Meanwhile, over in the National Review, Andrew McCarthy delves into the necessity of there being serious criminal - not civil - charges before a step like raiding the President's lawyer's office would ever be taken by the prosecutors of the Southern District of New York.  Where he worked as one of those prosecutors for two decades.

Popcorn is always good but this next batch might be extra-tasty.
