Corruption probe as war on speech

The idea that a Democratic partisan launched a more or less unconstrained and unending series of investigations of a Republican looks bad. The appearance of impropriety is heightened by the fact that some of the legal theories that the prosecutors are pushing are highly questionable and the tactics employed – pre-dawn raids and leaning on witnesses – are dangerous overkill when the subject is, at it is here, fraught with free speech concerns.
