Former CIA spooks, a veritable mountain of missing data, and false allegations have all played a role in this political intrigue.

Gibson Guitars should be smiling today.

For one thing, news broke that President Donald Trump is discontinuing a shady policy the Department of Justice applied in dealing with US businesses.

What’s interesting is the lack of focus on a high profile case of obstruction of justice.  Continue reading
