1. If Tricky Dick had an AG like the Cover-Up General, he would have never had to resign. Here's hoping he goes the way of John Mitchell.
2. Is this a matter of Drumpf retroactively classifying previously unclassified information in order to punish Bolton? If so, it will have the desired chilling effect on upcoming tell-alls, and might even give them a backdoor way to go after Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe, since I'm guessing Durham isn't finding much.
3. Drumpf cannot legally classify something just to hide criminality, recall what an outrage it was that the evidence of the Ukraine shakedown ended up on the super-classified server? I can't wait until Dems have access to that server, imagine all the chargeable criminal acts they're going to find.
4. The timing seems strange, this book has long ago left the consciousness of the American electorate, and in comparison to others made hardly any news. This appears to be an obvious distraction from the forthcoming Woodward book which, before it even hits the shelves, has already been much more explosive. We hear Drumpf in his own voice confess: to a minimum of 100,000 counts of either Murder 2 or Manslaughter; to his undying love for autocrats especially Kim; that he was impressed with Kim's execution and beheading of his uncle; that he protected MBS from Congressional exposure; and we hear Drumpf declassifying top-secret nuclear arms information in real time. And that's just today, I'm sure Woodward will have even more explosive disclosures for us all the way though the book's release next week.
This investigation will send a certain number of people back to the Bolton book to see what they might have missed, but mostly I think it's a distraction. I'm surprised Dotard hasn't retroactively classified all conversations with between his sister and anybody else, so they could investigate Mary Trump for disclosing what a POS he is.
