  • MORE CIA SPECULATION: On Tom Cotton.
Speculation that another Donald Trump cabinet shakeup could send Sen. Tom Cotton to head the CIA continues, here in Axios.

Apart from the obvious peril to the well-being of the United States in such a move, Arkansans  might take local comfort in believing that Gov. Asa Hutchinson would have a hard time finding someone colder or less compassionate as an interim U.S. senator until the seat could be filled by election.

Cotton's good relationship with Trump is cited as one reason for his emergence as a top candidate. Another double-edged sword.
