Faith Hope and Thanksgiving

Submitted by ub on Mon, 11/20/2017 - 05:10

As Americans approach Thanksgiving and proceed towards Christmas, we may wish to exercise our faith in God and country with acts of charity towards those of us who are less fortunate and need random acts of kindness.

There is also a special feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen and we can all find some joy in the fact that our US democratic form of government not only allows it but provides a mechanism for an investigation of any American government official who may be accused of wrongdoing.

Let us pray that US Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller gets to the bottom of hos probe while he is interviewing White House communications Director Hope Hicks.

Ms. Hicks has worked for @realDonaldTrump for years. Initially as a fixer who got emails and communications directly to the boss, then as a senior adviser before assuming her current position.

Hope's history with @POTUS makes her a key witness for Mueller as the investigation reviews the president’s habits and mood swings. Hope Hicks is well positioned to recount Trump’s reactions at various moments as the Russia scandal sidetracked his presidency, which led to Mr. Mueller's appointment.

Lawyers want White House aides, including Hicks to finish their interviews with the special counsel before the upcoming holidays.

Mueller interviewed others including former chief of staff Reince Priebus and former press secretary Sean Spicer but neither of these individuals offers prosecutors an image of the past years that Hope Hicks could.

Wherever this investigation leads, the moment of truth draws closer and ultimately the US Constitution should lead the US from evil. Or as Hillary might say, it was deplorable hicks who got us into this mess, let us now hope Hicks leads us out of it.

Is it time to ring the division bell? Let us wait and see if her recollections also become cloudy sessions.
In the meantime, we have... High Hopes...
