If Dem political staff had done what Don, Jr. and Kushner did, ignorance of law wouldn't be excuse.

I just have a strong feeling that if it had been Democratic candidate staffers that a higher bar would apply and that being ignorant would not be believed or acceptable as a reason for not going after them.

And it pisses me off.

The bar has been lowered so much for these clowns itís buried in the dirt.

Notre-Dame's precious rooster statue found 'battered' in debris

Amazing that this statue that was atop the spire survived the fire and the fall from that height.


Paris (AFP) - A wrought copper statue of a rooster that sat atop Notre-Dame has been found "battered" in the debris of the Paris cathedral following its devastating fire, France's culture ministry said.

The statue is considered all the more important because it contains three holy relics -- including a fragment of the Crown of Thorns believed by Christians to have been worn by Jesus Christ during his crucifixion, placed there to protect Parisians.

The sculpture of the bird -- which is an unofficial symbol of France -- was recovered Tuesday by a restorer picking through the rubble left when the spire on which it had sat toppled at the height of the inferno that ravaged Notre-Dame on Monday, a ministry spokesman told AFP.


Because of the statue's damage, it was not yet possible to verify if the Crown of Thorns fragment or the other relics were still inside, the official said.


France 24 now reporting the main structure of Notre Dame will be saved per the fire fighters.


Churches around France are ringing their bells in solidarity with Notre-Dame.
