The way to handle Democrats is to fight vigorously.  But, that's something GOPers don't know how to do.  They prefer to bitch up and run away.  
Wall Street Journal-Democrats and their media allies finally got their man. After weeks of political pressure, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein blinked late Wednesday and announced that he has named a special counsel to investigate Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election.
