His underlings are - especially Barr, whose recent diligent activity is inexplicable as a mere corrupt Trump minion running errands for his boss. Trump is not an aberration or isolated outlier from the fascist movement that has taken over the Republican Party, he's a main line central representative - and his tenure in office is an opportunity; now that their hopes for a four year extension of that opportunity have been squelched they have kicked things into gear for the couple of months they have left. Check out the pattern of resignations and replacements in the Pentagon and DOJ and NSA and so forth, for example, especially in the Homeland Security "intelligence" agencies and civil service positions from which a Biden administration cannot dismiss without official cause, and among "acting" status officials who do not face public confirmation hearings. General Tata, for example, who was so obviously unfit he could not get confirmed by McConnell's Senate, has that new job. http://pulse.ncpolicywatch.org/2020...on-be-top-pentagon-policy-official-after-all/ and there's lots more - overview: http://yastreblyansky.blogspot.com/2020/11/paranoia-everywhere.html Remember the rule of thumb: if you want to know what the Republicans are up to, start with what they are accusing other people of doing - in this case the guys who feed the media under cover of Trump's big mouth and public shitshow have been stepping up their claims that various ambiguously identified foes of the Trump administration have been manning a "deep State" operation to undermine his Presidency and destroy him personally. (We've been seeing the sullage from that wash up even here, in the Bandarlog posts). The chaos and distraction Trump is creating now is being put to use - it's always been his primary value to his supporters, if it's his only one for the next couple months that's not a severe loss.
