“Political crimes aren’t like ordinary crimes. They are worse. They are also outside the ‘innocent until proven guilty’ standard, which applies to most other crimes; crimes committed by people without political power. With an ordinary crime, you often have to figure out whether any crime was committed at all. Maybe it was an accident or a natural occurrence. Then, if it is discovered there was a crime, you have to try to find out who committed it. This isn’t how political crimes work. Most political crimes are committed in public, in front of cameras, with the guilty party bragging afterward about what they’ve done.” (09/17/23)
