If you're joining late, Part 1 considers whether it really is likely that the anti-Trump conspirators would take the extraordinary risks they have taken simply to get Hillary Clinton elected president; or, perhaps, whether their collective panic has another explanation -- a red thread? Part 2 minutely examines Nellie H.

If you're joining late, Part 1 considers whether it is really likely that the expanding web of anti-Trump conspirators would take the extraordinary risks they have taken simply to get Hillary Clinton elected president; or, perhaps, whether their collective panic has another explanation -- a red thread? Part 2 minutely examines Nellie H. Ohr, the Russian-speaking-ham-radio-operator Fusion GPS boss Glenn Simpson tried in vain to hide from investigators, and finds a tangle of red threads; Part 3 notes that Edward Baumgartner, another Fusion GPS Russia expert, was a Russian history major at Vassar (Class of 1995) when Nellie H.

It is hard to stop gaping at the hole where a fragmentation bomb blew up inside Trumpworld this week, prompting the president, under fresh if prepackaged attack, even by his own senior former adviser, to return massive fire. 

I refer primarily to the unfiltered, reckless statements -- ravings -- that author Michael Wolff attributes to Steve Bannon in Wolff's new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. After breaking in the Guardian, these same statements were carried as a news story at Breitbart and have since gone unrefuted, also undiscussed by Steve Bannon. He has offered no reason to doubt them.
