We live in the wake of the tides of information (news) just as the oceans crash on the sandy beaches and rock barriers. Low tides are eras of no information, and the high tides bring in the fresh sprays of knowledge from the depths of the seas. Such is the case as we remember Daniel Ellsberg, who recently passed on at the age of 92, and how he was able to expose the dirty secrets of our nation's leaders as we drifted into the Vietnam War. We remember Ellsberg for his actions in obtaining and revealing actions by his government that were deceitful and designed to cover up what the American people had a right to know. Exposure of top secret and classified material is severely guarded by many federal agencies, and is considered to be treasonous enough to warrant a lock up for life in prison. Trying to compare Ellsberg to Trump? No, that does not work one bit. Ellsberg was determined to see that the American people were being deprived of knowledge that they had every right to know. Trump, why did he remove and keep, and fail to turn back documents that rightly belonged in the National Archives. We know what he did; there are 37 separate charges. But, do we know why? Ask him directly in front of a jury as to the WHY of his purported crimes? I think it is because of all of his past career moves as a being a thug, failing to pay for services rendered, and the altogether art of bullying his way out of accountability. He was perhaps keeping them as a trophy, or trying to find something that proved his machismo in being a president, or he may have had a plan to monetize information for his own personal use. He does have a reputation of being the Supreme Grifter.
