One wonders why none of the president’s ex-men bothered to do anything about their revelation that Trump is unfit for office,
IMO, they are trying to minimize his impact within and limit the damage.
The problem is - we have never removed a sitting president for incompetence. Even Andrew Johnson wasn’t removed from office. With McConnell and the rest of the Republican Senate in lock-step, they knew there was no way he was going to be removed from office. Incompetence and out of his depths aren’t necessarily impeachable offenses. Leaks and bad mouthing within would be countered by “the deep state is against him” and those people removed from their positions.
I do think going public with this earlier would mean that the rest of the world, with out a doubt, would see the US as super weak - harming us even further. Yes, yes, Putin already knows he’s a fool, but does everyone out there know to what extent?
Going public NOW? I think these stories combined with the Corona Virus policies shows how incompetent he is. Memories when voting are super short, and a flood of stories like this will hopefully make the far left hold their nose and vote for Biden, the far right stay home or write in the Ghost of Ronald Reagan, and the rest hopefully overcome apathy and vote him out.
