If This is True, Our Republic is at an End

Either the FBI engaged in partisan behavior or partisans are trying to undermine basic institutions of law and order.

We think the Roman Republic ended with Caesar crossing the Rubicon or with Octavius being declared the first Emperor. …

Rome kept the resemblance of a republic long after it had actually become a dictatorship in various ways and I am afraid that might be our trajectory. Our Rubicon may have been crossed and we need some honest, sober reflection. Instead, we will get partisan sniping with one side adamant it is not true and the other adamant it is. Truth, in a post-modern America, is hard to come by.
