The new abortion law has a provision that would punish a woman for going to another state to get an abortion. What is the legal justification for this? How would it be enforced? IANAL

First, the basic authorities. The basic issue which I’ve heard spun over the last five days is this was all “legitimate collection.” Now that’s the key to the whole thing because the people are on other networks spinning this denied they were spying to begin with, but now that we know they were spying, it was all done “by the book.” GOP allegations equaling fact and… Read more »


So which is it: Obama knew about Russian interference and didn’t do anything about it, or he DID do something about it but he shouldn’t have?
