Larry Beinhart's Body Politic: Is There a There There?

Why do all the people around Trump get agitated whenever the word "Russia" pops up? Commentators are baffled. What's there to hide? They ask: "Is there any there there?" In real journalism, you can't deduce what's inside the black box of the White House. An insider has to speak or a paper must be leaked. Yet in physics, chemistry, and biology it's quite normal not to have testimony from inside. Scientists look at what's going in and what comes out, then make up a story about what's happening unseen. If it sounds good, it's treated as the truth until some new facts are observed that don't fit.
