Trump is generating a lot of heat but no light.

Nor is it a bad thing to call out political prosecutions and investigations (Trump's hasn't been entirely political, but Menendez, McDonnell, and Bernie's wife have recently faced silly political witch hunts, and many others will continue to do so).
The investigation of Trump has been the opposite of political. Thanks particularly to Mitch McConnell, it was downplayed initially because of politics (HRC got the opposite). You now have the Republican #2 at the DOJ overseeing a Republican prosecutor. Any politics have been injected by Trump and congressional Republicans.
