Trump won, neutralized the attack against him based on the video, and landed some good blows.  All the right folks are of course horrified by his comments about a special prosecutor.  It’s not a decent into fascism to prosecute your opponent if they have actually committed crimes, which Hillary has.  Mishandling classified material, destroying evidence that had been subpoenaed, those are things that should be prosecuted.  If we want to talk about whether or not the US is a banana republic, let’s consider how the FBI whitewashed the whole investigation, and provided legal immunity to all of Clinton’s co-conspirators without getting anything in return.  Let’s discuss the use of the FBI and IRS to harass conservatives.  Using the organs of the state to attack your political opponents, and to protect your friends from facing justice… those are what corrupt our political system.
