Just Trying To Impress The Boss

I suppose this is a trial balloon for a Trump defense - all his underlings worship him and were just trying to impress him and if any laws were broken, well, Trump didn't know a thing about it.

“My fear is that a bunch of people were freelancing—doing things not thinking about the repercussions, but thinking Trump would be so impressed by it,” said one person close to the president. He said that with all the resources the government is putting toward the investigation, “they’re going to want a return.” And in a climate like that, any misguided meeting, bluntly worded email, or undisclosed contact with a Russian official—whether or not Trump himself knew about it—could surface as an incriminating bombshell.

Lawyer up, kids, he's gonna send you all to jail...
