Just How Frayed Are Nerves Getting In Trump’s Inner Circle?

It was “the end of a very long day that at 10 p.m. was not yet over.’’ That’s how a spokesperson from Trump’s personal attorney Marc Kasowitz explained the lawyer’s profanity-laced, brutally threatening email exchange with someone he apparently does not even know. The Kasowitz tirade included gems like “watch your back, bitch.”

The unidentified stranger had originally sent a message to Kasowitz suggesting he resign. That’s after ProPublica reported Kasowitz is not seeking government security clearance, speculating that might be because of past problems with alcohol abuse.

We are familiar with security clearance procedure, and we find it interesting (and sensible) that one of the most serious lines of investigation is always whether there’s a danger the applicant might get drunk and “spill the beans.”

“This is one of those times where one wishes he could reverse the clock, but of course I can’t”, Kasowitz further said.
