Proliferating Scandals Make Mueller Investigation Ludicrous

How many scandals can you fit on the head of a pin - or, in Maoist parlance, let a Hundred Scandals Bloom! And given the way they are blooming, Robert Mueller's "Russia" investigation looks increasingly ludicrous.

Even if Mueller were even-handed and the exact right person for the job - an open question at the moment - no single special counsel could handle all this. It's a game of whack-a-mole to beat all games of whack-a-mole....

Now let's play that game from Sesame Street - "One of these things is not like the others." Yes, you got it. It's number one. In that case, Republicans are under suspicion. In all five others, it's the Democrats. And yet the only one under official investigation by Robert Mueller and crew is one. Something rotten in the state of...? You bet!

Supposed bien pensant insiders like Lindsey Graham insist that if Trump fires Mueller, the president is done for. I am not so sure. But whatever the case, I have another suggestion. Don't fire Mueller. Cancel the investigation itself and replace it with a global investigation, one that brings together all aspects of the present political crisis, all these scandals, real or imagined....
