Stop blaming investigators more than criminals for Trump’s woes

There’s simply not a realistic scenario where those facts don’t trigger inquires, and the instant the investigation began — given the quality of the people around Trump — it was inevitable that it would crack open corruption, including potentially corruption on the part of the candidate himself.

I’m certainly open to the possibility that aspects of the original FBI investigation against Trump were problematic. And if an appropriate investigation of the investigators reveals real wrongdoing, then those responsible should be punished. But I’m having a hard time believing — on a week where the tally of former Trump officials who are guilty of crimes has grown to now include his former campaign chair, deputy campaign chair, national security adviser, and personal lawyer — that I should be outraged at law enforcement and not the criminals who’ve flouted American laws.
