We only hear a fraction of what really goes on.

I totally agree. We should not hear a lot. We are not trained experts. It will all come out in books. Many, many books.

I hope so, eventually. We deserve to know.

Do we if it means exposing security? I am sorry Bolton is gone but I have to assume Trump knows something I do not. Others have been let go and they were not totally following orders. One man was upset because he lost his security clearance after being fired. That means that he would not make as much money as a consultant in private business.

They all go on to very cushy jobs after they leave an administration.  A friend’s son worked directly for Obama’s election team. After he left office, the son got a very nice job in private industry which he had no qualifications for, other than campaign work. Literally.  He’s a young man with a huge future due to politics.  I can’t say the name of the business, but it’s one everyone is familiar with.

I am sure it works out very well for most. I grew up thinking volunteers for campaigns were truly volunteers. Boy, I sure learned a lot later on.

People who sit in local offices are just volunteers. I did it a few times and was never offered a job. This person was a paid strategist with no prior experience other than a college degree.

Volunteering looks good on a resume'. A relative did it for a commissioner. He got a nice job out of it later on. Of course, he had an excellent package, starting with Eagle Scout, private boys school and a job in news. He did very well financially in his life but had 4 wives.

4 wives could be a deal breaker.

As far as I know, 4 has been a lucky number for him. His dad had 6.
