The strategy seems to be the Wait and Switch version of the venerable bait and switch con game. In Washington, time heals all sins. If say the issue is divesting from conflicts of interest and you can’t or you choose not to divest then the only alternative is to wait until the issue is subsumed by ensuing issues and hidden away by layers of forgetfulness and lack of public interest in a story the public wrongfully expects had already been settled.
The Wait and Switch! The end result is no divestment or at best a pretend divestment of conflicts of interest that is allowed to stand! The spirit of the law that should be respected by the leader of our country is moot. Trump specialized in subversion of the genuine ethics involved when law meets money. A president who boasts publicly that his not paying taxes to this country means that he is smart. A president who shafts workers and creditors by using bankruptcy as a revenue generator (lead by example anyone).
Public officials in high office and ones involved in State Department decisions with foreign governments should not be tainted by conflict of interest issues.
They weren’t until Trump.
It gets increasingly scarier that this man is intending to impose his Trumped up version of government on us, whether our laws prohibit such things as his obvious conflict of interest issues or those of his supposed surrogate - his son-in-law!
Was Trump the dottering old geezer that had a media presence that would enable him to get elected and Kushner was the real subverter of our constitutional form of government? Did the Repubs come on board with Trump based on Kushner running the administration. Bannon is another semi-figurehead though he is a true bait and switch. He being the bait and Kushner the smart one being the switch?
This whole administration is waiting - delaying - it is getting scary that they do since one must wonder just what they are waiting on? Let’s hope it is not a sudden ‘Next War’ scenario.
