    I'm not that enthused. I think they're looking for cover with the voters that will be incensed from their efforts to take down Trump, a member of their own party.

    There was no real urgency, but now suddenly they need to look into this stuff?

    Perhaps they could appoint St Jude?

    The idea that Russia was trying to help Trump win kinda goes out the window.

    Nah. It might look like that from the other side of the planet, but only because of news filters. While I'm no better at predicting the future than any other mortal, I'd bet a lot that Ms. Clinton's career in politics (at least running for elected office) is completely over. (Bernie Sanders, OTOH, appears to be developing a bit of a Messiah complex, and may give it another try.) There's plenty of talent on the bench that can come out now.

    It was always on the cards that, when thing started to look really grim for Trump's administration, they would go back to attacking Hillary and Comey. It's all deflection, smoke and mirrors.

    I wonder if Al Gore's new movie will elevate his status for another run. One could see how his Environmental activism could appeal to many of the Bernie followers, especially if paired with promises to deliver a bill on Universal Health Care.

    It would be a mistake IMO to once more go to the past for leaders rather than choose a definitively "new" generation. But Gore's got name recognition, for all that he's also got baggage. I could see the DNC defaulting to Gore, and replicating the Hillary Clinton loss meme.

    While the unmaskers and leakers were working in hiliary's favor, they were Obama's aides.
