The Growing Clamor for a Special Prosecutor of the Trump-Russia Case

From the beginning of the investigation by committees in the House and Senate into possible connections between the Trump Campaign and Russian hacking of Hillary Clinton’s email and the DNC headquarters, there have been calls for a special prosecutor to be named to de-politicize the investigation.  Legislators, especially Republicans, have argued against naming one.  Mitch McConnell, Senate majority leader, has wanted to sweep the investigation to the side so that “more pressing”…

Where Is The Silver Lining

It’s been a sort of miserable day.  After an overcast morning the rain started about noon, and it is pouring now.  L showed me a place where there is a water problem with water coming down the outside wall onto the screen porch.  It is at a place where the gutter does a 90 degree bend and a roof valley empties.  Ugh.

James Comey, Legal Moralist Or Self-Serving Unconscionable Fool?

French Election Bears Little Comparison to America: Actual People Elect Their President

There’s continuing mythology that, in light of Brexit and America’s election, the world will soon be dominated by the political right-wing.
