton? Sure! Investigate Flynn? Nah! Clinton never got her emails hacked. Flynn called the Russians -- it's on tape! -- and cut deals to cut sanctions, breaking at least one clear law. So, of course, no reason to investigate.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said Tuesday he will not pursue an investigation into what contacts Michael Flynn had with the Russian government before Donald Trump took office, and whether Flynn then lied about his communications.
Another congressman suggested it's the leakers that should get busted, not the perp:
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday he may carry out an investigation ― but regarding the leaks of details about Flynn’s call, rather than his actual conduct.
And, of course, who's waiting for Comey -- who's been on this for a while now -- to announce an investigation? Er, everyone. Any bets on what will happen?
