We have a problem.
For the sake of this discussion let us presume that Trump and all connected with him are completely innocent of any form of wrong doing with respect to Russia. However, only you and I know this.
Now, allegations (which in this hypothetical are unfounded) have been made about Russian ties to the Trump campaign. Trump needs to be shown blameless so that this issue will be put to rest.
Here is the problem:
Who can do this?
Jeff Sessions? He is not credible simply by virtue of his appointment. The same problem holds true of the Assistant AG as well as the soon to be FBI Director.
I have been distressed by people’s propensity for #Russiantojudgement but that doesn’t mean we should never have a judgement.
I am confident we will find a way through this but I don’t see what that will be and it bothers me.
