In light of the criminal charges revealed on Feb. 16 by special counsel Robert Mueller for election meddling, anyone who still sees the investigation as a hoax, needs to seek immediate medical attention.
Give the president credit though; his campaign warnings that the election was being rigged, proved prophetic. Granted, it should probably be noted that he was projecting himself as the victim of wrong-doing, not the beneficiary. Over the final months, Russia budgeted $1.25 million monthly for the effort to influence the election in his favor. To exactly what degree these crimes contributed to his success may be unknowable.
It seems a reasonable guess however, that the assistance he received, when considered along with the fact that he lost the popular vote by 3 million, will cause even more people to question the legitimacy of his presidency; sad! But the following irony will ease the intensity of any pity: This is the very same shameless slime-ball who led the conspiracy challenging his predecessor’s legitimacy with demonstrably false claims that he was a Kenyan-born Muslim who was lying about his place of birth.
Meanwhile, as he keeps screeching like a deranged parrot about there being no collusion, the investigation continues. And although his assertion may prove true, a bit of skepticism is understandable. After all, as a friend observes with her usual eloquence, the president promised to drain the swamp but instead, turned it into a cesspool and he, the biggest example of what one finds there, has floated to the top.
