4. I agree the two really aren't related

Like I said, I wouldn’t want to give up the right to appeal, even to the Supreme Court to speed things up. Real life is more complex and slower for legitimate reasons.

I can rationalize why the two are different but my mind keeps tripping over the baseball case which I don’t really care about getting to conclusion while bridge gate still not at conclusion and there being a chance the convictions will be overturned. The comment that there may not have been a crime ( phrased oppositely) stand out.

I cared about this case since it was exposed but more now since it has similarities to Ukraine in that government resources were used to punish political rivals.

I do a lot of problem solving so this type of thinking is an occupational hazard. I try to remember my speculations are just that. This one is clearly unrelated but I can’t shake that feeling of cognitive dissonance that usually tells me to keep looking.

Treat it as partly me whining about the uncertainty of punishment but also some comments on the weird connections our brains produce. I wonder if the sense of injustice makes it hard to let go of this hunch. Intellectually I know I should
