I’ve a couple of other posts queued up and don’t have anything novel to add at the moment, but diverting attention away from a scandal bigger than Watergate isn’t something that can be done with a clear conscience. Collusion between the FBI and a presidential campaign to violate the constitutional protections of the oppositional presidential campaign? That’s really bad.
Sessions should end his recusal immediately, interrogate every person mentioned in the memo, level perjury charges against any who are found to be lying–no one named is denying anything so presumably it’s all true–recommend Mueller be fired for having known and done nothing about all of it, and then charge Mueller with conspiracy and obstruction.
Meanwhile, the top story (with graphic) in my twatter search feed:
Minimizing, downplaying, deflecting, and running interference isn’t going to be enough here. We now have senators like Ron Johnson calling for communications between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to be reviewed. A scandal-free administration is what they used to say of Obama’s presidency. Ha! Succulent schadenfreude.
A recurring theme that has emerged over the last couple of years is that of the left introducing something to destroy the right with and then the right repurposing it to destroy left. Fake News, accepting the outcome of an election, the putative sexual harassment ‘epidemic’, election interference, etc. It’s almost as if Republicans are finally learning how to win (in short, by emulating the president).
There is a lot of draining to do. This is only the beginning.
