In January, Chuck Schumer warned Trump not to criticize the intelligence community, because of all the ways they have to destroy people. I guess he was right. His exact words while speaking to Rachel Maddow were: “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.” I watched the video, and I will list it here for the readers. I will never forget Schumer looking into the camera, and one could feel he was threatening President Trump, and it was chilling.
Dennis Kucinich, a former presidential candidate for the Democratic Party, in an interview on Fox Business Network claimed that the US intelligence community was responsible for leaking information that led to the resignation of Mike Flynn. I really respect Kucinich for being open and honest with the public, as we try to make sense out of General Flynn’s resignation. I am one who is very upset with the loss of Flynn, as he had such insight into the criminal acts of Hillary Clinton. While saying this, I am very saddened and disappointed to see an investigation into the Trump White House, while hearing not one thing of an investigation into Hillary Clinton. Clinton is the true criminal, but at this very moment she is sitting on top of the world watching the Intelligence Community destroy President Trump. Of course, that is the whole goal of the Liberals, and so far Washington is supporting them…the criminal cabal is winning. And all we see from the side who wants to challenge that criminal cabal’s authority is losing.
Dennis Kucinich makes the argument that the goal was to worsen the relationship between Russian and the US. Trump has argued for improving US relations with Russia. He seems to think that is how the whole war started between President Trump and the Intelligence Community. I have read so many horror stories on the CIA lately, I would love to see it “go out of business.” I am making a much dreaded prediction here: the CIA will accomplish removing Trump from office and getting Pence in as President. I find this current situation to be headed in that direction. I further no longer trust VP Pence. That is all I will say about my feelings.
Kucinich goes on to say, and I quote: “What’s at the core of this is an effort by some in the intelligence community to upend any positive relationship between the U.S. and Russia. And I tell you there’s a marching band and Chowder Society out there. There’s gold in them there hills. There are people trying to separate the U.S. and Russia so that this military industrial intel axis can cash in.”
“Flynn is a figure with a dark side, but hype regarding an ‘illegal’ meeting with Russian ambassador never made sense. I’m glad he’s gone, but the leaks hinting Logan Act treason should be recognized as ‘intelligence community’ political manipulation. The Logan Act is a dead letter and even if it were not, the facts of this case don’t support its application. If it would apply to anything recent, the Logan Act would apply to the letter organized by Tom Cotton regarding Iran in 2015, but hawk Cotton never paid any price.”
We can expect more and more revelations to back the narrative that not just Flynn but Trump have had treasonous dealings with Russia and Putin. The rush of establishment papers to print the latest revelations has little to do with news but everything to do with creating even more disapproval of Trump in the public mind. While there may be a degree of truth in the revelations about Flynn the leaking of the information is a sign that the intelligence community is attempting to control the political situation in the United States. They have plenty of experience overthrowing governments.
However, other parts of the deep state such as many in the Wall Street establishment may be hesitant to have the Trump administration go. It is after all a very pro-business government. Even today US stock markets again reached new highs. There are many members of the Wall Street elite within the administration. No doubt they hope that an accommodation can be reached between Trump and his administration with the intelligence community. However, it may be that Mike Pence is being prepared to replace Donald Trump.
The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said Tuesday that the most significant question posed by the resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn is why intelligence officials eavesdropped on his calls with the Russian ambassador and later leaked information on those calls to the press.
“I expect for the FBI to tell me what is going on, and they better have a good answer,” said Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which is conducting a review of Russian activities to influence the election. “The big problem I see here is that you have an American citizen who had his phone calls recorded.”
