One thought:
Has anyone else pondered the probability that Putin has a lot of goods on quite a few members of Congress?
I believe it is inevitable that we will learn that Putin tapped into the communications of a large number of Congress critters, which just might explain their reluctance (errr - - outright refusal?) to move these investigations forward into a more focused criminal phase.

Certain Trump defenders have been parading terms around like "coordinated perjury" or "perjury traps" when they should be pondering things like lying to a Special Prosecutor.

I guess we'll see what crops up.
