Yes. I was worried about Russia when Obama admin "resetting," & Trump's reprehensible bouquets to Putin was a big reason I opposed him in GOP primaries. Admins of both parties for 20 yrs have deluded themselves about Russia as "strategic partner" -- they're our adversary.

DOJ used to believe distinction b/w crim & C-I was critically important – fear of using former as pretext for latter was why “wall” imposed in 90s. That was overreaction, but doesn’t mean distinction unimportant. /8x

No prob if conduct counterintel, happen to find crime from which DOJ conflicted, then appoint SC. But that’s not what happened. /7

There is no a basis in regs to appoint special counsel to conduct counterintel inv – which makes sense b/c only need SC for prosecution, which is not objective of counterintel. /6

There were not grounds to believe Trump campaign conspired in a crime at time Mueller appointed. /5

I continue, for example, to be baffled by gov’t failure to seize DNC servers & to farm out forensic analysis to Dem contractor, which would harm prosecution. /3

There is no doubt that DOJ had auth to investigate Russian interference in election, without limitations (except those that always apply), and should do so. /2

A special counsel is triggered by 2 things – not just a crime but a conflict. /1

Carissa, interference happened notwithstanding sanctions already imposed due to prior Russian aggression. I'm all for sanctions, but insufficient on their own. Untriable indictment no help. Last round of sanctions was theatrical support for political collusion narrative.
