The Conservative Treehouse has a pretty thorough treatment of what President Trump’s order to investigate political motivations in the DOJ’s Trump campaign spying effort means. I have to say I thought Trump and Mueller were playing chicken with each other. Maybe we’ve moved past that. Maybe this now has to be resolved by someone going to prison. Or several somebodies. Unless Mueller has a smoking gun (which seems very unlikely) it looks like McCabe, Comey and company are about to be charged with criminal charges. The thing that occurs to me is that at some point somebody is going to sing to save his own neck. None of these guys wants to go to prison. My guess is McCabe but I am only looking in from the dark outside. Maybe it’ll be Comey or Bruce Ohr or Peter Strzok. But whoever sings first will get the best deal. We live in interesting times. Let’s hope they don’t get much more interesting than they already are.
