It's the he's-too-stupid-to-commit-actual-treason defense:
In private, three administration officials conceded that they could not publicly articulate their most compelling — and honest — defense of the president: that Mr. Trump, a hasty and indifferent reader of printed briefing materials, simply did not possess the interest or knowledge of the granular details of intelligence gathering to leak specific sources and methods of intelligence gathering that would do harm to United States allies.Those three administration officials sure have a great view of their boss! So why do they remain administration officials? Isn't there a point at which they realize they don't have to put up with his nonsense? Anyone who leave right now is sure to have some nice lucrative opportunities as talkative Trump administration defector. Grab those opportunities now, before the market is saturated!
