I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: Mueller’s investigation is a “which hunt.” Which ones meddled and colluded with the Russians? Which committed treason or fraud? Which lied to Congress and/or the FBI? Which perjured themselves? Which obstructed justice?
Of course, some of the questions above were answered today. Paul Manafort was found guilty on eight counts of fraud, and Michael Cohen, Trump’s “fixer,” pleaded guilty to eight other criminal charges.
Trump’s reaction about Manafort? “He happens to be a very good person, and I think it's very sad what they've done to Paul."
REALLY?!?! It's very sad what THEY have done to HIM? THE MAN WAS FOUND GUILTY OF FRAUD!!!! And Trump doesn’t think it’s a good thing when the American justice system works? Simply. Unbelievable.
Then came the news of Cohen: Michael Cohen said in court that he committed federal campaign finance violations in coordinating hush money payments to two women — Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal — “in coordination AND AT THE DIRECTION OF a candidate for federal office.”
How sad, right? i mean, I’m sure Cohen is a good person. At least I hear he was a good “fixer” – and who doesn’t need a “fixer." It's a shame what THEY are doing to HIM, am I right?
The walls seem to be closing in on the man who only surrounds himself with the best people. Who knows -- maybe if we're lucky, this national nightmare will end sooner than later.
That thought, the close of an Orange man's career, called to mind Emmett Lee Dickinson's "Whose Orange career may have a close" (below on the left). Dickinson's poem inspired third cousin Emily to pen her poem "Whose Pink career may have a close" (below on the right).
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
Whose Orange career may have a close
Pretentious as he is, who knows?
To implicate him Fixers wilt
In angst and indicate, his guilt
By Emily Dickinson:
Whose Pink career may have a close
Portentous as our own, who knows?
To imitate these Neighbors fleet
In awe and innocence, were meet.
