#1 ....a month before the initial FISA application to surveil the Trump campaign -- that Steele was "desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being the U.S. President."

But that was his (Steele's) JOB! Never mind that fact he was a non-US person, foreign source.... with obvious connections to a foreign intelligence service.

Heads to roll? I would wager few if any.

#2 Besoeker, sadly, I think you're right. Very few people, if any, will actually go to jail over this.

#3 No heads will roll.

These sort of purges can be done early on in a Presidency, but the longer you leave it, the harder it becomes.

Trump chose to make nice with the swamp early on, and this is his reward.

#5 Trump didn't expect to be elected. If he had, his transition team could have looked at how poorly Boosh was served by beltway lifers and acted accordingly right after inauguration.

#6 All the nonsense about "years of experience" and "dedicated public servant" should always be a red flag...

#7 The article is pure tripe, but look at how, with access to all intelligence product in the US, the outgoing deputy DNI could not absorb any information on how to dress or eat...

#8 It's taken too long to roll out. Nobody watches this story anymore.

#9 The ball is in Barr and Durham's court. How much do you trust Barr and Durham to do the right thing? The right thing to do is to prosecute the crimes regardless of who the person is.

#10 Barr and Durham are far enough along that it comes down to this: Has the retirement clock hit the point where a Trump loss in 2020 would hurt them or not.

I'm not so sure about the first part. Losing hugely doesn't sound like the Trump we know. Sure, all the smart kids said he was going to get his ass kicked, but they were blinded by their aversion to the man, IMAO.

Trump *did* have a problem getting people to work for him. People who normally would have stepped up to be part of the new administration bailed. (Boris Johnson is experiencing the same thing now in the UK). And as we have seen, a whole bunch of people who did stay decided to work actively against the new president. I'm sure this has happened before, but never on this scale where we have deep staters trying to run a coup. Pity that hanging has gone out of fashion.
