As an aside, I first met Erick Lichtblau at the start of his career l when he was a brand new cub reporter for the Los Angeles Times doing political corruption and organized crime stories. He trained at the feet of George Frank, a reporter of great renown – truly. Eric, if you read this story, think back to your beginnings and ask yourself who you learned from and what they would think.
There’s nothing quite like going back to a place that remains unaltered (even if only in memory) to find how you have changed. That’s all that I have to say except that I expected better of you.
Robert Mueller has an opportunity to be a hero or a zero, and the jury is still out on the “foolish” Russia probe. He’s hired a lot of cronies to help him come up with a decision (which will be made by committee to defray any personal accountability for an F-up).
However, let me take a moment to point out that a screw up on Mueller’s part is a black eye on the FBI. I realize that he hasn’t been the director for a long time now, but it’s a crony operation. Despite how the corrupt, elite, lying mainstream media tries to spin it, the FBI and their already damaged reputation will own it. If he does an honest job, it may help the FBI. If he doesn’t, they’ll be diminished even further.
