Commit a crime and the world is made of glass.  Commit a crime and it seems a coat of snow fell on the ground, such as reveals in the woods the track of every partridge and fox and squirrel and mole.  You cannot recall (take back) the spoken word.  You cannot wipe out a foot track.  You cannot draw up the ladder so as to leave no inlet or clue.  Some damning circumstance always transpires.

        — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today we dedicate that bit of poetic prescience to Messrs. James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Christopher Steele, Bruce Ohr, and James Baker. In an effort to negate the appearance of being sexist and in an attempt to be all inclusive, we must also include Lisa Paige, Nellie Ohr, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Sally Yates, Fusion GPS, Loretta Lynch, most members of the “mainstream” media and any other ancillary associates of this gang.

Turns out that bearing false witness may indeed carry the possibility of legal repercussions, and all of these characters are scurrying about pointing their fingers at each other. Talk about a circular firing squad! What appears to have been a really ugly game these players have been playing for about three years in an effort of overturn a legitimate election suddenly has the possibility of sunshine being shined upon it! Who would have ever imagined that this country would ever witness a bloodless coup by the “deep state? Obviously those who practice professional politics — probably begun during the Clinton era — felt they could get away with it.

Attorney General William Barr has begun an examination of the questionable methods and sources which were used to figuratively begin an anal exam of a man who was new to the ways of Washington and the political machinations which are practiced there.

A Democratic-controlled house continues to rehash the Mueller investigation, which after all this time with a staff of attorneys which seem to have been selected for anti-Trump, was able to find nothing of consequence in their mission. After all this time of being promised that evidence was plain to see by people like California’s Adam Schiff there is nothing, period. Yet, Democrats want to look at his taxes, his family and probably even his school years.  In the meantime all the nation’s problems are effectively being ignored by this bunch of Sherlock Holmes wannabes.

Obviously they continue the witch hunt as long as they the support of sycophantic allies in the media, especially the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC.  These are willing members of the media who eagerly spread the trash in the Steele dossier and breathlessly reported it as truth.
