Sherlock captured the reader's imagination. In every story he solved a baffling crime with the help of his friend and ally Dr. Watson.
I'm baffled, so I traveled to 221b Baker Street to seek his help. When I got there, he just waved me to a seat and said, "I know why you're here. I know all about the Church of the Holy Moly."
That got my attention. He went on, "I know you want to know why Trump cannot say anything negative or even neutral about Vladimir Putin."What can I say? Holmes was spot on. I just sat there and listened. It was reminiscent of my first day in kindergarten.
Sherlock told me I was going about this from the wrong direction. He said, "You are looking for clues rather than seeing the obvious."
A short time later I left Holmes. He told me what I wanted to know and I am going to share that with you now. Please be seated.
So lets go over the list: Trump is a world class liar; a Narcissist; a sociopath; a criminal; a failure; a money launderer; a racketeer; a woman abuser; a racist; a homophobe; an opportunist; a two bit punk; an idiot; a xenophobe; a jerk; and he's suffering from a neurological disorder. Did I omit something?
So what? Trump is the consummate asshole. The only thing consistent about him is he won't risk offending Vlad. Why you ask? Because Putin has something on him that Donny fears more than anything - more than losing money - more than looking like a fool - more than anything period.
Putin has a video of Donald doing something that cannot be talked away or glossed over or forgiven. Remember the Steele Dossier ? Remember the talk of a pee-pee video?
Well what if the video referred to something else - Jeffrey Epstein for instance? You know Jeff right? Hmmm.
What if it had to do with that lawsuit against Trump that mysteriously disappeared right before the election last year? The one in which he was accused of raping a 13 year old girl some 20 years ago with his friend Jeffrey Epstein.
What if it was a tape of Trump raping a child - any child? That changes things doesn't it? That might be the one thing that will cause the majority of Trump supporters to flee from him as fast as they can.
Back to my conversation with Holmes. Forget the details. What would frighten Trump to his core? Look at the forest, not the trees. Go ahead, make a list. See what you get. When you're done, tell me what on your list trumps pedophilia.
Now take it just one step further. Assume Putin has a tape of whatever with whoever. Remember Putin is a criminal and a murderer. He heads up a vast criminal enterprise. He has highly trained killers at his disposal. If he got wind of a tape such as this, how hard would it be for him to track it down and just take it? Who's gonna refuse him?
Hell, maybe Putin just made his own tapes of Donny when he was in Moscow at the Miss Universe contest. Hey, remember when Trump boasted to Billy Bush about how he just walked into a dressing room filled with naked teenagers at the Miss USA pageant and how he just walks up to women and grabs them by the pussy?
I digress. Ex-KGB Chief Oleg Erovinkin was found dead in his car earlier this year. Oleg was believed to have helped Christopher Steele with his dossier. Read the story.
Remember how angry Trump was over any mention of the Steele dossier? Remember how he accused our intelligence agencies of using "NAZI practices" in regard to this on 1/11/17?
You know it was John McCain who obtained the Steele dossier and passed it on to FBI Director Comey.
Remember how Trump fired Comey after Comey refused to pledge his loyalty to him?
Now Trump is freaking out over Sessions recusing himself in regard to the Russia investigation. That was months ago. Trump's got a team working now to discredit Mueller. He's referring to the Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt".
All the while Mueller just keeps hiring seasoned prosecutors and pushing his investigation.
Is it just me or does Mueller look like that first drawing of Sherlock Holmes? No matter.
If Mueller is as good as his reputation and if he has the best intelligence agencies in the world working with him and his top notch staff, what are the chances of him having stumbled on the "tape".
Sherlock, er Mueller would know immediately that this is what Putin has been holding over Trump the whole time? If Mueller has the "tape", Trump's goose is cooked.
