I don’t understand why Trump didn’t get rid of every holdover from the Obama administration. I would have fired everyone and started from scratch.
Trump’s 2016 win shook the establishment to its core. for the first time in a long time, the Democrats and Republicans are on the same side: Trump is a problem. The old and bitter John McCain is leading the opposition from within the GOP.
We’re looking at a well-orchestrated but quiet coup d’etat.
Trump’s presidency is being sabotaged from the inside and is being aided and abetted by the GOP establishment. It’s time to clean house to catch the opposition off guard.
There’s a scene from the film The Untouchables that he could take a lesson from. Al Capone is on trial for tax evasion, the only crime they could pin on him. There was a jury trial. Eliot Ness finds out that the jury is compromised. It had been bought off by Capone.
The judge, most likely also on Capone’s payroll, wants to save his career by not being exposed even though his name is not on this particular list. So he makes a split-second decision and switches the existing jury with a sitting jury in another courtroom not having anything to do with the Capone case. (It didn’t happen exactly the way it was depicted in the film, but there was a jury switch.)
