I'm a little upset

    If it's true that they're rarely denied then perhaps it's because everyone involved knows that you have to have good evidence - don't even ask unless you've got good evidence. In any case, you really don't know that's true because if a warrant is denied you'd never hear about it. Never.

    Like we didn't hear about the one granted? That kind of "never"?

    Are you using a crystal ball?

    Who is complaining about there not being leaks? What I'm criticizing is the tendency to confuse passionate desire with fact. People don't like Trump, so they conclude he must be guilty of some crime. Despite no crime being specified. (That's the Kafka parallel.) Just because they want him to be guilty.

    There must be Something! We'll find it if only we dig deeply enough. That's why the quote attributed to Beria (Stalin's secret police chief) is so apt: "Show me the man, I'll find you the crime".

    You've criticized Me Again for his (annoying) tendency to write about his hopes for the future as if they were fact. Now you're doing the same thing.

    According to Judge Napolitano yesterday on Fox Business, for some of the time that his communications were being intercepted, he was living in Trump Tower. Presumably the time he was working for Trump's campaign.

    Trump Tower, a residence of choice for international scoundrels. Wasn't it also location of Yaponchik's (Russian Mafia boss) money laundering operation?

    A crystal ball is not required to know that the investigation will run it's course and there will be some result. It's really just common sense.

    I don't mind saying that I have made an assumption that somebody is going to be found guilty of something. In my mind it's the whole, "where there's smoke there's fire," thing. I'm guessing that Manafort is going to be indicted as will Flynn. Will it extend beyond those two? Will there be trials? Will there be pardons? I think it's possible that the answer to all those questions is yes. If the answer is no, however, I'm not going to complain . . . much.

    Let me expand this:

    "One can craft incriminating evidence from a ham sandwich" - anyone
