Principle for their assault on the President.
This article on chess and how it is applied politically fascinates me. (Although I take issue with the author’s support of the Dems and their railing against Trump.) But the author’s details about chess were interesting. The analogy is one I find spot on.
As it is true the Dems are indeed using a windmill assault as done in chess, against the “king.” Who in this case happens to be Trump. Of course, Trump needs to simply say, “Stop!”(Something a king cannot do in the real game of chess.)
After all, it has been almost two years of this behavior. And yet so far nothing the Dems have accomplished should allow them to continue their “investigation” — due to the fact that their justification is on such flimsy legal grounds. Their only accomplishments have been the most venal and petty ones – the Mueller probe almost destroying Michael Caputo, the bankruptcy the investigation almost pushed Gen Mike Flynn into, and his indictment over a “lie,” and of course Paul Manaforte. And as it has been pointed out, the Podesta Bros never registered as foreign agents – so if Manaforte is guilty of that, it stands to reason someone should have indicted the Podestas as well.
Now this is their legal argument, the sole argument for the continuing of the investigation: “We need to keep the Mueller investigation on going even though the only reason we were allowed the investigation in the first place was because we lied and said there was evidence.” A first year law student sees through the error of this concept.
Of course now that Trump has Giuliani in on the game, he won’t be encouraged to play the role of the king and say “Stop.” As Giuliani is probably there to see to it that Trump testifies before Mueller or Mueller’s people.
I know it is possible my view of Giuliani is not accepted by some here. But I see him as the sort of Power Broker that Di Feinstein is – playing both sides against each other as long as there is a payoff for such activities during and after the twisted but astute political maneuvering. (Of course, I do hope I am wrong about Giuliani.)
