The Ballad of Alberto Gonzalez, Redux

The vibe the media has chosen to take reminds me of this Tom Waits poem "What's he building in there": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAP_JBRBECk

Everything is sinister.  Didn't you just KNOW that Alberto Gonzalez was covering up something SINISTER?  That's why he had to resign, for firing people who were always fired, but in a peculiarly sinister way.  He was UP TO SOMETHING.  What was he firing them for?  What did he have to hide?

WHAT WAS HE BUILDING IN THERE?  WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW.

And of course, there is a checklist.  First he is sinister, then she is sinister, then we are sinister, then they are sinister.  Pure evil as far as the eye can see, secrets galore, terrors and betrayals, secret treasons and dark alliances.

WHAT THE HELL IS HE BUILDING IN THERE?

But you know, Donald Trump had NO CHANCE at winning the White House either.  I think the solution is 60 Republicans in the Senate.  It's doable, on the path we are on.  The media has become farce.  Flynn was innocent of all but perhaps a formality.

And in all seriousness, Trump does have a major problem on his hands, in that in our intelligence community, and with the FBI, he is dealing with some very smart people who are practiced at deception, covert operations, and political sabotage.  One idea, an odd one even for me, is employing some trustworthy psychics to figure out who the real players are, and what their agenda is.  That's almost what will be needed, although Trump is certainly no dummy, and certainly  not helpless when it comes to canning and prosecuting people.
