Some issues that need investigative reporting:

1. The tax returns.

2. The sexual harassment allegations.

3. The Emoluments Clause.

4. Whether the Yemen operation was timed to coincide with the immigration ban.

5. Those actually behind the vandalism at Berkeley.

I fear that the firehose IS the strategy to make the world forget about the real issues.
