It is holiday time but we are not in a festive mood.
The national embarrassment sitting in the White House has zapped us of our usual holiday cheer. Try as we may, we just cannot jingle our bells or deck our halls as in years past. We need something only you can provide that will lift us out of our funk … an indictment or two.
Yes, we were happy when you announced your first indictments against Paul Manafort and Richard Gates. We were thrilled when George Papadopoulos was the first Trump aide to plead guilty in your Trump-Russia probe. But that was nearly two months ago.
We were more than ecstatic when you got former Trump national security advisor, Mike Flynn, to plead guilty to lying to the FBI. But that too was nearly one month ago.
We are in disperate need of a new dose of good news.
An indictment against Donald Trump Jr., or Jared Kushner, would do just fine.
We know you have the goods on these two loathsome human beings. Why not make your announcement now … before the start of the New Year?
We have been given a heads up by Senate Intelligence Committee member, Mark Warner, that something big is about to come down the pike. While appearing on MSNBC this week, Warner confirmed that “more” indictments are coming. So why not now?
Call it our Christmas present.
What’s that you say? Too cruel to announce indictments at Christmas time? You and your team of investigators would be seen as mean, biased, partisan hacks?
Sorry, but a good portion of the country, along with the man occupying the Oval Office and many congressional Republicans, already see your investigation as a “witch hunt.”
But we trust your judgment. If you are waiting until after the start of 2018 to drop the hammer of justice, I guess we can wait.
God bless you, Mr. Mueller. God bless us, every one.
