11. Kinda important dontcha think?

This fills in another piece of the picture of the Trump campaign meeting with the Russians about something.

Were they meeting about influencing (or outright hacking our vulnerable electronic voting computers) the then upcoming election? Were they discussing illegal campaign contributions? Were they talking about a quid pro quo on both the Ukraine and the sanctions?

These are just some of the questions.

While this is coming out (finally)...the rumors are swirling that Trump is considering firing Mueller (would that finally rise to obstruction of justice enough to satisfy Turley, Dershowitz, and other legal TV pundits?).

Another Saturday Night massacre (that most likely won't happen on Saturday).

Marx famously said that history repeats...first as tragedy...then as farce (a rough paraphrase at best). We saw the tragedy in 1973 in which we had real larger-than-life villains and heroes. Now the farce.

An evil idiot clown President with a strangely orange face and a bouffant hairdo, an elfin gibbering and capering attorney general already so obviously corrupt that he has had to remove himself from the drama (or did he really?), and a small deputy who has a reputation for probity and honor who has already failed the first large test.

We, the citizens (the ones paying attention), are now on the edge of our seats. We don't know how this cliff hanger is going to come out.

The sense that I'm again watching moments of pivotal history is like a smothering, heavy cloud that is with me even when I sleep.

This madness will not go on forever, but it will seem to. What we don't know is whether anything will remain of our system of government when it does end.
