Why is Trump Gutting National Security in His Final days?

Possible answers:

1. Putin intends to invade the Baltic States and wants to be sure the US will not object

2. Putin intends to create a phony 911 to force the US into a new war in the Middle East (probably against Iran) in order to boost the price of oil

3. Among the newly appointed Trump "loyalists" are some KGB trolls who will take this chance to steal US security secrets and plant malicious software in our national defense computer network.Even if the new appointees are vetted, they can then bring in underlings who will fly under the security radar.

4. Jared Kushner wants to raid our national defense secrets so that he will have something to sell once his father-in-law leaves office. This includes raiding domestic spying information that can later be used for blackmail purposes.

5. The new "loyalists" will lay the groundwork for something really bad that will happen during the early days of the Biden administration so they can say "I told you so."

6. Trump is delusional and is dreaming of a white military coup for Christmas.

3. Trump really doesn't give a shit about the country or the people, only what benefits him

personally. He faces a rough road ahead and likely could give a crap about what happens to the US. I think he is working hard and his thugs to hand off the worst situation possible to Joe Biden.

7. Or, he is allowing some loyalists to pad their resumes

heard it come up on the lawfare podcast, and thought, hmm, could just as easily be that.

Being a vengeful dick by firing people in his last hurrah, plus letting some loyalists get a new CV entry.

8. Hiding evidence and revenge

against people who didn't blindly support him. I doubt he's coherent enough to understand, much less execute, any of the other options.

As far as "raiding our national defense secrets" ... that horse left the barn eons ago
