In it, but not of it. TPM DC

It's a profound paradox that Donald Trump's deputy campaign manager David Bossie finds himself in today.

He is fighting for a candidate who is facing an onslaught of allegations that he groped and forcefully kissed women over several decades, the same kind of sexual impropriety that Bossie spent decades of his life alleging former President Bill Clinton was involved in.

Bossie helped write the playbook against the Clintons. He personally hit the pavement and investigated Clinton's sexual improprieties under the guise of moral superiority. His reputation on the House's Oversight Committee was that of a man laser-focused on uncovering every facet of Whitewater no matter how obscure.

The list of Republican lawmakers who are ditching Donald Trump is growing fast since
