Surprise surprise, reports Andrew Cohen at CBS, the Republican National Platform contains the following language:
“The rule of law, the very foundation for a free society, has been under assault, not only by criminals from the ground up, but also from the top down.
“An administration that lives by evasion, coverup, stonewalling, and duplicity has given us a totally discredited Department of Justice. The credibility of those who now manage the nation’s top law enforcement agency is tragically eroded.”
The RNC promoted this position during the 2000 election.
