21. I think Trump learned from Xi that COVID was airborne

because that information, although speculative and based on one study, came out much earlier than most people remember, and it was published in a study out of China.

We don't have to speculate about what might have happened if Woodward had released the tape early, because we actually saw yesterday what Trump would have done if Woodward had released the tape: lied and spun, just like he always does. "I was exaggerating... It was taken out of context... I wanted to be positive... It was a perfect call." It would be long forgotten today.

What cracks me up about these "He should have come forward sooner" posts is that dozens of people have come forward and even testified damaging-as-hell information about Trump over the last three years and Trump always escaped culpability and removal.

And that tape, had Woodward released it, would now be a distant, fleeting memory just like Trump pulling our troops out of Syria after a call with Erdogan and the subsequent slaughter of the Kurds, and all the other abominations Trump committed. Hell, there were things in the very first book, Fire and Fury, that could have put away any other president. Jared Kushner and his bullshit Top Secret security clearances, his relationship with MbS, abuse of funds for the Inauguration, violations of the emoluments clause, Manafort and Mike Flynn, a First Lady who doesn't want to live with her husband, firing of Comey, etc...

Who here remembers Fiona Hill's devastating testimony today? That should have been enough to put Trump out of office. And we could say that about dozens of other people, including Cohen. Any one of them, had this been any other presidential administration, could have set into motion the removal of a president.

Woodward isn't a saint, but what I am appreciating is the timing of all this. Same for Mattis waiting to come forward, Bolton, these DHS people, and Miles Taylor, and these others.
