I don't know whether or not Donald Trump colluded with the Russians around the election--or whether any of his associates did either.
I certainly don't think much of him--and it certainly doesn't seem beyond him, but obviously I don't have all the materials and information I need.
But what I do know is that anyone who is sure of their innocence wouldn't fire the very person investigating them IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INVESTIGATION. Can anyone logically imagine an innocent person thinking, "I know I didn't do anything, but instead of waiting until I'm cleared, I'm going to get rid of the main person I need to vouch for my innocence and that of my staff."
It's completely unconscionable--and any other politician who doesn't denounce it isn't representing their constituency well. It wreaks of the kind of abuse of power that ultimately sent Nixon packing--and the fact that Trump and his staff either don't see that or don't care is deeply deeply troubling.
There have been many days this year where I sit here and say, "Should I be doing my job or raising hell today?"
Today, it is clear what we all should be doing. This is a fork in the road we cannot afford to go down.
