Back to this thought. The book is painting him as far too stupid to be conscious (I. E. legally culpable) of any wrongdoing. 

 

in america? we execute the intellectually disabled for their crimes. no one's too stupid to be culpable.

I'm really struck by how flat footed Trump has been in his handling of this news cycle. Trump can usually play the media and cry fake news and everyone forgets about the controversy of the day. But he keeps allowing it to linger by responding to it constantly.

Intent is an element of plenty of crimes. I'm not done with the book, but it seems to be painting him in a light where a collusion case would lack mens rea

I think he was just really really intrigued by the gorilla thing and has been doing some serious self-reflecting/gorilla suit purchasing.
