  • (@BuckSexton) The ease with which 90% of the media justifies an FBI investigation of a sitting President based on an insane “he could be a Russian agent, or be totally innocent” standard-is a STUNNING example of how worthless most of media is as an impartial advocate for basic due process. Tweet.
