The two most overworked and meaningless phrases in political oratory:

We/I will hold them/him/her/someone accountable.

We will bring them/him/her/someone to justice.

Especially when used by our current president. I get the distinct impression that once he has uttered either of these phrases, the issue (whatever) has successfully been put to rest.
