Hey, Donald Trump: We've seen that stupid criminal move before

For a guy who watches as much TV as does 45
his no-evidence finger-pointing allegation that 44 tapped his phones - his initial hysterical, ahistorical crossed-wires jumble of words read this way -  
 Mar 4MoreTerrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism! - - 
- reminded me of a common plot line on "Dateline," or in reruns of "Forensic Files."

The main suspect, his footprints, fingerprints, surveillance images, cell phone pings, bank records, credit card receipts, insurance policies, incriminating outbursts and rock-solid positive DNA matches are all over the crime scene and case,

Nailing down his means, motive and opportunity.

So the stupid criminal, aware the walls are closing in, clumsily and amateurishly suggests an alternative and distracting theory and suspect to the seasoned investigators that only makes them look harder at the guy in the interrogation room.

It's a variation on 'the real killer is still out there,' and there's usually a moment in the show when the lead detective, assigning more investigators and overtime to the case, says of the finger-pointing - - 'that's when we knew he did it.' 

Two commercials later, the jury is back with a guilty verdict.

Meanwhile, in real life, Trump would prefer everyone be distracted from Russian influence in his election and administration, and the carnage of his first few weeks in office, from the billionaire swamp enablers he's installed in the Cabinet to the unprecedented level of swamp-dwelling influence he's approved over public policy, clean air, fresh water and traditional democracy.
