    In other news, some people have a risktaking gene. They have gambling problems, have been known to drink to excess, and just might be guilty of sexual assault. Do we want someone taking risks with our constitution?

    No, that's why it's important to get conservatives onto the court.

    Unfortunately some people's idea of conservativism is to defend anything a president does as executive privilege if he has an R behind his name.

    Perhaps on a very superficial level, but I doubt superficiality is a problem on the Supreme Court.

    They've done it before in similar circumstances.

    To clarify my statement. The FBI cannot conduct a criminal investigation with the intention of superseding local primary jurisdiction in a state criminal matter. They could as a matter of a background investigation, conduct interviews and forward their results to the Senate. There has been no accusation of a federal crime so the FBI has no interest or authoriAtion to conduct a criminal investigation. Thatís up to the Maryland County agency holding venue where the alledged actions occurred.
