Agreed. But let's not try to run our public discourse the way a judge runs a court. You know, instructions like, "The jury will disregard that last comment." The information is out there now, and we are entitled to consider it. So, let's try not to let the issue about how it was obtained obscure the fact that the letters exist, and that they contain damning evidence of Democrats' motives.

I agree with that point. Punish the staffer. Slam the Dims who wrote the memo. I am strongly against the analogous exclusionary rule, which requires the suppression of relevant evidence if the police collected it incorrectly. The person still committed the crime, and should be punished. The officer who did something wrong should likewise suffer a penalty, one that is proportionate to the offense. Failed to read the guy his rights? Dock his pay, but don't put a murderer back out on the street.
