I would never ever consider option one, ever.
Option 2 & 3 are the only two I can fathom.
I am 100% sure that it is #2, President Trump was a man all alone in cesspool of corruption. To accomplish his plan to drain the swamp and save America he needed help. He needed people he could trust. An almost impossible task to say the least. In fact it was indeed impossible, those he trusted the most, failed him and stabbed him in the back every chance they could.
2) All those people are patriots, and there was a plan, but the plan has failed and perhaps patriots didn't have as much control as they thought.
As I said, I am 100% convinced that #2 is what happened, but I still pray that I’m wrong.
