“Once things begin leaking, there’s oft no way to stem the leaking, short of, killing, the leaky. Assassinations, political. At times,
timely stitches in time, save lives later. Vlad’s got a lot to lose even if Bolton but, weakens me, over time.”
“Vlad’s got a lot to lose. He’s got a lot invested in me; in time; in rubles. More than ye, shall — ever know. Almost — everything
gets lost in history. More than ye shall ever, know. In the sacking of cities and the great library at Alexandria’s sinking.”
“Almost everything gets lost in history. As in sackings of cities and the sinking of the great library at Alexandria. Vlad’s got a lot to lose.
He’s got a lot invested in me; in time; in rubles. More than ye shall know. What’s worse is he refuses to lose.”
“Verily Vladimir’s got a lot invested in me; in time; and in rubles (and dollars). More than ye shall know. What’s worse, he refuses to lose.
Losing’s for others, he figures. As do all the strongmen. They mistakenly think, they’ve got nothing … to lose.”
“Into uncharted legal waters, ventures, America. I know the academic consensus: Criminal conduct on my part’s not required on

“Rudy Giuliani. My, Ray Cohn. American dirt, on the hoof. Tho he’s been dirtied (by me) and sealed our Faustian deal by my hand,
shaking, I myself won’t be sullied. I’ve got Teflon on. And immunity too to the toxin Vlad had injected, in both, of my hands.“
“I cannot be removed from office for demanding political favors if I believe my re-election is in the nation’s, interest. I know
what everybody knows. My reelection will be good for the country. On my watch, everything and anything, I say I believe, goes.”
