I remember buying a T-shirt that said "It's Mueller Time! - Justice Served Cold". I thought his report would sink Trump. Neither the report nor the two subsequent impeachment trials later would sink the unsinkable Donald, who now looks to run in 2024 with a significant war chest. The Mueller Report is a dim memory.
Sometimes I feel like Charlie Brown trusting Lucy to hold the football. I keep trusting the government is going to act, that Trump will be brought to task, but each time Lucy pulls the football away at the last second.
This is my way of saying I have been wrong before. Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part, but I think I'm finally beginning to hear the wheels turning. Aside what is happening with the January 6th Committee or the Georgia Investigation, it looks like the DOJ is finally beginning to warm up.
'Warm up' is a relative term. The Department Of Justice moves like a glacier: slowly but inexorably. And if the object of the investigation is a former President, doubly so. Merrick Garland knows this probably the most important case in the history of the Justice Department. But it feels like it is finally going to happen. The dam of Executive Privilege seems to be cracking, and there almost appears to be a rush of witnesses, lest their story be the last to influence the narrative. And the narrative forming seems to create a picture of a President who is criminally culpable.
I feel a glimmer of hope.
