(NOTE) Wonder why Trump is trying to run out the clock until the 2020 elections? Because there's a growing body of evidence that the pro-Trump attack on America by the Kremlin in mid-2020 will be so powerful it can't be stopped—and will ensure a Trump win.  https://www.forbes.com/sites/zakdoffman/2019/09/24/new-cyberwarfare-report-unveils-russias-secret-weapon-against-us-2020-election/#711623ba68f5 

PS/ Of all Trump's treacherous betrayals of his country, the most important is one we never talk about: he's deliberately left America naked to a massive 2020 Russian cyberattack—not to mention attacks from Saudi Arabia, Israel and the UAE—that he knows will carry him to victory.

PS2/ It's always seemed bizarre to me that *more than a year before* the 2020 election, Trump's favorite talking point is Democrats "can't win"—especially as the next time Trump wins the popular vote will be his first. He seems to be narrative-building for a shady win he expects.

PS3/ To be clear, I'm *not* implying Trump has some advance knowledge of what the Russians, Saudis, Israelis and Emiratis are planning. That'd be silly. What I *am* saying is that Trump knows—as we *all* do—that the cavalry *is* coming to aid Trump in one form or another in 2020.
