Fire the Investigator

It’s been awhile. Home renovations, conventions, and other assorted things I will not mention here have taken up much of my time over the past couple of months so I haven’t been able to post anything.

But I’m back! I don’t know if the comic will be weekly from here on out but it will post more regularly.

As for the topic at hand, this is mind-blowing. I don’t know if collusion occurred between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. I’d like to think it didn’t happen – the thought that someone could be that evil and stupid is somewhat beyond me – but either way, the process needs to play out. No matter how you examine the situation, firing the person who is investigating you is horrible, even if you’re innocent. Especially if you’re innocent. When that investigator happens to be the guy who helped usher you into the White House by investigating your opponent, matters only become more complicated. When your own attorney general – a man who recused himself from the investigation due to personal involvement with Russian officials – the situation enters clusterfuck status.

This is bad. This is very, very bad. We should all be outraged. It doesn’t matter if you believe the guy is innocent or guilty, the process has been tainted. This isn’t a partisan game. It doesn’t matter if your team “wins” or “loses”. This is about the sanctity of our government’s laws and institutions and the 350 million Americans who live under those laws.
