Several recent developments will be interesting to follow in the mainstream media. It’s their turn to squirm now. An article in the New York Post says that a special counsel may “probe Team Obama’s obstruction of justice.”
Whether or not an investigator is appointed, Congress itself intends to investigate former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and her potential obstruction of justice and politicization of the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server.

Representative Devin Nunes is now going to have a closed door session with FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers, as the House Intelligence Committee looks into “topics” that include whether the Obama administration used the guise of “legally authorized top-secret surveillance of foreign targets” to spy on the Trump transition team and spread throughout the government, far and wide, “unmasked” information concerning what the Trump team was doing and to whom they were talking between the November election and Trump’s inauguration.

While in France, receiving a César d’Honneur (apparently a French Oscar “equivalent”), actor George Clooney gave what Yahoo! describes as an “Anti-Trump speech.” On foreign soil, no less. Such patriotism!
In January of 2016, when Hillary Clinton was a private citizen, persons in her presidential campaign coordinated with a group of people, one of whom was in contact with the Chinese ambassador, who wanted
to have an informal, private, off the record get together with a few of us to discuss the next year and the current state of US-China affairs. He asked me to host a social meal at my house in the next month. He was fairly insistent and indicated that he wanted to pass along some perspectives. [emphasis added to quotes]

Three days from now, Donald J. Trump will have been sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. The best news of the week is illustrated above, in an image courtesy of Bruce Leshan. Those are the vans moving the Obamas into their new house and out of our house.

One by one, they fall to the pressure of group-think and political correctness. “Artist” by artist, they refuse to participate after being honored with a request, or they rudely back out of performing at President-elect Donald J. Trump’s Inauguration celebration, bowing to pressure from the intolerant among us. The latest to wimp out is Jennifer Holliday.
