If they can fill in the dots

Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin was being interviewed by Rachel Maddow on her show (1/6/22). Goodwin was discussing the January 6 attempt to usurp the election results by violent means on the United States Capitol, and is hoping that the House Select Committee will obtain the facts that will educate the American people on what happened that day. Here is the transcript: https://www.msnbc.com/transcripts/transcript-rachel-maddow-show-1-6-22-n1287472

This is a congruent conflation of “connect the dots” and “fill in the blanks”, both meaning to understand something by providing information. A tip of the hat to Mike Kovacs for hearing this one and passing it on.
