MSNBC law analyst Benjamin Wittes, probably best known on Twitter for his “BOOM!” tweets accompanied by a video of his tiny cannon shooting off a round whenever there was a new “bombshell” in the Russian collusion investigation, has a question.

Correction: She is a criminal.

It’s not such a difficult question to answer.
