BillK, thanks for that, my British friend.

Think about the consequences: now that unpleasant business about the 2020 election being {fill in your favorite description {you don't need one from me}} is with us forever.  Now we will never really get over that, because we can't ever know for sure if the FBI's actions flipped that election.

I often wonder what this all looks like from the outsider's POV.  I also wonder what it does to the USA's resolve if China grabs Taiwan.  Knowing the US is divided against itself, the Dear Leader might command his Dear Army to take action sooner rather than later.
