President Trump calls the special investigation of his and his administration’s possible collusion with Russia — during the election and after — a “witch hunt,” and that his treatment by the press is the “worst treatment of a politician in history.” Neither is true. Of course we don’t know whether the investigations will lead to anything; but Trump, with his tweets and his own words, has put himself directly in the path of this investigation. To continue this metaphor, one wonders how many of his administration underneath him will also be brought up by the claw. How many coins will be used?
