“Beating a dead horse ...”

Wikipedia writes: “beating a dead horse is an idiom that means a particular request or line of conversation is already foreclosed or otherwise resolved, and any attempt to continue is futile, or that to continue in any endeavor is a waste of time as the outcome is already decided.”

Sound familiar? This is exactly what's going on now with the Republicans in the Senate. Despite the fact that the FBI (again) forcefully defended its decision to not criminally charge Hillary Clinton they were obliged to turn over a variety of material from the investigation to the Oversight Committee this week. The GOP controlled Congress is now about to start an investigation that is sure to be extremely costly and I wouldn't mind so much EXCEPT ….guess who is paying for this? That's right …WE, the TAXPAYERS !!!

You can bet that not a penny of this will affect the members of that committee … they already have perks above and beyond the imagination of most of us ordinary citizens ! But, think about it … how can we possibly believe anything that will come out of this ? Much of the material is classified and should be kept that way but you know that there will be “leaks” ...and these will be half-truths and conjectures.

There is no question that Secretary of State Clinton was negligent in her Email use when in office ...BUT ,,, what about these two Secretary of States who did the same thing? Yep, you guessed it … the two paragons of virtue are none other than Condoleeza Rice and Colon Powell ! I guess that just goes to show that, after all is said and done, these three are merely humans, after all.

It boggles the mind, doesn't it?

Sauce for the goose is not sauce for the gander.

You are so right.
I have often wondered why the Dems are not as prone to pushing investigation after investigation of the same thing over and over again. Just like the idiots still claiming Obama is a Muslim from Kenya and that they never really saw his birth certificate.
Some people just like to try to hurt anyone who is not on their team and don't like to give it up.

This is one of the only horses they have so they keep beating it. I don't suppose that if Hillary is prosecuted that they will then go after Rice and Powell. Fat chance.

Amazing and boring how first one side then the other beats up (a dead horse?) on whomever. Stupid, stupid, stupid! And DT won't fix it. Latst example, criticizing Obama for playing golf while Louisiana drowns. Oh that's right Dems did it to Bush re: Katrina. Last night the Democrat governor of LA said, "stay away to presidents and want to be presidents". Takes highways, police cars and overtime best spent on citizens of Louisiana to accomodate every visit by a celebrity.

I have five nephews, one sister, one brother and one former SIL living in LA. Sister is for Hillary, don't know about the others.Several have been flooded out.

Yes that horse is dead and Fix News began trying various other similar schemes several decades ago. Ugh!

And don't even think of how much money McCrory has diverted from our emergency relief funds to defend the "bathroom law." Surely hope we have no floods or hurricanes that would cause us to need that money they have thrown away so recklessly. Fortunately our State is beginning to turn blue and I desperately hope that as Trump goes down here, he takes a lot of "down-ticket" folks with him.
