If you thought talk of the intel community trying to take out President Donald Trump is the stuff of conspiracy theory and John LeCarre novels, you would be wrong.
Not only are they doing it, they’re even confessing to it on Twitter.
From Daily Caller:
John Schindler, a former National Security Agency analyst and current columnist for the New York Observer, said Wednesday that the intelligence community will go “nuclear” against President Donald Trump.
The national security columnist also quoted a senior intelligence official telling him that Trump “will die in jail.” “Now we go nuclear. [Intelligence community] war going to new levels. Just got an [email from] from senior [intelligence community] friend, it began: ‘He will die in jail,’” Schindler tweeted.
Multiple intel people have not only been celebrating the leaks on Twitter, but justifying the effort as a legitimate effort to take Trump out.
ABC News chief foreign correspondent Terry Moran tweeted, “If this source is for real, talk of a ‘Deep State’ coup aren’t insane. [The president] will ‘die in jail’? Who do you think you are?”
The former NSA analyst stood by his comment and said, “Surprisingly, some US spies consider [the president] colluding with [Russian intelligence services] + Kremlin, [including] election theft, to be kinda treason-y.”
But once again not only has there been no finding that there was any collusion with Russia, but investigators have actually cleared them of any issues.
Even assuming there were criminal actions or Russian connections that were serious, there are options that intel can pursue besides illegally leaking things to the media or operating a coup.
This is truly scary stuff going on here…
