NYT Editorial Board: All the President's Crooks [View all]


"On Tuesday afternoon, the American public was treated to an astonishing split-screen moment involving two of those people, as Mr. Trumpís former campaign chief was convicted by a federal jury in Virginia of multiple crimes carrying years in prison at the same time that his longtime personal lawyer pleaded guilty in federal court in New York to his own lengthy trail of criminality, and confessed that he had committed at least some of the crimes ďat the direction ofĒ Mr. Trump himself.
Let that sink in: Mr. Trumpís own lawyer has now accused him, under oath, of committing a felony.

As Mr. Trump rages on about the unfairness of the investigation, remember that Mr. Mueller has been on the job for just 15 months. For comparison, the Watergate investigation ran for more than two years before it brought down a president and sent dozens of people to prison. The Iran contra investigation dragged on for about seven years, as did the Whitewater investigation, which resulted in President Bill Clintonís impeachment.

Also remember we still donít know anything about the ultimate fate of several other Trump associates who have been under Mr. Muellerís microscope, including Roger Stone, Carter Page and Donald Trump Jr. (ďIf itís what you say I love it especially later in the summerĒ).

For a witch hunt, Mr. Muellerís investigation has already bagged a remarkable number of witches. Only the best witches, you might say."

Love the headline
