The latest controversy on the Potomac involves alleged involvement by a foreign power in America's affairs — like meddling in the recent presidential election, the White House visit by Russian representatives, sharing secrets with the enemy, suspected under-the-table payments to 45's campaign consultants, firing the FBI director who was preparing to investigate the Russian connection, etc., etc., etc.
A special counsel has finally been appointed to oversee a probe of this whole tawdry, treasonous situation. The big question is, whether this individual can manage to stay truly impartial and not give in to partisan pressures to look the other way regarding some very obvious relationships that are too significant to ignore.
"He that lies down with dogs shall rise up with fleas" is another one of my Poor Richard's sayings. It's getting harder and harder not to picture 45 cozying up to some hungry, flea-bitten canines who are just waiting to swoop in and do even more damage to our democracy.
