19. It relates to

my previous answer on here, having to do with timing. Let's think of another model to illustrate this. In a good boxing match, even the best-conditioned fighter -- let's say Floyd Mayweather, Jr. -- fights his hardest for three minutes of every round. Rather, he exerts his energy patiently, when it to his advantage. He breaks his opponent down carefully in a manner that frustrates and tires the opponent. As his opponent tires, the champion begins to apply more pressure, with spurts of high energy. In doing so, he creates openings to inflict damage. This leads to victory.

Mr. Mueller has been engaging with the Trump machine in much the same way, has he not? Every so often, at the time of his choice, he inflicts some damage. The timing, while not as fast as we want, is outstanding. Keep in mind that his team isn't only prosecutors .there are lots of investigators. And the prosecutors and investigators are engaged in an on-going process, at the pace they pick.

The Cohen bit this week indicates that Mr. Mueller is picking up the pace in terms of connecting the Moscow tower project, and the Russian hacking etc. This was a very large piece of the puzzle that Mr. Mueller laid down this week. I was as surprised as I was glad. Each piece of the puzzle provides a better picture of where he is going. So, by March, a great deal more will be made public. And so much more by June.

I should add that the Democratic House leadership, led by Nancy Pelosi, is doing a heck of a lot more in preparation for committee hearings than is publicly reported. I'm very impressed with that. We are in a very good spot now, because of the Mueller investigation and the Democratic leadership in the House.

Finally, I liked that on CNN, that Jeffrey Toobin said that until this week's events, he was certain Trump would last until the 2020 election .but now he believes Trump won't survive this term. Mr. Toobin is someone I listen closely to.
