Assuming we survive, we will be astounded when we look back on these times.

I was listening to the latest episode of Lawfare, in which Benjamin Wittes and his guests are talking about the just-announced plea agreement between the Robert Mueller’s office and Michael Cohen.

During the episode, the conversation turns to whether this will be the point at which the investigation finally turns the corner.

I don’t know the answer to that question, but I do think that when we reach that point and the blocks start to tumble—either with the office of the Special Counsel or with the Trump administration—they are going to fall quickly and spectacularly.
