In some States, the police are now required to make an arrest if called to a domestic dispute. Apparently, this is in response to the number of cases where, after being cooperative with the police during their 'visit', a spouse has beaten the crap out of the one that called the police.
The arrest does not have to result in charges, and can simply entail a ride to a local motel or safe-house.
I believe the Republicans, instead of seizing the opportunity to deflect attention from their own woes by pointing out that this typifies the high level of corruption that continues to exist in the Democratic Party, have opted to defend Congressional protection against efforts to prosecute such corruption, mindless of the fact that it just such issues that helped them gain power.
There's some truth to the old adage of "power corrupts." I don't know how you can be a career politician and not be tainted
