Re: The really ridiculous part of this
The FBI doesn't have a squeaky clean rep, no one is arguing that. The whole reason this is being pushed is to give Trump a "reason" for firing Rosenstein. Then he hopes to appoint a toady in that slot - maybe this is why Trey Gowdy said he wouldn't run for re-election...perhaps Trump plans to appoint him in exchange for a promise to fire Mueller or otherwise shut down the investigation.
Trump is obviously guilty of something pretty bad for him to have such a consistent pattern of trying to obstruct justice. Must be pretty serious too, if it was just "Trump talked to the Russians about getting dirt on Hillary" his supporters wouldn't care. Probably money laundering with Russian mafia, maybe he's worried if it is exposed the source of funding will dry up and since no reputable bank will loan him a dime he'd end up bankrupt.
