Later, Ryan and McConnell agreed to a vote on limited criminal justice reform.

For retroactive violations of the Cuba embargo.

And misuse of charitable foundations for slush funds or tax avoidance.

Limited to Americans whose surnames rhyme with “Frump”.

Observers anticipate overwhelming Republican support.

Which, of course, depends in turn on whether their state/district will tolerate a Senator/Representative who might do something horrifying like lessen the rate at which black men are incarcerated and/or lose their voting rights.

Campaign screeds from Donald Trump on the state of rising crime in America => halt all efforts on criminal justice reform.

My logic circuits are not in sync with the very, very smart, capable people in the GOP.
