    Rick understands one thing about this process … it’s a matter, in some respects, of public opinion. This is his first salvo at manipulating enough public opinion to keep his ass out of jail.

    Rick is not in a fight to keep his job. He’s fighting to keep two assistants from rolling to the FBI and naming him as the one that pressured them into engaging in Conspiracy to Commit Bribery.
