“What fresh hell is this?” I can hear voices asking. “What possible explanation can there be for this strange and unparalleled turn of events?”
Well, it seems pretty clear to me. Pilger is on a cleft stick. If he goes out and actually “does his f—— job,” as Tyler Durden puts it, then he’ll never be invited to another Beltway cocktail party. His Deep State reputation will be utterly ruined, replaced with the ignominy of the man who destroyed Disciple Joe’s opportunity to step into the Messiah’s sandals. If, on the other hand, he were to pull a Mueller and actively attempt to destroy or hide the evidence sprouting like kudzu in a Deep South summer, he’d end up in the Big House with the rest of the Democrats.
So he’s wisely decided to cut his losses. Now he can pose as another Andrew McCabe, the clean-cut career crime-fighter who courageously stuck with his ideals rather than bend to the demands of the Orange Cthulhu. Book deal, talk-show tour, and MSNBC position will be now forthcoming.
This is, simply put, the first piece falling off the Democratic machine. There will be many more coming as it skids more swiftly and inevitably toward the abyss.
