Well, okay, you’d expect her to say that. I mean, the fox would certainly try to convince the farmer that the hens were dying of natural causes.
But is she wrong? What on earth is going on here? Somehow, without a shred of evidence that anybody colluded with Russia, other than that they talked to Russians, we’ve had months of investigations by the FBI, Congress, and now a special prosecutor into the possibility that someone might have colluded with Russians.
I don’t know why a special prosecutor was appointed. Attorney General Jeff Sessions had already recused himself, the FBI was looking into the matter, and Congress seemed on its way to wrapping up its own investigation. And how did it solve whatever conflict of interest issue there was by appointing a special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, who has a longstanding friendship with the star witness, James Comey?
As to obstruction of justice, that’s for Congress to probe. The president is not going to be subject to a criminal trial. He will be impeached, or not. And even if you want to do a criminal probe, why couldn’t Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein supervise it? A special prosecutor amounts to an endless search which eventually bumps into something somebody did wrong, which is not the correct concept of criminal justice in our country.
If the Democrats want to bring down the Trump presidency through investigations, at least let George Soros fund it, not taxpayers.
