To be effective, a government has to be credible. To be effective the Trump administration is desperately in need of a process that will both give in a breather in the short term, and credible proof of innocence in the long term about the whole Russia thing.
So they should be out there leading the establishment of such a process on investigation into the Russian scandal. It would have to be set up so its product would be so solid and so credible that it was essentially unanswerable.
So why are they not doing so. Well, there are three possible reasons.
- That they are so short term oriented that they do not understand this truth about credibiity.
- That they are in such chaos that they are unable to put any investigation together.
- That they are so guilty that the last thing they want is an investigation of any kind.
I will go with number three. But if number two is true, we should see the investigation set up in a few weeks. If number one is the reason, then it may take a bit longer, but wiser heads should prevail relatively soon.
Or perhaps most likely, all three could be true, in which case this story will play out much faster than we expect.
