Pundits Need to stop asking this stupid question

I keep hearing them wondering why the Trump administration does not come clean and put all the info out to avoid the drip drip and put it behind them.

You would think the answer is obvious. They don't because the truth is worse than the drip drip. They are traitors fully embroiled with the Russians politically, financially, via compromat, etc..

Apparently these pundits think it's a typical D.C. Scandal you can treat using the usual PR methods.

1. That drip, drip method is working for their base though. Still can't convince them otherwise.

2. That hardcore base will be with them even if they're perp-marched.

We should never waste time trying to reach them.

6. I think the base's problem is easy to understand

Who they gonna turn to for "true reporting"? See the problem? They'll never know the truth, they have no source for it.

3. This is likely to be one of those situations where the crimes

are actually worse than the cover-up.

4. Additionally they always believe the response from team tRump

you would think after multiple lies every comment from team tRump would be prefaced with "according to tRump" or "the tRump administration claims...."

5. In truth, Trump could probably ADMIT treason, money laundering and throwing the election

And no Congressperson or Trump supporter would raise an eyebrow.

Trump was right: he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue in broad daylight and get away with it. Similarly, he could have committed treason, but the crime will not penetrate the right wingers. As long as they cling on to power, any threat to it is simply liberal dissembling.

The court of public opinion will not force Trump or the Republicans to take any action whatsoever. The special counsel will be the true arbiter of justice here, but that adjudication seems to be years away.

I shuddered yesterday when I considered that Trump's counsel should simply advise him to admit to all the crimes. Justice would certainly not be administered swiftly, and a change in circumstances in the world political arena may kick that can even further down the road.
