He is not my favorite guy style wise, but it is clear that the Dems fear him.

Not a post-Breitbart Breitbart fan, but this is accurate. Really, just WTF.

Why in the actual fuck is that judge not repeatedly kicking that prosecutor in the nuts?

The judge is probably a Clinton or Obama appointee.

Why did the felony case in Texas, against the presidential hopeful, get so far before being thrown out? Sadly, the Democrats I talk to are OK with this kind of thing, as long as Republicans are the victims.

Eric Greitens is a white male Republican from a Catholic & Jewish family, who earned his Ph.D at Oxford as a Rhodes scholar. He is a former Navy Seal who attained the rank of lieutenant commander, was deployed 4 times, and was awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Time Magazine included him in their list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2013.

Kim Gardner is a female African-American Democratic lawyer, and is St. Louis's first black Circuit Attorney. And since she took over, there has been a long list of assistant circuit attorneys quitting.

To them, of course, the investigation into Hillary's email server, and the classified material found there, was a politically motivated witch hunt. Nevermind that their side actually controlled the investigating agency (or that she's clearly guilty, and her pantsuit should be prison orange right now.)

A new, second felony charge. The Republicans are starting to turn on him.

In a nation of laws, you investigate a crime to try to find evidence showing which person committed it. In a nation of men, you investigate a person to try to find evidence of a crime.

So... AG Hawley is is the front-running Republican trying to unseat the incumbent Democrat Senator. He's taking a 'hard line' on Greitens in what appears to be an attempt to look better to moderate voters who might be influenced to vote against the Democrat, but aren't happy with Greitens' alleged conduct. Color me surprised.

And the original felony charges were just dropped.

In addition, the lead 'investigator' is now looking at his own perjury investigation.

I am not a Greitens fan, but I am even less of a fan of using random over reaching investigations to take down political opponents. I think the Collusion investigation falls in the same camp (not a Trump fan either).

For reference, I wasn't in favor of the Whitewater or Irangate expansions either. Although the original investigations in those cases at least involved crimes, but they rapidly deteriorated from there. That seems to be the way they go.

Greitens big issue now is that after a year + in office bashing his own party, not too many of them feel like jumping to his defense .

When did ANY government entity ever close up shop and go away voluntarily after their original purpose was no longer applicable?

It's been attributed to Stalin, but I think Felix Dzerzhinsky said it first, "Show me the man, I'll show you the crime."
Iron Felix was, of course, the head of the Soviet Cheka, the OGPU, and the GPU.
The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
E.g.:
"I believe in Freedom of Speech, but". . .
"I support the Second Amendment, but". . .
