Force Ten From Navaronne is an old 1961 WW II movie about a group or soldiers, including Harrison Ford and Robert Shaw, who are sent to Yugoslavia to blow up a bridge. The munitions expert of the team, Edward Fox, determines that although the bridge is too firmly rooted in the gorge it spans to be blown up, it can be destroyed by a flood of water from a reservoir upstream if the dam creating the reservoir is destroyed. Ford and Shaw sneak into the interior of the huge dam and plant explosives where Fox tells them to, but at first nothing seems to happen. Downstream, Fox and Carl Foreman, another member of the team, are waiting, and when the dam does not disintegrate, Foreman yells at Fox that he has bungled the job. But Fox, who understands these things, counsels patience. Finally, a tiny crack appears in the face of the dam and some water trickles through. Then, with excruciating slowness, more cracks appear as the enormous water pressure behind the dam starts to do its work. Eventually the entire dam collapses and the bridge is destroyed.
That is what this Russia/Trump story is beginning to resemble. To those of us impatient for a flood of revelations that washes away the Trump presidency, we must take heart from Edward Fox.
