Here's the sad likely trend of this whole Trump-Obama wire-tap story.
Within ten days....the Senate will decide that some truth-commission committee needs to form up. The Democrats will realize the full impact of this and start to get real fussy.
By early May, the committee will start up. I suspect that neither former President Obama or AG Lynch will agree to appear.
After four months of testimony and stalling, some charges will be handed over to various individuals. All will be lawyers within the Attorney General's circle....likely all rookies.
The damage to the 2018 mid-terms? Prior to this, one could anticipate six to eight Democratic Senate seats would flip. With the truth-commission and the results.....I'd go ahead and figure 12 Democratic Senate seats will likely flip....giving an enormous advantage to the GOP through 2020.
The sad thing about this is that any idiot could have seen this as a potential train-wreck and refused to participate on the warrant to wire-tap. None of them saw that angle.
As for former President Obama? The sad thing is that when some reporter finally asks the question of when he knew about this.....he will simply answer when the news people announced this story this week. Otherwise, he didn't know nothing....about nothing. It could be the truth because he was simply the 'empty-suit' to the White House, with the handlers running everything.
All of this revolves around some lost sense of ethics.
It seems like every year.....you come across hundreds of examples now of bad ethics.. You have policemen, Wall Street players, bankers, judges, teachers, businessmen, etc....who seem to have made it to a successful point in life, but without any ethics. Their world collapses rapidly when they finally get caught in some mess without a clear exit.
So, settle back and enjoy the whole opera unfolding. The fat lady won't be coming out for at least six months.
