“I think there’s a separation in Trump’s mind between the nuclear deal and then Iran’s maligned behavior in the region which I think Trump is willing to accept more of because fundamentally he doesn’t think that’s our problem,” said Continetti. “So, he can bash the nuclear issue all the time, he doesn’t want Iran to be a nuclear power, but when it comes to this gray zone conflict between Iran, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States, and Yemen, and the UAE, Trump is not interested.”

Bloomberg News reporter Sahil Kapur explained that the biggest piece of the fire in Saudi Arabia was that it will increase gas prices for Trump’s voters. After the GOP passed a tax bill that ultimately gave more to the wealthy instead of Trump’s supporters. Todd noted that the one thing that would increase gas prices more is an attack on Iran.

According to the Washington Post, a huge block of hotel rooms was purchased by the Saudis at Trump hotels after he was elected. They reportedly stayed somewhere else, but did purchase the hotel room block.

Flannery said that the backlash of Barr's intrusion is there are many who feel isolated or intimidated from speaking out against illegal or unethical things they witness.

"What they're doing is trying to erase the parallel case that was just the subject of the impeachment, because what [Roger] Stone is charged with was interfering in our election in 2016," explained Flannery. "And then obstructing the investigation by the Intelligence Committee into that interference, and causing them to lie and threaten and so forth. So, they'd like to erase that."
