What about when DNI Coats interrupted a meeting Deputy Dir. Sue Gordon was in??!

Washington (CNN)The country's No. 2 intelligence official, Sue Gordon, knew it was likely she would have to eventually step down from her post, but the timing of that decision became more urgent on Thursday after her boss -- outgoing spy chief Dan Coats -- interrupted a meeting she was holding on election security and asked his deputy to submit her letter of resignation, sources familiar with the events told CNN.

While details of the conversation between Gordon, an intelligence veteran of more than 30 years, and Coats remain unclear, sources say that the situation clearly abruptly changed after the meeting was interrupted.

It was such a bizarre, urgent HAIR ON FIRE episode

Did they both know about the Russian bounty atrocity? Yes, right? (Right??) Did the urgency of getting her out of there have anything to do with that?

Well, I guess we’ll know someday, but that was just a really weird episode

arrgghh

1. It's confusing right now. Thought Bolton briefed earlier than August 2019

2. seriously doubt that bounty intel

(which is not nearly the bombshell that the news cycle is trying to make it out) was at issue here.
Don't doubt that something was in the wind .. but I just don't think this was it.
