Yep. I do catch myself obsessing from time to time. Oh well. It’s better than being one who has naively supported this clumsy lunatic with criminal tendencies. I am comfortable with what Mr. Mueller eventually concludes because, John, the writing is on the wall. At some point, the truth will arrive for Trump. As oblivious as he is to realty, reality will come to him. I would love to see the look on his face when he realizes he is a sunk ship. Priceless, and, immeasurably sad. What a waste of a life that could have done so much good.

I also think that there is a distinct possibility that the Trump campaign knew that the Russians were helping the campaign with ads etc., an illegal campaign contribution from foreigners. As their efforts were not minor, I find this to be an extremely serious violation of the law. I agree that the Democrats should continue working on solutions though.

Not obsessing, but I am paying close attention. It is somewhat fascinating to watch as this abortion of an administration whirls itself into countless kerfuffles with the constitution, or the law, or with the Russians. It is also discouraging to watch the 30% try to defend the indefensible. Just using the man's own words should be ample cause for those people to abandon him. They've shown that they support re-distributing money from the middle-class to the wealthy; they support deceit and opaqueness in government; they support a so-called president who constantly lies; and they support an admitted sexual predator who in turn supports an accused child molester merely to keep a safe seat in the senate. The whole bunch is morally and ethically bankrupt, yet they look for cover in their bibles. Sad.

Excellent column John, maybe it will quell some of your rabid readers for a couple of days. The only thing I would disagree with is your comment on Starr. When you are investigating the POTUS you are going to be high profile like it or not. Starr was the not the big bad wolf with an agenda and Mueller probably isn't either as some republicans would have us to believe.

Good one John. The Republican Party may find itself having gone down a road that has no room to turn around and a sign at the end saying Dead End. There is no hope for a group of people that would support and vote for a person like Moore, with as much information out there about and against the man. If a person knows or thinks that an act they are about to do is wrong, and then they do it anyway, that just may close the pearly gates to them upon their arrival there. If not, then Hitler asking for the forgiveness of his sins, might even be there.

Hey JB, we actually agree on multiple things in your column.
.
"It is not an expressed crime for President-elect Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to direct the transition operation's main national security person, Michael Flynn, to call the Russian ambassador to try to get the Russians to hold off on a United Nations Security Council resolution. That's called not a crime, but governing, or at least preparation to govern."
.
"...it was voter malfeasance to vote Trump, no matter how unappealing the opposition..."
.
Hey Pop, it's not a crime if the Trump campaign KNEW Russia was doing something of value, it was only a crime if they solicited it or coordinated it.

Whipper,

They accepted an illegal contribution if they KNEW about it. Campaigns are always liable for accepting illegal campaign contributions. The Trump campaign had a duty to ask the Russians to stop and to alert the authorities with respect to these activities. The constant stream of meetings and lies about the meetings all constitute strong circumstantial evidence that they knew what was going on and knew that it was very wrong. If a Democratic campaign had done this, I would want them prosecuted as well.

WOW! When an uber lib like John Brummett start's dumbing down lib hysteria you know things are bad for libs. No collusion, no obstruction of justice, no Hillary EVER.......
.
Hey Pop - There is a distinct possibility a rogue FBI agent and his mistress have screwed the pooch for the entire Mueller investigation. As an attorney, you should better than most understand the concept of "tainted fruit".

So PopMom you think that Hillary was not guilty of anything because she was never convicted of anything and Comey was not guilty of anything and Mueller was not guilty of anything and etc., etc.
And those who are investigating Trump, the same ones who are were claiming to investigating Hillary for destroying evidence that the investigators called for and who received $145 million for her and Husband Bill's Fund for helping grease the flow of USA' Uranium deposits to Russia, the using of a non-secured mailing system, and on and on,
and Comey not placing her under oath ( can't lie if your not under oath) and on and on all things far surpassing any thing the Trump Administration has done, finally we find that the FBI Lead Investigator and his cronies are Hillary lovers and Trump haters just wont put with that no good Trump winning the election over their darling Hillary justifies a witch hunt with a Goal of unseating Trump.

Yeah, I see what your goal is. And what the Democratic Party Goal is. And especially the Swamp Goal.

And now America is on the cusp of becoming a Country run by criminals who have not been elected. They were appointed by the Swamp and they are going to try anything to secure their position of power.

That's how I see it and I believe millions of Americans agree with me.
