Donald Trump's First 100 Days: "Lawyer: 'Appalled' by FBI warrant that shook Clinton"

The FBI warrant that shook Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign in its final two weeks has been unsealed, and the lawyer who requested it says it offers "nothing at all" to merit the agency's actions leading up to the Nov. 8 election....

"I see nothing at all in the search warrant application that would give rise to probable cause, nothing that would make anyone suspect that there was anything on the laptop beyond what the FBI had already searched and determined not to be evidence of a crime, nothing to suggest that there would be anything other than routine correspondence between" Clinton and Abedin, Schoenberg said in an email to USA TODAY. It remains unknown "why they thought they might find evidence of a crime, why they felt it necessary to inform Congress, and why they even sought this search warrant," he said. "I am appalled."

In the words of the immortal bard, "much ado about nothing."

Trump won the election but he lost the popular vote. This means that he does not have a popular mandate despite his claim that he does and the belief of 52% of Republicans polled that he does. It means that far more Americans voted against him than voted for him. His only advantage, which is his to lose, is that his party dominates Congress. He has only the qualified support of many Republican congressional leaders. That could change if he does not go along with their agenda or oversteps that agenda. Right now Trump supporters are willing to make excuses for the new president. Will they be willing two years from now? Four years from now? Trump may be their man but are they his?

Trump's response to these attacks shows how quickly he can jump to the wrong conclusions. Rather waiting to gather more facts or to get the facts straight and then issuing a measured, well-thought out statement, he impulsively says what comes immediately to mind. Trump's response is revealing not only into how Trump perceives or perhaps more accurately mis-perceives the world but also into how his thought processes work. Impulsivity, however, is not a positive trait in an occupant of the Oval Office. The wrong decision, made on impulse and without accurate or sufficient information can have disastrous consequences for the United States and the world. Trump's wealth has insulated him against the consequences of his wrong decisions in the past but it will not offer similar protection to the American people in the present or the future.
