The ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) spoke the truth when said that Republicans would be losing their minds if Hillary Clinton did what Trump’s family is up to with private email.
The truth hurts:

Whether it is the Russia scandal, Trump family conflicts of interest, Trump using the presidency for his own personal gain, or Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s use of private email to conduct government business, the Republican Party has aided and abetted, this president’s criminal activity.
That’s why these scandals aren’t just presidential scandals. They also represent the systemic failure of one of the two major political parties in the United States.
Rep. Cummings was right. Republicans would be losing their minds if the shoe was on the other foot. Hillary Clinton would already be impeached if she did 1/1000th of what Trump has done as president. The fact that Republicans are actively helping this president cover up his crimes suggests that it will take more than the removal of Trump from office to clean up the corruption within the Republican Party.
