It's beginning to look a lot like Fitzmas

The last two days I did some­thing I haven’t done in a long time. I kept my eye on twit­ter and was there when CNN first tweeted out that Mueller has filed charges against someone.

That CNN which is fight­ing with MSNBC to be THE anti-​Trump net­work and which appar­ently has con­nec­tions to Fusion GPS that they didn’t bother to dis­close was the recip­i­ent of this lat­est leak from Mueller’s team of Democ­rats was one of the few unsur­pris­ing things about it.

First there’s was the sur­prise of an indict­ment at all. I’m old enough to have sat through a lot of these things and I don’t recall any spe­cial coun­sel man­ag­ing an indict­ment a mere 9 months or less after being appointed.

Sec­ond of all there is the sur­prise of such an announce­ment tak­ing place of a Fri­day evening invit­ing spec­u­la­tion for days. Nor­mally a law enforce­ment mat­ter like this takes place quickly in order to keep the tar­get of such an act from being able to pre­pare who­ever the tar­get is has been given sev­eral days of not being charged to take legal mea­sures in their advan­tage. That seems odd to me.

Third of all is some­thing that I have to give Andrew Breitbart’s arch neme­sis Eric Boehlert credit for notic­ing the NYT has not touched this story at all. They didn’t touch it the day it broke

Nor have they done so as of this writ­ing: (Sun­day 9:42 am)

That the times, which is in the mid­dle of its “Trump Bump”, would leave this story alone to leave their anti-​trump audi­ence to go else­where is sim­ply amazing.

But for me the biggest sur­prise is how the left has received it. To wit Jake Tap­per put out this tweet…

…imply­ing that the rev­e­la­tions con­cern­ing Mueller and Ura­nium One were a dodge to counter this (rather than the obvi­ous con­clu­sion that this sud­den indict­ment and it’s tim­ing was all about chang­ing the sub­ject BY him). It pro­duced a series of replies from the Never Trump faith­ful that can only be described as orgas­mic. Har­vey Wein­stein wasn’t as excited in the pres­ence of women as the Twit­ter left are over this news.

I find this sur­pris­ing because we’ve seen this over and over again from the orig­i­nal Fitzmas

To the Michelle Bach­man “indict­ments” that the left kept promis­ing to elec­tion night where the entire left was ready to dance before they were disappointed.

I would have thought that elec­tion night would have taught them their lesson

But no. They are gin­ning them­selves up and the crash if noth­ing comes of it, from a not guilty ver­dict after a long trial, to a Trump Par­don (don’t think for a moment he wouldn’t do it) to the pos­si­bil­ity that no indict­ment takes place at all (not very likely but that would explain the silence of the NY times) their crash will be most amus­ing to the rest of us.

Actu­ally now that I think of it, maybe the left set­ting itself up for a fall isn’t that big a sur­prise, the real sur­prise would be them tak­ing the Ann Alt­house route.

I’ve got noth­ing to say, because it hasn’t happened

If the left thought like this, THAT would be an earth shat­ter­ing shock.

Me I’m going to see what hap­pens but I’ll tell you one thing. If you think this White House isn’t ready to win this fight, you haven’t been pay­ing atten­tion this last year.

The last two days I did something I haven’t done in a long time. I kept my eye on twitter and was there when CNN first tweeted out that Mueller has filed charges against someone.

That CNN which is fighting with MSNBC to be THE anti-Trump network and which apparently has connections to Fusion GPS that they didn’t bother to disclose was the recipient of this latest leak from Mueller’s team of Democrats was one of the few unsurprising things about it.

First there’s was the surprise of an indictment at all. I’m old enough to have sat through a lot of these things and I don’t recall any special counsel managing an indictment a mere 9 months or less after being appointed.

Second of all there is the surprise of such an announcement taking place of a Friday evening inviting speculation for days. Normally a law enforcement matter like this takes place quickly in order to keep the target of such an act from being able to prepare whoever the target is has been given several days of not being charged to take legal measures in their advantage. That seems odd to me.

Third of all is something that I have to give Andrew Breitbart’s arch nemesis Eric Boehlert credit for noticing the NYT has not touched this story at all. They didn’t touch it the day it broke

Nor have they done so as of this writing: (Sunday 9:42 am)

That the times, which is in the middle of its “Trump Bump”, would leave this story alone to leave their anti-trump audience to go elsewhere is simply amazing.

But for me the biggest surprise is how the left has received it. To wit Jake Tapper put out this tweet…

…implying that the revelations concerning Mueller and Uranium One were a dodge to counter this (rather than the obvious conclusion that this sudden indictment and it’s timing was all about changing the subject BY him). It produced a series of replies from the Never Trump faithful that can only be described as orgasmic. Harvey Weinstein wasn’t as excited in the presence of women as the Twitter left are over this news.

I find this surprising because we’ve seen this over and over again from the original Fitzmas

Actually now that I think of it, maybe the left setting itself up for a fall isn’t that big a surprise, the real surprise would be them taking the Ann Althouse route.
