Democrats know they are vulnerable, and they are nervous about what else may soon come to light in the pending FBI inspector general’s report. Democrats won’t admit the severity of what might emerge, so they’re deflecting.

And the effort by Republican leaders in Congress to uncover the truth about what went on among a few senior FBI agents during the presidential campaign is hardly out of line or an affront to American law enforcement.

As a matter of perspective, to say the least, the Democratic coalition doesn’t include rank-and-file law enforcement. The Democrats are controlled by interest groups including public-sector unions, trial lawyers, entertainment elites, hedge-fund billionaires and assorted angry left-wing grievance groups.
