By All Means, Investigate Everybody

Hurray for investigations! 

If they are, you know, investigations

Congressional Republicans have promised to look into the shady business dealings of Hunter Biden, the drug-addled-but-just-remarkably-successful-in-business son of President Joe Biden. At the same time, the Justice Department—the boss of which reports to President Biden—has announced the appointment of a special counsel to oversee investigations into Donald Trump’s attempts to illegally interfere with the transfer of power after the 2020 presidential election as well as the mishandling of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago. 

If it turns out that everybody on both sides of the aisle is guilty of everything they are accused of and then some, I will be the least surprised American since Tiffany Trump opened up her wedding present from her father and found a $20 Trump Grill gift certificate inside. But there is some work to be done, first.
