One thought on “Trump’s mistake: hiring people with integrity

  1. The complication is that people have reputations. The Trump campaign hired BRG because the public would trust its report. But the campaign wasn’t willing to pay BRG enough to burn its reputation.

    In parallel, a lot of parts of The System were staffed with people who believe in The System, and Trump’s attempts to suborn them into a coup failed. By the time the Jan. 6 riot rolled around, his situation was hopeless. Trump could mess things up but even Pence wasn’t willing to betray the constitution, even though it cost him his job.
