Lynch is the most "conservative" member of Massachusetts' all-Democrat congressional delegation; of course, that's not saying much given how far out most of them are. But he's also potentially bucking for higher office (Senate/governor) and I suspect he wants to appeal to a broader constituency in the Commonwealth.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

He's also putting it in perspective with Nixon and Clinton, whereby each time it resulted in impeachment proceedings.

The main thing for democrats is to keep all this stuff away from Obama.

In management theory, a top executive is responsible for what he knows about, and what he should know about. Guilty by reason of negligence.

But it is all orchestrated, planned "plausible deniability."

It's Chicago politics on a national scale. Do whatever is necessary for the agenda, just make sure the boss doesn't get any on him.

It's not shocking, but beyond disgusting that the media and the public have no interest in holding the man in charge accountable for anything. It's Chicago politics with a heaping helping of affirmative action.

Bin Laden: Obama knew every last detail, was hands on, and practically did it himself.
The 3 scandals: Obama is like Sgt. Schultz. He knows nothing, and is responsible for nothing.

Former AG Michael Mukasey was on with Megyn Kelly and they discussed this; he said it is actually a very bad idea because constitutionally any special prosecutor is directly responsible to the POTUS.....  he said it is much better for the congress to do their job in this regard.

So... thinking about what he sad -- no wonder DEMOCRATS are calling for a special prosecutor, it takes the responsibility off their shoulders and lets the WH control the investigation.
