McCabe explains that Trump believed Putin over US intel about NK missiles: "Intel officials [told Trump his position] was not consistent with any of the intel our govt possesses. To which POTUS replied, 'I don't care. I believe Putin.'"

I've started an opening series here. Please drop your Nats vs Marlins series-specific thoughts, including live thoughts, into this thread. General thoughts stay here (thank you WizardsPride for starting this thread).
