As I predicted in 2016, Trump had no understanding of Washington and no idea of who to appoint.
As I also predicted, Trump was staffed by the Establishment with an Establishment government. Trump thought, based on his experience as boss, that the boss was the boss, but as I learned from my quarter century in Washington that is not the way Washington works.
Trump’s Establishment government has destroyed Trump, first by permitting the Russiagate hoax and refusing to hold the perpetuators—who clearly committed federal felonies— accountable. No indictments for the obvious felony of misleading the FISA Court, for example, have been forthcoming from the DOJ Establishment figures of Barr and Durham.
