The Republicans have found another scandal to pursue. Two FBI personnel were texting each other messages about how stupid and incompetent Donald Trump is. (As well as why one of them may have voted for him since they hated Hillary too.) The one agent who was involved in the Mueller investigation of Trump was immediately removed from the investigation when evidence of the possibility of lack of impartiality surfaced. This happened long before the Republican Conspiracy Elephants sniffed out the detail to make a big stinky in the media about it. Now, apparently the FBI has become a secret society wrongfully plotting against Trump.
One wonders how a Republican government can investigate a Republican scandal and do it in a way that at least looks like justice in action instead of howling at the wind in order to make it blow in the other direction.
The basic problem is what the Republican mind has on the inside. Basically they all have the same thought embedded in the peanut they think with. “If it doesn’t benefit me and what I want from government, then it isn’t true no matter what facts you show me.” And of course, that thought has a corollary (even though they don’t know what corollary means), “I’m good with any lie told as long it supports hatred of those people I want to hate.” Republicans who think with larger pieces of produce, and so don’t have those thoughts engraved in their brains, have either left the Republican Party, like George Will did, or separated themselves from the Trump faction and started a campaign to take their party back, like Bill Crystal did.
Anybody who thinks about the evidence honestly, without partisan bias, has to admit that there is obviously guilt involved in all of this. And Trump himself blowing back against the prevailing winds is only making it more and more obvious that he is at the top of the pile of evil actors. They cannot keep going down this path of shouting down the truth without turning Trump into Hitler, and 2018 into 1939. Muslims will take the role of Jews.
So, what can we do about it? We make our votes count. And when the Mueller investigation reaches its conclusions, we believe them.
