If you didn't get qualifying health insurance then you were fined. If you didn't pay the fine then you risked jail. If you fled then now you are an "enemy of the state" and they will kill you.

Bullshit. The only truth is that first sentence. Nobody has been declared an "enemy of the State" for not purchasing health insurance. Nor has anyone been jailed. Keep your alt-right fantasies to yourself, please.

... it may turn out they don't even have the votes in the Senate to do much else but filibuster Clinton nominees

And if Chuck Schumer has his act together, he can have the Senate rules changed on day 1 of the new session to eliminate filibuster for any confirmations.

Comey probably knew about the (apparent) cell in the NY FBI office who have a hard-on about HRC, and knew they were going to leak something, so he decided to get out in front of it with his letter to Congress. I do give him some credit for his subsequent letter yesterday, but it would have been better IMO if he had shut up and let the leaks happen, then come down like a ton of bricks on the leakers.

Gore didn't accept the result in 2000 (well, at first he did - then when the FL Secretary of State on election night announced an automatic recount, he rescinded his concession) because, until the FL and US Supreme Courts ruled, the election wasn't over yet. As soon as the courts ruled, he made a very gracious concession.

Watergate - Hillary was fired from the staff of the House Judiciary committee investigating the Nixon Watergate scandal in 1974 by her supervisor, Democrat Jerry Zeifman, because she was a liar []. Hillary "conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

Except that Zeifman was not her supervisor, and she wasn't fired
