For a year and a half we have been hearing about Russian collusion literally non-stop. Wolf Blitzer of CNN looks like he hasn’t slept in months as he continues to scour for evidence, even a small shred that once and for all will end his Trump nightmare. James Comey (geez, I am so sick of hearing about this guy!) continues to gleefully do his book tour as he and political pundits of all stripes debate just exactly what is and is not a “leak.”
Meanwhile, not even white smoke signals of intent emanate from the far-reaches of the Game of Thrones like isolated House of Mueller chimney. Well, except for the FBI busting down the door of Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen as they searched for several items including the “Access Hollywood” tape where Trump boasts of his secret elixir to attract women (Hint: It’s called money) nary a word has been whispered.
Meanwhile, it is rumored that the Russian Collusion investigation is closely following the continued legal spat between Stephanie Clifford, aka, “Stormy Daniels” the porn, um, excuse me, adult entertainment star and her alleged affair some 10 years ago with Donald Trump and their confidentiality agreement with then candidate Trump.
Is this what the Russian Collusion investigation has become?
Allegations of illegal unmasking and spying on Trump campaign members, illegal FISA warrants, questionable memos, FBI lovebirds who wanted to craft an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency even as they handled the investigation against Hillary Clinton’s email server, internecine feuding between top DOJ officials, the ruination of General Flynn’s career, the shady pre-Trump campaign dealings of venture capitalist Paul Manafort and what seems like a lifetime of spying on small-fry Carter Page and his alleged Russian dealings.
Like I said, is this what the Russian Collusion investigation has left on our shores after its initial Tsunami-like hype?
While Democrats like Adam Schiff (D-CA) continue to vow that “there is evidence out there somewhere” and all Dems would seemingly like to see a never-ending Special Counsel investigation (unless of course it ends with some smoking-gun evidence of a Vodka-swilling Trump and a vodka-swilling Putin in cahoots which then leads to a rapid Impeachment and removal of the hated Trump) the reality seems to be that this now year and a half long investigation has been largely a bust. Even Nancy Pelosi conceded recently that “it’s possible that Russian Collusion fatigue has set in.” Though she did quickly add that even if it takes another 3 or even 7 years we shouldn’t rush the process. And you thought the Philly 76ers refused to rush “the process.”
In a swamp (DC) obsessed with leaking and leakers it seems inconceivable that even the stoic, granite-chiseled House of Mueller would not be able to hide the fact of finding any real evidence of collusion if indeed, they found any.
And yet, we continue to trudge through the swamp and muck being stoked and uncovered from both sides. We are besieged daily with “breakthroughs” and “bombshells” amidst a seemingly endless stream of memos, leaks, documents, texts and he saids, she saids, all allegedly proving beyond a doubt that Trump didn’t collude or that he absolutely did, depending.
So, the question really does seem worth repeating one final time. This investigation which seems to have been launched on a rather dubious if not outright “incredible” piece of political opposition research, in effect an investigation that began with no evidence of a crime (does that not strike anyone else as absurd in a democracy where we normally operate our justice system in a completely polar opposite manner?) an investigation which now clearly has no scope, boundaries nor moorings may now, finally be time to wrap things up.
Let the House of Mueller make its grand promulgation and let us peasants simply move on with our lives.
But no matter what happens or is found or not found, please, someone take Jim Comey to a kingdom far, far away.
If, for no other reason that even a Blitzer named Wolf needs to get some shut eye sometime. And to stop his infernal howling at the moon of impeachment.
