Let me say at the outset that I am saying nothing one way or the other about the particular circumstances concerning the murder of Seth Rich—other than the obvious fishiness of the thing. I don’t know anywhere near enough to talk about the case itself in any detail. But we do know that Julian Assange hinted that Rich was a source, one investigator has claimed that there is proof that Rich sent northwards of 40,000 emails to Wikileaks, and we know that Rich was shot down in the streets of Washington D.C. by assailant/s unknown. Turning to another channel, we also know that Hillary blamed her spectacular loss on Trumpian collusion with Russia. That’s her story and she’s sticking to it. Three guesses which one got the special counsel working on the case.
So what I am in a position to comment on is the disparity of behavior on what it takes to get a special counsel appointed. What does it take to get something investigated in that town?
But the upside is that Mueller, being a cracker-jack lawman, solemnly appointed to investigate the Russian deal, might have an idea in the shower one morning. “Hey! Maybe Seth Rich was Russia! Maybe we should send some men over that way . . .”
You will know this has happened if a New York Times editorial starts lamenting our renegade special prosecutor. And if Mueller has an accident in the shower the next morning, you may consider this post a total fluke. I don’t think anything of the kind.
