David Petraeus – the former US army general and CIA director who was prosecuted for mishandling classified information – has entered the race to become Donald Trump’s secretary of state, diplomatic sources said on Thursday.This is going to be just too good, as the Right, which has spent years lambasting Hillary Clinton over classified emails, will now give Petraeus a pass over mishandling classified documents.
Petraeus resigned in November 2012 after the FBI discovered he had had an affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, and had shared classified information with her. He eventually pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge for mishandling the information. People who have seen him recently say he is anxious to return to public life and has privately refused to rule out serving in a Trump administration.
Meanwhile, Trump is getting foreign policy advice from Henry Kissinger, probably the most notorious unindicted war criminal alive.
Meanwhile, it seems that Secaucus Fats was let go because he prosecuted Trump's son-in-law's dad for various bits of financial fuckery. Said son-in-law seems to want to get a top post in the Trump Wes Wing, but the Bobby Kennedy Nepotism Laws might stop that.
Yep, this is going to be good to watch, in a trainwreck-sense of the word.
