Is there a “Deep State” coup in motion against Donald Trump?
The media has tried to dismiss the leaks from the intelligence community as business as usual for Washington.
But some professionals see the knives are out and it’s leading them to level accusations of treason.
The leaks that took down National Security Advisor Michael Flynn – and alleged Trump campaign officials and associates were in contact with Russian nationals – came from intercepted electronic communications.
These are some of America’s most closely guarded secrets.
And their revelation suggests a campaign is being conducted with the intention of sabotaging the Trump administration.
The Daily Caller reports Flynn was forced out by a “hit job” orchestrated by former Obama officials:
“National Security Advisor Gen. Michael T. Flynn (ret.) — who resigned Monday — was the victim of a “hit job” launched by intelligence operatives, Obama government holdovers and former Obama national security officials, according to former intelligence officials who spoke with The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.
The talk within the tight-knit community of retired intelligence officers was that Flynn’s sacking was a result of intelligence insiders at the CIA, NSA and National Security Council using a sophisticated “disinformation campaign” to create a crisis atmosphere. The former intel officers say the tactics hurled against Flynn over the last few months were the type of high profile hard-ball accusations previously reserved for top figures in enemy states, not for White House officials.
“This was a hit job,” charged retired Col. James Williamson, a 32-year Special Forces veteran who coordinated his operations with the intelligence community.
Noting the Obama administration first tried to silence Flynn in 2014 when the former president fired him as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Williamson called Monday’s resignation, “stage Two of ‘Kill Mike Flynn.”
Some are worried the scheme is ultimately a plot to take Trump out.
The Daily Caller also reports:
“The knives are out,” said Frederick Rustman, who retired after 24 years from the CIA’s Clandestine Service and was a member of its elite Senior Intelligence Service.
The intelligence community’s sprawling bureaucracy is organizing to topple the Trump presidency, Rustman charged in an interview with TheDCNF.
“I would not be surprised if Trump did not finish four years because of the vendetta they have out for him,” he said, calling the move on Flynn just a “mini-vendetta.”
Williamson told TheDCNF in an interview, “I truly believe it’s orchestrated and it’s part of an overall strategy. The objective is to piece-by-piece, dismantle the Trump administration, to discredit Trump. This is part of an overarching plan.”
And there are Trump supporters who believe this conduct of former Obama officials to dismantle the Trump Presidency amounts to treason.
If true, a massive house cleaning needs to happen ASAP. This is treason. https://t.co/jgxjuDSEuv
