Letter | Who has the most to gain from explosive op-ed?

Who wrote the explosive op-ed article on The Donald’s White House situation in the New York Times is generating much more interest than “Who Shot J.R.”? (see television hits, circa 1980s). Even Agatha Christie herself could not come up with a better fictitious who dunnit plot or situation.

Or, for movie buffs, this can be a classic, “I am Spartacus” moment, wherein numerous White House staffers, or Cabinet members, could take credit for the op-ed, to further confuse, and enrage, The Donald.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, of Sherlock Holmes fame, must be rolling over in his grave because no one has asked the obvious question: Who has the most to gain if little Donald Trump had to take a quick powder? There are no second acts or re-runs for the Oval Office. Elementary, Mr. Watson!

Thus, if I was a betting man, I would put my dinero on Veep Mike Pence. Who knows? Beneath that innocent, choir boy look, could be a sinister, cunning, Machiavellian mindset. Mike Pence would no longer have to play second fiddle in the biggest orchestra in the country, but would be “He da Man.”
