Can you imagine being those lawyer's spouses? "How was work, honey? "Classified. But, daaaaaamn. Can't tell you anything, but, shiiiiiieeeet." Just watching the news with them had to be an exercise in poker faces.
Do they come home from work happy because of a new development in the case, or melancholy for the same reason? I can only imagine how being up to your neck in this foolishness has to affect a sane person.
I'd like to see "Greg -- Just an intern." at the bottom of the list.
It's a team of top-tier legal and investigative talent. There's no indication that the team has a political agenda like Benghazi or Whitewater both of which seemed to be political hit jobs. I love how Ken Starr hated Clinton and was working with a bias and political agenda and that was fine, but some low level FBI agent working on the Trump investigation hates Trump and that's the worst thing that ever happened to our professional victim President. The FBI agent should have acted professionally, but if anything Mueller and team will go over everything he worked on with an even closer eye to make sure it's up to par.
I'm about as anti-Trump as you can get, but I'll 110% accept their findings if I wake up one day and Mueller is looking at the camera saying "we found no evidence of criminal activity". By what little information is public, it seems unlikely. So far Trump's former campaign chief is under house arrest for some serious fucking crimes, and his former choice for national security advisor as well as a high-ranking campaign advisor on foreign policy have both pleaded guilty to crimes. That's not a good sign it's an investigation that is going to find nothing.
It's very likely the ones that pleaded guilty to a wrist-slap when they were likely guilty of harsher crimes did so because they gave valuable information on someone higher up the chain, and you don't get much higher than the fucking head of your national security council.
He makes a very good point about what it takes to recruit that kind of talent. Mueller has to have a wealth of solid evidence, an impeccable reputation and professional trust, or an extremely generous compensation package. And I doubt it's the money.
This makes me hopeful, but anxious. If a legal team of this stature wins, I think the proceeding "wake up" of America will be the defining movement of the post 9/11 era. On the other hand, if money and backstabbing prevail, I can't imagine a bleaker state of politics and national pride.
