Best analogy I've seen so far

OK, I'm a sci-fi geek, so that might explain why I find this quote relevant to today's headlines:

Astronomers can't see black holes directly. They map them by their event horizon and their effect on nearby stars and stellar matter. We can't see yet what's at the center of the Trump/Russia black hole. But we can tell a lot about its magnitude by the scope of the event horizon and the degree of its gravitational pull, which is immense.

2. I would add to Moyers' question:

One cannot hide nothing because there is literally nothing to hide. So the attempt at deflection and evasion confirms that there is something worth hiding.
