Nick Ayers is a political genius, managing to wow both President Trump and Vice President Pence, stay above the fray in the food fights within the White House, and rapidly ascend the political hierarchy at a young age.

But when a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to serve as President Trump’s chief of staff came along, he astonished most political commentators and apparently Trump himself by saying no. You have to wonder why.

For a young, ambitious, hungry politico to “spend more time with his family” and “move back to Georgia” instead of step into a high-profile, powerful role for the leader of the free world, something has to be going on. So what is it?

What does Ayers know that we don’t? Dirt on Trump? Or Pence? A plot by the Deep State to trick him into declining? Does a foreign country known for meddling in our politics have some leverage against him? Inquiring minds want to know!
