6. Who's the only person Trump is desperately trying to force to resign?

Who's the only one who's resignation would actually help Trump?

Hint: It's not Dan Coats.

There's only one person in the cabinet who has a legitimate reason for staying in his post because resigning would be worse than staying.

10. But if you read Sessions' writings,

This is NOT his style. It doesn't read like him.

11. It would not be a smart move to write in his normal voice, would it?

And this entire cabinet has a history of writing in other people's styles to draw suspicion away from them.

16. Sessions doesn't work IN the White House.

He's over at Justice and their down the road at 950. And I doubt he'd be snatching papers off the Resolute Desk. Without being seen.

20. I think Coats is the "I," but it was essentially written by him and several others.

Coats is the one willing to fall on the sword if it comes to that (because this will be his last job). He and the others, of course, think they're doing something heroic. In reality, they're all cowards. And they're all assholes who actually think deregulation, tax cuts for the wealthy, the military industrial complex, and so on, are positives.
