Perhaps, then, we can start drawing up a list of questions reporters can and should ask the GOP field:
* Would you, as president, routinely overturn criminal sentences for unrepentant convicted felons before they serve time behind bars?
* If obstruction of justice and perjury are not serious crimes deserving of serious punishment, what other felonies are you inclined to disregard?
* If there are two systems of justice -- one for politically-connected Republicans, and one for everyone else -- how will you decide who makes the cut?
Feel free to add your own.
