    When Leahy learned that Republicans had cracked into the Senate Judiciary Committee's Democratic majority email server during the first round of Bush's nominations, Leahy did nothing. He was the committee chair. The Justice Committee Chair.

    Nobody was ever arrested. The committee never did anything to pursue either justice or even mere self-defense. The nomination process continued with Republicans knowing everything about Democrats' planned positions on the nominations and the process.

    And Bush got everyone he wanted.

    And Democrats didn't filibuster anyone.

    That is how the world works: Republicans get their hands dirty, and Democrats let them do it.
