1) Those wanting instant justice for many of these coupsters need to understand that despite what we "want," this is and always has been a two-part process:
*legal
*political
2) I think we have satisfied the question of whether Sessions is "on the job" & who has begun proceedings
3) We know, for example, he has a prosecutor (Huber) a grand jury in the DC area, four separate investigations into Cankles and likely a second grand jury in Little Rock to go with prosecutor Cody Hiland.

4) But I don't think the political aspect has sufficiently been addressed.
5) Weird as it may sound, since we know that these investigations have been on-going for as long as a year, how has this political angle been set up?

6) The answer is that Sessions/Horowitz have been selectively providing Congress with requested docs while cleverly holding out.
7) The result is a public show in which Congress huffs & puffs and demands more docs, DOJ drags its heels, gets all sorts of publicity for the huffing & puffing then . . .

give up the documents.

8) In the meantime, the ISSUES, the NAMES, and the STORIES become public.
9) I wouldn't say a majority of people know who Horowitz or Nunes are, but I think the % if far higher today than a year ago.

10) Today's congressional letter of a criminal referral for Cankles, Combover, etc. is CRITICAL to this type of "public education."
11) Let's say that indictments were brought without this public education process: it would be treated by all the fake news media as a "witch hunt" or "distraction."

12) But fake news, by initially seeking to ignore this stuff, did us a huge favor.
13) The public now knows names, issues, investigations. Without a public education campaign, the indictments would look 100% politicized.

14) Ironically, by supporting Mulehead's investigation, the Rs look "more" non-partisan & more balanced to average people.
15) It is almost as if Ol' sleepy Jeff was back there with his conductor's wand, directing the whole orchestra from a hidden spot in the orchestra pit.

16) Better yet, Congress, not DOJ appears to be "leading" in all these calls for investigations (despite being a year behind)
17) The left has already lost the impeachment public opinion campaign, with Trump at 50% in polls (and likely far higher). Most of the voter registration #s, the economy #s, the generic ballot #s have swung heavily in the Rs direction.
18) Retirements of never-Trumpers like Dent or milquetoast Rs like Ru Paul are opening the door for more aggressive Rs like Goodlatte, Jordan, Nunes, Gohmert, and others to speak up.

19) It is highly likely now that when the indictments come the public will be favorably disposed
20) JUSTICE FOR ALL will be the cry!
