"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Apres vous, le deluge

Helter skelter.  Look out, 'cause here it comes:

This one really smells:

It is, to put it mildly, extremely uncharacteristic of the Trump administration to take a stand on behalf of the opponent the president still occasionally calls “Crooked Hillary.” While there’s no other issue mentioned in Rosenstein’s memo, the FBI also has an ongoing investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Comey confirmed the existence of such an investigation in March. The Trump administration has been extremely eager to dispel any hint of wrongdoing or collusion. In President Trump’s letter firing Comey, he says he appreciates Comey telling him “on three separate occasions” that Trump himself is not under investigation; that reference could be a stray bit of Trumpian humor, or a hint that Comey ran afoul of the president for reasons that have nothing to do with Hillary Clinton.
