    .....to do with wanting to separate his legacy, made more urgent for him because of his heart problems, from the growing scandal which probably will reach to Summers and Rubin in some form?

    His adminstration will be blamed if only by history and so he figures the best he can do is seize the debate early, go on the offensive and blame the ministers.

    It's a legacy issue now that sunshine is starting to flood in. I'd love to think he's coordinated it with Obama but Clinton has always been only about himself.

      I think you might be right about the legacy. I just think the timing is related to light flooding in (why would Clinton have mea culpa'd when nothing had happened yet?)
