You read it here

I think I know what they're doing.

See, Robert Mueller is nothing if not meticulous.  He knows he needs an airtight, waterproof case to bring down the Big Criminal.  So Trump and Giuliani (who couldn't possibly be as stupid as he acts) have a plan:  Trump will keep committing fresh crimes and Mueller will never be able to write his final report.

This week it's witness intimidation -- threatening Michael Cohen's father-in-law with being some sort of Ukrainian mafioso, causing Cohen to back out of his scheduled appearance before the House.

Next week, who knows?  Fabricating some kind of Gulf of Tonkin episode to involve the US in Venezuela's civil war?  Busting Paul Manafort out of jail?  The long-promised slaughter on Fifth Avenue?  When Fox "News" announced the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg I got a queasy feeling.

It ain't over till it's over.

Your theory of eternal postponement of a conclusion is not so farfetched as one might guess. Back in the 1980s, I followed the case of a serial rapist (violent) who kept hiring and firing his lawyers. Each time he got a new lawyer, the lawyer would go to court and get a trial postponement on the grounds that he needed time to familiarize himself with the case. Or growling list of cases.

This went on for about two years, but the good news is, the ruse works for only so long. The rapist in question was finally tried, found guilty, and sentenced to 20 years in the slammer. I'm not sure how much of this time he actually served, but I recently found his name and face on a list of New Jersey sex offenders, and he's looking very gray these days — complexion as well as hair. So there is hope for those of us who hope eventually to see a less orange Donald Trump.

Sorry, that should be growing — not growling — list of cases. Where the hell is auto-correct when I need it?
