"I wish her well, frankly." The orchestrated cover-up!

At the July 21st press conference Steve Nelson of the New York Post was allowed a non-corona follow-up question and asked about Ghislaine Maxwell. I think it was the only non-coronavirus-related question and was asked as a follow-up, one of the few he allowed that day.

Based on his articles, Steve Nelson seems to be a Trump-friendly reporter.


I contend Nelson was asked by the administration to ask this question so Trump could be sure to get his message to Maxwell which implies he's afraid of what she might reveal, whether concerning himself or his friends like Alan Dershowitz.

The message is obvious to everyone, but the probable orchestration (planting the question) has been pretty much ignored by everyone, but it points to Trump's planning, his deliberate attempt to give her this message and shows the level of fear he has that she will try to reduce her sentence by "naming names.".


Why couldn't he wait for this question to come up naturally (not in a Covid-19 dominated event)? Had Maxwell shown signs of possible cooperation? Had Barr relayed her negotiations with prosecutors? And why is Trump so worried that he had this question deliberately planted?

1. I doubt trump would need to "get her a message" using national TV.

In fact, why would he wait until now -- after she has been arrested and possibly had a chance to cut a deal for info -- when it's been clear she was going to be arrested for months?

2. Good points!

But thast's the same message he sent to Flynn and Manafort and in the same manner.

Perhaps he thinks if he does it publicly, the message will have additional validity to the recipient.

So, . . the answer is: I don't know, but that is the way he's done it in the past.

3. I don't KNOW either. But, if he is asked about Maxwell, Flynn, Manafort, and says just about

anything -- other than lock that MFer up for life -- people are going to say he's sending them a message. I just think, if he's sending a message, he did it some other way than on national TV. Admittedly, he's a buffoon, so logic doesn't always work with him.
