  • CNN: Stolen letter from desk in Woodward's book. Gary Cohn member of "resistance"

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/06/polit...rd-book-trade/


    In an attempt to discredit Bob Woodward's new book, President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he "read another phony thing in the book about a trade deal that certain people didn't want me to look at." But CNN has obtained a copy of the book, and here is the letter.

    The document is reproduced in Woodward's book and is an example of how top White House aides would steal and hide documents from Trump that they believed to be a danger to national security. In this case, former White House chief economic adviser Gary Cohn swiped the draft letter off the Oval Office desk to prevent Trump from signing it, terminating a critical trade agreement with South Korea.


    and just a reminder about Gary Cohn

    NEW YORK ó President-elect Donald Trump is expected to name a top Goldman Sachs executive, Gary Cohn, to lead the National Economic Council, handing the Wall Street veteran significant sway over his administrationís economic policy.

    Gary David Cohn (born August 27, 1960) is an American investment banker who served as the 11th Director of the National Economic Council and was the chief economic advisor to President Donald Trump from 2017 to 2018.

    One clarification is that we do not know if Gary Cohn was the anonymous author. But considering the evidence, Woodward's credibility and the reproduction of the specific letter in the book, it seems that Gary Cohn was one of the members of the resistance...

      He has already left the administration

      From wiki

      On March 6, 2018, Cohn announced his intention to resign; the announcement followed Trump's proposal to impose import tariffs on steel and aluminum, and Trump's cancellation of a meeting with end-users of steel and aluminum that Cohn had arranged in an attempt to dissuade the president from the planned tariffs.[36] He was replaced by Larry Kudlow[37] on April 2

        Someone who left the government can not be a member of the ''resistance ''

          Now!

          This was not the case a few months ago when he was still the chief economic advisor (who Trump chose).

            "Resistance", as in "opposed to the legal government of America", as in "traitor". I wonder how many "resistance" people the Democrats will tolerate.
            Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes? Who is watching the watchers?

              The more the "resistance" speaks out the more proof Trump has that the swamp needs drained. The more the lame stream media attacks Trump the less they are trusted by middle America. The fact that Trump doesn't actually do anything to drain the swamp makes it look like his strategy is to use opposition against itself. The anti Trump people have painted themselves into a corner.

              Bringing Obama out is going to help Trump, after all Obama presided over the unraveling of the Democrats, losing the house, losing middle-class America, alienating libertarians and progressives, making identity politics toxic, transparently weaponizing the bureaucracies to the consternation of anyone in touch with reality, lying about his Russia policies, lying about his economic record, so on and so forth. Obama seems to have forgotten that his popularity only stopped tailspinning after he stopped talking.

                Okay question...

                Who should we criticize (or praise ) for the economy in the next election? Should it be Trump or the ring leader of the resistance?

                    Where did you read that in my answer?


                    That recession will come is inevitable with or without Trump. The business cycle is an economic fact
