[241] No Collusion

[241] No Collusion

We now have the Mueller verdict.  Trump and his minions did not collude with the Russians in the 2016 election.

We now face the other side of this two-plus national agony—all the nefarious (and likely illegal) shenanigans of Trump haters among the Deep State that appear to have propelled the investigation in the first place.

Whether or not you feel another investigation of possible wrongdoing among the Deep Staters should be launched, an important question looms.

What is in the best interests of the nation?

Clearly justice is a pre-eminent concern.  From that angle, a “bring-in-the-fuzz” careful examination of Trump-negative manipulation is in order, with the culprits exposed and punished.

But there is another very practical concern.  An institution (and that includes a republic) can take only so much boat-rocking before it comes loose from its moorings.  Vicious polarization generates zero credibility for each side in a time in which we need to establish trust and rapport.

We are faced with a dilemma as ancient as the scriptures—justice vs. mercy, or perhaps grace.  In this instance, however, how we respond may have reverberating effects on the future health of our nation. DC
