I haven’t seen this many people gathered in one place since they took the group photo of all the criminals and lawbreakers in the Reagan administration. 225 of them so far. 225 different people in Ronald Reagan’s administration have either been fired, arrested, indicted, or convicted… of either breaking the law or violating the ethics code. Edwin Meese alone has been investigated by three separate special prosecutors and there’s a fourth one waiting for him in Washington right now. Three separate special prosecutors have had to look into the activities of the attorney general! And the attorney general is the nation’s leading LAW-ENFORCEMENT OFFICER! This is what you gotta remember. This is the Ronald Reagan administration–these are the LAW AND ORDER people. These are the people who are against street crime. They want to put street criminals in jail to make life safer for business criminals. They’re against street crime so long as it isn’t WALL Street.
