The Schleswig-Holstein Question
Clarice Feldman's "Clarice's Pieces" column , Why Is the Mueller Investigation like the Schleswig-Holstein Question? begins with this humorous observation:
"I’ve been muddling through the week’s events respecting the special counsel’s activities, trying to provide a clearer road map. And even harder -- trying to do it in a way that doesn’t make it seem more complicated than need be. A friend reminded me of Lord Palmerston’s observation: “The Schleswig-Holstein question is so complicated, only three men in Europe have ever understood it. One was Prince Albert, who is dead. The second was a German professor who became mad. I am the third and I have forgotten all about it.”
Fortunately Feldman kindly breaks down the Mueller investigation into easily digestible chunks for us to read on this extra long Sunday.
