Something to Know - 9 May

Has anyone noticed that the number 18 has a significance in the annals of presidential scandal?

In the Nixon Watergate investigation, Rosemary Woods was found to have an 18 minute erasure gap in a very incriminating tape recording, which eventually contributed to the RMN's downfall.

Yesterday, the testimony of former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, there is evidence of an 18-day gap from the moment that the Trump's White House knew of probable Russian control of National Security Advisor - Michael Flynn.  Kompromat  (Компромиссis)  the Russian term for one being blackmailed, and Yates told the White House, in no uncertain terms, that Michael Flynn was misleading the President, Vice President, and the American people.   Why did it take 18 days for Flynn's termination, in addition to the fact that the outgoing president, Obama, personally told Trump not to hire Flynn?

18 is the new unlucky 13 for presidents.
Trump has the intellectual depth of a coat of paint.
