For John, BLUF: The thing is, if you can't convince the vast majority of the US public that you played fair, then the nation will be badly divided, and perhaps for a long time. Think l'affaire Dreyfus. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Sentinel (Kansas and Missouri), 8 April 2018.
From a cut line:
The St. Louis Circuit Attorney has contrived a case against Gov. Greitens that Lewis Carroll would have been hard pressed to imagine.There is winning at all cost and their is playing fair. Which one do you think State and Federal Prosecutors think is the the way to play the game?
The reason it matters is because we are right now playing you bet your presidency. And by "your" I don't mean Donald Trump. I mean the American voter.
