The demarcation line between a reasonable argument and gibberish maps our prejudices. Funny how that works.

But seriously: Investing enormous energies into pretending to be doing something is as old as politics.

And the Administration has shown no willingness to prosecute people who matter. Yet this stance is probably not one they want to take openly when elections are coming up.
Sums up to non business meetings and institutional maneuvering.

fair point, but NK has alleged "kabuki" or some other form of elaborate deception steadily since 2009. Seems like it would be a lot easier to just yell than to set up a potential disaster with an angry and disappointed high profile group of AGs, no? Schneiderman points out that state law is much stronger, but the states have not had the resources - which they now do.
