Presidential Poker

“If you play poker with a guy named Doc often enough, you learn to watch his hands carefully when it is his turn to hold the deck. It’s the same for the American people when the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), the Intelligence Community, and the FBI sit down at their table. The game right now is, ‘Will he or won’t he?’ Will Attorney General Merrick Garland indict Donald Trump on something related to classified information held at Mar-a-Lago? Everyone is holding their cards tight to the vest, but the deal just passed to the DNI, and the game is about to get serious. Stakes are high; in the pot is the presidency of the United States.” (09/12/22)
