8. I'm sticking with the "Pilot fish" theory of Lindsey Graham.

Woodward's first book on Trump, Fear, depicts Graham as starstruck by how close his relationship with Trump became. Graham, for a while at least, thought he had tremendous influence over Trump, and loved being the guy Trump called at midnight to vent, and to play golf with. He attaches himself to the biggest whale.

I'm open to the blackmail theory, but Graham's relationship with Trump is not the relationship most people would have with their blackmailer.

When John McCain died, so did Graham's Jiminy Cricket (his conscience).

At some point the adolescent infatuation gave way to fear, because Trump stopped listening so much to Graham and, in Graham's estimation, Trump has immense power, even after being roundly defeated in this election.
