Dear Mr. Dunham, Let's make your job really easy. Best, Retiring Guy

There wouldn't have been an inquiry in the first place if it hadn't been for this amoral and arrogant also-ran.

Barr Assigns U.S. Attorney in Connecticut to Review Origins of Russia Inquiry.  (The New York Times, 5/13/2019)
His [Attorney General William Barr's] use of the term “spying” to describe court-authorized surveillance aimed at understanding a foreign government’s interference in the election touched off criticism that he was echoing politically charged accusations by Mr. Trump and his Republican allies that the F.B.I. unfairly targeted the Trump campaign. 
Last week, the F.B.I. director, Christopher A. Wray, defended the bureau, saying he was unaware of any illegal surveillance and refused to call agents’ work “spying.” Former F.B.I. and Justice Department officials have defended the genesis of the investigation, saying it was properly predicated.
