This is a brilliant piece on the politicization especially of the unelected bureaucrats. It goes into the Watergate scandal and how it was prosecuted - with obvious parallels to the Russian Collusion narrative. Enjoy!

    Professor Marini nailed it! I felt all this Mueller business was wrong but I didn't know why until he states 'we didn't elect those people!' Wow. Impressive.

    "To paraphrase Clausewitz, scandal provides the occasion for politics by other means."

    Another quote attributed to Clausewitz: "War is politics continued by other means."

    Great analysis.

    "The most notable difference between this scandal and Watergate is that President Trump has so far succeeded—largely through his relentless characterization of most of those in the media as dishonest partisans rather than objective reporters—in preventing the scandals surrounding him from being defined, by his enemies, in legal rather than political terms. "

    Yes. And that is why the bureaucrats hate him will all their might. They have a president who is not willing to accept the status quo as defined by the left, and fights back where it hurts the most.

    Keep going Mr President!
