Some splainin’ to do

I wish the appalling Donald Trump wasn’t President of the United States. I don’t think it ever occurred to me that he would win the General Election, and in 2015 I thought no better of his primary chances.

That makes me a lot like the spooks at the FBI, which I now nevertheless think has some splainin’ to do:

The Wall Street Journal’s Kim Strassel poses those questions and her theory on the truthful answers. I’m not sure her answers cohere, but the questions finally got my attention.

And no, I’m not going to apologize to Trump loyalists for not catching on earlier. When Trump and his acolytes layer the shit on so thick every day, it’s all I can do to keep up with washing it off without worrying about whether there’s a pony in there somewhere.
