It's not cynicism to tell the truth. Sundance 'splains why Trump won (both times) and why Trump remains utterly despised by D.C.
...Well, first having sat in a room with the legislative staff, top people who actually write the briefs and inform both congressional representatives on House Committees and Senate Committees, including the chiefs-of-staff for the chairs, it was clear they did not even know the information from within their own research when spread over time. Accepting this reality leads one to a natural conclusion… they don’t know, because they choose not to know… & they choose not to know, because everything is a pantomime for public display....
Trump came in and pantsed the bastards.
They don't like that.
...The system of DC is based on a series of unwritten rules… “You don’t out me, and I will not out you… and that will protect us both.” These rules cross over both parties to the extent they usually have a common enemy, us. The staff of Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, Homeland Security Chair Ron Johnson and even the staff of House Oversight Ranking Member Jim Jordan are purposefully and willfully blind.
They choose not to know things; or at least they claim not to know and do an exceptional job of purposeful pretend.
The investigative information that makes up the news cycles amid the investigative right-side of the spectrum is generally compartmented or silo’ed. Within DC all branches and people within them keep information isolated from each-other in order to create and retain plausible deniability. This permits their leadership to talk a good game on television while nothing is actually accomplished.
It is all part of the game.
They shuffle the shells but there is no pea....
To his credit, RoJo is exposing SOME of the rot--which is why grifter-carpetbaggers like Lasry are willing to spend hundreds of millions to defeat him.
But we know RoJo's keeping a lot under his hat, especially about China-Dog McConnell.
