ANALYSIS/OPINION:

A lot of folks are calling for “evidence” of the Trump Tower wiretaps. You don’t start an investigation with evidence. That’s what the investigation develops. You start with indications and develop the evidence or lack thereof. However, regardless of what the investigation unearths, President Trump’s tactic and timing were brilliant.

Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions was under assault by Democrats. He had already recused himself from any investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and then he was pressed into recusing himself from any investigation into the Russian hacking and the Trump campaign involvement. Democrats were on a roll. As a “swamp rat” who worked 40 years for the Department of Defense, I can say that I have seen this type of momentum roll over many public figures. Mr. Sessions may well have been pushed to resign or at least dragged back up before Al Franken and the rest to be publicly pummeled. All that vanished with the tweet about Trump Tower being wiretapped. The pack of wild dogs dropped the Sessions bone and took off after the wiretap bone. Brilliant, simply brilliant. Should the president apologize? Nah. He should be prepping another tweet in case Supreme Counrt nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch runs into trouble.
