Obvious statement is obvious, I know.
Here is the deal, though. This topic is SO politically charged and important that your average, honest user, that is blinded by politics, will be here throwing shade one way or the other.
There will most certainly be government actors and paid political activists here trying to manipulate discussion on this topic.
There is simply too much at stake to let this subject go unmanipulated. There are very powerful people with a lot to lose now and they will do everything and anything to avoid being brought to justice.
I think we can expect scorched Earth tactics being employed by lots of different people in an attempt to avoid being held accountable.
This scandal is likely going to make everyone unhappy as they see their heroes fall. This could make the entire system crash if enough people legitimately lose faith and confidence in the system.
Imagine learning your heroes, the people you voted for, the people that espoused your ideals are criminals of the worst order? That is going to happen.
And if you think your side is safe and you sit there smugly watching your political opponents squirm, then you are not paying attention.
This scandal is going to include a lot of people and will cover both sides of the isle.
